Get Angry

It is good for you! Within reason of course.

Via Live Science

PITTSBURGH - Anger is good for you, as long as you keep it below a boil, according to new psychology research based on face reading.
People who respond to stressful situations with short-term anger or indignation have a sense of control and optimism that lacks in those who respond with fear. [...]

[...] So in maddening situations in which anger or indignation are justified, anger is not a bad idea, the thinking goes. In fact, it's adaptive, Lerner says, and it's a healthier response than fear.
Chronic, explosive anger or a hostile outlook on the world is still bad for you, contributing to heart disease and high blood pressure, research shows.
The new research supports the idea that humans have more than one uniform response to stress and that fear and anger provoke different responses from our nervous systems and the parts of our brain, such as the pituitary, that deal with tough situations. [...]

Here is a little song someone wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry get angry
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, get angry......
