Don't let anger win

- +

There is a Buddhist teaching that says you should conquer an angry person by not being angry, conquer a bad person by being good, conquer a stingy person by giving and conquer a liar by telling the truth. 

Speaking of conquering an angry person, sometimes there really is no need, because anger leads to stress, and stress will conquer the person in no time. When we are stressed out, we can't sleep. When we can't sleep, we can't exercise because our energy will be low (from being used by anger).

Some people smoke when they are under stress, or some overeat to cope with stress. It can be concluded that people who are stressed will get physically weaker due to lack of exercise, obesity, high blood pressure, high sugar level and high cholesterol level. Smokers are also at added risk due to having narrowed arteries.
