You likely didn’t receive much guidance or support for anger or irritability and these emotions often increase with age, hormone changes and stress. Jed Diamond, PhD has researched and written books on Irritable Male Syndrome. This powerful information could save your life, relationships and family.
Have you felt strong emotions, such as anger or irritability, and not known what to do with them?
They may create distance in your relationships, or even scare your partner or girlfriend. They can create conflict or get you fired.
But at the same time they are valid human emotions, that show up for a reason.
Many men find anger and irritability increase as they get older, go through hormone changes, take on more responsibility and have less time for themselves. Whether you turn to exercise, diet, therapy, conversation, meditation or other possible solutions, it’s important to understand why the emotions are currently surfacing and what your unique recipe is for relief.
Jed Diamond is one of the world’s most trusted and knowledgeable therapists for men. He has been working with men, researching and writing books for more than 40 years!
In this Man Alive Podcast conversation we cover:
- The 5 causes of Irritable Male Syndrome
- What a Scottish ram can teach you about your testosterone levels + a simple tool to assess the testosterone levels you were born with
- The first steps to take when you are frustrated or depressed (and perhaps blaming others for it)
- One powerful solution to the increased responsibility and isolation men face
- The invisible elephant in many couples’ relationships
This is an important topic for men’s health and well-being and it often gets overlooked or brushed aside. I highly recommend listening to this episode if any of this sounds familiar.
