is it normal to punch things when angry? The release of tension that brings us to acts of aggression when we're mad is thought to be stress-relieving. In fact, one 1999 study suggested that people who punched something when upset actually became angrier and more aggressive later on than those who didn't punch anything.

Accordingly, how do I stop myself from throwing up when angry?

Calm yourself. Avoid letting your anger control your actions. You might need to walk away from the situation for a few moments or collect your thoughts before reacting. Only try to handle the situation once you feel like you're able to engage with other people without throwing a tantrum.
