How I Healed My Body From Bouts of Anger Last Week

In all of its fury, anger is an emotion we need to handle delicately. The emotion can be felt by anyone, but it’s in how we deal with anger that can protect our health. When suppressed, anger manifests itself physically, negatively affecting our bodies. When released, anger can lead to big transformation, and our bodies are able to go back to a healthy, calm state. This blog post is meant to offer tips for how to release anger, based on how I dealt with my own last week.

I’m generally a very peaceful person, and it’s infrequent for me to feel rage. Last week, however, a few things happened that really irritated me and my arms broke out in a rash. The constant flood of adrenaline and increased heart rate was taking a toll on my body. I wasn’t going to let my emotions get the best of me, so here’s how I healed my mind and rash:

  1. Accept the feeling of anger. Admitting to feeling anger can feel vulnerable, which leads to suppressing it. By accepting that anger is present, releasing begins.
  2. Acknowledge sensations in the body. Tuning into the body with eyes closed and noticing physical signals from the feet up through the crown of the head provides awareness of where the body stores anger. These sensations might feel restricting, tight, short-winded, heavy, or achy. None of them are good for us, and bringing awareness to them starts to release suppression.
  3. Carve out a few minutes of breath work. The simple practice of slow breathing reduces stress immediately. Sending breath down into the areas of tension starts to loosen them up.
  4. Give the body permission to release rage. This affirmation, said out loud, heals: “I give myself permission to release all rage I currently feel inside of my body in order to protect my health, and move forward from the experience that taught me a lesson.”
  5. Talk or write about how anger feels in this situation. Expressing emotions is critical to the healing process. If applicable, speak with the person who caused anger, or write the feelings down. This practice brings emotion from inside to outside.
  6. Put yourself in a calm environment. The body wants to be in its natural feeling state of peace. Cozy up on the couch with a blanket, open a bedroom window, or make a cup of tea. A nature walk will also help calm the nerves and spike endorphins.
  7. Get lots of sleep. Adrenaline is tiring and the body seeks rest. Rest helps recenter the body and mind and is often a great remedy for feeling better.
  8. Rinse and repeat. Be patient. Anger can take time to subside. But with this plan, the anger should soften each day.

Moments of anger can happen to us all! But you don’t have to let it affect your overall health. Instead of neglecting it, which causes the body to drown in adrenaline and a high heart rate, take action towards releasing and see how quickly you heal.

Guest Blogger Spotlight: Tamar Weinberg – From Spiraling Down to Starting Up

Depression and anxiety suck the life out of you.

I know this because I’ve been there.

Early 2018 was particularly tough for me. Trauma and tragedy put me in a downward spiral. I spent my days in a dark room, barely wanting to wake up, let alone face the world.

When you’re in such an emotional state of turmoil and despair, you don’t really care how others look at you. After all, you’re not really even looking at yourself, but when you do, it isn’t good.

One day that changed for me. I don’t really know what motivated me to do something different, something outside of my tried and true “roll out of bed in sweats, pants, and Crocs (with socks!)” behavior. I tried on a little spritz of perfume, something I had worn before, but my perspective was different.When you’re at a low point, remember, you’re not doing things for other people. You’re doing things a little more selfishly.

That day was a turning point for me. I put perfume on as an inward experience and I felt great. Excited. Alive. I put on real clothes. I spent the rest of that day sniffing my wrists, feeling much better than I had in a long time.

It didn’t heal me overnight, but personal fragrance gave me a new perspective on living again.

Over the next few months, all I did was experiment with different scents, learn more, study more.

It felt amazing.

This much is true: Fragrance brought me out of my depression. I decided to commit my life to spread this message of self care for self worth. In an industry where fragrance is marketed as an element for sex appeal, do I go out to a brand and tell them to focus on wellness instead?

Nah.

So I decided to create my own.

Over the last few months, I’ve been working tirelessly on TAMAR, a high end artisan personal fragrance line — for everyone: TAMAR is fragrance for who you are. It’s aroma therapy, not aromatherapy.

Everyone deserves happiness and I truly believe that making fragrance an inward journey of self discovery has the ability to transform you.

If you’d like to learn more about the brand, sign up to the mailing list at TAMAR and stay tuned for the product launch.
