New Study Shows Jogging Does Not Reduce Stress

Unraveling the Myth of ‘Anger Rooms’: Study Finds Relaxation Techniques More Effective in Managing Anger”.

The popularity of “anger rooms” in the US and Europe has sparked a study aimed at challenging the effectiveness of expressing anger as a coping mechanism. Dr. Sofi Kerwick, one of the researchers involved in the study, aimed to prove that reducing arousal is key to releasing tension.

The research analyzed 154 studies involving over 10,000 participants from diverse backgrounds. The results were surprising: activities that increased physiological arousal and body heat did not have a significant impact on stress levels or feelings of anger. In fact, these activities often made these emotions worse.

On the other hand, activities like deep breathing, relaxation, meditation, yoga, muscle relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing, and taking a break were found to be effective in reducing anger. Surprisingly, running was identified as an activity that actually increased anger levels.

Prof. Brad Bushman from Ohio State University led the research team and emphasized that there is no scientific evidence to support the belief that intense physical activity helps with stress relief. He explained that while certain physical activities may be beneficial for heart health, they are not the best way to manage anger. While individuals may feel a temporary sense of relief from venting their anger, it can actually reinforce feelings of aggression in the long run. The study suggests that finding healthier and more constructive ways to manage anger is essential for overall well-being.
