Your Health: 1-7-13 Expressing your anger
A new study shows expressing anger is healthy.
German researchers found people who express their anger live an average of two years longer than people who keep their angry feelings to themselves.
In an interview researchers found that people who internalized their rage were at risk for an elevated pulse, high blood pressure and other serious health problems.
The key is to express anger in an appropriate way.
One psychiatrist and stress management expert suggests people channel anger into something constructive, such as launching a petition or forming a group instead of throwing things or putting your fist through a wall.
