Losing your cool could be good for you, as according to a new German study, people who express their anger live two years longer on average, than those who bottle up their rage.
After analyzing 6,000 patients, researchers found that those who internalized their angry feelings ran the risk of an elevated pulse, high blood pressure, and other serious ailments, CBS News reported.
Dr. Janet Taylor, a psychiatrist who specializes in stress management, explained how to express appropriate anger to reap its benefits to the channel.
She said that people who keep it in, who get depressed, certainly have a higher risk for having cardiovascular disease, like heart attacks and even sudden death.
But, she insists on the key word "appropriate," and that does not include throwing things or punching your fist through a wall.
She suggests channeling anger into something constructive, like forming a group or starting a petition.
She said people get angry when they don't get what they want. But when their response is to fly off the handle, what they want to focus on gets lost.
Taylor's advice is to not let anger seethe inside you, and she stressed the importance of not holding onto it. That's where it can trigger events with your heart
