How to Have a Healthy Tantrum

     "Unexpressed emotions tend to stay in the body like small ticking time bombs -- they are illnesses in incubation."  ~ Marilyn Van Derber, Miss America By Day

     Children tend to be more in touch with their emotions than adults. When their frustration levels get too high, they usually express themselves with a temper tantrum to release it.  They explode like a thunderstorm. And then like a storm, it passes. Afterwards, it is like the sun shining again and they feel better. But then we grow up and learn how to suppress our emotions.

     Emotional suppression creates disruptions in our energy that have been attributed to a host of health issues, from cancer to insomnia to chronic pain.  Even the conservative Center for Disease Control estimates 85% of all diseases has an emotional basis.

   Adults also need some form of emotional release as part of a healthy lifestyle. But you can't just drop on the floor at your workplace in front of your boss, or at home in front of your kids and start kicking and screaming when things don't go your way! What can you do when life becomes too much? Have a "tantrum" where and when its acceptable to do so.

  • Choose a time and place when you are alone or with someone who unconditionally accepts you.
  • Give yourself permission to express yourself freely without judging or censoring.
  • Stomp your feet or roll around on the floor is you feel like it.
  • Say out loud everything you've been holding inside.
  • Be as childish as you want.

     Allow yourself to do this for 10-20 minutes. Let the storm explode. Don't hold anything back. It will pass. No storm can last forever. Unless you try and contain it and suppress it. Then the effects of this unexpressed emotion incubate with potential serious health consequences.

      Its OK to release your frustration. Just do it in an appropriate way.
