    Default Channeling anger!

    Has anyone of you ever done this?

    Does it work, is it healthy, do you recommend it...?

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking.

    I haven't done this on purpose, I am sure I have done it though. In general, Anger makes me uncomfortable to be honest. I would think there'd be a good use for it.. art possibly. However, I wouldn't think it would be productive in dealing with people or business situations. I wouldn't think it would be healthy as it's not healthy to be submerged in stress hormones (Cortisol) among others.

    Have you?

    Have you?
    I have heard people say on countless many occasions to channel one's anger but I don't see how it could help because it's stressful. So I agree with you and No I haven't.

    But I bet that atleast a few people here might have tried it successfully which is why I started the thread.

    Whats so stressful about it?
    And now there came out of this building a form - human - was it human? ... It reminded me of symbolical images of Genius or Demon that are seen on Etruscan vases or limned on the walls of Eastern sepulchres - images that borrow the outlines of man, and are yet of another race.

    Is it not stressful to be submerged in anger (intentionally or unintentionally)?

    Or maybe for you to even question 'it' you must be knowing a way? I'm not arguing with you. Instead I'm implying that anger is stressful and if it isn't much of a stresser for you, you might know of a way to channel it or control it thereby is the perfect person to answer the OP by sharing with us your thoughts/methods on this.

    Well, I think peridically "flushing" my anger, within reason of course, works to keep my head clear. Experienceing anger doesnt stress me out, or it does, but this is not really unpleasant. I like the feeling of bodily strength and power I get while angry. I actually have to be careful not to indulge my anger too much. As far as channeling it, I dont know for sure, I tend to express it to the person who makes me angry in hopes that there will be change. Sometimes its not necessary to get angry at them, just talk. I find that channeling it like through music can make it worse since that seems like induglence in it.
