Anger is a valid emotion but if we hold onto it, our brains, minds and bodys suffer with increased flight or flight response and more negative moods that can turn into negative beliefs. Here's how to let it go so you can heal.

What You'll Need

  • Acknowledge, Move, Breath

What You'll Do

  • 1. Acknowledge it by saying it Out Load or in your head that you are feeling angry right now-this helps the brain activate the higher frontal brain areas to take the 'bite' out of the emotion and bring it to the surface so it is no longer 'pushed down' or repressed
  • 2. Get Your Body Moving-if you can, go for a brisk walk, hit the gym do 10 jumping jax or run othe spot--whatever comes easiest in the moment to activate your brain and body's natural endorphins and happy hormones
  • 3. Breath in Love, Breath out Anger/Fear: After you've got your body moving to get the good endorphins ie happy hormones flowing, sit or lie in a comfortable position and place a hand over yoru heart. On your inhale, imagine you are inhaling Love and whe you breath out, imagine you are exhaling fear, anger, any other negative emotion that you are holding on to. I like to make this practice even more visual by adding colours: Inhaling Love (white coloured light) and exhaling Anger/Fear (grey/black coloured light)
