For Hollywood nutritionist and reiki master Serena Poon, it’s an issue of self-care. “Between the growing number of mental-health issues and the measurable amount of inflammation to our brain and our bodies caused by emotional stress, we are more aware of the undeniable dangers that repressed emotions can have on our health,” she explains. It took Poon time to embrace the idea of screaming as self-expression, partly because “society views screaming as a sign of instability, pain, fear, or even psychosis!” And in some cases, for some people, it can have negative results. “Some research suggests that venting of aggression can make you feel more angry and aggressive, rather than less so,” Egan explains, adding that it’s important to take note of how you feel after expressing pent-up energy by screaming into the void, singing at the top of your lungs, or crying hard to feel relief. “Do you feel better afterwards? Is there a sense of relief? Do you feel enlivened? Or do you feel more stressed, angry, sad, or alone? If you feel worse, there are many other options for releasing this kind of tension—see what feels good for you.”
