Episode 33: Finding Happiness – Being With All Your Emotions

Anger is part of the human condition and one that deserves a lot of attention because we don’t like it, we repel away from it and it can be caustic and painful for ourselves and for others if we lash out in anger.

We love to intersect research with the wisdom of medicine that prevailed modern medicine by 1000’s of years. Medical and psychological Research shows that holding onto anger and resentment increases risk for anxiety, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, ulcers, migraines, backaches, heart attack and even cancer!
