There’s people who think that it isn’t good to express your anger, it should be control.

There’s an article discussing about “Letting Out Aggression Is Called Bad Advice”. It mention that “In the studies, which appear in the March issue of The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, angry subjects who hit a punching bag were later more aggressive in blasting their rivals in a competitive task with loud, unpleasant noises than subjects who did not hit a punching bag.”. Another article discussing about It’s Better to Express Anger to Others than to Hold It in”.

I believe that people do things which benefit the environment or other people, they will feel good in return. “Do Good, Feel Good”, this article mention that:

  • “Few of us are immune to the frustrations and challenges of daily life—family problems, conflicts at work, illness, stress over money. When we get depressed or anxious, experts may recommend medication and/or therapy. But a newly emerging school of thought suggests that a simple, age-old principle may be part of both the prevention and the cure: Help others to help yourself.”
  • “New research suggests there may be a biochemical explanation for the positive emotions associated with doing good.In a recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, participants’ brains were monitored by MRI scans while they made decisions about donating part of their research payment to charitable organizations. When participants chose to donate money, the brain’s mesolimbic system was activated, the same part of the brain that’s activated in response to monetary rewards, sex, and other positive stimuli. Choosing to donate also activated the brain’s subgenual area, the part of the brain that produces feel-good chemicals, like oxytocin, that promote social bonding.”
  • “When you’re experiencing compassion, benevolence, and kindness, they push aside the negative emotions,”

Here’s another article  “Kindness Makes You Happy… and Happiness Makes You Kind”.

These prove that doing something for someone else make people feel good. These results may seem surprising, especially since our culture tends to associate happiness with getting something. I believe that releasing anger in a good way like helping people who collect the cans to compress it for recycle is a win win solution by not harming anyone and limiting the anger release on small objects that benefit the environment.
