ebook-cover-angerForgiveness has been said to be an antidote to anger  in your life because every time you remember the injustice, and you will remember it since forgiving is NOT forgetting, you choose to release the perpetrator from the debt that she/he owes you.  You may read about the Biehl’s amazing journey here:

http://thejourneyofhope.blogspot.ca/2009/03/amy-biehl-and-improbable-tale-of.html

And…The Mayo Clinic Staff reports that researchers are claiming that, in addition to improving your spiritual health, forgiveness may have benefits for your physical health, too.  This is definitely something that warrants our attention!  It is being said that “letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for compassion, kindness and peace, and that forgiveness can lead to:

  •  Healthier relationships
  • Greater spiritual and psychological well-being
  • Less anxiety, stress and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • Lower risk of alcohol and substance abuse”

Well, this helps explain the statement I’ve heard and read again and again that if you experience a high level of gratitude you cannot be depressed.  This makes sense since depression is anger suppressed.  Imagine a line with frustration in the middle.  It can go either way- one end is depression(extremely suppressed anger) and the other is a high anger level – often in an inappropriate, aggressive way.

The University of Maryland School of Medicine  is researching the connection between anger and  “unforgiveness”. Anger is a component of unforgiveness and anger is a health risk.  Then is unforgiveness  a health risk  as well? Included in the research are studies with aids patients.  Knowing more about the nature and course of anger expression in the context of unforgiveness will ultimately help define and clarify this area of research.

Now I’ll share a few important points that can be helpful in letting go of anger- something I’ve learned as an Advanced EFTtapping  (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Certified Practitioner in a training I attended and has been reinforced in my trainings to facilitate Anger Management.

  • As the victim, it’s OK to forgive only a small percent.
  • Perhaps the other’s behavior was impacted by a chemical/emotional imbalance
  • *** The other was doing what he/she knew how to do – perhaps learned – no matter.
  • It’s possible that the action was not meant “personally” – it was simply an “M.O.”
  • It’s impossible to change another person’s way of dealing; only your own.

If you or someone you love gets help with managing anger and/or letting it go as a victim, then stress is automatically addressed and therefore health will improve too!

Not all stress is bad for you. However, the response system that was designed to save your life can also do some serious harm. You can take steps to see that it doesn’t.  Your body doesn’t knows the difference between pre-marital anxiety (good stress) and taking an important test or being in an accident (bad stress).  What happens is adrenalin and cortisol is up and you may be feeling a bit “overwhelmed” or “out of control”,  both of which are “standard” definitions of stress, which varies with individuals.

 In 1967, psychiatrists Thomas Holmes and Richard Rahe examined the medical records of over 5,000 medical patients as a way to determine whether stressful events might cause illnesses. Patients were asked to tally a list of 43 life events based on a relative score. A positive correlation of 0.118 was found between their life events and their illnesses.

Their results were published as the Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS), known more commonly as the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale. Subsequent validation has supported the links between stress and illness.

To measure stress according to the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, for adults,  the number of “Life Change Units” that apply to events in the past year of an individual’s life are added and the final score will give a rough estimate of how stress affects health.  Add up your score, and the scale is given below this chart.

Can you disconnect from technology, from work related stuff for an hour, a half day, weekend, week? We must usually plan to do that. It’s not always easy to make happen.
It’s good for our health, and often gives us the opportunity to reconnect with nature, with family, and to our inner quiet. Fun can go into that equation too!

I’m not talking about the four hour workweek here- just a few hours or longer.
Try it and enjoy- without guilt:)Costa Rica 2009 031

– Amsterdam 2012 –

Happiness is subjective, perception rules.  Yet there are some simple keys to wellness and happiness, which go hand in hand.  The thing about happiness is that the premise often flows and changes, depending on people and circumstances in our lives.  It’s important through all the changes to be aware of your core values and be in alignment with them.

 These simple truths are not always evident and hold the keys  to wellness and happiness:

  • Follow your passions; do things that bring a sense of fulfillment, joy and purpose, that validate your worth.  See your life as your own creation and strive to make it a positive one.
  • Pay close and loving attention to yourself –  tune into your needs on all levels.  Nourish, support and encourage yourself.
  • Release resentment, envy, fear, sadness, anger.  Express your feelings appropriately.
  • Visualize positive images and goals.  Whenever negative or fearful images emerge, re-focus on images that evoke feelings of peace and joy.
  • Create loving, honest relationships that allow for the expression and fulfillment of needs for intimacy and security. 
  • Heal wounds from past relationships and with parents.
  • Make positive contributions to your community through work or service that you enjoy
  • Make a commitment to health and well being.  Develop a belief in the possibility of total health – physically and emotionally.
