New Study Shows Jogging Does Not Reduce Stress

Breaking Down the Myth: Reducing Arousal is Key to Managing Anger

A recent study aimed to challenge the notion that expressing anger is an effective way to cope with it. Instead, the researchers wanted to show that reducing arousal is a more important factor in releasing tension. The study analyzed 154 studies involving over 10,000 participants from diverse backgrounds.

The results were surprising, as activities that increased physiological arousal and body heat did not have a significant impact on stress levels or feelings of anger. In fact, these activities often made these emotions worse. On the other hand, activities like deep breathing, relaxation, meditation, yoga, muscle relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing and taking a break were found to be effective in reducing anger.

Professor Brad Bushman from Ohio State University led the research team and emphasized that there is no scientific evidence to support the belief that intense physical activity helps with stress relief. He explained that while certain physical activities may be beneficial for heart health, they are not the best way to manage anger. The study suggests that finding healthier and more constructive ways to manage anger is essential for overall well-being.
