We come from a culture of “stiff upper lip”. Most of us grew up with the understanding that to express emotion, especially anger was not welcome. In Chinese medicine and in modern western understanding of health, we know that the mind and emotions have a direct effect on the body and on our health. Kinesiologist’s warmly refer to emotion as e – motion: energy in motion and understand it as the foundation for good health.
Today we have a plethora of therapeutic support to help us release emotion and basically get our energy moving well. Anger In Hispanic cultures it’s natural to shout, to raise the voice in a debate and to be effusive when emotive. This is a natural part of that culture. In British culture we have learned to “be nice”, so we habitually apologise (for feeling angry) and “dum it down” with cake, alcohol or T.V. If we don’t express our anger then it will build up and lead to “explosive” anger expressed in other circumstances or unexpressed it becomes disease of one kind or another.
