New Study Shows Jogging Does Not Reduce Stress

A recent study has challenged the effectiveness of “anger rooms” as a way to cope with stress and anger. Conducted by researchers including Dr. Sofi Kerwick, the study aimed to show that reducing arousal is key in releasing tension.

The study analyzed 154 studies involving over 10,000 participants from diverse backgrounds. The results showed that activities that increased physiological arousal and body heat did not significantly impact stress levels or feelings of anger. In fact, these activities often made these emotions worse.

On the other hand, activities such as deep breathing, relaxation, meditation, yoga, muscle relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing, and taking a break were found to be effective in reducing anger. However, running was identified as an activity that actually increased anger levels.

Prof. 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. Instead, he suggested finding healthier and more constructive ways to manage anger for overall well-being.

Overall, this study highlights the importance of managing emotions in a healthy way rather than relying on destructive methods such as “anger rooms.”
