How Anger Endangers Your Health

www.apa.org
It's normal to get angry. Even Christ got angry a lot of times. But the bible cautions us on the side effects of this emotion. Thus, it says, be angry but don't remain angry all day. Specifically, it says don't let sundown catch you still angry.

Is it okay then to be angry 23 hours a day? Well, try it and see what happens?

I believe the idea really is to cut-short anger instead of prolonging it. Anger triggers harmful chemical reactions in the body. These reactions then translate into toxins and higher acidity levels in the body (like higher uric acid levels) as well as the formation of free radicals. I don't know how, but that's what happens.

But you also need to express anger because suppressing it also builds up stress and pressure that may be harmful to your blood pressure and heart health.

Here's the picture---zero anger is bad, but so is too much of it.

So, you need to stay in-between. And that's where the bible wisdom comes into play---be angry but don't prolong it.

In my search for a healthy fit life and wellness, I discovered one vital truth---there's really no reason to stay angry a long time. Why? It's as simple as this---if you don't approve of something, then don't. You don't need to be very angry about anything. Just disapprove anything odious then forget about it.

I encounter guys and instances that really piss me off and I get angry, sometimes terribly angry. But I always follow the bible tip---let go of it immediately. Don't stay angry for more than 5, 15 or 30 minutes. The longest is an hour if it's really that bad.

After that, switch to happiness or cheery mode. You have the controls in you and you can easily change channel anytime you want.

First, I always think of God---I don't want to disappoint him. Second, I think about my health. No one and nothing is that important to wreck my health. I won't allow it.

Remember these things. This is for your health and wellness.

It's useless to be exercising regularly and eating healthy if everyday your character becomes more rotten because you harbor hate feelings in you.

What I do is laugh and eat with God, laugh with my wife, eat good dessert with her, or watch a real good movie on Youtube.

It always works.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
