Anger: Why It's Healthy

In our society anger has a bad reputation, right?


In this episode, CrisMarie and Susan discuss how healthy it is to feel and understand anger in our lives. From recognizing one’s anger to how it can flow through movement, they both share experiences with this feeling. Being aware of one’s own boundaries is also one big topic in this episode. Knowing when to ask for what you want and being accountable for when your boundary is being crossed is part of a healthy lifestyle.


Embracing anger shouldn’t be stigmatized, it is just like any other feeling, and learning how to handle it is important for a balanced life.
