Talking about how you feel is one of the quickest ways to experience relief from the pressures of life. Expressing how we feel also helps with decision-making and makes problem solving easier.
On the other hand, when we suppress how we feel, our brain often reacts by going into a fight-or-flight state. This physical reaction results in an increased heart rate, slower digestion and increased feelings of anxiety or depression.
It is very common for people to struggle to control their emotions. However, psychologists at UCLA say that speaking with someone about your troubles relieves you. That’s because when we don’t address how we feel, the emotions don’t disappear. They simply bottle up!
