I am a proponent of many different methods of stress relief including meditation, yoga, chanting, rhythm induced trances, boxing and primal screaming.
Primal screaming takes the least amount of thought. There is nothing intellectual, no out of body experience, no hallucinations, no touching the face of whomever you want to touch – it is pure animal.
There are two things I want to tell you about this technique:
1) It is sudden. It is over as soon as you run out of breath. You must let go completely. The scream emanates from the lowest recesses of your bowels. When you are finished you flop down and enjoy complete freedom from whatever pressure caused you distress.
2) Don’t do it in your cubicle during business hours.
I’ve got to go now – the people from HR are here to do the exit interview and escort me out. I’ll log in later…
