If you're hiding your anger or sadness, one day it will just all spill over and you will just die right there.
JK! But repressing those emotions WILL cut years off your life!! Such fab news for those who love to yell and rant! LOLz!
In this new study, they looked at 6,000+ people. It's no small study. They found that those who internalised their anxiety suffered from raised pulse, and that those who are 'hot tempered' live longer! Over time this results in high blood pressure and an increased chance of developing a wide range of illnesses, from coronary heart disease to cancer and kidney damage. So yeah, get all that stuff off your chest asap!
