Scream Day

April 24th is celebrated as Scream Day every year. What’s the purpose of this holiday? It’s a day that’s designed to give people permission to let out one good primal scream. According to scientists, screaming is a good way for people to release tension in the muscles and it can release endorphins in the central nervous system that can lead to a lowering of anxiety, a reduction in pain, and an increase in a person’s pleasure.

In other words, screaming is good for a person’s mental and physical health, as long as it’s done in a responsible and controlled manner. This holiday in no way advocates for people screaming at each other.

Primal scream therapy is something that has been practiced since ancient times. It was an important part of Eastern medicine, and all throughout history it’s been advocated by all kinds of different medical professionals around the world.
