Stress Less: Try Anger Rooms!

Let’s be honest. We’ve all done something violent, one time or another. Some people more so than others. But, even the most mild-tempered person in the world has his limits. If we reach that limit, the person may lash out.

For obvious reasons, society looks down on violence, so we try to avoid it. We curve that desperate need to physically release our frustration. We stomp it down, and hope that it’ll go away. However, bottling up our stress and anger can be unhealthy, if we don’t have a good outlet for it.

Some of us go to the gym or indulge in a hobby, but that doesn’t stop that aggressive pull we feel. Well, good thing they’ve invented anger rooms!

What Are Anger Rooms?

Anger rooms, or rage rooms as they are sometimes called, are controlled environments facilitated by specialists where people can smash, break, hit, and demolish junk (like old plates, broken laptops, and even TV sets if you get lucky) as a way to vent out all their pent up stress and tension.

It sounds fun because it is! All our lives we’ve been told not to break the dishes and to take care of our belongings. That heady feeling of doing something illicit mixed with a little bit of guilt just satisfies the wicked craving we have always tried to ignore.

But don’t be afraid to try it. Even if you’re going all out with your bashing and wrecking, you’re safe from getting hurt. Everyone who goes to anger rooms will be equipped with safety goggles, helmets, and special safety garments. Plus, anger rooms offer windowless rooms so you have all the privacy you need (and you can wreck in peace!).

Everywhere in the world, there’s always something to stress about. Today, we’ve got all these issues happening in a large scale and couple it with the personal problems we each face, no wonder a lot of people keep breaking down.

Las Vegas is the perfect place to just party and unwind with all the entertainment options this city can offer. But, if you aren’t the type of person who likes spending all your time inside a casino, dancing the night away in a bar, or you just want to do something new; well, there are anger rooms in Las Vegas.

5 Easy Ways to Manage Stress

Stress—we just can’t seem to get past it. Nowadays, everyone’s busy and our schedules require us to keep moving. There are so many aspects of our lives we need to balance such as careers and personal relationships to name a few.

With so many responsibilities weighing over us, the tension keeps building up; and this can affect our mood and how we function in our day to day. So it’s very important to take some time off our hectic timetables to unwind. A few minutes every day is all you need, and there are so many ways to relieve stress. Here are some activities you can do as your very own stress reliever.

1. Exercise Regularly

We’ve heard this said a thousand times, and for good reason! Regular exercise still remains to be one of the best and most effective ways to relieve stress. Studies have shown that exercise improves our mood significantly because it helps us produce different hormones like endorphins and serotonin which helps combat negative feelings and keeps us happy and satisfied.

Plus, you get the added benefit of staying fit and healthy. You only need to do this for 30 minutes for 3 to 5 days, so it’s a commitment you can easily keep. If you can add about 1 hour and 15 minutes of hard workouts like swimming laps and jogging, that can do wonders to your mood and it’s great cardio!

2. Eat a Balanced Diet

This almost always comes hand in hand with regular exercise. However, eating healthy and well is a great stress reliever, too. There are lots of food choices that can keep us comfy and help improve our mood. We don’t mean the usual ‘comfort food’ consisting of sweets, mac n’ cheese, and soft drinks. These may make you feel good at first, but they actually lower your stress tolerance.

A diet consisting of fruits and vegetables are the way to go! Try eating high-fiber meals like baked potatoes and sautéed vegetables with a siding of rice. These can increase the serotonin in our body. Fruits are also great choices since they’re rich in antioxidants which help combat sickness, and they taste deliciously sweet.

3. Give Your Muscles Time To Relax

When we’re overly stressed, one symptom we feel is our muscles bunching up in tension; and this can lead to our whole body feeling so sore. Good news! There are muscle-relaxing activities we can do as ways to relieve stress, and they are so easy to do. A few minutes of simple stretching, a hot bath/shower, and a great massage can do wonders to ease up the stress we feel.

4. Take a Break

An awesome stress reliever is simply taking a break. You don’t need to do anything specific, just as long as you find it relaxing. You can use this time to do some deep breathing exercises, chat with friends, pray and meditate, or even indulge in a hobby. Taking a break once in a while will help improve your mood significantly. At the same time, you can simply enjoy the peace.

5. Try an Anger Room

But if you’ve already tried these ways to relieve stress and want to experience something more unique and exciting, head on over to an anger room! This kind of stress reliever is quickly popping out everywhere because people find it interesting and enjoyable.

All you need to do in an anger room is get on whacking, smashing, and breaking stuff to release all your pent-up frustrations! It’s good fun and you’ll feel surprisingly satisfied after you’ve experienced an anger room.

What is a Rage Room and Is Destruction Therapy for You?

Rage rooms may be the solution for those of you who are feeling stressed or frustrated.

The concept began in Spain in 2003 and moved its way to the United States with several rage rooms offering destruction therapy opening in Texas, New York, California and now Las Vegas, Nevada.

It’s a new technique to manage stress and anger that has gained traction over the years. With more rage rooms opening in the United States, we’d like to share everything there is to know about destruction therapy and rage rooms to determine if it’s the right solution for you. 

How Does Destruction Therapy Work?

The concept is also known as “DestructoTherapy.”  How it works is you go into a safe, supervised room with a bunch of items you can smash. You put on protective gear from head to toe with a safety helmet, glasses, gloves, coveralls, etc. Then they hand you a weapon of choices such as a sledgehammer, bat, golf club, pipe, or any object that can destroy things. Once you’re geared up, you can let all your frustrations out as you break each inanimate objects. The entire experience aims to help you get in touch with your anger and release it appropriately. Typically, most anger rooms offer a time limit in increments of 10 minutes.

You can enjoy your destruction therapy to any music you want such as the Beastie Boys, Classical Music, Rock, House, Techno, etc. Often, people choose the Office Space Song (The Still by Geto Boys) and decide to smash a printer.

With each glorious whack, you’ll slowly feel the stress releasing from your body, and a heavyweight lifted off your shoulders.

“A lot of people come in after a stressful day at work. By the time they leave, they’re smiling from ear-to-ear,” said Anna Guiao, owner of Sin City Smash, an anger room in Las Vegas, NV.

Psychology of Releasing Anger Appropriately

“You know what I do when I’m mad? I hit a pillow. Just hit the pillow. See how you feel.”
~ Billy Crystal, as a psychiatrist, tells client Robert Deniro, in the movie Analyze This.

According to Better Health, the long-term physical effects of uncontrolled or pent-up anger include increased anxiety, high blood pressure, and headaches. Moreover, when you don't let your anger out, it may turn into a toxic and destructive human emotion that not only harms you but others as well.

If expressed appropriately, anger becomes a positive and useful emotion. Having rage is a natural feeling that offers us invaluable information about ourselves, which should always be explored and dealt with reasonably. It’s recommended to adopt long-term strategies to manage anger, which often include regular exercise, learning techniques to release your anger appropriately and counseling.  

Destruction Therapy is a technique that helps you release your anger at an appropriate time and place. Rage Rooms provide a safe, fun environment for anyone who's experiencing very normal feelings of sadness, anxiety, depression, stress and anger to release these feelings acceptably.

What Can You Smash in a Rage Room?

You can destroy electronic waste such as computer monitors, CPU towers, laptops, keyboards, printers, fax machines, TVs and any other electronics you can think of. Kitchen items like plates, bowls, bottles, cups, etc. Some rage rooms offer car smashing as well! Anything you can think of will most likely be breakable in an anger room.

There's usually a Bring Your Own Box (BYOB) option where you can bring stuff from your home to break into the rage room. It's a unique approach to waste management. Rage Rooms like Sin City Smash encourages you to bring your e-waste or anything smashable you'd like to get rid of and have fun breaking it at a local anger room recreational facility. You never have to clean-up. A team sorts through the wreckage to dispose of each item properly. No hazardous materials, liquids, flammable, ammunition, weapons or firearms, food items, and anything deemed to be unsafe will be accepted though.

Rage rooms like Sin City Smash become part of the waste management process. Many electronics are save from being left at the landfills. Each item is now repurposed for anger release activities and recycle the broken things to promote an eco-friendly initiative.

No Judgement & No Consequences

Have you ever become so angry that you broke something and felt terrible afterward? 

It’s ok. We’ve all been there!

In society, destructive behavior has been deemed inappropriate. But, sometimes you just want to smash the crap out of your old TV, printer or destroy the ugly plates your mother-in-law gave you.

We have good news for you. Anger rooms promote a no judgment and no consequences environment where you can come in, break stuff and then leave. No questions asked. No consequences or clean up necessary. Everything is taken care of for you. A rage room is a place where you can go and take our your frustration on objects without negative repercussions. You can rage out as hard as you'd like because each room is safe, and the gear you have on will protect you.

It's very thrilling, and many people describe feeling an adrenaline rush.

But, Can't I Just Destroy Things at Home?

Broken things after an anger room session

Yes, you can. However, who'll handle the clean up afterward? Let the professionals take care of the wreckage you make. They'll also dispose of the junk in an environmentally friendly way, which can sometimes be time-consuming.

All you need to worry about when you're in a rage room is to have fun and smash away!

People Who Rage Together, Stay Together

Destruction Therapy can be a solitary activity or something you do with others. A lot of rage rooms offer date night or party packages so you can break stuff with your friend, spouse, or even a co-worker! There is a sense of comradery that comes with breaking things together.

Many bosses' acknowledge the amount of stress they put on their employees and have turned to rage room activities as a healthy team-building exercise. You and your team can finally take that printer that never works into a rage room and gives it a piece of your mind!

Corporate event planners have also turned to destruction therapy as a unique work event. For example, a car company can request to have their competitor's vehicles brought in to be destroyed. It's a great way to "smash the competition" while releasing any stress you may have associated with your work.

Anyone who's been dumped recently can take their friends to the rage room to let out any anger, sadness or frustration together. People can print out pictures of their exes, stick them on objects and smash away! You can take advantage of the BYOB rate, which is normally lower, and bring in your exes stuff to wreck as well.

You can even hold a divorce party in a rage room. It’s an excellent way to say goodbye to your old, married self and welcome the new, happy and single you!

Who Shouldn't Participate in Destruction Therapy?

Every anger management system works differently for everyone. The following people shouldn’t participate in destruction therapy:

  • Anyone who is pregnant or nursing;
  • If you are under the influence of drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs that impairs your mobility and judgment;
  • Individuals who are not in good health and/or in proper physical condition;
