I AM STANDING my bathroom with a towel plugging the gap under the door, while I tentatively yell into a pillow, eventually building up the confidence to belt out a scream at the top of my lungs.
Aside from hoping the neighbours don’t call the police, I’m trying to find out whether screaming has any benefits for relieving lockdown stress. Ever felt so annoyed that you just want to just shout and break stuff? Well, it’s now a type of alternative therapy.
Thanks to the rise of so-called ‘rage rooms’ in the UK – dedicated spaces where people can pay to smash up household items – throwing a tantrum has never been more acceptable.
