Recovering From Revenge Addiction
When stress and anger enter our lives, they can have a severe effect on our health. James Kimmel Jr. and Dr. Mike address the negative physical effects that anger, and revenge have on the brain. Research says they are just as addictive as opioids, making them extremely difficult to release. Now more than ever we need tools and insights to bring back peace and balance. We talk about what approach we can take to rid our brain of grievances, anger and vengeance and restore a deep state of emotional well-being.Source: Apple Podcast
