Anger vs Hate

While it’s perfectly healthy and natural to be angry, NYC-based holistic psychiatrist Meredith Bergman says it’s time to slow down and reflect when that anger starts morphing into hatred. This isn’t just for your mental health, but your physical wellbeing too: “Doctors say a burst of cortisol (the stress hormone) from negative emotions can trigger inflammation in the body, which is linked to health problems like cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disorders.” So in order to keep angry and aware, but not slip into a negative and unhealthy state, head to Well and Good for some tips.
