    Need to Relieve Stress? Try the Anger Room

    Need to release some stress in an unconventional way? The Anger Room in Deep Ellum may be your spot. (Published Friday, March 24, 2017)

    Do you ever feel like you just need a break?

    The political climate, the crazy rants on Facebook, sometimes you just need a place to escape and blow off some steam.

    Elementary school librarian, Kena Sosa, releases stress at the Anger Room.

    "You get boggled down sometimes and you just say, 'I need an outlet for this energy or this frustration,'" she said.

    The Anger Room is a nondescript building in Deep Ellum.

    Once inside, you're armed with a bat, given a protective jump suit, they crank up the music and then you just go crazy.

    Kena says the more you break, the better it feels.

    "It gives you, in a weird way, a new sense of confidence in yourself," she added. "A strength that you're not sure you have."

    In a world that expects you to hold it all together, the Anger Room gives you the freedom to just let loose.
