How many times you felt like screaming inside? From the crack of dawn till the stroke of midnight, we ride an unending rollercoaster of responsibilities, expectations and experiences, each with its unique ability to strain our nerves. As our hearts pound faster and our palms grow clammy, we yearn for an outlet, a means to scream our frustrations into oblivion. Yet, where can we go and scream?
During the lockdown Professor Pragya Agarwal, a renowned Behaviour and Data Scientist, engage in shared screaming sessions with her twin daughters. Understanding the need for stress release in these unprecedented times, she introduced this unique practice to her children. Aiming to shed light on her unconventional coping mechanism, Professor Agarwal appeared as a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, where she engaged in an insightful conversation with Emma Barnett about her experiences and motivations behind integrating this practice into her family’s routine.
Renowned neuroscientist Dr. Sharot from University College London, noted in one of her studies that screaming can activate the brain’s ‘fear circuitry’, which in turn can have a significant cathartic, emotional release. The silenced scream allowed by the Scream Jar provides the same endorphin rush, while sparing others the auditory onslaught.
Professor Agarwal and Dr Sharot are not alone in their approach. Halfway across the globe, in Japan, an unexpected solution was launched: the Scream Jar Voice Silencer and soon enough, basic versions but serving the same principle, were made available online at a fraction of the price.
The Scream Jar Voice Silencer provides a technologically-innovative answer to stress relief. But how does this device manage to quell the raging storm within us?
Screaming can be cathartic in the moment, helping to express and release emotions. This can especially be the case if those emotions have been repressed. Primal therapy, which is the first recorded context of using screaming as therapy, was used to help people who have experienced childhood trauma.
The Scream Jar utilizes a fusion of advanced sound-absorbing materials and precision-engineered design to dampen the loudest screams to a whisper, offering the user a chance to let off steam without disrupting the peace around them.
By tapping into the dynamics of sound waves, creators at Banraishop have cleverly managed to alleviate stress without needing to alter our natural instinct to vent. The Scream Jar is a prime example of innovation applied to augment human mental health, a testament to the progressive strides technology has made in combating stress.
When we scream, our brain releases a rush of endorphins, our body’s natural mood elevator. This biochemical mechanism, as simple as it might sound, has a profound impact on our well-being.
The statistics on stress are both startling and sobering. According to the American Institute of Stress, about 77% of people regularly experience physical symptoms due to stress. Over 73% manifest psychological symptoms, and 33% feel they are living with extreme stress. These figures paint a grim picture of a society on the edge, under constant duress, and seeking solace.
Our quest for peace and tranquillity often has us reaching for a multitude of solutions, but perhaps the answer has been within us all along – in our inherent need to express, to vent, and to scream. So, the next time stress threatens to overwhelm you, remember that the path to relief might lie in the simple act of picking up a Scream Jar and letting your frustrations echo in the silence.
In the high-octane world we inhabit, Banraishop’s Scream Jar Voice Silencer serves as a brilliant example of the nexus between technology and mental health. By innovating to turn an age-old instinct into a tool for stress management, the creators of this product have indeed moved a step forward towards achieving the elusive equilibrium between our fast-paced lifestyles and the inherent human need for emotional release.
Our world is gradually awakening to the power of innovative stress-release products, proving that when it comes to our mental well-being, silence indeed can be golden. So let’s scream, silently into the Scream Jar, and get stress-free.
