Everyone you've ever met has anger, rage, and sadness inside of them, including me and you. It's completely normal and part of being human. We all sometimes feel a strong need to scream and yell to get out our anger when things aren't going our way.
Why is that?
Ever heard the saying "They're bottling everything up." when talking about someone who has trouble with anger? That's actually a very good way to think about how our body stores emotions. Think of each person you know, including yourself, as having a bottle where they store all their anger, sadness, fear, rage and other dark emotions.
Each person is born with a different sized bottle and each person's bottle is filled with different amounts of emotions and filled up at different levels. Some people's bottles are almost empty, some are halfway filled, some are almost filled, and some are overflowing. When your bottle starts to overflow with emotions, the emotions start to come out in different ways: getting irritated easily, being impatient, wanting to scream, crying at random times and getting mad over things you wouldn't normally get mad over.
The best way to get these emotions out is to physically let them out. Everyone has yelled when they've gotten angry and felt so much better afterwards once they got it out.
The problem is anger is the one emotion you're not allowed to show in public or with friends and family. Many of us are taught that you're not supposed to be angry or let others see that you're angry. The truth is that whether we ignore it or not, we still have the anger inside us...and it's going to come out somehow.
Adults and children can also judge you or get scared if you get angry and raise your voice. They may label you as 'crazy' or 'unhinged' or may talk about you behind your back.
No one wants to lose relationships or hurt others because of their anger.
So how do you get your anger out, so you feel better, without affecting others? Many people go into a car and drive around and yell, which is cathartic, but is dangerous while driving and can be heard by others around you. Some people use their sleep pillow to scream and yell in the hopes no one hears it, especially if they live in an apartment building or in a house with other people around. Sleep pillows were designed for sleep comfort though, not noise reduction, so others can often hear you getting angry.
What you need is something that will allow you to get your anger out in a safe way without affecting or alerting others to your anger.
That's where the Yell Pillow comes in.
The Yell Pillow allows you to get your anger and sadness out without others knowing. Now when you feel that anger rising up inside of you and you need to let it out, you can yell and scream into the Yell Pillow anytime and anywhere...and nobody will know. That way you get your anger or sadness out and feel better, but not look like a crazy person to others. 🙂
The Yell Pillow is the first pillow designed for noise reduction. It's designed to reduce the sound of your yelling, screaming and crying more than a standard pillow, but also look like a standard pillow, so you can get your emotions out, feel better, and no one is the wiser.
It can also be used to punch if you feel like you physically need to punch something as well or hide crying noises.
Oh, and it's comfortable to sleep on too. 🙂
