Deal With Your Emotions

7 "Negative" Behaviors That Are Actually Healthy

1. Getting mad.

It's true, anger isn't exactly the most attractive feature on a person for most, but not for me. If you can get mad, if you can feel the emotion, I say that's a good thing.

Take the energy produced by your anger and use it for a positive result. Learn to express your anger in a positive way. It's not as negative a behavior as you think.

2. Being lost.

Sometimes we lose our sense of direction, but I think that's okay. It's important to feel lost sometimes. It gives you the opportunity to find yourself and figure out what direction you should go.

3. Crying your eyes out.

Just like anger, crying is a natural human response to certain upsetting or inspiring situations.

We treat it like it's something we shouldn't do, but we cry for an evolutionary reason. Same as laughing, yawning, and every other non-language communication.

If you have something to cry about, go ahead.

4. Being solitary.

Society teaches us to constantly be with people. It's important to be a pack animal! But sometimes we just need that solitary time.

Turning of external stimuli can be important for reorienting ourselves. If you need along time, take it. If you know someone who needs alone time, let them have it.

5. Not listening.

Have you ever noticed how just about everyone you meet acts like an advice factory? It's like no matter what situation you face, they have the perfect piece of advice for you.

They know exactly what they'd do. Well you know what? You're not them. Sometimes it's okay to not listen to others. Other times it's important. But hey, it's up to you.

6. Breaking all the rules.

It's important to know the rules to understand the best ways possible to break them. There are some rules you should follow. Not speeding is a good idea.

Not drinking and driving is a good idea. Not doing rails of coke and then going running is a good idea. But do you remember when we had "free speech zones" under President Bush? Yeah, that was a rule worth breaking.

7. Not trying to conform.

Come on, don't be a conformist. You just do you.

The World's Oldest Person Just Turned 119, But What's Fascinating Is How She Spends Her Days

The oldest person in the world just recently celebrated her 119th birthday in a nursing home in southwestern Japan. Now if you're picturing an immobile old lady who does nothing bt spend her days in bed, think again. This woman may be at the end of her days, but she is still full of life.

The way that she spends her every day should be an inspiration to all of us that we're never too old to put in the effort everyday to live it to the fullest. After all, what's the point in living if we don't actually feel alive? Here's how she does it.

She Has Watched The Whole World Change

When you've lived almost a century and a quarter long, you're bound to probably feel like you're in your own science fiction movie by the end. The world has drastically changed over the years. When Kane Tanaka was born, in 1903 in Japan, life was much simpler. This was the same year that the Wright brothers powered their first flight. Kane grew up around her nine siblings before she married a rice shop owner when she turned 19 years old.

Since then she has lived through wonders including two world wars, two pandemics, the rise of technologies, and more life changes than we could possibly imagine.

Today, Her Routine Is Quite Unique

​Just because she has lived a long and meaningful life, doesn't mean that she's done living each day to the fullest. What's really fascinating about Kane's long life is the way that she chooses to live every day.

It turns out that even at her nursing home, Kane wakes up every morning bright and early at 6 a.m. and spends part of her day studying mathematics. She keeps her mind sharp and alert by spending the day solving number puzzles and playing board games. She has gotten so good at this that in 2019, she became an expert in the game of Othello, a strategy board game, even beating the nursing home's younger staff.

She Has Broken New Records

Kane is now part of the Guinness World Records and has been since turned 117 and became Japan's oldest living person. On her birthday, Guinness even tweeted her a happy birthday and shared a video of her from 2019, when she was officially given the title.

Unfortunately, while Kane has adapted to much of the modern world, she hasn't made it as far as setting her own Twitter account to reply. Nonetheless, everyone who saw the tweet was inspired by her will to live as well as the way she chooses to live.

She's Got The Right Attitude

Tanaka sounds like a delightful woman who emits all kinds of positive vibes. Her personality exceeds her intelligence and love for math because just like the average person, Tanaka also shares a strong love for fizzy drinks and chocolate. In fact, when she was gifted a box of chocolates during her Guinness ceremony, someone asked her how many chocolates she wanted to eat, she replied, "100." And why shouldn't she? When you've lived that long there is no reason not to indulge and maximize life's little pleasures.

Tanaka carried the same attitude when she was crowned Japan's oldest person at 117 and celebrated with a coke. Tanaka's positivity is radiant and comes across in all her gestures. When she was sent flowers on Respect for the Aged Day, she expressed her gratitude by making a peace sign.

Maybe Chocolate Is The Key

Tanaka has another three years to go until she breaks the all-time record for the oldest person that has lived, which right now is held by Jeanne Louise Calment from France, who lived to 122 years. Currently, she holds the record for the world's oldest currently living person since Jeanne has since passed.

What's interesting about these two women is their love for their chocolate. They say that Jeanne ate two pounds of chocolate a week! Could chocolate be the new fountain of youth? The answer is probably in how these two women carried themselves in their youth and the way they're able to see the good in the everyday. However, Japan is known to hold one of the longevity rates in the world which have increased significantly in the last 60 years.
