Feeling frustrated? A popular way to blow off some steam is to book a wreck room (otherwise known as a rage room, smash room, or anger room), and let it all out!
Wreck rooms are safe, enclosed rooms with a variety of breakable household items (such as TVs, printers, ceramics, etc.) and a bunch of tools ready for you to use. Check out our article here about items to smash in a rage room. Within a wreck room, you will be dressed safely in protective clothes and gear that shields your body, hands, face, and eyes. More information here on what is a rage room.
5 Benefits to Wreck Rooms
These rooms are meant to be a fun evening or weekend activity, however, they also provide a lot of benefits. Some just enjoy the bonding experience with their friends or family, and others find it beneficial to their mental health.
Let’s explore these and see if a wreck room is the right choice for you:
1. Non-Judgmental Space to Release Pent Up Frustration
Ever felt like you just need to scream? Well, a wreck room at The Secret Chambers offers a safe space for you to explore your emotions without any judgment.
In general, anger and rage aren’t considered socially appropriate. However, rage therapy in one of our wreck rooms offers a space where you can rage as much as you want freely (and responsibly!)
What’s awesome is that shouting, yelling, breaking stuff, wielding your desired “weapon,” and becoming a total wild animal in a Secret Chambers wreck room is completely OK 🙂
No judgement here.
2. Provides a Feeling of Empowerment
Had a rough day at work? Has the daily grind been frustrating lately and you just need a little escape?
We get it.
When life gets you down, a wreck room may be just the thing you need. One of the reasons why we think wreck rooms are so satisfying is that they can offer a way to channel your anger and help you feel like you’re reclaiming your emotions.
A wreck room may make you feel more empowered to tackle your situation better.
3. Motivation for Positive Change
Anger, when used properly, can motivate us to take action. Usually, anger and rage happen when our needs are blocked or when there are obstacles blocking our path. When this happens in life, it can be frustrating.
But, remember that anger can be used in a positive way.
That’s why you should try a rage room, since it can be a safe place to explore your emotions, while also having fun.
Once you’ve had a chance to let yourself rage for a bit, it allows you to cool off and think about things after you’ve had a chance to reflect.
4. Helps to Reduce Stress and Anger Through Physical Activity
It’s a known fact that physical activity and exercise help to reduce stress. Exercise produces endorphins that ease our brain, improve our sleep, and overall help us feel better.
Rage rooms, as long as they are used safely and appropriately, can be a great way to engage in a physical activity that helps to maintain healthy mental fitness and reduce overall stress. More here on why recreational smashing could be good for your mental health.
5. A Fun Activity for Friends and Family!
Lastly, if you’re looking for a good bonding exercise you’ve never tried before, then a rage room can be a great, new experience.
In fact, we highly recommend a wreck room for family members, friends, co-workers, etc. Come try out a stress-relieving experience that encourages positive interactions and just an overall good time smashing stuff!
