Given the state of the world in the last couple of months, it’s likely that there are many pent-up emotions that you would like to let go of. Well, why not try screaming them out into Iceland’s vast wilderness?

With the intent of helping people release some stress amid the pandemic, the island nation is inviting exasperated people from all over the world to record their loudest screams to be broadcast into the wide-open Icelandic wilderness.

“You’ve been through a lot this year and it looks like you need the perfect place to let your frustrations out. Somewhere big, vast and untouched. It looks like you need Iceland,” the country’s tourism board said on its website.

Those who want to give it a try can record their screams on the website and hear the audio distress of others as well. The recordings are then played through loudspeakers in front of peaceful scenery like glaciers, caves, and waterfalls.

“Being able to make a loud noise into a wide, open, undisturbed space” lets a part of our brain called the amygdala release stress, “something we have all experienced in the past few months,” therapist Zoe Aston said.

The website even includes tips on how to scream your best. For example: “Imagine a baby when it cries and screams. The noise comes from the baby’s gut. This is where your scream should come from. If it helps, put your hands on your belly and take a few deep breaths before you begin.”

Follow this link to hear some incredibly amusing recordings of other people yelling or record your own stress-relieving scream.
