  • eople around the world are finding different ways to relieve stress during the coronavirus pandemic. Some have tried running, gardening, doing puzzles, cooking — but what about screaming?


    Promote Iceland, which encourages tourism to the country, is encouraging people to scream to relieve pent up frustration1. And even if you can't travel to Iceland to do it, you can scream into your device and your voice will be broadcast throughout the empty Icelandic countryside.


    A website for the ad campaign shows yellow loudspeakers playing the screams of people from around the globe in front of peaceful scenery like glaciers2, caves and waterfalls. A button at the top of the site invites users to join in with the phrase, "Tap to scream."“宣传冰岛”项目的网站显示,在冰川、山洞和瀑布这样宁静的景色前,黄色的喇叭正在播放全球各地人们的尖叫声。网站最上方的按钮邀请用户“点击这里尖叫”来加入。

    "You've been through a lot this year and it looks like you need the perfect place to let your frustrations3 out," Promote Iceland says. "Somewhere big, vast and untouched. It looks like you need Iceland. Record your scream and we'll release it in Iceland's beautiful, wide-open spaces. And when you're ready, come let it out for real. You'll feel better, we promise.


    According to a news release, the speakers are located at seven locations across Iceland. People who participate receive a video of their scream as it's broadcast from one of the stunning4 locations.


    "Prolonged indoor living, loneliness, endless teleconferencing and disruption of daily life, as well as restrictions5 on travel between countries, have increased people's stress," Promote Iceland said. "The campaign is intended to highlight the advantages of Iceland as a destination."“宣传冰岛”称:“长时间的室内生活、孤独、没完没了的视频会议和被扰乱的日常生活,还有跨国旅行的限制令,都让人们的压力增加了。这一活动旨在凸显冰岛作为旅行目的地的优势。”

    Zoe Aston, a therapist and mental health consultant6, even offered screaming tips to people looking to participate. Some of her advice includes choosing what type of scream to use — volume, words or breath — standing7 with your feet hip-width apart, bending your knees slightly, relaxing your shoulders, screaming from the gut8 and following your instincts.


    The campaign is light-hearted, but Promote Iceland still wants users to take mental health struggles during the pandemic seriously.


    "This is a starting point," Aston said. "If you need mental health support, it is imperative9 that you seek out professional help."阿斯顿说:“这是一个起点。如果你需要心理健康支持,一定要寻求专业帮助。”
