something to honk about
Have you ever noticed how cranky your kids get when they are hungry? If my kids are acting unhappy, the first thing I will try to do is feed them. That fixes the problem about 90% of the time. (That shows you how good my kids have it – they usually don’t have any good reason to be upset.)
I am the same way. If I’m especially grumpy for no good reason, it’s probably because I was busy and skipped a meal. Because I have dealt with it so many times with my kids, I finally noticed that I would do the exact same thing.
Which leads me to my conclusion that angry people are hungry people.
There are millions of people in this country alone that eat a totally crap diet of over-processed pseudo-food laden with artificial flavors, sugar, and corn or soy fillers. Food that is remarkably devoid of real nutrition. Food that leads people to feel full even while their bodies still hunger for real nutriment.
And that, I believe, leads many people to feel crabby, frustrated, and angry. Little bumps in the road of life may cause them to feel overwhelmingly upset. This could truly be due to their body’s lack of energy.
I’ve heard a new word lately, “hangry”. I’m not sure if it was meant to describe what I’m talking about here, but it does describe it pretty accurately. So my unsolicited advice for today is: feed yourself. Eat well, food that is rich in nutrition. Food that will give your body and your mind strength to face the days challenges. Eat and be happy, my friends.
Do you agree? Have you met with any “hangry” people lately? What did you do?
