Are You Angry And Hungry, But Dieting? Tips From The John Tesh Radio Show
Did you miss the latest health tip or "life hack" from the John Tesh Radio Show? We've got you covered.
Have you heard the term "hangry" by now? That’s hunger plus anger – and we’re more likely to feel angry when we’re hungry, much like a cranky baby.
It happens because not eating for a while can cause levels of the happy hormone seratonin to drop, which makes it more difficult to regulate our emotions.
So, if you are hangry, the solution is simple: Take deep breaths.
Doing that reverses your body’s response to anger and slows your heart rate, according to psychologist Dr. Mitch Abrams author of Anger Management in Sport.
He suggests breathing in to a count of 10, breathing out for a count of 10 – and doing that 10 times. Then roll your shoulders – and if your fists are clenched, shake them out. Once you release your muscles, everything relaxes afterward.
