Why you get 'hangry' and how GrabFood can help you get through.
MANILA, Philippines Have you found yourself getting into a really bad mood because of hunger? There's actually a scientific basis for this. A study published in the journal "Emotion" by researchers at the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) shows that hunger can impact our moods and even behaviors like aggression and impulsivity, as explained by its lead researcher Jennifer MacCormack.
The study's co-author Kristen Lindquist, an assistant professor in Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC, says, "People in our studies were more likely to feel intense negativity in general when they were hungry and something bad happenedsuggesting that feeling hungry can turn up the dial on lots of negative emotions such as anger, stress or disgust." Here are some instances when that "hangry" feeling can get you triggered.
1. Getting stuck in traffic It's been hours since your last meal and now you are sitting helplessly in another episode of carmageddon along the city's main thoroughfares.
At the same time, you know that there's nothing to eat at home because you haven't had time to do your groceries. In a fit of anger, you give the guy who cut you off a long, loud blast from your car horn.
2. Long meeting It's been two hours since your boss called everyone in the conference room to talk about your company's latest campaign.
You want be more enthusiastic about it, but your last trip to the pantry was three hours ago. You eyeroll at your seatmate as your junior officer puts on his pabibo moves on the boss.
3. Overtime, again This is the third time this week you've had to pull in overtime to make the payroll for this month.
You sulk in the darkened office, missing dinner, and sure that you'll be there for a couple more hours, with your group merienda a distant memory. 4.
Group work on a deadline You have to present a skit in school tomorrow, it is 9 p.m.
