Being hungry makes you angry. Prolonged hunger along with a stressful situation, like a computer malfunction, or tedious evaluation work, dials up the anger in a person.
The hungry person is then more likely to react in an irritated manner or delve into negative perspectives.

Awareness and body-connection become your starting point, and one can then learn to recognize, manage, accept, and allow emotions, with eyes wide open.
