Stop Getting “Hangry” Now

Filed under: Depression,hangry feeling,mood,unhealthy eating — Tags: , , — robertprice @ 9:00 am

Hungry business woman
If you find yourself growling just as much as your stomach when you miss a meal, you’re not alone. “Hangry”- a mix between being hungry and angry- is a feeling that plenty of people are familiar with. It’s a well-known fact that hungry people generally tend to be grumpy people, but why do being hungry and angry go together so often and what can you do to prevent the effects?

Here are physiological facts behind the “hangry” feeling:

1. Your Brain Panics

Everything you eat ends up being digested and turned into amino acids, free fatty acids and simple sugars such as glucose. You absorb these nutrients into your bloodstream and pass them along to be used for energy by your tissues and organs. But while most of your other organs can operate on a variety of different energy sources, your brain’s primary fuel is glucose. When your brain can’t access its main source of fuel, it sees a skipped meal as a life-or-death emergency and switches into crisis mode.

Tip: We need about 25 grams of glucose in our bloodstreams for our brain’s to work properly. A small banana can supply this needed glucose when you don’t have time for a meal.

2. Your Problem-Solving Skills Disappear

Your brain has a hard time regulating the thought process when glucose is low, so you may find that you slip-up more often or have trouble controlling your reactions when you’re hungry. In fact, not only does hunger leave you more likely to make hasty decisions, it also leads to major mood swings.

Tip: You can avoid the ugly side of hunger by eating regular, protein-packed meals that keep blood sugar levels even for longer.

3. Serotonin Levels Plunge

When you go too long without food, your serotonin levels drop. Serotonin is a feel-good hormone so this sudden plunge may be your brain’s protective way of letting your body know that your hunger is reaching “dangerous” levels. Because serotonin is also in charge of helping you to control anger, low levels of serotonin could be behind your sudden irritability.

Tip: Prevent any cranky outbursts by snacking on serotonin-rich foods like a handful of dates, walnuts or pumpkin seeds.

4. You Enter “Fight-or-Flight” Mode

One minute you’re busily typing away, the next minute, your hands are shaking or your heart is racing. But while it’s easy to think something is seriously wrong, chances are it’s just your body’s overreaction to an empty stomach. It’s your brain’s job to send your body life-saving signals in risky situations so when it senses what looks like starvation, it starts pumping out adrenaline. Adrenaline is a “fight-or-flight” stress hormone that’s behind those shaky hands, racing heart and that growing grumpiness you’re experiencing.

Tip: Keep calm and step away from the coffee machine! Caffeine-loaded drinks like coffee or tea are likely to spike your adrenaline levels and make your stress response to hunger even worse. If you’ve only got time for a drink, choose a calming cup of chamomile instead.

5. A Natural Chemical Affects Your Brain

When you don’t eat for a long time, a natural chemical called neuropeptide Y is released into your brain. This chemical acts on your brain’s Y1 receptor, causing you to feel both hungry and angry at the same time.

Tip: The aggressive reactions that neuropeptide Y causes are temporary but can be severe, so try to avoid tricky conversations that could lead to conflicts until after you’ve had a chance to eat something.

While feelings of panic, shakiness and sudden anger are not the most pleasant symptoms to experience, keep in mind that these are all just natural parts of your body and brain’s survival strategy. No matter how busy you are, simply reaching for a banana or a handful of nuts every 3-4 hours can balance your glucose levels and help to keep those “hangry” feelings away.

Post Partum Depression Hits Men and Women

Filed under: depressed,Depression,solutions to depression — robertprice @ 1:43 pm

Depression shows no prejudice. It affects all social classes and races. Knowing this, it is surprising that the media and medical professionals stereotype this mental illness as female-dominant.

A recent study confirms that as many as one-in-ten new fathers demonstrate signs of post partum depression.  Originally doctors stipulated that the post partum depression condition was linked to hormonal changes during pregnancy; however, this new study indicates that men also experience post partum depression, likely linked to negative environment changes like lack of sleep, different personal routine, and subsequent relationship issues.

The lead researcher of the study stresses the need to treat depressed parents as soon as possible. If depressed parents are left untreated, the child is at a long-term risk for behavioral and psychiatric problems.  The child’s issues can later become a societal problem, as they may “act out” in the future.

While new father depression is just as much an issue as new mother depression, many men are less willing to seek help.  Men are less willing to admit that they are experiencing issues.

The stigma against male post partum depression should be fought.  For more information about male postpartum depression, visit www.postpartummen.com .

Think you might have male post partum depression? Here is a list of symptoms you may want to check for:

Male Post Partum Depression Symptoms:

  • Males tend to become more aggressive; women tend to be sad
  • Lack of interest in your baby or negative feelings towards your baby
  • Worrying about hurting your baby
  • Lack of concern for yourself
  • Loss of pleasure
  • Lack of energy and motivation
  • Feeling of worthlessness and guilt
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Sleeping more or less than usual
  • Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide

Post partum Depression Treatment for Men and Women

Whether male or female, there are some universally accepted self-treatments and medical treatments for postpartum depression.

Self Treatment:

  • Make sleep <http://www.candrugstore.com/blog/2011/10/sleep-friend.html> a priority.  While attaining eight hours of sleep may seem impossible, you need to make sleep a priority.  Enlist the help of family members while you take a nap.
  • Make your relationships priorities.  When depressed, it is of the upmost importance to stay connected with friends and family, and lean on them for supporting.  This means forming a united front with your significant other.
  • Make meals a priority.  When you are depressed, nutrition often falls to the wayside.  Good nutrition means will ensure you have more energy and better concentration to deal with your baby.
  • Ease back into exercise <http://www.candrugstore.com/blog/2010/08/lead-by-example-and-get-your-kids-active.html>.  Studies have shown that exercise is just as effective as antidepressants for treating depression, so it is important to get back on an exercise plan ASAP.

Medical Treatment

If you have sunk into a deep depression, it is important to recognize this fact and seek medical attention as soon as possible.  Many counselors specialize in postpartum depression treatment.  Counseling and antidepressants (if necessary) have been proven to provide effective results towards combating postpartum depression.

How to Help a Loved One Suffering From Depression

Filed under: Depression — Tags: , — robertprice @ 9:37 pm

When someone you love is suffering from depression in can affect you almost as much as it affects them. First you should understand depression. Those suffering depression may also have additional problems such as OCD, or ADD. Addictions are also often associated with depression. Alcohol, binge eating, drugs, and cutting are ways depressives take away their pain. If you know and care about someone who is suffering from depression here are a few things you can do to help them.

  1. Learn about depression – Since you are already reading this, you are off to a good start. Research depression symptoms and treatment, and try to apply them to your loved one. Knowing is just the start.
  2. Walk a mile in their shoes – Learn what depression really is and try to feel how they feel. Realize when they are grumps in the morning, that that is just a symptom of their condition. Try to understand the misconceptions about mental illnesses and see what they really have to deal with.
  3. Keep an eye on yourself – Depressive symptoms are actually contagious, just like happiness. You will need to sometimes step away from the situation for a break just to keep your own mental health in check.
  4. Join a support group – If you are stressing too much over this, and you are beginning to feel angry and frustrated you may find comfort in a support group. The best thing to do is talk about your frustrations rather than letting them build up inside you.
  5. Be there for them – Lend a shoulder to cry on, and listen to them. Be patient with them and tell them that you care. Share what you have learned as you researched depression. Reassure them that none of this is their fault.
  6. Don’t mix up the depression with the real person – When the depressed person becomes very angry it is not because they are angry with you. Rather they are angry with themselves and the way they feel. If your significant other doesn’t feel like having sex, do not take it personally. Having a decreased sex drive is a classic symptom of depression.
  7. Laziness – Depressed people are not lazy, they are ill. Small activities such as house cleaning or cooking may be very difficult for them. Just like with the flu, sometimes people just don’t feel ‘up-to’ doing chores.
  8. Medication and therapy – These are both critical in their recovery. Try to keep them on the right track.
  9. Love them unconditionally and be sure they understand that you are not frustrated with them, you are only frustrated with their illness.

Foods That Will Make You Happy


For some of us Depression is a very serious issue that continually arises. However, for most of us we occasionally just feel sad or angry, or don’t really feel anything. Yet, there are some ways to increase our general happiness. The key to this isn’t medication, and it doesn’t require you to do yoga for 5 hours every day. In fact, it is a rather simple method of obtaining happiness or at least boosting that mood for awhile, watch what you eat.

No, I don’t mean you necessarily have to eat healthy, although I’m sure that would also make you a happier person anyway. Watch what you’re putting into your body because there are some foods that can actually increase you levels of happiness. So if you’re feeling a little down try some of these for a boost.

Sunflower Seeds – The folate and magnesium found in sunflower seeds play an enormous role in regulating your mood. In fact, magnesium deficiency often results in fatigue, nervousness, and anxiety and has often been linked to mood disorders. Magnesium has also been proven to help in the treatment of depression, suicidal tendencies, anxiety, irritability, and insomnia.

Bananas – A banana will provide you with an energy boost due to the fructose. The fiber will help keep your energy balanced. Bananas will also provide you with carbohydrates, and vitamin B6, which both help in making serotonin.

Dark Chocolate – Chocolate can play a huge factor on mood control. There are many different substances found in chocolate that are known to boost one’s mood. For example, fat, sugar, caffeine, phenylethylamine, flavonols, theobromine, and tryptophan, are all found in chocolate. Not to mention just the taste and texture of chocolate can make a person very happy.

Eggs – Eggs help balance your emotions and help boost energy levels. Additionally, eggs can help symptoms of depression and even lessen memory problems.

Fish Oil Health Benefits Revealed

A recent study has discovered the reason why fish oil is so beneficial to our human bodies. Researchers have concluded that the omega-3 fatty acids, which the body absorbs from oily fish, protect what is essentially a ‘cap’ on each cell that determines how long that cell will live. When a regular cell in the human body divides, this ‘cap’ splits, and becomes shorter, causing the cell to die sooner. In this study, cells were shown to have lived longer when exposed to the omega-3 fatty acids, as the ‘shortening’ effects on the ‘caps’ diminished. When given a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids, the tested rats demonstrated that they live around a third longer than normal.

In addition to this new life-lengthening information, the Omega-3 in fish oil has several other health benefits that you should be aware of:

  • Reduced Risk of Cardiovascular Disease – Omega-3 is extremely beneficial to your cardiovascular health, and has been proven to lower cholesterol, reduce risk of heart arrhythmias, effectively treat strokes, and avoid cardiac arrests.
  • Increase Weight Loss – An Australian study demonstrates that the consumption of fish oil improves the efficiency of exercise, and increases weight loss.
  • Improve Immunity – The Omega-3 fatty acids within fish oil have been shown to positively influence the immune system.
  • Inflammation Ease – Fish oil has been used in treatments of several conditions, which induce inflammation, including Crohn’s Disease and other gastrointestinal disorders.
  • Depression – Omega-3 fatty acids have been proven to even reduce symptoms associated with depression, including sadness, anxiety, restlessness, mental fatigue and stress. Those who consume fish oil on a regular basis are proven to have a lower incidence of depression.

Doctors recommend that you eat at least two servings of oily fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines per week, so as to receive all of the benefits listed above. If you find that you are not able to introduce fish into your regular diet, fish oil supplements are an option as well.

Medical Aid Needed In Haiti


After the massive 7.0-magnitude earthquake (the worst in Haiti in two centuries) struck Haiti, the country has been in a panic. Many are dead as a result of the damage caused and many more are missing. Many people are attempting to contact loved ones with little success. People are afraid to sleep in buildings in fear of them collapsing. Instead, some people have chosen to sleep among the dead, a very disturbing sight for anyone to witness.

The damage in Haiti is very severe and much aid is required. Many countries have begun sending medical supplies and personnel to Haiti, but due to poor infrastructure, proper distribution of aid is difficult.

The global effort to help Haiti is certainly helping, but everyone needs to chip in. Send blankets, clothes, cash donations, all will help. If every person in America sent $1, there would be $300 million of aid we could send.

Money can be used to purchase medicines and the cost for temporary shelters and medical centers. Without proper treatment, and a safe place to stay, the already high death toll, which has been estimated to be near 50,000 and rising, will continue to climb to devastating heights.

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere; they don’t have easy access to all of the medicines we do. If one of them gets the flu they might not be able to go out and get something like Tamiflu. If you start developing severe depression, you can’t go out and get anti-depressant medication. We are truly lucky that we live where we do. Just imagine if it had been us.

“Don’t Worry Be Happy” – 4 Ways to Help You Stay Happy This Winter

Winter tends to bring darkness, cold weather, and cause many people to become emotional wrecks. Some people suffer from frequent depression, others from seasonal depression, and everyone else just seems to get in a bad mood when there’s less light out. However, there are some things everyone can do to make them feel happier.

1. Listen to Some Music – Music has a very wide range of abilities, from getting us pumped up for the big game, or calming us down so we can relax after a hard day of work. When we listen to music, endorphins are released causing that sort of happy feeling we get from sex or food.


2. Laugh
– When you’re in a rather foul mood laughing can sometimes be hard. However, laughing is one of the best things to cheer you up. Try inviting a group of your friends over to watch a funny movie. The chances you’ll laugh increase significantly when you’re with others than when you’re alone. Laughing not only triggers endorphins, making you happier, but reduces specific stress hormones, and strengthens your immune system.

3. List the Things You’re Thankful For – It may seem kind of weird, but occasionally when you’re in a bad mood try writing down a few things you’re thankful for. This may help put things into perspective for you, and help you really see how lucky you are. However, don’t try this too often as it will lose its effectiveness over time. Additionally, it might not work for everyone, but it certainly couldn’t hurt to try.

4. Sex –Sex causes endorphins to be released that help reduce pain, but when there is no pain present, the endorphins can cause euphoria. A healthy sex life can significantly improve your overall mood, and actually provide many health benefits, such as a reducing your stress level.

5 Simple and Natural Solutions to Depression

It is predicted that by next year depression will be the second largest illness after heart disease. Depression affects people of all ages. It can be as trivial as being gloomy when the weather is bad or as traumatic as suicide thoughts, attempts, or completions. Here are 5 natural ways to alleviate the minor cases of depression.

1. Get a Pet – Anything you can pet can help you deal with depression. The simple thing of stroking an animal can help compose you. If you are allergic to animals there are breeds of dogs which do not provoke any allergic effects.

2. Exercise – As unappealing as it sounds, exercise can be a great natural solution to depression. With exercise your heart rate is increased and endorphins, which create positive feelings, are released in your brain. Exercise also takes your mind off negative thoughts by preoccupying your mind and body.

3. Surround yourself with happy people – Have you ever heard the saying “You are who you hang out with”? Depression is contagious. If a person suffering from depression spends time with negative people, their condition may worsen; therefore surround yourself with positive people.

4. Set a goal for yourself – To get your life to move forward in a positive direction, set a goal to achieve. Take the time to write down the goal. This will be a good, constant reminder for you, and will allow you to see how far you have progressed from the beginning. Even if you do not reach your ultimate goal, you will be proud of how far you have developed.

5. Eat healthy – Fish and other sea foods are a good for depression as omega 3 and fatty acids have been said to reduce the symptoms of depression substantially. Try to keep a healthy food balance and avoid skipping meals.

If your symptoms of depression persist, there are widely used medications available for everyone.

5 ways to Prevent Seasonal Depression this Winter

Seasonal Affective disorder (SAD) is a condition that occurs in over 60% of Americans. It is commonly referred to as seasonal depression because it tends to occur during certain months of the year – most commonly during the winter hence the term “Winter Blues”. With seasonal depression you may experience some of the following symptoms:fatigue, weight fluctuations, irritability, conflicts with others, lack of motivation, cravings for carbohydrates, and difficulty concentrating.

If you are ready to say goodbye to your symptoms of SAD, try applying some of these tips to your daily lifestyle

1. Sun lamp

A lack of sunlight and brightness outside is the main cause of “gloominess” for many of those with SAD. Try buying a sun lamp in order to bring more light into your life and boost your mood. You may find yourself feeling more energetic!

2. Eat well

In order to improve your energy levels, try to cut back on caffeine and white flour. You will find that you enjoy a more natural energy boost from a better diet when you quit your coffee drinking and snacking habits. In addition, eating healthy means that your body is getting all of the essential vitamins and minerals it requires. Pick up some vitamin supplements if your eating habits aren’t great – Vitamin B6 and B12 are natural antidepressants.

3. Take a breather

Clear fresh oxygen is crucial for stabilizing mood. Try taking a quick 15 minute daily walk in order to boost your mood – bundle up so you don’t freeze in the cold weather!

4. Stress Management

Learn to control your stress levels in a meditative and relaxing way. Wind down at the end of a long day doing something you enjoy such as reading, exercising, watching TV or taking a bath

5. Exercise

Exercise is important for physical health – but it is just as important for mental health. When we exercise our bodies release endorphins which are hormones that affect our mood in a positive way. The more you exercise, the happier you will feel!
