Why do we lash out? Why do we get angry? What is your trigger? I try to name my triggers so I can see them up ahead and prepare myself to handle them. One of my triggers is hunger. I have a fast metabolism and when I run out of snacks or have a long gap between meals I can get very ornery, and bad tempered. Because I know this about myself I refrain from talking and focus on getting home and getting the sustenance I need. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no Zen master but being upset and taking it out on others is not the way to go. Last night I was feeling the fire in my core. What did I do? I danced it out! Nothing gets you out of a bad mood like dancing naked. Trust me, I kind of do this every day.
