How "Hunger" can determine "Reality"

It was once said . . . We see the world, not as it is . . . but as we "are"!

What a profound statement that is . . .

But what does it mean???

Well . . . another reason our "perception" of "reality" can be clouded . . . is whether we're "hungry" or "not" . . .

You see . . . as I stated yesterday . . . our body's "energy" levels impact decision-making. And this is why children who eat breakfast do better in school and have fewer behavioral problems.

When we're naturally hungry before a meal or when we're on a diet restricting our caloric intake . . . "hunger" delays development on the cognitive, social or emotional levels. Which includes everything from reading, attention, memory and problem-solving.

And with this . . . "hunger" has the ability to cloud our judgement and our focus in life's situations.

This is where our "perception" is NOT even close to "reality" . . . comes into play.

So if you're in a stressful situation and need to make an informed decision that's close to the "reality" in life . . . make sure you have food in your stomach . . .

Now, that doesn't mean junk food and nutritionally void foods.

Because in this situation . . . this food can also lead to a feeling of paranoia, low self-esteem and anxiousness.
