Do you ever notice that you are cranky or have a short temper and can't seem to figure out why? Bustle made a list of reasons that may have your answer as to why.

  • You're "hangry" which could be why you're cranky in the afternoon. Sugar and simple carbs will not fill you up, so if your lunch wasn't the most nutritious than you could be left feeling hungry and with a short temper.
  • You're sleep deprived because when you haven't had enough sleep, you just don't have the mental energy to deal with anything, let alone other people.
  • Something is bugging you so even if you're trying to do something else, you may be distracted with whatever it is that is bugging you. Even if you're not consciously thinking about it, it may be wracking your brain and making you cranky.

So whether you need a sandwich, a nap or just some quiet time to figure things out, being cranky can really put a stop to your day and turn off those around you. Do yourself a favor and turn your day around!
