Feeling Angry or Irritated?

If you’re outside and feeling angry, it might be because you forgot your sunglasses. Yes, squinting can make you angry.

“On the sunniest days, we squint; and squinting can make us angry,” explains Daniele Marzoli, PhD, a psychologist at Italy’s University of Chieti-Pescara.

The screwed-up expression we make when we squint is essentially a frown. Since mood and facial muscles are linked, the face signals to the brain that we’re irritated. The link between squinting and feeling irritated occurs almost instantly.

Luckily, there is a quick and easy fix to this mood changer: sunglasses.

So, to avoid feeling angry or irritated the next time you head outside, remember to wear your sunglasses.

  1. Thank you Sugarblue Mojo. Good advice. I love my sunglasses and don’t often forget them, but when I do, I start squinting, and get very angry!
    I love your blog.
