People love to blame women’s grumpy or touchy moods on it being that time of the month, and we should all know how frustrating that gets.
Well, it turns out our sudden onsets of grumpiness may be because of a totally unexpected other reason, which ISN’T just exclusive to women.
It turns out that we can’t fight the moonlight of the full moon, because some researches are heavily suggesting it can have serious affects on human behaviour.
No, it doesn’t turn anyone into sexy werewolves like Tyler Lockwood, but here’s the lowdown on the myths and facts of ways the full freakin’ mood might be to blame for our more naughty than nice behaviour.
Full moons interfere with our sleep patterns, meaning we become more agitated due to its affect on our subconscious. Some believe this may also be due to the extra light.
Studies show that people are statistically more violent during a full moon, with there being an increase in aggravated assaults and crimes at such times.
No, that does NOT give you an excuse for being violent.
The full moon affects animals – so why not us? Previous studies have found emergency rooms have recorded higher incidents of injuries from pets and animals during a full moon.
We’ve all heard stories of people doing crazy things under the light of the full moon, right? Well, looking again at emergency room stats we’ll see a rise in injuries during full moons… meaning we’re likely taking a few more risks.
Basically, think about it: if the moon affects the tides and humans are made up of a hella lot of water, then how wouldn’t it affect us?!
SO. What does all this mean? We can use the whole it’s that time of the month comment on guys, too.
