How to Manage your Mood Swings

We all have to deal with mood swings every now and again. There is some much going on in life, it is impossible to be happy every time. But there are ways to deal with the crazy mood swings, and ensure we are as happy as we can be. There is no known cause of mood swings as at time of writing, and there are different ways of handling them. Here are the ways I manage my swinging moods:

 

I have a routine

I like to stick to a routine, that way I know how my day, week or month would look like. That pattern improves me mood because I feel in charge of my life, if that makes sense. Some days are more flexible than others, but it is pretty much the same schedule. Research has also shown that having a routine helps regulate emotional highs and lows. That is the reason why many babies strive when they have a routine.

 

I exercise

I have started taking my health and fitness very seriously, and it feels amazing. The endorphins released during exercise helps control stress and improves mood drastically. Even moderate exercise like walking can help relieve frequent or abrupt changes in mood. It works like magic for me. I feel so good after a good jog.

 

I sleep

Beauty sleep always helps combat bad moods, so I try to get a good amount of sleep. Sleep deprivation is the worst thing ever. I remember when I was pregnant, I couldn’t sleep for a weird reason. And I would get up in the morning feeling horrible. It was so crazy. I didn’t understand why I couldn’t fall asleep but I guess it had to do with the hormones and all. And then once I gave birth, all I wanted to do was sleep, and they didn’t let me, lol. I was sleep deprived for months.

 

I eat

I am a very grumpy person when I am hungry, so I try not to get too hungry before I eat. Nutrition is a very important component in mood management. Remember the saying – ‘a hungry man is an angry man’? Having the right amount of nutrients and avoiding large consumption of sugar, alcohol, and caffeine will help reduce the frequency of mood swings. I am very hyper when I have more than 2 cups of coffee, or 2 cans of coke, and when I am hyper, it affects my moods, so I stick to 1 cup or can a day.

 

I read

I love reading and I have discovered reading does help my mood swings. I read hundreds of blog posts a week, and 1 book or magazine a week, and that improves my mood and my stress levels drastically. Relaxing with a good book and a good cup of teat is the best medicine some days.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.
