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.

Beauty Products for Busy Bloggers

Working from home alone with two babies under the age of 2 is hard work. I usually have to write and schedule posts well in advance to keep Fashion and Style Police running. Then comes the publishing of the posts, the sharing and resharing on the various social media channels, which I personally find is the hardest part of it all but I am gradually becoming a social butterfly.

It is a full-time job and I can only do so much when my babies are napping during the day, so that means I do most of my writing and other blog stuff at night and in the early hours of the morning, which also means I am ALWAYS under a lot of stress, and my face is usually messed up with all sort of stress related skin conditions.

I have been busy discovering products to help relieve stress and tension, and help with my facial breakouts, and I currently have my eye on the these two products sold on Just My Look:

Babyliss Pro Foot Spa

I don’t have the luxury of time to go to a salon for a proper pedicure or manicure so this foot spa will be so ideal. This smart product is created to help relieve stress and tension on tired and aching feet with a combination of massage heat and bubbles. I am usually up and about so it will be great to unwind with this in the evening after a busy day.  I will be using this a skin care oil, probably Bio Oil to perform the magic. This Babyliss Pro Foot Spa is a must-have this Christmas. A 20 minutes morning session in this will help me stay energised and relaxed all day.

Kaeso Calming Cleanser

If you read my previous product review, you will know my face breakouts a lot (click here if you missed the post) and it has become worse since I had my babies. At the end of day, the breakouts all come down to stress, the more stressed out I am, the more breakouts I have, so I need a face cleanser to help my sensitive skin look refresh and energised.

I have been struggling to manage it for months now and I am open to trying any product that promises a miracle. I have recently come across this Kaeso Calming Cleanser sold on the Just My Look website and I am eager to try it out for myself. This calming cleanser is specially designed for the sensitive skin, it gently removes makeup and other skin impurities, leaving the skin cleansed and soothed.

This Kaeso Calming Cleanser sounds like a product that will be right up my street. I will be trying it out.

Have you tried any of these products before? Do you have any beauty product(s) that helps relieve stress and tension?
