Drastic changes in emotion from one extent to another, often indicate mood swings. For example, just as you are having a joyful day, suddenly something triggers the mind, causing a mood collapse; sadness, hostility, or anger. Emotions may vary and switch instantaneously, initiating an imbalance of behavior that may seem uncontrollable.
This pattern is mostly seen amongst women as they experience mood swings twice as often as men, according to specialists. This is due to their premenstrual problems, pregnancy, etc, however, this tendency is also experienced by teens as they shift and grow through puberty. Gender-neutral factors such as stress, anxiety, past trauma, and adapting to new changes are related to physical attitudes, in comparison to smoking, drinking, lack of exercise, and other health factors that fall under behavioral attitudes affecting mood swings.
Easing the process begins by surrounding yourself with the right people. Our relationships affect us to an extent we don’t realize, thus getting rid of toxic relationships aids in spreading positivity in our mind. When the feeling of discomfort starts, take a step back, and breathe out the situation. Notice which elements have caused your behavior change and note them down in an attempt to recognize a motif. Seeking for balance in your diet, sleep, and exercise will allow you to take control of your body instead of letting it function through bad habits.
Control, therefore, is a substantial constituent one should adopt when approaching mood swings. Taking life into your own hands will not only ease this particular issue but also facilitate a healthier, balanced lifestyle. Break your routine with activities that bring out the positivity within you, and slowly notice a shift in your behavior through a switch in your lifestyle.
