Take Back Control of Your Moods

We all have those days where it feels as though your emotions are all over the place. Where it feels like you're constantly switching from excitement, to irritation, to total misery. Heck, for a lot of people that's an average Tuesday! But when your moods start to swing like this all too often it can be a very upsetting and frustrating experience. It can be difficult to focus on what you want to do; it can impact your relationships; it can even make getting out of bed in the morning something of a struggle. But do you just have to suffer through it? Fortunately the answer it no! There are plenty of ways to take back control of your moods and stop them pushing you around. Here are just a few things that you can do to get your emotions back under control. 

Stay hydrated

The vast majority of people simply aren't drinking enough water. That might sound like an incredibly simple and obvious thing to say, but it really is having a major impact on the way many people feel on a day to day level. If you're not hydrated, then you're going to end up feeling tired, bloated, and unhappy. A lot of people end up seriously worried about the state of their health when it turns out that all that was really wrong was that they needed to be more hydrated. If you're already a very active person, then you can sync up a smart water bottle and Fitbit so that you can keep track of exactly how much water you're drinking throughout the day. Having a dedicated water bottle and knowing how much to drink from it each day is a great way to clearly measure whether or not you're properly hydrated.

Sleep more

Pretty much everyone loves to sleep. If they didn't then the snooze button on millions of alarm clocks all over the world wouldn't be so well worn. And yet, it's bizarre that so many people, despite their love of sleep, don't seem to be getting nearly enough of it. Ask yourself, what time are you getting to sleep each day? Human beings are not nocturnal creatures, and even if you're getting your full eight hours every day, if you're going to sleep and waking up very late every day, that's going to make you feel sluggish, tired, and it will be very hard to control your moods.

Talk to someone

Of course, sometimes the inability to control your moods is hinting at something a little more serious than dehydration or a lack of sleep. If that's the case, then you should always feel as though you can talk to someone about it. You probably have friends and family that you can lean on, but you might also want to think about speaking to a trained professional as well. There's often a lot of stigma around it, but your mental wellbeing is just as important as your physical health, so there is absolutely nothing wrong with seeing someone qualified to try and take care of it.
