Manage Your Mood With These Healthy Hacks

By Genevieve Cunningham

No one is in a good mood all the time. We all have those moments -- or sometimes those days -- when life just gets us down. We feel tired, irritable, and overwhelmed. When these moods happen every once in a while, it's not really a big deal. That's just part of the human experience. But when these moods become more frequent, slowly taking over more and more of our everyday lives, it's time to do something about it. Why? Because mood management is key to long-term health and happiness. If you're ready to get control of your emotions and manage your moods every day, take a look at these healthy hacks that can help you find success. 

Take Regular Laugh Breaks

Yes, laugh breaks are a thing. As children, we laugh all the time. Seriously, we laugh hundreds of times every day! Think back through your day today and over the last few days. How often have you laughed? As adults, we don't laugh enough. If you want to be in a better mood, you have to make the time to laugh. Stop working and watch a funny YouTube video. Read some jokes. Talk with a light-hearted friend. Do this regularly, and you'll be better able to monitor and manage your moods. 

Move Your Body

Movement is a great way to break a bad mood. When we move our bodies, we create endorphins and adrenaline. We create energy. And it's so hard to be in a bad mood when we create these hormones and chemicals in the body. Along with boosting our mood, movement helps us feel stronger in our bodies. We might bring physical benefits -- such as weight loss and strength building -- along with mood stability. It's a great way to boost health as a whole while improving the way that we feel on a regular basis. 

Go Outside

Nature is powerful. It is soothing and peaceful and good for every aspect of our health. Even in extreme conditions -- like when it's really hot or really cold -- nature can lower our stress levels and make us feel less wound up. If you're having trouble regulating your mood, make a little time every day to go outside and breathe the fresh air. Go for a walk or lay in the sun. Just get outdoors for the soothing effect that it has on both body and mind. 

If you're feeling out of sorts and experiencing bad moods on a consistent basis, it's time to take action. You don't have to live your life feeling less than your best. You can regulate your moods and find a little bit of stability in your life. Use these tips to get a handle on your moods, and start living your best life right now.
