Have you ever feel like you want to scold people without any reason? Or do you ever all of the sudden feel down and just want to cry? Or have you ever meet someone like that? hehe..if you do, please forgive them. This mood swings is usually happen to women especially when there is a change on their hormone. But, this does not mean that men do not having it. There is also a mood swings causes by depression, feeling of boredom or hopelessness.
Most of us will think that depression is related to sadness. The fact is, it is also can bring feelings of moodiness, impatience, anger, or even just not caring. When all of that is out of your control, you do not need an apology here, you need to ask for a help, by seeing a therapist or counselor.
Some advice for you to be considered, if you ever face this situation:
- RECOGNIZE YOU’RE NOT ALONE. Although not every people experiences mood changes to the same degree, they are common.
- CATCH YOUR BREATH. Or count to 10. Or do something that lets you settle down for a few moments, especially if you’re feeling angry or irritable. Try to look at the situation from the point of view of a wise observer.
- TALK TO PEOPLE YOU TRUST. Friends can help each other by realizing that they’re not alone in their feelings. Talking to parents is important, too. Parents can share their own experiences dealing with bad moods. Plus, they’ll appreciate it if you try to explain how you feel instead of just slamming a door. Teachers and counselors are often good resources, and a doctor can help sort through questions about development. Keeping feelings inside can make them seem much worse.
- EXERCISE. Regular exercise produces more beta-endorphin, a hormone that controls stress and improves mood. Go for a run, play some tennis, ride your bike, or punch a punching bag.
- GET ENOUGH SLEEP. Though it can be hard to find enough time, getting adequate rest is very important. Being tired can lead to more sadness and irritability.
- CREATE. Get involved in some sort of project, like starting a journal or diary, building something out of wood, or starting an art or music piece. Writing can help you organize and express your thoughts and feelings and will make things more manageable. Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or punctuation; the important thing is just to get your thoughts on paper. Do the same thing with paint, sculpture, music, or other art forms. Put your feelings into your artwork.
- CRY. There’s nothing wrong with crying; in fact, it often makes a person feel better. However, if you find that you are sad, irritable, bored, or hopeless much of the time, or if you just can’t seem to shake the blues, you might be depressed and need help from a counselor or doctor. If you’re feeling stressed or angry a lot of the time, getting help could be very useful for you.
- WAIT. Just as you can get into a bad mood for what seems like no reason at times, that mood can also pass. If your negative mood sticks around too long, though — or if it’s interfering with the way you deal with friends, parents, school, or activities — then you may want to talk to a school counselor, parent, or therapist about what you can do to feel better.
Do talk to someone that you trust if you are in depress, believe me, you are not alone. The people who love you will never leave you if you are in need. By sharing your feeling, you can reduce your pressure and you will be able to laugh again, hehe.
