How to conquer mood swings? HELP!

by jesus72knight 30 replies
There are lots of people suffering from 'mood swings'. They easily shift from one emotion to another. Take my case, I sometime feel happy and enthusiastic and then after a few minutes, I feel so sad and aggravated. Some say this is a psychological disorder.

What's your take on this issue and how to conquer it? Need your replies, Warriors.

    To be honest, I know what your going through. I also have these swings on occassion. I usually label this as depression. However in saying that, I don't always feel depressed. My mood simply moves into a kind of funk.

    To overcome this, I often start writing down all the things that I have achieved in my life. A sort of gratitude list for want of a better word.

    I have also found a little book by Joe Vitale to be of great value. "Life's Missing Instruction Manual." Read this & keep a notepad and pen at hand. Often my insights of today, help my moods of tomorrow.

    I hope this is of some value.

    To Your Success,

      Great idea. I think it's good to keep lists around of 1.) what you've accomplished, and 2.) what you want to accomplish. It always helps me.

    Being grateful for what you have is a great exercise for conquering or at least diminishing mood swings. Another thing you can do is meditate at least half an hour each day, as this will keep you more "centered" and less prone to be affected by external factors, which tend to induce mood swings.

    I know lots of people are suffering this. Worst thing is the people around them are not aware of what they are going through. And they themselves inflict some damage to the people around them like being rude and low-tempered for some time.

    If you are constantly in a high-stress environment and suffering from a lot of mood swings, I'd highly recommend meditating at least 30 minutes daily to become more calm and self-aware.

    Im'ers by their nature don't get out much.....Start moving, be it jogging or walking. Beter yet, go to a nature trail or area where it is really quiet and as you move, just focus on your environment and not yourself. Think about how wonderful your surroundings are and how everything around you is just perfect.

    Plus being in a quiet area will allow you to declutter your mind and all of the inner chatter that often causes us to be at the whim of our emotions....Try it and see! It works!

    I believe we can control our emotions/mood swings. I used to go back and forth from what people said, situations I was in or about to be in, and just work. My mind would go crazy, one day I'd be happy as a clam, because I made money, the next day I'd be sad because I didn't make as much as the day before.
    So I started an experiment with my own self. I observed how I felt at certain times, and how quickly "things" changed how I felt at that time.
    Then I realized myself changing how I felt at that moment and tried to reverse the action. I became aware at how my own body was being affected by things/situations, that if I pay close attention to, don't need to.

    So I went from being affected by things all the time, which affected my emotions, to knowing what is important enough to need my attention, and what I need to ignore. It helped a lot. Because I ignored all the other distractions that would otherwise take over my emotions and delay my progress.
    I hope that made sense.

    MOOD swings can be a symptom of a deeper problem, like Bipolar disorder. OR a hormonal imbalance.

    Even your DIET can create and cause mood swings, and if your "circadian" rhythyms are in conflict with how you live your life, you're going to have these your whole life.

    So, the very first thing is to find out if there is a medical or pyschological reason for these.

    But let's say there ISN'T.

    Still, as is pointed out, many people have their ups and downs. Why?

    Well, IF their bodies and minds are in balance or not totally out of whack...as often as not you'll find people LACK PASSION in their lives and along with that they have feelings of inadequacy.

    They compare themselves to how they think other's are doing.

    The best I've found to help people from these mood swings (and even in clinical settings, once the medication/solution has been established {could just be a vitamin deficiency} this works)...

    IS to have a PLAN of ACTION for the future.

    A reason to live. A reason to celebrate. A reason to persist when the mood says NO.

    Reasons come from Anticipation. From small goals reached along the way to bigger ones.

    When responsibility is accepted and the way life works is acknowledged...no one escapes the occassional bird doo doo dropped on their heads. IT happens.

    But having a PLAN and a goal, a purpose within a Life's Purpose...will alleviate the mood swings and help you to stay the course.

    STEP ONE, make sure it isn't clinical.
    STEP TWO, plan for what excites, motivates and captivates.
    STEP THREE, go on the journey toward your dream, picking up the gold and tools along the way (yea, sort of like that video game you play).

    BE working daily on better tomorrow while ENJOYING the one you have today...and your moods will begin to disappear and a constant AUTHENTIC smile will be your calling card.

    Whenever I'm feeling bad I tend to just sit down and think about it. Like I figure out just what it is that's getting me down at the moment, find out why it gets me down and what I can do about it with my current knowledge and tools.

    I agree with gjabiz that it's important to rule out medical issues first. Diabetes, Deep Brain Seizure Disorder, and brain injury are three that I know can create havoc with mood. None of these are treatable with self-help books.

    The first question is How long have you been suffering from this? If it just started recently, did something happen in your life to trigger these "swings"? Also like gjabiz said, make sure it is not medical. To give a personal example, my wife recently started having these type of "swings" when things got stressful at work for her. Once the problem was removed, she was back to normal.
