Mood isn’t something controlled by any one set of factors. Everything affects your mood, including your body’s chemical reactions, your personality, and environmental factors. Causes of mood swings include everything from bipolar disorder to not enough sleep to high stress levels. More often than not, many of these factors contribute at the same time.
Managing your emotional well-being isn’t as simple as flipping a switch. You have to take a varied, holistic approach, and it starts with treating yourself well. Get a full night’s rest, eat healthy and balanced meals, making the time to stay active and exercise, and manage stress levels by talking to friends and family or just taking time for yourself to unwind. A solid self-care routine will go a long way toward keeping your mood in check. These things can all help you adjust your mood as you wish—especially when they’re done in conjunction with the benefits of chiropractic.
