If laughter is the best medicine, then negative mood swings are the worst poisons. To your health, that is.
Moods and attitudes play a pivotal role in our health. A happy go lucky person tends to be a lot healthier than a moody person. Negative moods can adversely affect your health and slow down your recovery time from diseases and illnesses. How many times have you seen a crouchy, moody person in the pink of health? Not many times, I dare say.
Actually, there are 3 negative moods that can affect your health. If you know these, then you can take steps to prevent or avoid going into these negative mood swings :-
1.) It is a known fact that depressed people take a longer time to recover from illnesses and often develop complications more easily. Depression can hinder the body’s normal healing process. If you are troubled emotionally, do seek professional help before you fall into a depression. It could literally save your life and make life a lot easier for your loved ones as well.
2.) Another mood killer is loneliness. Have you heard of the saying “I feel lonely even though I’m not alone”? Human beings are social creatures so we all need company and social interaction. Everyone needs a good friend, confidant, companion, etc to share life’s ups and downs. If you don’t have a friend, go find one now – even if it is only in cyberspace. Online friends are a great way to relieve boredom and loneliness. Just make sure you don’t go overboard and ignore your real life.
3.) Stress is another enemy of your health. Stress can result in diseases and illnesses like high blood pressure, stomach problems and so on. Money worries, work pressure, children, etc can be very stressful. If you are overly stressed out, it can affect your mood and health negatively. So take time to relax and unwind every now and then. Taking things easy is the way to a better, healthuer lifestyle.
To recap, in order to ensure our good health, we need to negate the effects of our moods and attitudes through moderation and a change of lifestyle. Bad eating habits are mood killers, not instantly, but gradually.
Drinking less coffee, reducing alcohol intake, smoking less can help reduce stress and improve our health. Take a walk in the park, listen to some relaxing music, read a good book, or go to an art gallery. These can also help you improve your mood and health.
