Concomitant with the decline in these hormones, some women will also experience severe mood balance changes. Not all women, but a great many, will undergo these kinds of changes. There are ways to help, though.
1. Getting Exercise
Exercise is good for you. It’s good for a very long list of physical and mental problems that folks across the land experience every single day – getting the blood running a little faster where possible is a great tactic.
When your estrogen levels fall, you can experience a fall in dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. All of these are usually regulated by the estrogen, and when that goes, so do the others. Exercise is a great way of restabilizing these amounts in your body.
2. Destressing Yourself
Stress makes everything worse. If you’re in a stressful environment, you should try to find a way to minimize and manage it. There are approaches like yoga, meditation, and a host of others, and one of these may work wonders for you.
For many of us, a nice hot bath and a book are a great way to go. Whatever works for you should be put in place as often as you can manage. It only takes a little oasis of tranquility to make all the world of difference.
3. Eating Well
Very rich, fatty, and spicy foods may well have a deleterious effect on your moods, especially if you’re already struggling with them. Opting for a healthier and milder diet can have some really positive results in this regard.
Similarly, cutting out the heavily caffeinated drinks will help too. In addition, alcohol is a major source of mood destabilization for folks in general. If you are experiencing difficulty with moods, cutting out the alcohol is very advisable.
4. Sleeping Well
You have to sleep, just as all other animals must. It’s right at the core of maintaining a healthy body and mind. Setting a routine that you follow quite rigidly is a great first step. Your body likes to know which mode to enter next, so routine is the key.
Again, avoiding stressors and heavy consumption of strong food and drink in the hours before bed is advisable. That way, your mind knows when it’s time to sleep and can power down in anticipation of this moment.
5. Some Exciting Developments
The tech world has thrown its hat into the ring when it comes to mood regulation. There are now many gadgets out there that fall under the umbrella term of “wearable devices”. These can monitor your biometric data to determine your mood.
A great new example here is Hapbee. This wearable device is considered a “biohacking” tool, allowing you to essentially “hack” your own moods. It reads your biometric data, and then you can set it to produce certain vibes, according to your situation.
This area promises to be a blossoming sector for the future, and it’s already looking pretty futuristic. Certainly, people will be on the lookout for devices of this sort from this point onwards, since managing mood is a wonderful hack indeed.
Nobody wants to be at the mercy of raging mood swings, and nobody wants to be around the folks who have them, either. It’s one of those social feedback loops. It may require a certain set of solutions working in combination, but there’s always a way.
