If you’ve found that your mood tends to swing and flow throughout the day, sometimes happy, sometimes sad, sometimes aggravated, then you’re probably a relatively normal person. Most of us have periods of high or low mood. If you feel that these swings are hard to judge and not necessarily moored to your daily experience, then it may be that a medical evaluation is needed.

However, if you find that you just want to improve your mood and avoid tiring slumps throughout the day, then it’s worth considering a few healthy lifestyle changes to make. You may be surprised just how many influences there can be on your mood, from managing your gut biome to focusing on better, quality sleep and being exposed to fresh air, what matters is taking a careful approach towards managing your health and moving forward with confidence from there.

As such, in this post, we’ll discuss how to keep your mood consistent throughout the day in the healthiest way possible. Without further ado, please consider some of the following advice:

Manage Your Caffeine & Carb Intake

If you’re used to caffeine and carb slumps, you know how deeply this can effect your mood on a daily basis. It’s not fun to feel like crashing when you’re at work, or when trying to be productive on your day off. That’s why it can be worth switching strong coffees or energy drinks with matcha or green tea, as this helps release caffeine gently over time. The same goes for carbs - try eating lighter lunches or breakfasts to help avoid those midday slumps that make you feel done with everyone for an hour or two - even if everything is going fine.

Consider Your Gut Biome

It’s always good to consider your gut biome and how that contributes to your mood. Restoring gut health after antibiotics can help improve your mood. Why? Because the natural homeostasis provided within your body can be altered by the bacteria in your gut, and that can affect your mood. With a healthy good biome (natural healthy bacteria through some sugarfree yogurts can be beneficial for this too!) you’ll find that in general, your diet is sustaining your mood, not harming it.

It’s All About Sleep

Put simply, it’s impossible to sustain a good mood throughout most of the day if you’re exhausted. Sure, some sleep deprivation may have a temporary ‘glow’ feeling, but that’s not sustainable nor something to aim at. In actual fact, this comes from similar brain effects to intoxication thanks to a lack of rest. As you can see, this will play havoc with your health. A good night’s sleep is the best thing you could ever do for your daily mood, outside of escalating your condition to a mental health professional if you need it. As such, investing in your sleep hygiene is essential and always wise.

With this advice, we hope you can continue to keep your mood consistent and mostly positive throughout the day, accounting for the natural ebb and flow of emotions.
