5 Simple Techniques To Get Out Of A Bad Mood In Under 5 Minutes
Eat food (Healthy food)
I don't know about you, but when I'm hungry, I'm kind of a terrible person to be around. Hunger is one feeling that can make us incredibly irritable and prone to angry outbursts.
However, be sure to eat something that is good for you. Comfort foods that are sweet and calorie dense can actually have the opposite effect.
Some good options include a tall glass of almond milk or any food that is high in magnesium.
Certain smells (Aromatherapy)
Research has found that scents such as orange and lavender can help reduce levels of anxiety while simultaneously boosting our mood.
One study discovered that, when orange and lavender ambient scents were placed in a dental office, patients experienced decreased feelings of anxiety and improved mood as they waited for their dental procedures.
This is when compared to other patients who either listened to music, or got neither music nor the orange and lavender scents.
