Does any one know how to control mood swings without going to the doctors or taking tablets?
sleep, rest, finding your pace, relaxation, working/dealing with anxiety mostly.
all of the above and a healthy diet.
i personally am intolerant to cows milk, and drinking it can give me mood swings amongst other things...
i forgot kess- a healthy diet and exercise.
doing something expressive, having an outlet for your emotions.
i'd cut out caffeine and any stimulants
then again i don't know if going low is your problem or going manic, for me it used to be the latter and still is if i don't sleep. i stay away from any stimulants whatsoever- caffeine being one of them. i do eat chocolate but that's occasionally.
as for alcohol, personally i found if i'm manic, getting drunk is definitely not a good idea as i'm pretty much there already.
I still get them a lot, but I find meditation helps me.
thats a good list plates
that's a good idea and i'm trying something from a book in the library atm. i really recommend looking at how you're breathing and paying attention to it.
i think it's called 'mindfulness' which was key to help me look after myself /stay in the moment over the yrs and i did that without thinking.
thanks kess :smile:
I will try some of these ideas
probably the hormones in the cows milk. that would be my guess.
I only have milk in coffee, do you think that small amount would affect me this much?
