Abrupt change of moods is characteristic of many women. This is due to external and internal factors, individual characteristics of the body, and the period of life. It is essential to understand why your mood suddenly changes and you want to cry for no reason so that there is no chronic dissatisfaction and depressive disorders.
Sometimes it is enough to change the environment and, at least for a while, throw off the burden of familiar responsibilities and obligations. In other cases, professional counseling can help. For some women, a pleasant evening alone and watching your favorite movie is enough for a full recovery, vacation, and active recreation for others.
Reasons for tears for no reason
Psychologists point out that tears are a natural body reaction that does not occur for no reason.
Triggers can be both external, human-understandable factors and subconscious moments.
Such psychological defense is intended to protect the person from painful experiences. The reasons for the constant change of mood and a sharp decrease in the emotional background can be very different: from physiological and psychological to the usual overwork.
Sometimes, when one wants to cry for no reason is banal fatigue and emotional burnout. That is why it is essential to periodically switch from one activity to another.
Even your favorite job can get boring, if you devote 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to it.
- Take a walk at lunchtime;
- Eat delicious, healthy food. Find exciting trails in the city and neighborhood where you live;
- Even the most familiar places can open up a new perspective. Constantly change the way to familiar places: the supermarket, work, and gym. This activates and develops the right hemisphere and improves your mood.
When the body is overworked, exhausted, multitasking, and over-anxious, it is beneficial to take a break and rest. Get a good night’s sleep, eat a good meal, walk, and meet your loved ones.
During such a period, other realizations may come, and you may reconsider your schedule and lifestyle, which depletes the nervous system and leads to a state where you feel bad at heart.
Lack of sleep
A common condition, when everything is infuriating, and it is impossible to concentrate on daily tasks, is often associated with a lack of sleep. Inadequate or poor quality sleep will quickly throw even the most balanced and resilient person out of whack.
Check to see if you’re following the most important rules for a healthy, restful night’s sleep:
- Fall asleep in a cool, ventilated room:
- Limit exposure to any light sources, including the light bulb on your TV or other electrical appliance;
- Not to overeat at night;
- Give up watching TV and gadgets at least 60 minutes before going to bed;
- With sunset, switch the phone to “evening mode” so as not to disrupt the production of melatonin, the primary hormone of youth and good mood;
- Go to bed no later than 23:00-24:00 – this provides a full recovery of all body systems, including the nervous system.
Try to go to bed at the same time and sleep at least 7 hours. During this time, your body will fully recover and be ready for new achievements.
It is helpful to make herbal tea and add to it chamomile and mint. Place canvas or linen bags near the bed with fragrant lavender, and buy new linens. It is proven that sleeping on fresh linens after an aromatic bath is not only very pleasant but also good for the body.
Bawdiness and emotional swings are characteristic of women during the hormonal restructuring of the body:
- the period after the birth of the baby;
- Thyroid gland malfunction.
Sometimes several factors are layered on top of each other, and it becomes difficult to untangle the tangle. For example, a woman may face emotional burnout, stress, and multitasking after childbirth.
To relieve stress, accept help from loved ones, and use the services of a babysitter. Study materials, books, and online/offline courses prepare for pregnancy in advance.
In case of hormonal malfunctions, or thyroid problems, don’t put off going to the doctor. Timely correction of the disorder can significantly improve your quality of life and emotional well-being.
Very often, the mood worsens with the onset of autumn. There are many reasons for this: from a significant reduction in daylight hours to a lack of vitamin D3, which we all need for a good mood.
In the fall, there are failures at the level of biochemical reactions, which leads to tearfulness, frequent mood swings, sleepiness, and a decrease in performance.
During this period, connect all available methods for vivacity, activity, and well-being: seasonal berries and fruits, favorite music, more movement, and communicating with loved ones and loved ones in cozy autumn cafes.
Try to diversify your leisure time as much as possible, and try something new: drawing, dancing, vocal lessons, lessons in public speaking, and acting.
Try to communicate more with people who inspire you, and go to concerts, exhibitions, and seminars.
Autumn is not a time for depression. This period can maximize self-development and discover new abilities and talents like any other. It is important not to lose motivation and to look for new sources of inspiration.
Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
When morally unwell, you must review your diet and eliminate the lack of vital substances. “We are what we eat” is not just a catchphrase.
Our nutrition determines the fullness, intake, and absorption of fats, magnesium, and vitamins A, E, and D.
Such substances are vital for the work of the thyroid gland, the female reproductive system, which directly affects a woman’s health: her mood and appearance.
If your diet is not varied, you can take advantage of specially formulated vitamin and mineral complexes. Pay special attention to magnesium, B vitamins, iodine, vitamin D, and ascorbic acid.
Better yet, take a high-quality multivitamin complex several times a year, for example, in the fall and spring. These are transitional periods when the body needs to support the most. Take a blood test beforehand to detect deficiencies and consult a nutritionist.
Lack of traffic
Endorphins, the hormone of joy, cease to be produced by the body when there is a significant decrease in motor activity. This usually happens with the first cold snap.
Rainy weather and strong winds are not conducive to long walks. But there is always a way out: you can exercise at home or attend group classes in yoga classes or gyms. Even a circle around the stadium or your own house in any weather lifts your spirits and positively affects your physical condition.
If you catch yourself thinking that you regularly wake up in a bad mood, irritable, feeling depressed, and moody, then you need to act immediately.
What to do when you want to cry every day? It helps to cope with moping and tearfulness to be active:
- Walking in the fresh air: you can walk in silence alone with your thoughts or include your favorite music or podcast, an inspirational video/audio from someone who motivates;
- Yoga: performing asanas and breathing exercises perfectly stabilize the hormonal background, physical and mental body;
- Swimming: go to the beach, river, sea, or other open, natural bodies of water; visit the swimming pool. Being filled with the element of water always has a favorable effect on a woman’s psychological and emotional state. It is helpful to take a bath at home, adding fragrant foam, sea salt, and your favorite essential oils to the water. Light candles and devote time only to yourself;
- Physical sports: badminton, tennis, running.
Treat yourself to a meeting and warm companionship with your loved ones. Sometimes a few days of rest and a weekend in a beautiful, picturesque place is enough to restore your mood and inner fullness quickly.
Going to another country is unnecessary and spends a lot of money. Explore your homeland: a few hundred kilometers away from the city, you can find fantastic nature and filling, picturesque places.
Aromatherapy works great: add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to an aroma lamp: rose, pine scents, lavender, refreshing citrus, spicy vanilla. Wrap up in a cozy plaid and enjoy an exciting book you’ve been putting off for so long.
Sometimes watching your favorite comedy or a new issue of a comedy show is enough. You switch to laughing and smiling, and the condition changes on a biochemical level. It is important not to stay in front of the computer or TV for too long and to remember how important it is to change activities regularly.
It would help if you did not binge on stress or try to neutralize a bad mood with alcohol. This will only worsen the situation and cause additional dissatisfaction, aggression, and bad attitudes.
As support, it is recommended that you often ask yourself the question: What am I feeling inside myself right now? What feelings and emotions am I experiencing?
You can write them out on a white sheet of paper and mentally transform them into bright, pure feelings. You should not suppress your own emotions but acknowledge and accept them. This will help you more quickly recognize the problem and the inner conflict and find ways to solve it.
The situation is aggravated when you want to cry but can’t. Such a condition requires a deep relaxation of the hormonal and lymphatic systems. A person cannot always consider the actual cause of the tears, so it is recommended to consult experienced, qualified specialists.
During a session with a psychologist, you can quickly figure out what acted as the primary trigger and restore the psycho-emotional state.
Good luck to you, and have a good mood!
