How Can I Get Rid Of An Irritable Mood
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Contrary to popular belief, there are a lot of people who don't wake up in the morning in a happy mood and sometimes the cause(s) are quite unknown. Generally, people always have a reason as to why they're waking up in an irritable mood but sometimes, it's just hard to figure out what directly is the problem. For example, there are people who have stressful jobs that demand a lot of their time and energy that takes them away from everything else in their life or the person could be a woman whose going through a very tough time alone which is often the case; the cause could be anything.

People who are in an irritable mood tend to take it out on the world because they don't have it in themselves to fix whatever is wrong. An assistant manager of a restaurant gets moody when he or she has to pick up someone else's slack when they don't show up for work. When it comes down to women, pregnancy is mainly the time when they're in this kind of mood because their hormones are out of whack to the point where it's messing with their mental state.

For some who are born with mental illnesses, they are more likely to exhibit moodiness than those who aren't, these kinds of people are usually given medication in order to control their mood so as to not let it get out of control. For those who don't have a mental illness and are in a bad mood can usually combat it by trying to find out what's the source of it. For some, it's fear related like that person is afraid of something that they can't stop like aging. For others, it's life in general and what they feel they can't change about it.

However, there are ways that a person can go about getting over the irritable mood they're in. For example, confronting the cause of the mood head on, most people won't do this because it's too hard for them to admit that the very thing that's irritating them isn't bothering them at all. However, they must confront the cause or they'll never get over it. For example, if it's a person then they should definitely confront that person so there won't be any bad feelings in the future especially if those two people will end up having to lean on each other.

If the problem lies within themselves then they should consider isolation until they get their problem solved because it's not fair for them to take it out on the people around them, and the rest of the world especially if they didn't have anything to do with it. People who are in an irritable mood should take some time and invest in a hobby because ten times out of ten, a person's hobby usually brings them peace of mind and usually calms them down especially if they're working a stressful job that requires them to be there all day long everyday.

In closing, an irritable mood can be fought by finding the real cause of the mood and confronting it head on so people can get on with their life and not dwell on being irritable.
