If you are a human being you probably have emotional mood swings. At times, you feel awesome. At other times, you want the world to just be quiet. I feel you.

So, for all of us wanting to break out of our bad moods when that dreadful time comes, just do this:

Do jumping jacks for 60 seconds. (Or push-ups. Or jogging. Or, whatever that gets your body moving — that gets you exercising.)

That’s it.

It’s so easy, it doesn’t hurt.

Why Exercise Makes You Feel Better:

When you’re in a bad mood, you typically have super-low energy and you become very  intense – according to CSU Long Beach Researcher Robert Thayer: “People think of self-esteem as a fixed trait, but in fact it varies all the time. When you’re feeling energetic, your good feelings about yourself are much stronger.”

Hey, but if I’m low in energy when I’m tired, how can I exercise? – you might say

Relax. It’s just a minute. Time yourself.

Jump around. Shake your butt a little.

Do anything. You can do it.

The moral:

To get rid of a bad mood in as soon as possible, move your body!
