Why does it feel impossible to constantly be in a good mood?
Even more frustrating, why does my mood shift so dramatically from one day to the next?
I used to ask myself these questions all the time.
I could be following the same routine every day, but one day I would feel wonderful and the next horrible.
This inconsistency was the most confusing aspect of my mood, and it wasn’t small ups and downs – but great highs and nearly unmanageable lows.
Instead of trying to solve this issue, I initially tried to ride the waves.
On my good days, I tackled everything on my to-do list. The bad days were just write offs – sitting at home and doing absolutely nothing. This wasn’t a long term solution.
The unfortunate truth is that this wasn’t just my experience. I know that there are millions of other people that are going through what I went through.
And, while it’s comforting to know that you’re not alone, it’s even more comforting to know that someone in your position managed to get out of it.
That’s what I did.
And I want to share my roadmap to make it easier for you to stop this rollercoaster of emotions and finally find the stability that you’re looking for.
To navigate the maze of my emotions, I broke it down into 3 parts:
- Managing Stress
- Reducing Anxiety
- Elevating Overall Mood
By breaking it down, I was able to make my goals more achievable – the question was no longer this big and vague question of “how do I improve my mood?”
And the breakthrough happened when I started researching genetics.
I felt like I regained control of my health the moment I started looking into my DNA.
So that was my first step, and that’s the step that I suggest you take as well.
The truth is, if you don’t understand your body, it nearly is impossible to constantly be in a good mood.
Just imagine you’re given a 1,000-piece puzzle without a reference picture. You might eventually put it together, but it’d be a tedious, trial-and-error process.
It’s the same thing with your mood.
Without understanding your body’s unique genetic blueprint, you’re trying to piece together your mood without seeing the full picture.
As I dived deeper into understanding my mood, I discovered the huge impact our genes have on how we feel.
Certain genes can influence how you respond to stress, or how your body metabolizes certain vitamins crucial for mood regulation.
This realization was a game-changer. Suddenly, I had a map that helped me understand the unique intricacies of my body.
But decoding our genes isn’t always straightforward.
That’s where SelfDecode comes into play.
