Usually when you feel an irritated or emotional imbalance, the chances are high that your body lacks enough sleep. An adult body needs almost 6 to 7 hours of sleep per day and even more if you exercise. So make sure you get enough sleep.
Eat a balanced diet:

When your body lacks important nutrients, it leads to serious health problems. In addition, you end up facing emotional distress and anxiety. You should eat enough fruits and vegetables. In addition, eating nuts and lentils strengthens your heart. Try to avoid caffeine, sugar and processed foods as much as possible.
Expose your body to sunlight:

Be social, as much as you can:
Isolation and lack of communication are the two biggest causes of depression, mental and physical illnesses. No matter how busy your family and work life is, try to spend some time with friends and spend time with them.
Communicating with others lowers stress levels. If you've heard of laughter therapy it also has the same purpose of reducing stress where you laugh with other people. Everyone needs acceptance and friendship that is only fulfilled when you socialize with others.

Hobbies help us stay busy and engaged. When you are interested in certain activities and enjoy doing them, you take healthy steps to improve your emotional well-being.

The biggest reason for mood swings, depression and anxiety is when a person gets stuck in previous events. Negative "self-talk" such as "why people did this to me" not only steals happiness but causes the person to miss opportunities that the present is tired of offering.

Do not take life too seriously. Those who remain happy, smile more and try to stay happy experience a better quality of life than those who are worried all the time. According to a study, children laugh 200 times a day while adults laugh 15 times a day.
