It’s normal to have days where you feel sad or days when you’re overjoyed. As long as your mood changes don’t interfere with your life to an extreme degree, they’re generally considered to be healthy.
On the other hand, you may have a medical condition if you switch from extremely happy to extremely depressed on a regular basis. If you have serious and frequent shifts in mood, you should talk about it to your parents / friends or may seek medical help.
Some causes of rapid changes in behaviour can be related to stress, mental health, hormones, medications, or other health conditions.
If your ups and downs aren’t affecting other aspects of your life negatively, you may be able to work through your shifts in mood without medical attention.
You might be able to regulate your moods if you do the following:

1. Track your Mood -
Start by tracking your mood. Keep a daily log for a week, and either check in with yourself a few times a day to see how you are feeling and then jot it down, or do it at the end of the day and ask “What emotions did I feel today?” By the end of the week, you will be able to see what emotions you experienced, what were the dominant emotions, and if you felt controlled by any of the emotions you felt or how well you handled them.
Knowing what triggers your mood swings can help you catch them before they take over.
2. Exercise regularly -
Incorporate exercise as part of your daily routine, as working out can do just as much for your mind as it does for your body. This is always on any list because it helps promote chemicals in your brain that help you relax and feel good and releases endorphins that will keep making you feel good throughout the day.
3. Get sufficient Sleep -
So many of us forego sleep thinking it's no big deal, but how well-rested you are can determine how you deal with emotions. The more tired we are, the more difficulty we have managing challenging emotions and keeping things in perspective. When we feel tired, our thoughts can become distorted and negative, which directly impacts our mood. Make an effort to get good sleep each night.
Try not to do work right up until bedtime.
4. Eat more often -
If you have ever been super hungry, you know how important it is to stay full when it comes to your emotions. Too many of us skip meals because we are busy with work and other demands; it also leads to poor food choices in a time crunch. When you go too long without eating, your blood sugar levels drop, and symptoms of low blood sugar can overlap with the symptoms of panic. This can cause your emotions to become uncontrollable, and you might experience unnecessary changes in mood.
5. Avoid Stimulants -
As much as you might need your morning cup of coffee or that glass of wine after work, you should try to avoid stimulants like caffeine and alcohol, as they can not only intensify feelings of anxiety and depression, but cause mood swings as well . To help with mood swings, you want to focus on things that will balance, nourish, and calm a person.

6. Drink Water -
Staying hydrated is just as important as eating. In fact, even just mild dehydration can cause mood swings and fatigue. Drink at-least 3 -4 litres of Water daily.
Use any apps on your smartphone to remind you to drink water & track your intake of water to make sure you are getting enough throughout the day.

7. Meditate -
When you react at a level nine intensity to a situation that calls for a two, then that's a clear indication that you've been emotionally triggered by someone or something in your environment. Meditation and other mindfulness techniques can increase your awareness in such moments so that you can catch yourself in the act of overreacting and consciously chose a different response or behavior.
8. Talk it out -
Find someone to talk to, such as a friend, family member, or professional counsellor.
Keeping a journal to record your significant shifts in mood might also help you determine the reasons you experience them. Look for patterns and try to avoid situations or activities that directly impact your mood. Sharing the mood journal with your doctor can also help with your diagnosis.
The Bottom Line
Keep in mind that shifts in mood can vary drastically. Experiencing a range of emotions is a part of life. You may need to adjust your lifestyle to get back to feeling normal if you experience occasional mood shifts.
You should take mood changes that alter your behaviour and negatively affect your life or those around you seriously. Contact your doctor if you feel that severe shifts in mood have taken over your daily life or if you have been feeling out of control for a long period of time. These could be symptoms of a health condition.
