As someone with mild bipolar, I have needed to understand my moods more than most. A mood for me goes beyond the basic feelings and its about how calm, relaxed, energetic, depressed or frustrated we are at this moment and in what direction our moods is heading.
It is then able understanding how our mood is affected by our environment and then how it affects how we respond to things are it. If we can understand why something quite minor has really irritation us, because of how we are generally feeling, we can do something positive about it.
I feel our moods are an indicator of how well our is in terms of physical and mental well-being. Unfortunately to success in life, it is necessary to go the occasional extra mile and this can make being balanced a never ending struggle to achieve.
So how is your mood today?
