Do you ever wake up in a bad mood, and you're not sure WHY?I know I do sometimes. Usually I just try to distract myself and hopefully it passes. But then, isn't everyone in a bad mood at the crack of 4:00 a.m.? If you're not in my situation, though, you  may have other underlying reasons.   Here are three possible reasons, according to science.

 

1.  You're not getting enough fruits and vegetables.  A recent study found that people who eat seven servings of produce a day tend to be happier, less anxious, and less likely to be depressed.

 

2.  You're dehydrated.  A 2018 study found that even being a LITTLE dehydrated can put you in a bad mood.  In general, men should get at least 3.7 liters of water a day, and women should get 2.7.  And yes, things like coffee and juice DO count.

 

3.  You check Facebook too much.  A study this year found that if you're on there constantly, you start realizing it's a HUGE waste of time . . . which makes you feel bad about yourself.  And that probably applies for things like fantasy football too.

 

So, drink some water, eat some carrots, and get off social media.  Just stick around here on our websites and app, you'll find an entertaining article or two, definitely!
