21 Jul Happy Brains, Happy Teens: Improving Teen Mood By Changing Habits
Teen mood can change in the blink of an eye. Puberty can cause your teen to have mood swings regularly. No one wants to deal with a teen who is in a foul mood. So what are some ways to help your teen feel happier on a daily basis? One of the answers to that question may lie in specific habits that can help rewire the brain to improve overall teen mood. By doing certain things each day, your teen can feel happier and will be less dark and stormy (so there will be less slamming doors and unreasonable behavior).
Rewiring your teen’s brain to improve teen mood
In her book “Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels”, Dr. Loretta G. Breuning describes different ways you can rewire your brain to release “happy chemicals”, or the chemicals in your body that can improve your mood.
