Increases or decreases of certain chemicals in the body start having significant effects on a man’s emotions. And it is due to the virtue of this that men find themselves as moody as women. As generally it can be observed around us that women are more likely to be associated with being more emotional.
It is because huge fall and elevations of estrogen and other chemicals in a woman’s body create great emotional imbalances. However, a man’s mood swings are a little less dramatic and usually last only a few hours or a day, depending on how much testosterone has decreased.

3. Interrogate yourself before reacting very strongly to your emotions.
