(HealthDay News) -- Teens have a lot to deal with, including school, sports, friendships and changing hormones.
Sometimes, it's hard to understand why you are in a bad mood and can't seem to snap out of it.
Here are some suggestions that could make your bad mood easier to handle, courtesy of the Nemours Foundation:
- Recognize that you're not alone.
- Count to 10 and catch your breath.
- Talk to people you trust.
- Get enough sleep.
