I have ever heard that someone wants to do something which must have a good mood especially women. Some men do the same thing like the women too but not always. I have researched a few people on twitter that they always do something good things when they are in a good mood. Example if they are in the good mood, they do something positive thing like cleaning a room, doing a homework, reading books, thinking a positive thing, doing some positive activities, playing with their friends, they just do what they want and etc. And when they are in a bad mood, they change to be somebody else or just listening music, being silent in their room, sleeping, and do not want to talk and just keep their mouth shut. For this time, I will tell you some tips for keeping you are always in a great mood. Because everybody wants to be different everytime even thought in the nice mood.
A mood is an emotional state. mood is different from emotions that are less specific, less intense, and less to be triggered by a particular stimulus or event. Mood generally has either a positive or negative valence. In other words, people typically speak when being in a good mood or a bad mood. Mood also differs from temperament or personality traits which are even longer lasting. However, personality traits such as optimism and neuroticism predispose certain types of moods. Long term disturbances of mood such as depression and bipolar disorder are considered mood disorder. But it often can be inferred from posture and other behaviors. "We can be sent into a mood by an unexpected event, from the happiness of receiving a salary or to be angry when discovering betrayal by a partner. We may also just fall into a good or bad mood".
Sleep is a major factor in one's mood. If a person is sleep deprived they could become more irritable, more prone to stress, and less energized throughout the day. "Studies have shown that even partial sleep deprivation has a significant effect on mood. University of Pennsylvania researchers found that subjects who were limited to only 4.5 hours of sleep a night for one week reported feeling more stressed, angry, sad, and mentally exhausted. When the subjects resumed normal sleep, they reported a dramatic improvement in mood".

Like positive moods, negative moods have important implications for human mental and physical. Mood are basic psychological states that can occur as a reaction to an event or can surface for no apparent external which cause. Since there is no intentional object that causes the negative mood, it has no specific start and stop date. It can last for hours, days, weeks, or longer. Negative moods can manipulate how individuals interpret and translate the world around them, and can also direct their behavior. Negative moods, such as anxiety, often lead individuals to misinterpret physical symptoms. According to Jerry Suls, a professor at the University of Iowa, people who are depressed and anxious tend to be in rumination.
I take a case if someone get a depression. depression is based on the following below.

1.   Poor appetite with weight loss or increased appetite with weight gain.
2.   Insomnia or hypersomnia.
3.   Physical hyperactivity or inactivity.
4.   Loss of interest or pleasure in usual activities or decrease in sexual drive.
5.   Loss of energy and feelings of fatigue.
6.   Feelings of worthlessness, self-blame or guilt that is not right.
7.   Diminished ability to think or concentrate.

Positive mood. There have been many studies done on the effect of positive emotion on the cognitive mind and there is speculation that positive mood can affect our minds in good or bad ways. Generally, positive mood has been found to enhance creative problem solving and flexible yet careful thinking. Some studies have stated that positive moods let people think creatively, freely, and be more imaginative. Positive mood can also help individuals in situations in which heavy thinking and brainstorming is involved. In one experiment, individuals who were induced with a positive mood enhanced performance on the Remote Associates Task (RAT), a cognitive task that requires creative problem solving. Moreover, the study also suggests that being in a positive mood are able to broadens or expands mind such that information that may useful to the task at hand becomes more accessible for use. Consequently, greater accessibility of relevant information facilitates successful problem solving.
"Psychologists have found that even if you’re in bad mood, you can instantly lift your spirits by forcing yourself to smile." Numerous amounts of research studies have shown that making a facial expression, such as smiling, can produce effects on the body that are similar to those that result from the actual emotion, such as happiness. Paul Ekman and his colleagues have studied facial expressions of emotions and have linked specific emotions to the movement of specific facial muscles. Each basic emotion is associated with a distinctive facial expression. Sensory feedback from the expression contributes to the emotional feeling. Example, Smiling if you want to feel happy. Facial expressions have a large effect on self which anger and happiness which then affects your mood. Ekman has found that these expressions of emotion are universal and recognizable across widely divergent cultures.
I research on twitter that people who are in a good mood, they just hang out with their friends, playing games espeacially fun activities.
So, everybody has different mood, every time, every single day. But do not give up to change your mood from being bad mood into good mood. I believe for my self that we are able to reduce it if we want. Do not want to be controlled by a bad mood or being hyper when you are in good mood. But controlling your self is good way not to be being too much.
