Whether it’s bad sleep or rush hour traffic, Canadian men can find themselves struggling with moods so bad it could cause an exodus of beavers from our great nation.

What we all forget to consider is that these stressful feelings have harmful effects on our body. Not only will stress lower your sex drive, the most common effects include frequent headaches, insomnia, and decreased productivity.

Take a walk and get some fresh air. A super easy way to shake a bad mood is to simply change your surroundings. Even better, spend time outdoors and in nature – doing this has been linked to lower stress levels.

2) Smile like you mean it

Real or fake the act of smiling triggers your brain to release endorphins, a natural chemical that relieves stress and makes you feel good. Better yet, turn on your favourite comedy. A good laugh helps us release bottled up emotion.

3) Breathe

When you feel a situation heating up and you need a quick fix, remember to breathe properly. Simply paying more attention to your breath can instantly lower your stress and increase relaxation. Start by breathing normally and gradually lengthen your exhalation to activate your body’s “chill out” response.

4) Get it on

5) Get moving
