We all get a bit moody at times, it's only human! But if your day feels like a rollercoaster of emotions, it's best not to worry about it.

As it turns out, those who swing on the pendulum of emotional intensity may be showing signs of a natural ability to adapt to change. Which is totally a good thing.

The University College London has created a theory that moodiness helps to reinforce our responses to various environmental factors.

If an experience makes us happy, we are going to seek more of it. And in contrast, if an experience is unpleasant, it will likely bring us down. 

Being able to flip a switch when it comes to your reactions is beneficial in terms of survival, in both your social and work life. 

"The ubiquity of moods and the extent of their impact on our lives tells us that, throughout the course of evolution, our moodiness must have conferred a significant competitive advantage," said lead expert Dr Eran Eldar.

Now, the study did admit that being moody all the time can lead to depression, but Dr Eldar added that “being moody at times may be a small price to pay for the ability to adapt quickly when facing momentous environmental changes.”

So you can now feel free to fume for five minutes if you can't find your favourite mug in the office – and then switch back to your lovely usual self.

Morning are the absolute worst, aren’t they? Here are some things that run through every girl’s mind when that dreaded alarm clock goes off:

1. “Snooze, where’s snooze? SNOOZE !”

Ten minutes of bliss. Followed by ten more.

2. “I suppose I should really get up now.”

Ugh…why?

3. “Why did I stay up so late last night?”

You vow to be in bed at 9pm sharp tonight. We all know it won’t happen.

4. “Is there a job out there that doesn’t involve getting up before half eleven?”

…And still finish at 5pm? Thought so.

5. “Is my hair too greasy not to wash?”

Because those extra five minutes could go so far right now…

6. “Will I get away without make-up today?”

Struggle on girfriend…

7. “Oh crap, I have no clean clothes.”

Pulling things out left, right and centre just to put an outfit together is simply soul destroying.

8. “Breakfast or near starvation until lunch?”

It’s the most important meal of the day – ALWAYS have breakfast, ladies!

9. “Please GOD, don’t say it’s raining outside today.”

As you pull on those not-so-waterproof pumps you pray the skies don’t open and leave you with shivering puddle feet all day long.
