Relating to an individual’s emotions, the mood is an internalised and generalised state of how someone feels. There is a never-ending list of emotions you can feel during a period. Sometimes you might be unreasonably happy, excited or jolly, whereas at other times, you might be deeply saddened, depressed, and vulnerable.

However, there are some significant moods that we somehow face and address in our lifetime. These moods are sad, frustrated, silly, lovely, guilty, happy, calm, excited, angry, destructive, annoyed, and so on.
