The reason as for as I undaunted is that it depends upon person to person and his attitudes. Those who are very anxious and doubtful about their day and their wok ahead feel bad mood in the morning and those who have perfectionism or having ego. Many feel bad in the evening, thinking their poor performance in the day that has gone. This becomes so automatic, that you may not be aware of a single thought and its expanded version before you loose your mood. Nevertheless, each mood swing must accompany a thought, a negative thought its’ implication out of our imagination, like anger or helplessness to correct the situation and on and on. Such behavior ultimately leads to bed mood in minutes.

“What will happen if I fail?” “I could be fired” and you visualize yourself being fired & searching for another job. This whole process completes within thirty seconds and rest of the morning is lost in bad mood. This further multiply your problem, making you less confident.
For those feeling bad in evening, it could be analysis of their work. “To day I made a silly mistake in my work. How can I do this? What my boss will think abut my ability to do work and doom, bad moods.
Imagine a strong magnet and a small ball of iron, trying to pass by it without being attracted and associated with it. It is not possible. Your mind has first decided to let you down, it them try to search for the reason, which it founds in seconds. Everyday you could have separate and very small causes to feel bad on specific time.
