Does the weather influence your mood?

Good/bad weather can mean a good/bad food day for me. And exercise too.

However, I'm backwards. I LOVE the rain and gloom. Not so happy in hot sunny weather.

What about you?

Sunny and warm is what makes me most happy! And daylight! I hate this time of year because we keep the blinds closed to keep out the cold, but then I feel "closed in" and lacking in natural light.

We're going to Florida in a few weeks and that will get me my fix for a couple months until spring arrives.

I am happiest when there are clear warm days that are low in humidity. Ocean breezes or mountain breezes on a warm day are definitely my thing.
The gray days of mid winter with weeks on end of no sunshine, with early morning ice fogs, and the dusty muddy streets really try me. I used to not mind the winter time, as at work I had no windows in my classrooms and was 90% in the basement where they were. I went to school in the dark and home in the dark most of the winter. Now that I am retired my whole outlook on winter is different-MOVE TO HAWAII!

Short winter days make me want to hibernate. I spend most of the winter in a blue mood wanting to curl up on the couch with a blanket. I have been told I have seasonal depression.ss

Summers are much better. I like the hot weather, and I love when it stays daylight on up into the evening hours. Definately a much happier person when the days are longer.
