I was wondering, does the climate/weather influence/change/affect your mood? I know that when it is cloudy, those gray clouds all over I feel sleepy and grumpy that can go for rain too, but when it is sunny and cool I get in a much happier disposition. I find the weather can truly affect our state of mind be it to better or worse. What about you?

raindrop - it is raining!
I am not sure if there is a scientific study that proves that somehow the weather affects the mood of a person. But personally there are times that I feel that I am affected. Like if it is too hot I don't want to do something I just want to lay and rest. Or if it is raining I don't want to go outside. Also there's this weird thing about me that I like to sing whenever it is raining.

I don't know if there is any treatment for it, maybe hypnosis or a shrink, but I'm not sure!

My country is hot and humid almost the whole year round. Except for the Christmas season, the air seems a little cooler. I get used to the weather here. I always find myself having those "mood" when the weather is really hot. I'm cheerful and always on the go when its not that hot. :)

If the climate is too cold, specially if its raining, I feel so lazy and I just want to sleep sleep sleep all day. If its sunny but not that hot, I'm more alive and active. But if its very hot, I get quite irritated.

Definitely. We have far too many cloudy days here and it can be really depressing. A warm sunny day just makes me happier and makes me want to go out and be active. That's why I'm hoping to move soon.

I think that's true. Weather definitely affects me. Especially if it changes quickly I can tell. My fibro gets bad and the arthritis lets me know something is up. I don't mind the rain so much but drastic changes in barometric pressure is what gets to me. Freezing temps and extreme heat get to me also, can't handle either very well. Either will put me in a bad mood. I'm like the Princess and the Pea when it comes to being uncomfortable! LOL
