As for me, yes it really does! Whenever its dark and gloomy out, i feel depressed and sad. But when it is sunny and nice out, i feel like i have alot of energy and i feel determined. Does the weather affect your mood? How?

It absolutely does for me. In the winter when it's cold or rainy I tend to stay home and become a hermit. But now that it's getting nice out I've been getting out almost everyday. I love to go to the park and let my daughter run around.

It all depends what is going on in my life as to how it affects my mood. I stay stressed out and depressed alot as it is. The weather does have an affect on how stressed or depressed I allow myself to be though. I tend to feel less stressed on sunny days but I get stressed some of those days because I have alot of housework, yardwork and work to do online on those days also. It definitely does affect my mood overall though.

yes it does! when it's hot most of the time my head is hot too... i don't have a long patience during this weather. also, when it's hot i get easily annoyed on almost everything! when it's cold but not raining, i'm happy! sometimes i'm hyper! but when it's raining, i feel lonely because during these days i'm at home and i can't go out (because i don't want to get wet). i feel sleepy too during raindy days! :)
