The idea that the weather and people’s moods are connected is quite old. Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?
I’m one of those people who’s mood is heavily affected by the weather… hmmm.. hang on a sec… I was going to say that when it’s cold and miserable outside, I just want to stay in bed and sleep… and when it’s hot and sunny I just want to stay in bed and sleep…
So, apart from that glaringly obvious observation of myself, I think that the weather does affect your mood, but some more than others.
Personally, when the weather is cold and shitty and raining and overcast and miserable, and I have to get up and go to work, all I want to do is just throw my hands up and say ‘Fuck this!’, and roll over and go back to sleep. Then, a few hours later when I do actually surface, I want to be able to lounge around in my flannel pj’s and catch up on my recorded tv shows or a couple of movies, or just spend the rest of the day gaming, or writing. But at the same time, I kinda just want to do that every day. *lol*
When it’s sunny, I want to be outside. When it’s beautiful and warm, I want to be outside feeling the sunshine on my face, and preferably down by the water frolicking around in the shallows like a gazelle, or swanning around in the waters like a dolphin. I love being by the water, moreso when it’s warm and sunny, it just makes me so happy. Although I do find that when it’s stinking hot, yes, part of me still wants to be doing something that involves water, be it the beach or a pool, but the other part of me just wants to sleep. I don’t know what it is, but the extreme heat just makes me feel so incredibly lethargic and want to sleep all day.
Does that happen to anybody else?
