The Weather Vs. Mood


It’s a strange thing – I’ve always felt like the weather controls my mood way to easily. I come from a sunny country and have always been a somewhat happy person that enjoyed their day on the beach and walking outside with friends.

However, as soon as I moved to a country that has a lot less sun on a daily basis (and especially during the winter), I suddenly started feeling my mood was changing every day, and that every day it was either happy if it was sunny, moody if it was cloudy, or sad/pensive if it was rainy.

Supplements really helped at first (Vitamin D), but I feel like over time my mood was just as influenced by the weather as before.

Do you have this too? Is it the same or the opposite? (I have met people who are less happy when the sun is out.)

I’m curious, let me know below!

  1. In New England towards the end of a long winter, some people start getting down. They become sad, depressed. It’s very real. 😘

      1. Yes but an interesting point. In Oregon, where it rains a tremendous amount, the people around me never let the dark dreary rain ☔️ get them down, they just grabbed their raincoats and went about their business. 🤔

        Weird! Maybe it’s more the gloomy weather, still a bit of a mystery to me 😛

    I’m the odd one here!
    I don’t necessarily like rain, but cloudy, gloomy, windy weather makes me so happy!

    Sun and heat make me sweaty and annoyed. Also the sunlight gives me my a strange orange color. Not to mention the ants marching into my kitchen floor. UGH.

    Nevertheless, I am sorry that you feel this sad!

    I don’t really find the weather affects my mood, but I’ve lived in a gloomy place all my life!
