I think that is partly true as once when I was in England for a prolonged holiday, and it was cloudy every day, I felt it affected my mood.
Every morning to go outside and rarely see any sun was slightly depressing!
I love summer, and I think I often feel brighter when it is a nice, bright sunny day.
I feel so much happier when the sun is out. I feel like the possibilities for the day are endless, like there are hundreds of things I could do. I have more energy and I am excited to start the day. When it is cloudy or cold and wet, I don't feel like going out at all. I just want to stay inside.
I am cheerful just about ALL of the time!! Living in the tropics,I actually do not mind a bit of cloud about,as it is a real novelty at the moment!!!We have had the hottest driest year since records began,and it can truly be very draining!! And though I feel drained,I am still happy enough!!
If overcast, & rainy weather persists for a couple of weeks, I get very frustrated, & totally p'd off as cannot dry bedclothes on outside line!
Nothing like the Sun, & wind, to give a beautiful smell to them!
Many years' ago, we had to go to London for my husband to work there, for a week, no biggie, as we'd just spent a month in Eastern USA & Canada, so flew LAX-LHR.
Anyway, the weather was the most beautiful, with blue skies' & temperatures to die for! It was their Autumn, & it reminded me of our early Spring weather.
Whilst he worked, I took day trips, hither, thither, & yon, & had a great time! Hubby walked me to Tour Bus Stop, & was there to collect me upon return.
All worked in beautifully! Oh, & he enjoyed his work!
It is the lack of energy most of all. The foggy spectacles don't help either, nor the runny makeup. Melbourne hasn't always been a very humid city, but the last few years have been very, very different. With or without air conditioning, not a lot helps on a humid day.
Yes. I generally feel happier on a sunny day, mostly because my son and I can play outside. This rain is driving us stir crazy. And I bet we won't be able to go out tomorrow because the ground will be too wet. :|
