During the last few days I was surprised to find out how dependant my mood is on the weather. On sunny days, I am all positive and happy. Even if things don’t come together, I don’t care. I smile and feel good anyway. On sunless days, it’s quite the opposite. Even if everything goes as planned, and there is no reason to worry, I feel worried. And depressed. I’ve heard about these phenomenon before, but I’ve never experienced it myself.
If you are interested in this matter and how it affects people, check the Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and Vitamin D pages over at Wikipedia.
On one hand, I’m not having it to those extremes just yet. On the other – I never paid any attention to weather changes. I must be getting older…

I’m definitely affected by weather, noticed long time ago. Lack of sun can lead to all kinds of weird thoughts.
That’s why Brits are addicted to alcohol ;)
Well, ads around this post provide for some interesting links :)
IMHO life just got emotionless. :-)) That’s why.
I don’t agree with that… The last few month were pretty emotional for me ;)
hey that reminds me of my stay in Seattle which is rumored to have the highest rate of suicide because the whether is perpetually cloudy and drizzling throughout the year. (see article)
Bangalore is bright and sunny almost throughout the year! But still people always manage to find other reaons to get into bad moods!
Hmm… maybe these good or bad moods just happen randomly… but we find some logical reasons justify them! :mrgreen:
Random.. random.. nothing is random.. Or is it? :)

So, what happenned on the rainy days? Diet? :)
I like rainy weather. Probably for I am from Moscow. In Cyprus, quite opposite, I can’t stand too much sun. And I feel very comfortable under the rain. Especially if you in a warm house :)
Oh well, the rain I like too. More than summer heat. But the heat is also OK. It’s that Golden mean weather take sets me off mostly – grey skies and wind, but no rain, and no sun.
