AFFECTS OF WEATHER CONDITIONS ON OUR MOOD

Weather has big effects on our mood. Some people don’t think so, but even the temperature is proven to affect mood. For example, exposing skin to sunlight produces vitamin D, which lifts mood. However, humidity tends to make people more tired and irritable. The hotter the weather, the more aggressively people are likely to act. Heat also makes it more likely for the people to be verbal aggressive while a decrease in temperature leads to depression and low moods.   

Seasonal affective disorder is a type of depression that is related to changes in climate and seasons. SAD begins at about the same time in every year. Spring and summer weathers affect some people with SAD negatively while some of them are affected by fall and winter weathers more. It shows symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, weight gain/loss, and low energy.

As a result, temperature, weather, and climate affect our mood more than most people know. The effects can either be positive or negative.
