How does weather impact our mood? Do hot temperatures make us aggressive or does the rain make us sad?

What about cold temperatures , do they make us feel more wanting to isolate ourselves and stay inside?

What is your weather personality type ?

Are you a :
Summer Lover: happier less fearful, less angry on days with sunshine and high temperatures
Summer Hater:  less happy and more angry when temperatures are higher.
Rain Hater:  angrier and less happy on days with rain.

Sunlight triggers the release of hormones in our brain called serotonin.

Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping us feel calm and more focused.

This can be an effective part of treatment for low mood and depression.

The better weather can impact our mental and physical health increasing Vitamin D , making us have better quality sleep and lower blood pressure.

Let’s hope that April brings in some sunlight to shine on everyone.
