Does the weather affect your mood/motivation?

I find that I'm much more motivated and productive on sunny days.  Dreary days like today are a wash.  I really dislike winter.  =(

I really dislike winter also and dreary days can make me very crabby. I know even at school when the weather is changing or bad the kids moods are affected also. I much prefer sunny days I can get more done then, but I prefer warmer sunny days to coler sunny days.

Yes.  I hate to do anything on a cloudy day.

It's actually proven that the sun helps moods. That's why rainy days are generally 'glum' days. My doctor has recommended going tanning on crappy days, going for walks on sunny days when I didn't want to go on meds for depression before.

Oh good, glad it's not just me.  I hate feeling like I have to force myself to do much of anything on days like today.  Blah.

I am completely opposite from you. During the summer its between 80-110 degrees outside....once its above 75 out there I dont want to go out and do anything.

If its 40 degrees outside...I wanna go out and play :)

yes .. I hate the cold ... so on day that are freezing I just want to snuggle on the sofa with a blanket and let the day warm up before I do anything . On hot sunny days I'm a buzy of activity.

I don't like winter and don't get out as much.  It does effect my mood.
