The weather has been so changeable lately. The Beast from the East brought us snow and ice just a few weeks ago. Last Sunday was 24 degrees and sunny, tomorrow it’s forecast to be 7 degrees and rain all day. Despite these drastic changes however, we as people don’t fundamentally change who we are. Our behaviours do change though. When it cold and wet, we wrap up warm, stay inside more, possibly sleep more, or eat more comfort food (well that’s what I do anyway!). When it’s warm and sunny most people do tend to go out without a coat, they may smile more and eat healthier.
When we feel down or anxious, we tend to act like it’s winter even when the sun is out.
Our moods are as changeable as the weather. If someone was to do something we didn’t like, we can all go from feeling relatively happy, to experiencing anger in an instant. If we were flicking through Facebook or Instagram and came across a picture of puppies, we could be suddenly filled with joy.
