Does Your Mood Change with the Seasons?

Not sure about you, but I think seasons have an effect on my mood. I have to work a lot harder when it is grey and dreary. I know, those are the colors of a Midwest winter.

We’re in the middle of winter right now . . . is that making you MISERABLE?

According to a new survey, 48% of people say their overall mood changes depending on the season.  39% say the season doesn’t have any effect on them, and the rest aren’t sure.



For what it’s worth, people who live in places with more EXTREME seasonal changes are more likely to be affected.  People in the Northeast and Midwest were much more likely to say seasons affect their mood than people in the South or West.
