Did you know that the weather can have an impact on your mood and your overall well-being?
As seasons change, some people wake up with allergy symptoms that make them sneeze and lead to cranky behavior throughout the day. And even individuals without seasonal allergies can notice shifts in their emotions when the weather changes. Cold temperatures can make individuals lethargic and sunlight can improve attitudes, and those shifts are in addition to the bodily responses that happen within allergy suffers.
Improve Your Mood
While it may feel like you have an allergy, the fact of the matter is that when the barometric pressure drops, humidity suddenly increases, or the temperature drops unusually fast, these changes in the weather could trigger a migraine headache if you have a history of them.
Basically, whenever something affects your health and you don’t feel well, it’s understandable that it also impacts your mood. So how do you overcome feeling cranky and miserable and still present a happy and joyful attitude to the world?
While it is probably not logical or practical to think about moving to another city or state where you wouldn’t experience as many temperature changes, you do have control over your mindset. Not everyone climbs into bed and pulls the covers over their head when they have an “off” day. But, if you don’t feed the negative thoughts and ill feelings, you truly can turn your dark attitude into a bright mood.
You Can Improve Your Life
Admittedly, it takes practice to tell yourself that you feel can feel better and that you are going to have a good day. You really have three choices about handling how the weather affects your mood. While some choose to complain about it, others attempt to self-talk themselves into a better mood. Both of these typically do not have lasting results because they are often done repeatedly without healing any true issues. But seeking support and transforming your thinking can lead to lasting improvements in your mood.
Through personal consuling sessions, you will learn techniques that you can utilize to transform your thinking. Of course, if you have a serious health condition, and your intuition tells you it is more than a bad mood you are dealing with, you’ll want to consult with a health care professional.
How urgent is the situation? Just as sports figures have personal coaches that help them through bad times and celebrate with them during the good times, individuals who are working, retired, or caregivers can benefit from personal support. You might discover how much better you feel when you can confide confidentially with a professional who understands your concerns. Read more about my experience as a counselor and life coach.
