Do changes in the weather, or season affect your health?
Often people find that changes in the season affect their health...sometimes it's mood, but there can also be physical reactions. Does anyone have experiences of this to share?
yes. I have seasonal affective disorder and have a horrible time with the short days in January and February. December doesn't bother me, because there are Christmas lights everywhere.
I always feel "blah" when the weather turns cold. It doesn't have a good affect on my mood when the sun isn't shining! Sometimes I just feel like curling up with a good book and a blanket. As for my health, I notice a difference in my hair and skin, especially when the heating goes on and the air is drier. My hair sometimes feels more brittle, and my skin needs a lot more moisturizer.
winter blues - most people feel down in winter, and so do I. i think i'm more energetic in the sun, and can get a lot more done.
If the weather is damp some people with arthritis tend to feel more pain. My partner has it in his knee and knows when rain is in the air. For me, sunshine makes me feel better - must be the vitamin D.
Absolutely. I agree with FloraBeenRobison on SAD. Also, others made good points. Here is something that affects me. I live in Escondido CA, 15 miles from the coast. It is generally 10+ degrees hotter and drier. But, fall & spring coastal air moves in during the evening staying until mid-morning and my sinuses go crazy then accompanied with headaches.
When winter comes I like it, except for the darkness. It isn't the weather change that is difficult it is the lack of sunlight. My circadian rhythm goes bonkers. I dislike time changes because of this.
I don't have SAD, but the seasons do affect my beverage preferences (among other things). During the Fall and Winter, I feel better if I drink some black tea with breakfast. In May, my big local hay fever month, I feel better drinking green tea.
Oh yeah. When the weather suddenly turns cold, my asthma kicks in really badly. I end up coughing a lot and messing up my vocal cords. I spend a lot of the winter as a mute.
Cold weather makes my skin dry. I freeze all the time during winter if I don't have at least three layers of clothes on me. I wear wool socks from August to June - even when I sleep. What can I say? I love summer!
Not usually. Unless you have an underlying illness. It is a fallacy that cold weather can give you a cold or the flue. But as others have pointed out seasonal depression is real.
Sudden changes in weather - like when it's extremely hot and humid in the morning and then it starts raining in the afternoon - used to make me catch a cold. And it happened every single time so it wasn't coincedence. It has something to do with your immune system and your ability to withstand physical changes. The thing that helped me with this is taking alternate hot and cold showers. When you're showering everyday, expose your neck (or your whole body) to warm water for 3 mins followed by cold water for 3 mins. Do these steps for about 3 to 4 times. After about a week, you should see that your resistence to weather changes should be up considerably!
Yes it does especially the winter which makes the body more prone to sickness. Visit http://bestmedicalcoding.com/medical-coding-salary/ for more info.
