Lately I seem to be very tuned in to the weather. Not like I can predict it or anything, but my mood is really dependent on conditions outside. Sunday was gorgeous – amazingly perfect. But yesterday was a little chilly and today, cloudy skies. Rain. Too cold to have the door open.

Consequently, I feel distinctly “meh.” At first I thought it was just this lingering cold, but then I noticed that I felt great on sunny days. And not great on overcast days. Today I’ve been thinking of all the things I could do, if only I had the energy and motivation. In fact, I’ve thought of a long list of things I could have done with my life by now if not for laziness and a lack of ambition. So, it hasn’t been a very cheerful day for me.

A major problem with these days, aside from their unproductive nature, is that what cheers me up is spending money and eating dessert. I think I need a new cure!

    Amen. I need the sun to shine. NOW.

  2. Have you tried a lightbox? It makes a big difference for my mom – she reads a book in front of her lightbox for a half hour or so in the mornings, and it really charges her up.

    I’ve never tried a lightbox – but I did manage to get a very, very short nap yesterday and I felt different when I woke up. And better.

Be opinionated! We certainly are.
