Does a bright sunny day make you feel better than a dark cloudy day? Do you spend time out in the sunshine?

I never really spend time *out* in the sunshine. I try to spend time underneath the shade but getting a lot of light at the same time.

I also love dark, cloudy days, too!

Sunshine lifts my mood but I spend little time in it as I burn so easily.

I'm especially sensitive to weather, so it really depends on my mood. Sometimes too much sun makes me feel overstimulated, but overall it does make me feel good. I woke up this morning to a beautiful sunny day, but all the activity I heard outside--garbage trucks namely--dampened my spirits. I love to be out in the sun when the air is crisp and fresh and I'm away from "town" or neighborhood noises like lawn mowers and leaf blowers.

I don't mind dark, cloudy days in the winter but hate them in the spring and summer. As an introvert, I need lots of down time, and winter is the best time for me to "hibernate". Dark, cloudy days allow me to do that. There's nothing better to me than staying in and baking or watching a good movie with a cup of tea or hot chocolate while snuggled under a warm blanket.

Oh yes! I love bright sunny days... gloomy days like today make me feel cold, tired and just weighted down.

I don't spend a lot of time in the sun, but I do try to get out there when I can.

I love bright sunny days. I feel better and am more likely to out and do things.

Those who think only sunshine can bring happiness, have never danced in the rain.

Sure sunshine is wonderful and I love every single minute I can get in it. But I also strongly believe in making the best out of every situation....including the weather! Last night it was snowing so beautifully so I got all dressed up in my warm running gear and went for a 2 mile jog! It was WONDERFUL!

Oh I despise being cold. I'd rather sweat than be cold.
