La influencia del clima en nuestro estado de ánimo: el Trastorno Afectivo Estacional

Written by: Dr. Antonio Rodrigo Parra

There is a general tendency that, when the day dawns cloudy, people wake up in a bad mood, and when it is sunny, they start it very happy.

The experts in Psychology establish that our mood depends on factors such as work, family, responsibilities, and also the climate. The latter takes quite a leading role in this aspect because it directly affects the plans that people have organized during the day.

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a depression characterized by sudden mood swings that coincide with periods of absence of sunlight


On rainy days, people's lives are centered inside their homes, avoiding any plan that requires going out on the street. However, when the weather is good, the opposite occurs: you want to go out and interact with the environment. In conclusion, when the temperature is good, people are more pleasant and receptive, smile more. But, when the weather is bad, they are irritable .


The sun and the good temperatures diminish the anxiety and increase the positive thinking of the people. Also, humid climates hinder concentration and cause people to stress and fatigue. This is directly related to Vitamin D. The sun gives us this vitamin, which directly affects the body's hormonal system. Even so, this varies from one person to another, since not everyone is equally vulnerable to climate.


This has been diagnosed for a few years as Seasonal Affective Disorder: a depression characterized by sudden mood swings that coincide with periods of absence of sunlight.


The mood depends on many variables, and we must avoid that time is one of them. From Psicosalud Almería help you go out to look for the sun. To bad weather, good face!
