Ah, the changing of the seasons! I can feel it… can you? As they like to say, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. No matter what part of the world you live in, you’re probably undergoing (or about to undergo) an amazing change in weather. For most of us, that means the transition from winter to spring. And for those of you who are lucky enough down under, you’re experiencing the change to fall – my absolute favorite season.
I have a lot of things I believe or intuit about psychology, but one of my favorites is the idea that the type of season you prefer says a lot about you. I am one of those cozy up in a blanket, go see the latest arty movies, fall types. I love summer, but I’m never going to be a summer personality.
I tried to do some research on psychology and season preference, but I came up dry. The closest I could find was research of the impact of weather on human emotions. Close enough 🙂 During dreary and dark times, like winter, our serotonin falls – leading us to feel more lethargic or gloomy. No wonder we all fee like hibernating during the winter. During rainy times – like spring or fall in many areas – we also may feel a bit more sedate. Some of us may even be a bit of pain from rain. And when it’s sunny (yup, I saved the best for last!), we feel happier and healthier. I guess that’s why it’s a bit contrarian to be like me (and many of us) and prefer a season other than summer!
