Winter's creepy powers on human mind...... what is winter doing to your mind?

:iconunknownsingularity:
UnknownSingularity Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Here in Canada winters are long and cold, and this has a clear effect on human mind. During winter the number of suicides increase :dead:

There is a name for the evils caused by winter on the mind, is it called "SAD" short for Seasonal Affective Disorder :nod:

However, I believe winter affects people in different ways. In my case, I don't feel sad, winter makes me lazy :( yes, It gives me art block. I over sleep :aww: I feel like hibernating.

Another clear symptom on me, is that my sexual desires just disappear :omg: I don't feel like mating anymore :eyes: I am not in the mood :slow:

What about you? what is winter doing to your mind? :meditate:

Winter always makes me feel fairly low and unfocused, as well as very tired. Very annoying to say the least.

It's 7C/45F and rainy right now where I live...in Canada. This is shorts-wearing weather, actually. :)

'SAD' in theory should affect me year round; I rarely go outside during daylight hours, but as I'm super sensitive to ultraviolet light, my vitamin D levels don't drop. Nor do I get affected by cabin fever - I love solitude as it's great creative time. Winter seems to make me more active than the peak of summer - I feel restless in cold temperatures and super sluggish in hot.

I'm actually looking to gain a dozen pounds this winter, too. Been eating a ton more food (w/ extra helpings of creams, butters, fats) and still stuck at 126lbs. I need that extra weight to keep my stamina going through the day as my metabolism is just wonky. :(

I guess you live in BC, or somewhere near the east coast. Because the prairies and the north have been frozen for a few weeks now :bucktooth:

Yes, I do live elsewhere. I used to live in the prairies. All that snow, and wind...I do not regret moving. Not one bit.

Stay warm. :hug:

It makes me feel depressed, that's for sure. That and I sleep in later. Damn I wish I could hibernate.

It's disastrous on my mind and soul, the rain and dark clouds are somehow peaceful and depressing at the same time, my temper gets a little shorter, I have to rely on the 1930s oil furnace here, with a faulty thermostat that there are no replacements for to keep me warm, (I still prefer it over tippy, fire-hazard space heaters tho), there are precious few photo opportunities beyond toy cars and still life/diorama pics here, and I have to deal with roof and window leaks that the landlord refuses to fix. I thrive on sunshine, and honestly even snow isn't too bad if it's accompanied by cold clear skies like in some other parts of the US and the rest of the world.

I can't use sunlamps here because the wiring system calls for 130-volt or multi-voltage (120V/130V/220V) industrial lightbulbs and is ungrounded, and the floor is a very uneven plank floor that shelves and lamps are unstable on. so I take a Vitamin-D supplement and NeuroSUN nutritional drinks to help compensate.

Winter usually just makes me feel relaxed and serene, the exception being when I'm trying to walk home it it.

This last year, summer actually made me feel extremely depressed. It used to be my favorite season (which is probably why), and I hope this isn't the case again. My favorite weather, at the moment at least, is a silver sky and storming rain.

Winter is my favourite season, I definitely prefer it to the horrible hot weather in summer. Winter makes me tired and I procrastinate more where my drawings are concerned but other than that it's a very happy season to me.
