I think it's true. People who live in hot countries have more sunny days. It has a huge impact on well-being. If in my country it's sunny weather I have more energy I'm happier. But if it's cold, it's raining then I feel depressed. So I think, that people feel the same as me.

I think people in hot conuntries are happier because people need sun , life-giving star. It' true citizens of Sweaden or Dennmark are more depressed. They don't have energy . For me one of the most important thing in life is fresh air and sunny weather so I am very happy that i live in Poland :d

I think people aren't happier in hot country. For example I very like snow at winter and colours of trees in autumn. I think many people in Africa, which temparatures are always above 20-25 centy grades, aren't happier because of that.

It's much easier to relax in a climate with a comfortable temperature!

So, i think people who lives in hot countries are definitely happier. Why? Cause there is always high temperaure, it's great! I hate snow and everything related with winter, so- I'm sure, people like me- are happier;)

Indeed!
You can say that again. I agree with you completely - I also love snow and everything related with winter. It's great when snow crunches under your felt boots when you're walking down the street with a tin of beer in your hand. One thing you have to worry about, that your moustache didn't get covered with the solid crust of ice.
Another problem is: there are too much bears on streets. They become too daring and obtrusive this time of year! However, it's not a big problem - many citizens tame wild bears and put them on ration as guards. As guards, bears are much more reliable than dogs. To tell the truth, I wouldn't keep a bear in the yard, for it can easily eat all that move within its reach, that is cats, little dogs and kids with their senile nannies.
Wow! Pretty nice beer!

Does happiness depend on weather condition?
I think that people are poorer in hot countries. Just look at the statistics: hot countries are mainly found in the Southern part of the globe, developping/poorer countries are mainly found in the southern part of the globe, so people living in hot countreis are poorer. Now, the question is "does poverty mean sadness or unhappiness?

I don't think so... because they have more outdoor activities so more time to chat, gossip and quarrel over small matters. And just ending up unproductive and divided and so more problems enter the picture.

The ironic part is, people in colder countries complain about their weather. People in warmer countries would complain about their weather. Do you think switching places would make them happy?

I agree to you. However, I doubt if that happiness will last. People are known as grumbler.

Hi fleance. I don't exactly know what you mean. I know there are a lot of things that make us happy, like when we got the chance to eat our very favourite food. That makes us happy but if we eat the same food for a month of course we won't be as happy anymore. Another is wearing a beautiful clothes or say a signature outfit, of course it makes us happy and almost feel that we are dignified person but after sometime or wearing it often, the feeling wanes because we don't find it special anymore... so I think this is just natural. We feel this for ourselves... we feel this even if we are alone.
Our happiness will also depend on how mature we are and how we look at life per se. This type of happiness is of a higher level. If you are a family person your happiness will also involve your contributions to make each of you in the family successful... this is more on what the other members have achieved because of what you have contributed to make it happen. And also this happiness is in a way different, because you don't get it right away. It's a long term achievement and there is the ups and downs in life we have to face before we could feel this kind of happiness... and this I guess, is true wherever we are whether we are in hot or cold countries.
Now, my question is why do you look at the life of a grumbler in particular? I think this makes an individual too. There is a reason to this and if you happened to meet one try to know the main root or reason for behaving like that. Sometimes, if a person cannot find the right words to express oneself correctly they just grumble not because they are angry to another person maybe just angry to his or her ownself. Expressing our own thoughts correctly and accurately is another kind of happiness. :)

no, because that's human nature. Even this topic I think was created because the writer had noticed something unfavourable (for him) staying in cold country... :lol:

Just think of the benefits of having a cold country because there are some people out there who are dying to experience a cooler weather.

No they are definitely not happier. The wether is unbearable, average day temperature is 33-35C and combine that with High humidtiy 50-100% makes you tired while you just walking. Anybody that say people happier in hot countries should try to live in Indonesia

I leave in cold country. Russia is really cold country sometimes, and I think that bad weather can make you a little unhappy. When you don't receive enough sun it's really hurt your emotion state, and even health state!

I think, there's truth to that especially if you are an active person. There are only a few in door activities.

I disagree with the assumption that people are happier in warmer nations

Postby hellofriend » Mon Nov 13, 2017 7:37 pm

I believe that is not true. For me I can still happy when is cold. For that, maybe people do not like the weather is cold, they are more like worm, they can wear nice shirt or whatever. But there has lot of people live in the cold weather city, which not means they are not happy all the time. Their live style maybe more batter that us. If you said people are more happy about the weather is sunny, I agree with that people will feel not happy if is raining outside. When the weather get cold and dark, people will have a physical reaction, that cause people feel not happy. So, in the end i disagree with that people live in cold countries seem more miserable than people live in hot climates.
