Happiness is a state of mind. In the similar set of circumstances, people can be happy and unhappy at the same time. If our mind is trained to see hope and happiness, it will automatically target at being happy. {-:

I think there should be both kind of climate in your area. There should not be only cold or only hot. Intially I like cold weather. But after 5years, viral infection has started. If I listen to my doctor, I should not eat bananas, curd and all refrigerated items. I must avoid cocacola.. I used to cocacola. But , Now I don't have the option. If I drink a bottle of cola, I don't feel good after 3-4 hours. Runny nose, cough..
I can't enjoy the weather now..I want to go outside, but my wife always refuses me to go.She is right. If I get unwell, she is the person, who needs to suffer.


Now whenver I get time, I love to go to some hot place. Although it is hot outside, I can enjoy the weather. In hot climate, your health will be in good condition.All germs, viruses will die due to hot weather..

Actually it depends on you. So one can make his day happier without taking into consiredation the weather conditions, but not all people manage to do that.

In my opinion happynee doesnt depend on climate or a country.But weather may affect our mood and behaviour , in my country we have tow season in ayear(summer and winter).However variety is required and ahuman can adapt himselfe to live in everywhere. :lol: :lol:

Why do people who live in very cold countries seem more miserable than people who live in hot climates?


I am sure, if you just have one climate, it must be depressing. All the time you feel cold or all the time you feel hot {-: At least, it's better to live in two climates or four climates... :mrgreen:

I like cold weather but I live in Spain. This country is usually sunny days. I like raining and cloudy days!

there is no doubt that hot country dwellers are far happier than their counterpart in cold countries.Peoples who live in polar region do not see the sun regularly and this had a great impact on their mood and behavior.According to statistics carried out by psychology experts in New York university, climatic changes has great influence on every day lives.despite the fact that happiness are directly co-related with hot climates,we can not ignore the sense of annoyance that we may encounter with sunny days.

I read somewhere that hormones responsible for good mood is produced better when there are a lot of sunny days. So, I agree that people living in hot countries are more happy than people living in Ukraine (for example).

Yes, because the climate/weather has an effect on our mood. Since there are very few indoor activities that could keep us physically and mentally fit in the winter there is a tendency for us to be more depressed and feel so down and unhappy. Also, in cold countries, human (our) bodies still get a good supply of energy from the food we eat but we consumed less so, I think this imbalance affect our mood and make us feel so unhappy

it is proven that people are living in hot countries are happier, the light of sun makes people talkative , outgoing and sociable.
I live in Tehran the city which have four season , our winter are not so cold as in Russia or Finland.
But you can see people that have more fun in summer and do most of their journey in summer and spring .
Studies shows that Finish people and others who live in cold area of the world are more isolated and less happier than who live in hot location.
In south of our county the weather is hotter and more humid and southern people are known for being gregarious and outdoor.
It is obvious that when the weather is cold people like to be in home to not feeling the coldness.

one thing sure and true, it's difficult to talk or smile in the cold climate... it's as if my facial muscles are frozen too... and the elasticity of the skin on our faces change too. :-D

In my opinion, happiness can or can't be evaluated on such a weather condition, however, there are some people who actually live on a 'summer weather' places get used to it, and the results are obvious- they’re happy. I think the weather relation to happiness is a broad topic that can simplify in to a simple answer- it depends on what the person really like. That simple answer can also be divided in to many aspects that co-relates about definition of happiness. Some of the examples can be; birth place of the person, where person grew up, medical condition or the most common reason that I’ve heard- want some changes.

Furthermore, most of those people who’ll tell you that they more like it to live in hot places, where the ones who are used to live in a cold places, or not so hot outdoor community are have more liking in a place where they can do new things that can’t be done before. In the end, my answer response to this post, happiness can be evaluated depending on their reason.

Note: It’s my first time to post a response on this website. Please do understand my ‘bad’ English. I’m still on the process on improving my English literacy (especially on grammar).

That's completely incorrect! Being happy or not does not depend on where you live. It just depends on yourself!


i agree with you , since i live in a hot country and we have a lot of depressed people . and i have a friend who live in a very cold country in the most time of the year , and his country has the same issue .. so it depend on you to happy or not

I've been in many warm countries, and also in cold countries. People who live in hot climate seem happier than in cold countries. I think this is due to the fact that in a warmer climate is a lot of sun, which affects our mood

People who live in very cold countries seem more miresable than people who live in hot climates, because they have worse life conditions f.ex. someone who live in Antarctic firstly has to haunt sth to eat and trying to keep warm in different ways. Secondly should prepare incredible warm clothes, so he also has to haunt sth to use their natural skin. Thirdly he has to live in sofiety to keep alive. In my opinion above factors make this person miresable. To compare someone who lives in hot country can live alone and he does not have sew clothes. I know that , despite the fact they can live in drough areas , I agree with opinion they seem look better than people who live in cold climates.

I think that people who live in hot countries are more happy than people who must fight with cold or rainy weather. The weather is very important for our frame of mind and we know that when the weather is good, we feel better and we are ready for action.
