I think the weather doesn't affect your behavior much so wherever you are if you are an active, energetic and flexible person you are always in good mood.

Weather affects mood and memory. On a sunny day, everything looks hopefully. The bright sun lit up the meadow. The azure sky make you are in a good mood. Sunny day is the opposite of rain. Rainy day and overcast always make people feel upset easily. Generally speaking, most people of hot countries are optimistic. Although the weather was lazy, the people seem happy. So, I think the most people are happier in hot countries.

Do you like summer? In hot countries, every day is summer. The weather affects our mood and memory. First, everything looks hopeful on a sunny day. When the sun shine is bright and warm, we look at the azure sky and the bright sun lights up the meadow. It makes us in a good mood. On the other hand, rainy day and overcast always make people upset easily. Then, we can discover that the most people living in hot countries are optimistic. In brief, people are happy because they have a good mood. So, I believe that people live in hot countries are happier.

sure the temprature has a lot to do with people's mood, as for my small town people never go to see each other most of the summer when tempratures exceed 45C meaning they are less happy. where as others would not go out on winters depending on each country and it's weather. the least thing you hate about hot weather is sweating all day long which we experience half of the year

:geek: well, I dont think so

I am from a hot country, and there are lots of ppl who feel sad

Actually, it is a nature of human kind to feel a mixture of happiness and sadness

I wont like my life if it is always happy or always sad, it seems as there is nothing to stive to get,no goal, no motives.

Regarding cold climate, may be becoze they miss the sun :lol:

while in hot countries sun always shine, heh I notice ppl in England feel very happy when

summer comes :-o

Well, I think the happiness doesn't depend on the country or the climate, but depends on the surrounding environment.

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:

I am sure weather and climate has affect on peoples mood however I disagree that hot or cold weather can be a reason for happiness or the change of ones nature.

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
