A variety of factors influence your mental health including weather. While you can’t control the weather, you can learn about how weather and climate might affect you. You can also gain knowledge on how to cope with its negative effects on your mental well-being.
Oddly enough, the weather doesn't usually seem to affect my mental health all that much. I've been hypomanic on snowy winter days and depressed on bright and sunny ones. Some of my most intense hypomanic episodes happened in fall and winter, but also in spring and summer. I just can't see a pattern even though I've read that most people with bipolar are affected by the weather.
And I love rainy days. They make me feel calm and relaxed. Sunny days are nice, but more likely to be hot, which I dislike.
I am a hot weather girl. Not warm, hot lol Living in Michigan, it doesn't stay warm for very long. I dream of moving somewhere where it's at least mild year round. But all my family is here. I do get SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) in the winter. Ironically, some can get the opposite version in the summer. What helps me is to just go with it. Don't be hard on yourself.

I always feel moody when it is rainy season. I don't like the sound and I am always trying to avoid certain places when it is such time. However, it is different with dry season as I sometimes feel happier when it is the season and the sun is shining.
