It's snowing one day, and the next morning you look out the window to see girls wearing tank-tops and guys walking around shirtless. Some states hold the same temperature for months on end — it's a rarity for it to dramatically drop or rise like it does other places. When it holds steady, you know exactly what to expect.

For other people who live in the states — where you never know how the weather is going to turn out — it's a roller coaster. As someone who currently lives in Illinois, I know exactly what that's like. You might have to go out and head to class or work, and you're all bundled up and it feels like the cold will never end. That weather starts to bring you down because you know it's going warm up eventually, but it's just not there yet. The days continue to drag on as you wait inside, watching out the window.

But the moment the weather finally warms up and you see the sun shining, the stress of the cold or rainy weather finally breaks down — you feel the weight lift. Even if it just is one day followed by a day just as terrible as the last, you still have that warm air to drive with the windows down and walk around in your favorite cute shorts with a short-sleeved shirt. Everyone is out, enjoying the comfortable temperature. After all, it is proven that the warmer weather does lift your spirits. This way you're not stuck in your house because it's too cold to go out.

When it's warm out, take advantage of it by doing things such as going on a walk, swimming if you have a pool, walking your dog (or cat), or starting up your garden. There are endless things to do when the weather is reasonable enough to do them. Trust me, appreciate the warmth and make an effort! Who knows when the next night day will come around?

Recapping what I said — back to what the best thing about abnormal weather is — you don't expect it. One day you're freezing and trying to get to the next class, or walking from your car to the store or to your house. Then, you're actually taking your time to enjoy being outside instead of rushing to get away from it. It's uplifting and hopeful when you walk outside, not getting hit by a gust of chilly wind.

It's good for your mental health because it's not freezing or burning day after day. You finally get to see the horizon when it comes to spring or fall. So, you know what you have to do? Go out on that nice sunny day! You may not have another chance in weeks. Let's be real, I'm currently writing this outside because it feels much better than the last few weeks we've had!
