Yes, The Change In Season Affects My Mood

My feelings correlated with each season.

Do you have different emotions and associations with each season? I think most of us do. Besides the obvious holidays and change in climate, something about the annual cycle always brings me the same feelings as a new season approaches.

1. Winter: indoors and family

During the winter, it is just plain cold. I came to a college 10 minutes away from the beach because this is not my cup of tea. Being the outdoorsy type, I find myself longing for something more.

During this season, I find myself more stressed out and even going out at night more for entertainment. Winter is also the cuddle season. I feel that more people begin relationships in the winter because it is a time of cuddling up, watching Netflix, and going out to indoor restaurants. The other side of Winter, in which I look forward to, is the Holidays.

In college, this time has become increasingly valuable in that I get to come home and have a special appreciation for the people who are most important to me. After the holidays, however, I am ready to say goodbye to winter.

2. Spring: excitement and anticipation

As Spring rolls around the corner, things start to ramp up. The sun comes out, trees regain their color, and everyone starts to come alive. This time of year is full of anticipation as spring comes with exciting events such as carnivals, proms, and going to the beach when it isn't quite warm enough. This season is very busy and often difficult to remain focused on school while awaiting the summer ahead.

3. Summer: wild, fun, and full of stories

Summer is the time to just experience. During the summer I am always having a blast whether it be with my friends or going to the beach with the fam bam. Most of my time is spent outside and many memories are made. However, towards the end of the summer, I tend to get tired of the lack of structure and am ready for the fun to settle down.

4. Fall: comforting

During the fall (my favorite season), it is time to go back to school. I always enjoy this time because I get to see all my friends from school and build a new year for myself. The air is warm, yet cool. Trees become stunningly beautiful with their array of colors, and you begin to find comfort in getting back on a schedule.

When I think of fall, I think of football games, Halloween, bonfires, and relaxation after a long, fun summer. This is a time of contemplation of your past year along with ideas about how to make your next school year a great one.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
