I live near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which is not exactly known for its sunny weather! I find that when our weather is nice, my whole outlook on life is better. I eat healthier, I am more motivated to get exercise in, and my outlook in general is better. I have often wondered if I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), or if it is just general human nature to be happier when the sun shines.
I am finding that my strenuous yard work is my favorite form of exercise. Although I still have to force myself to clean inside my house, I am not as unhappy about doing it if I get to spend some time outside as well. Since there does not seem to be any shortage of work to do outside, I guess I will just have to try to find a healthy balance between chores that I enjoy and chores that I don't. One more way that Spark People has contributed to learning more about what makes me tick, and finding balance in my life!
