Aloha Friday

Photobucket
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, and I decided to join her. ( even though I already did a post below)
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends! You should start with Kailani

My Question:

Do you suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or a lack of sun?


Absolutely, I do, when the sun doesn't shine for days on end, I just feel like hibernating. If it is cold, but the sun is shining somehow it is so much better.

I ABSOLUTELY suffer from SAD. If there's a lot of snow outside, I'm ok though because it's really bright. That helps compensate for the gray skies. But rainy days...I'm a mess.

I suffer from SAD every year.

I have to get out every day in the morning in the winter to get sunlight or I feel awful.

Sage and Savvy said...

No. Fortunately we have sun pretty much all year round!

Leene said...

I don't think I really suffer from SAD because I've not gone more then a few days without the sun. My hubby was stationed in Alaska before we met and told me he'd go days sometimes weeks without seeing the sun, I'd suffer from SAD for sure.

Alicia said...

I honestly have no idea, but it sounds terrible!

Lori said...

well since I live in Florida it isn't as much of an issue. winter is the time we get out of the house the most

Kari said...

That does not affect me at all. Honestly, I much prefer cool, cloudy days (my husband says I'm wired backwards, LOL). I've always been a huge night person and sunny days give me headaches. I'm weird, you can say it;o))

Lisa C. said...

Me and Kari can share a cave... I don't miss the sun... I actually prefer cloudy rainy days... lol..

Debbie said...

I do to a small degree but my husband has it BAD. If they predict a rainy weekend, I know he will be sad the whole time.

Debbie said...

BTW, your word verification just made me type in "tramp". Are you trying to tell me something?

TheAngelForever said...

I was just talking to my SIL about this the other day. I told her that I really think that SAD has hit me the last few years. While being a SAHM I am less motivated to move out of the house and get upset about it, but come spring I am out and about.

Tim and Vicky said...

I with you . . . show me the sun!

Jenni Jiggety said...

I do. It is awful!

Jen said...

I think I have some form of this especially when it's been gray for several days in a row. I like the sun and the warmth on my face. Bring spring!

ASHLEY said...

YES, I SUFFER. WE JUST HAD TEN STRAIGT DAYS OF CLOUD,GLOOM AND RAIN. FINALLY THE SUN IS SHINING, BUT CALLING FOR 70% CHANCE OF RAIN FOR TOMORROW. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

Vicki said...

It's usually sunny here, even when it rains the day can be sunny too! But on the days when it is gloomy, I don't mind much. You have to take the bad to get the good!

HeatherY said...

When I used to live in New Hampshire, I had a much tougher time with the shorter days and lack sun. Living in Georgia now, I don't have any issues as it is pretty sunny here in the winter.

Diane said...

I'm more gloomy when its a rainy day than during the winter. On a rainy day all I wanna do is sleep!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Upstatemomof3 said...

Oh absolutely! When it is cold with no sun I just want to stay in doors. Preferably curled up with a good book under a nice warm blanket. :)

Tara said...

No I dont.. but I have family members who do!! I love overcast!! lol

Kailani said...

I think because I'm so used to the sun most of the time, I look forward to cloudy days.

Heatherlyn said...

I don't think so. But I do think that getting sunlight is healthy for the body. I get sad randomly; it depends on my hormones. I wish that standing in the sun was a cure to make hormones perfectly balance!

Tiffany said...

I am in SO Cal, so we've got plenty of sun. But, the winter/Spring I spent in CO had me depressed enough to move!

the blogger said...

I do a bit. I don't mind the cold as long as the sky is blue, but I get affected with gray and rain.

sheila said...

Yes, it hits me right around Feb-March. Yuck. I live by my front picture window in those months, ha ha ha.

diana said...

i don't think so but i wouldn't really know because i get enough sunshine. colorado gets more sunshine than most any other state - even during the winter months.

Bebe said...

I've often thought I might have SAD. I used to sit on our back deck, wrapped in a quilt, in 40*F weather just to see if the sunlight would help. Maybe it helped, but the frozen fingers were an unhappy side effect. I think this year I'll just plan a trip somewhere warm instead!
