The transformation was immense.
The children’s play area was buzzing with kids…the pond area with an island in the middle and ducks flapping away was majestic.
The surround trees and forest looked amazing. It was great living the moment and taking in the atmosphere.
Normally, we go on holiday to other countries, and when we see landmarks like that we’re like “WOW, this country is amazing, look how good this simple park is over here.”
In that sense, yes, the weather plays such an important role in dictating mood..and the sun has a lot of power in that regard.
Consistent warm weather also changes the life-style and culture of a place.
In weather like this, you want to go out and stay out. Evening meals outside, rather than inside, on balconies, on grass, anywhere outdoors.
But when it normally rains, most restaurants and take-aways, naturally, don’t accommodate for this.
With consistent weather, you can also start different business, and activities that involve being outside. It’s probably why Dubai is so highly rated (over-rated for me).
Imagine finishing work, and sitting outside for an evening meal or drink in the setting sun, as opposed to running for the train to get home, as per my last article.
Great weather also naturally causes people to go out more. That means more walking, more cycling, more physical activity. This creates a healthier life-style, a fitter body.
That in turn reduces stress and anxiety.
