two hours of sun

It's official. The month of November has so far only offered 2 whole hours of sun in Stockholm. Two. Hours. Sun. And not even cohesively. Although in this case I'm not sure that would have been better or worse.

The lack of sun and natural vitamin D was an issue in October already. It's really really bad for the mood and the overall well-being. And given I'm eating vitamin D supplements and other stuff plus overall decent food I'd hate to know how it'd feel if I wasn't. Another depressing effect of climate change.

Two months ago the sun was still generous. Not to mention four glorious months ago... Everything feels better with a reasonable amount of sun. There's sadly only so much cat cuddles and good cups of teas can do for the overall mood when the body and soul scream for sun.

How do you survive reasonably intact during this time of the Scandinavian year? Or wherever you might live with similar dark, glum weather?

I am so sorry. And here I am avoiding the sun whenever possible. Some world-wide weather moderation would be nice.

Wow that isn't much sunlight at all. Our weather is just getting better now, so we have five months of ok warm weather and 7 months of grey, windy and wet weather to contend with.

I think if I lived in Sweden I would need to book some holidays to the Greek islands or spain a couple of times a year.
