Mood changes with the wind

Mood changes with the wind

06 May 2023 by Ted Escobedo   1 min read

Much like seasonal depression, high winds can have a lasting impact on your mood. During windy weather, air becomes laden with positively charged ions, which is not a plus, as they can adversely affect our mental and emotional well-being. When there are loads of positively charged ions blowing around in the air, they have a physiological effect on certain populations. Children, the elderly, the sick and those under pressure or stress are particularly affected. Some research shows that positively charged ions can cause erratic and poor behavior, particularly in children. Much of the early research on this subject was conducted in Israel, where the wind has a marked effect. It has been reported that 30 percent of the population becomes ill with migraine, nausea, vomiting, irritability, dimness of vision, respiratory symptoms and other effects.
