Winter is bad for your health, appearance and your sex life, according to a new poll of 2,000 adults, many of whom said the cold and dark winter months result in an increase in illness, a lower mood and an overall lack of motivation. One in 20 of the survey’s respondents said their sex life suffered in the winter. Others said they had less energy, struggled to wake up and had sore and achy joints and muscles. Many added they were more likely to eat unhealthy or sugary foods than in the summer months.
Dr. Meg Arroll, a psychologist for well-being brand Healthspan, which commissioned the research says many of us feel down in the dumps when the weather turns colder and days get shorter, which may partly be due to less daylight and being out and about in the wind and rain.
