Why are we obsessed with Summer?


Why are we obsessed with Summer? 

It’s a questions I’ve been asking myself these past few months and with the weather getting colder here in the UK – I keep thinking, why are we all so obsessed with summer?

Everyone now knows that here in the UK most of our conversations revolve around the weather, whether it’s cold and raining or sunny and ‘hot’ it somehow manages to work it’s way into the convo….

Why are we obsessed with Summer? – Is it the Sun?

Is it?

Is it purely the beautiful sunshine glaring at you from the blue skies or is it the feeling of sunshine on your skin?

Not only is this great for your body and bones (your body makes Vitamin D in the sun) but it also makes you feel happier and energetic – ready to face the day!

Think about it, when you go into stores on rainy days, most people tend to be miserable when they greet you however when it’s sunny outside, it’s a different story – think about that!

Why are we obsessed with Summer? Relaxation…

I put summer + holidays together which equals relaxation (for me)!

Even if I’m not by the beach, I still manage to relax more in the summer….even if it’s going for a little walk and grabbing an iced coffee from a local store – it makes things a lot better.

Why are we obsessed with Summer? Why?

So, why are we all so obsessed with Summer?

I love the summer and I mean proper summer, you know the one – where you can actually feel the heat in the air!

There’s nothing better than relaxing by the sea in the summer sunshine, an iced-cold drink in one hand and the sea right in front of you – pure bliss!!

(Saying that though – I love extremes so I like the Winter too but ONLY when there’s loads of snow!)

I would love to hear what you all think about this – do you love summer as much as me (and the nation)…..why do YOU think we’re so obsessed with the summer season?

Thoughts! 🙂

    what a great post! I’m also a summer girl, I’m more active, energetic and outgoing during summer. But I tend to be more relaxed during winter, because my body just wants to lurk around on he couch and enjoy good books/ movies.
    But I think it’s the light that makes people that energetic. When the day is longer and warmer you tend to have more motivation to do things – or at least I do.

    Still, I kinda think people need the cold, cosy season where you can “come down”, relax and enjoy family-time. It’s the time to settle things and there’s some things you can only enjoy in winter 😉

      Awww thank you so much for your lovely comment!! It’s nice to see and read what people like and what they prefer! Yes, you’re right – there’s only certain things that you can enjoy in the winter and it’s always nice to snuggle up on the couch, watch tv and eat food whereas in the summer it’s all about going out and enjoying yourself! 🙂 xxx

    If my summer looked like this I’d be obsessed with it too! I was born in the summer but I think I secretly prefer autumn 🙂 It suits my pale girl look!

    I would say it’s the carefree aura of this season. Everybody is on holidays and doesn’t have to worry about a thing. But as soon as the temperatures drop down and it’s rainy or cloudy, sadness and depressions emerge. I think, people should appreciate every season since each of them is great on its own. 🙂 Great topic to discuss, Layla!

    I think summer is amazing because as you said, the vitamin D and the sun shining on you just feels so nice. I do love summer, but I also love winter too! I used to only love winter believe it or not, something about the warm coats, hot chocolate and the rain outside when you’re nice and cosy inside that I just love.

      Exactly – I love the summer for that ‘feeling’ but I love the extremes too so I cannot wait for the snow! I love the winter and cold but not the rain or wind…. hahaha! Oooh, Hot Chocolate – love that too! 🙂 xxx

    A very interesting question! I have always assumed it’s purely down to the sunshine and warmth.. people tend to be happier when they’re not frozen to the core haha. I think you have a point in relating summer to holidays and relaxation, that could be a large part of it! 🙂

    I like summer but don’t like the extreme humidity there is in this season here in D.C. I love spring. Have a great day!

    What I love most about summer is that the sun instantly brightens up my day (compared to when it’s raining & I don’t even feel like leaving the house). However if I’m in the UK & going about my everyday life etc I don’t like it if it’s too hot, but I do appreciate the heat when I go on a sun holiday & I’m lying by the beach/pool x

      I agree with you on this – there’s a balance with everything but this weather we’ve been having the past few days isn’t great! I walked out yesterday thinking I’d be ok and ended up looking like I fell into a lake with the amount of rain! Not good hahaha….take me back to summer until the snow is here! 🙂 xxxx

    I actually love the colder months which I know probably makes me weird, but summer definitely boosts your mood and has health benefits right? and gives you a nice glow xxx

      Hahahaha – I like the extremes, hot weather and sun or cold weather and snow – none of this in-between rain and wind….! 🙁 xxxx
