Rain, rain, go away…or stick around. Whatever.

woman with black umbrella in heavy rainToday, the chance of rain was 30%. I hadn’t even heard that. I’ve had a headache (or headaches?) off and on for about a week now. I don’t know if it’s because of my cold, because of the weather moving in, because of the full moon, or because of stress. Or maybe a combination of all of the above.

Whatever the reason, I didn’t really enjoy it today when the rain started pounding down right after I got out of my jewelry-making class or when I had to run to a meeting at my son’s school. I didn’t mind the thunder and lightning so much – I actually kind of enjoy the storms – but the rain itself was kind of a bummer because it got me soaked.

Still, it could have been worse.

Then I checked my email.

Here’s the thing. I enrolled in a study – can’t share the details – but part of it involves using a website to check in and discuss my feelings as they relate to depression and anxiety.

It sent me an email, the “thought of the day,” that, I think, was meant to cheer me up or somehow encourage me.

The message?

“Natural sunlight brightens the mood in the truest sense of the word – try it out!”

Thanks, study! That’s exactly what I needed!
