Patna: Mental well-being is not limited to work pressure and lifestyle.Even the weather outside can have a large effect on a person's mood and mental health.Experts agree that extreme heat or cold exerts a strain on human health, both physically and mentally.High temperatures today are not only resulting in heatstroke, rashes, and exhaustion among people, but also deteriorating their mental health.The high temperature has a significant effect on even aggressive behavior.High temperatures have a negative effect on memory, attention, and reaction time, according to the study.Also, unsettling weather can worsen the individual's mental health condition.Children, elderly, chronically ill people, those with mobility problems, and pregnant and postpartum women are especially vulnerable to mental health problems. Dr Santosh Kumar, an associate professor of psychiatry at Nalanda Medical College and Hospital who is also the nodal in charge of a de-addiction center, said that the cases of migraine also increase in the hot weather, causing more irritability.Extreme weather, or even the seasons change, Dr Santosh says, can have an effect on a person's mental wellbeing.Because of the change of seasons, people experience seasonal affective disorder.Summer, these people experience extreme irritability and a lack of enthusiasm.
