Cloudy winter weather, doubled by the few hours of the day, seems to cause depression for a large number of persons. Therefore different countries try different remedies, more or less sophisticated.
Sweden is counting on the calming and relaxing effect of the color white. Therefore, there are many cafes in Stockholm where all the furniture is white and the people waiting on customers wear the same color. Such cafes also ask their customers to take off their shoes and wear a long white robe.
Israeli researchers are trying something else: electromagnetic impulses. This is medical treatment; unlike the relaxing hours spent in a white café, but it seem to be helping a lot of people.
So, what do we do in Romania? Well, not much, until it gets really bad. For the rest of the cases, there’s always chocolate, for those allowed to eat it! Thank God higher forces are thinking of us…The result: a bright sunny day with a 12 C maximum temperature. The same predicted for the weekend: 16-17 C temperatures, sunny and bright weather…So what, we won’t have snow on Christmas? It gets ugly and dirty too fast, so no help in the whiteness there…
Mediterranean heat, thank you for coming our way!
