Do I Have a Solar Eclipse Hangover?

Anyone else feeling blah today?

August 22, 2017

I didn't drink one drop of alcohol yesterday, but somehow I feel like I have a mild hangover. Hmmm, seems weird, right?

Yesterday's Solar Eclipse reportedly could affect our moods. If you felt overwhelmed, anxious, and emotional you can blame it on the sun and the moon. Sure, I felt a bit overwhelmed yesterday, but that's because I have four TV screens in the studio that all had eclipse coverage airing and the Taylor Swift thing too. 

But why am I feeling meh today? I did some googling and found that a lot of people seem to be having a post-eclipse headache. Mashable found that one of the most searched topics after the eclipse was eclipse headaches. 

Here's the deal though, we can't blame the eclipse on our headaches and our blah mood today. Experts are saying that it could be a combination of strained necks, more time in direct sunlight, and the eclipse glasses. Looking through those eclipse glasses definitely was trippy.

I'm glad that I am not the only one experiencing an eclipse hangover!
