A new survey found out what we already knew: winter is bad for your health, appearance, and sex life. Thanks to the dark and cold months, we'll get sick more, be in crappier moods, and have no motivation.

1 in 20 people surveyed also said that their libido suffers during winter.

"This shows that many of us do feel down in the dumps when the weather turns colder and days get shorter," said Dr. Meg Arroll, a psychologist with Healthspan. "Some of this may be due to the lack of daylight and perceived unpleasantness of being out and about in the wind and rain."

She recommends taking active steps to protect your health and well-being.

Here are the top ten ways that winter makes us suffer:

  1. Flu and colds
  2. Dry skin
  3. Less energy
  4. Increased illness
  5. Feeling demotivated
  6. Struggle to wake up
  7. Increased appetite for unhealthy foods
  8. Weight gain
  9. Feeling sad
  10. Sore joints
