Typically, it is believed that seasonal depression is only during the winter months, but some people struggle during the summer. Since mental health is a year-round journey, let’s look at some ways to manage your state of mind.
- Vitamin D is essential for your body – too little vitamin D can lead to symptoms of depression. The summer is full of sunny days – so get outdoors and enjoy the natural vitamin D that your body craves.
- Getting away for a weekend can provide some much needed time for self-care or to work on a relationship. While COVID has stopped us from being able to travel, many places are beginning to open up. So, after a year of not being able to travel, this is an ideal time to get out and explore the World.
- Many times people think of goal setting during New Years, but setting a goal can be during any time of the year. Sit down with a pen and paper for an hour. Work on creating some meaningful SMART Goals that will help you achieve something new.
