The summer blues can develop into something more serious and there maybe other causes that make using these tips difficult for you. If you’re feeling down for more than a few weeks, not sleeping or eating normally or feel the impulse to make dramatic changes in your life, reach out to a professional counselor for advice. You’ll be glad you did. If you don’t know who to see, ask your doctor. A counselor may be able to add new perspective to your life and highlight options for you that are difficult for you to see. Your doctor or counselor also might evaluate you for a rare disorder call Seasonal Affective Disorder, which in rare cases shows itself in the summer instead of winter. Above all, take action. Don’t let the summer blues get you down.
