How Do You Take Care Of Your Mental Health In The Summer?

Summertime, and the living is not always so easy.

Summer often means a break in your usual routine. Perhaps school has ended, or you've got more time off, or the sun's out, making you feel guilty about hiding in your blanket fort all day.

It can seem like everyone else's summer is going much better than yours...


People keep telling you "Go outside! Enjoy the sun!" but it's just not that simple.

Do you have any tips for getting out of the summer slump? How do you look after yourself?

Perhaps you've got a pretty awesome self-care routine, doing things like curling up with a good book, stretching before you get on with the day, or buying a fancier face wash.

Have you gone travelling on your own? Do you go to support groups in your local area? Or maybe you've taken up a new class for the summer months.
