5 Summer Activities That Can Boost Your Mental Health

5 Summer Activities That Can Boost Your Mental Health

The sun is shining, temperatures are climbing, and yet… you’re grappling with feelings of depression. While seasonal affective disorder (SAD) typically strikes in the colder months, it can also cast a shadow during spring and summer.

Whether it’s SAD or another cause, here are five summer activities to uplift your spirits:

Step outside for a new outdoor workout regimen like walking, swimming, or hitting the tennis court. Even if exercise feels daunting, simply basking outdoors with a good book or enjoying a picnic with friends can work wonders.

Craft a vibrant summer playlist brimming with upbeat, catchy melodies.

Brighten up your living space by planting flowers. If outdoor space is limited, consider joining a local community garden.

Immerse yourself in the joys of summer by attending a nearby fair, catching an outdoor movie, or spending a day at an amusement park.

Explore the bounty of fresh produce at a local farmer’s market, and perhaps experiment with new recipes using your finds.
