How To Help Mitigate Back-To-School Blues

For a lot of young people, summertime is filled with extra fun and relaxation, as well as the extra warmth and sunlight that comes with the season. Though you may not know it, this warm weather is actually proven to boost our moods and happiness. Sure, in Southern California, we do not experience the heightened seasonal changes as some climates do, but the days do get shorter and a bit chillier. These changes in weather, as well as the fact that many younger people need to face the beginning of the school year, can get them feeling anxious, stressed, or down. It doesn’t have to be this way though, and I am here to help give you the tools you need to keep your child (and yourself! ) from falling into the “back-to-school rut”.
