Self-Care During the Summer

On Friday on the Happiness Box Project’s Instagram page, I posted about summer SAD. I  have seasonal affective disorder in the summer and the summer tends to make me depressed. Usually, in the summer I take extra special care so I don’t overspend (like I did this week) and so I don’t stress out about how I feel.

I talk to friends and loved ones, of course, but I also have been scrapbooking Happiness Box 2017. I just finished June 2017; I only have 5.5 months left to complete and I hope to have it done by September or October. I’m not going to rush it, though, it’ll get done when it gets done.

Today I also received a letter from one of my British friends. I am thankful to have friends all over the world.

One thought on “Self-Care During the Summer”

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I am your brother from another mother, dear friend, because I tend to get depressed during the endless Florida summer season which seems to run from January 2 to December 31. 🙂 It helps to stay busy accomplishing things like writing, working on a favorite project or tackling chores that require attention. You derive great satisfaction from completing tasks and crossing them off your “to do” list. You have a wonderful collection of happy memories from friendships formed with people all over the world.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
