Somehow, Labor Day Weekend is already here (seriously, where did June, July and August go?), which means, unfortunately, we’re forced to deal with the summer scaries. For the uninitiated, the summer scaries are that bummed out feeling we all get when we all realize that our days of summer Fridays, crop top temperatures and lazy beach weekends are numbered. But luckily, there are ways to beat the summer scaries – it starts simply with thinking positively.
Instead of having that same old conversation with your friends/coworkers/neighbor about how bummed you are about summer ending, keep it positive. While it may only seem like small talk, all that negativity about summer ending can make your thoughts turn super negative – which is what causes the summer scaries in the first place!
Next time your friends start up another round of complaining about the end of summer, switch the conversation to everything you’re excited about for fall. (Even if pumpkin spice isn’t your thing, it’ll be nice to get outside without sweating like crazy again!)
While the warm sunny weather is still here, make sure to make the most of it. Treat yourself to one last beach trip, wear sandals as much as possible and take full advantage of the long weekend! Once you’ve savored the last bit of summer, you’ll feel ready for sweaters and fall leaves.
When you start talking about how excited you are for fall, you just might start to believe it yourself – no suffering from the summer scaries necessary.
