Do you have the August blues? You’re not alone. Seems August is a downer for many people because it signals that summer is ending. For some, that means the end of summer fun. For others, it makes them aware that summer is almost over and they didn't go on vacation or do any of the fun things they wanted to do. Others are overwhelmed by back-to-school, back-to-work, back-to-reality scrambling and scheduling.
August has "all the ingredients for a stew of blues," said Joshua Klapow, a psychologist and professor at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. "For many people, it creates a feeling of funk, a feeling of down, a feeling of sadness.”
