Here are 8 Ways to Beat the ‘August Blues’ in Rochester

The August blues are actually a thing, and that sucks!

But fear not, because you’re not alone.

It seems August can be a downer for a lot of 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 their friends bragged about on social media.

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.”

So how do you beat the August blues? Simple: Take advantage of doing the things you enjoy in life!

That’s why you should get out and enjoy the remaining Ski Dox Ski Shows on Lake Zumbro! Meet up with a friend or two at Thursdays on First, or even lay out at Foster Arend Beach. Heck, you can even relax and feed the geese at Silver Lake.

All these things are FREE to do and enjoy, plus they’re all what makes Rochester awesome!
