Health.com: 12 Signs You Suffer From Summer Depression

Time really does fly

Some seasons feel like beginnings (the new school year in Fall) and others feel like endings, which can make you feel nostalgic or melancholy. For some people, summer rituals—unpacking the car after vacation, for example—are a reminder of how fast they or their children are getting older or how fleeting life is.

Summer solution: Yes, time is passing, but living in the past is no healthier than having unrealistic expectations of the future, experts say. Instead, it's best to live in the present. (If your feelings of sadness are overwhelming, seek medical help.) Take your best Instagrams of the summer and frame them on your wall—not as a sign of how fast time is passing, but as a reminder of how great you felt in the moment and how you should focus on this one, because right now is great, too.
