How to Beat the Summer Blues

How to Beat the Summer Blues | BCBusiness

1. Paint rain clouds on the office windows so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.

2. Ask your boss if you can shift your regular 9-5 to a slightly earlier 6-2, so you can capture a portion of the afternoon sun (even if it means being exhausted).

3. Move meetings outside. Even a sunny downtown sidewalk beats a stuffy boardroom.

4. Dress like you’re going to the beach to uplift your office-worn spirits.

5. Instagram photos of eating your lunches outside. Friends will think you’re on a picnic, and if you keep up the ruse you might end up believing it yourself.

6. Turn your computer monitor to max brightness, put on some shades and soak up the closest thing to the sun you’ll see all day.
