Ready for an end of summer link roundup? As we prepare to transition from one season to the next, it's a good time to see what's happening around the web. See what we're reading after the jump.

End of Summer Link Roundup

Meditation and Chronic Illness

With school starting and schedules getting even busier. Consequently, we’re thinking a lot about self-care. Furthermore, one strategy we’re looking into is meditation. Meditation has clinically proven benefits, and it’s been shown to help manage chronic illness. Looking to try it out yourself? Try the headspace app.

Seasonal Changes in Symptoms

Symptoms of some chronic illnesses get worse or better as the seasons change, sometimes with seemingly little explanation. However, a 2015 study in the journal Nature Communications suggests there’s an explanation after all. Due to the fact that the seasons have an effect on when certain genes are active, it’s important to put strategies into place to prevent flare-ups.

Halloween and Chronic Illness

Like most holidays with a chronic illness, Halloween can require a little more planning ahead. Even so, we don’t mind an excuse to start thinking about Halloween a little early!
