Sweltering Summer Strategies for Success


Sweltering, blistering, boiling, broiling, burning, fiery, heated, hot, red-hot, roasting, scalding, stifling, humid, sultry, sticky, muggy, close, stuffy.

Does this sound familiar?

Uncomfortably hot days are hard. They can even make you cranky (says science - I'm not naming names). Experts say hot and humid weather is associated with increases in aggression and violence, as well as a generally rotten moods. Thanks a lot, science, right? (Live Science)

One option might be to move to Seattle, where I live. On average, we have less than a week of these conditions each year. But moving might not be realistic.

No worries, though! I have a plan for you!

My Gold Care Club member, Karen, was being extremely successful at getting her course descriptions done last week. She finally confessed the REAL reason for her productivity.

"The heat is helping me stay indoors and get those course description accomplished." ~ Karen

Other parents were hiding at Starbucks in air-conditioned bliss, getting course descriptions completed. Another was sitting in her air-conditioned car, watching her daughter compete on horseback.

Take advantage of the heat. Sure, there are a million things you could be doing if it wasn't so crazy hot outside. But since it IS crazy hot outside, enjoy the cool indoors, sit still, and get your paperwork done. Then, when the weather is awesome for playing, you'll be all caught up!
