In New England, there are only a few weeks of warm, sunny weather in the summer – if you’re lucky. So when the sun is out and the temperatures are perfect, it’s wise to take advantage of it. The last week or so has been that kind of weather. Temperatures have been ideal, the sun has been shining, it’s past-season for black flies and apparently a little too dry for mosquitoes. What a miracle – no bugs!! Only the occasional short thunderstorm during a late afternoon has come through to interrupt our beautiful days.
Summer is the time to enjoy and rejuvenate. We all need to take a break from our whirlwind, and while having perfect weather shouldn’t be a requirement for when you get away from your routines, it’s an excellent reminder. Even if you take five minutes or perhaps five hours – go ahead, make it five days! – do make sure to take time for yourself. Find something that makes you happy. When you return to your work, others will notice the difference, and you will, too.
