August is late morning wake-ups and two strong cups of coffee. Studies have shown that time actually slows in August, making all movement difficult. The heat of an August afternoon saps not only strength, but motivation. Mojitos and Juleps were probably invented in August, anything to cut through the lethargy, or at least make the lethargy feel better.
It’s necessary, though. Everybody needs that down time. August just happens to be a great time to get it. Enjoy it while it’s still here. September is just outside the gates.
