Here in Colorado summer is in full swing. Long days spent up in the mountains or poolside, perhaps some travel, enjoying the first ripe tomatoes from my garden, and basically enjoying the warm weather. Unfortunately, or fortunately as the case may be, the school-aged kids go back to school in a few short weeks which seems a bit unfair since it seems that most of us are just getting used to summer, now.
What that means is perhaps it is time to tune up our brains as well as your children's since it will be time to return to a more academic focus. This transition can be difficult from relatively unstructured summer fun to the rigors of schoolwork. Even those of us who no longer have children at home, or who are childless could use some brain support, so here it is!
Enjoy the fruits of summer and remember, at least out here school starts very soon. Remember also that regular physical exercise clears the mind and will help to improve your mental focus and mood. Get out and have fun for a few more weeks, and then when school starts, a different kind of fun!
