Well, we’re thoroughly enjoying this British Summer. You might not realise it by looking out the window but it's going to be July tomorrow. Now, I know what you're thinking, can this beautiful June weather possibly get any better? ....well, here's hoping!
But, ever one to see the silver lining in every (massive black rain) cloud, we've decided to try and make the most of this weather while we have it. Luckily for us, economic anthropologist Adam Alter wrote ‘Drunk Tank Pink: And Other Unexpected Forces That Shape How We Think, Feel, and Behave’ on this very subject...
We're all being held hostage by the balmy British climate so we might as well take Alter's advice & make the most of it, and if those Hampshire rain clouds are anything to go by, there's never been a better time!
As soon as it starts to look miserable outside our office (just like this morning!) we rush to the kettle and start the day-long process of chain-drinking tea. We like to make ourselves feel better when the weather is worse, and not just emotionally; when the clouds start to roll overhead and the first raindrops begin to fall, it’s time to get creative.
If our brains are proven to be more alert in this type of weather, then it’s high time we took full advantage of this biological programming; why not start your toughest challenge today? That one you've been putting off for months; afterall, you won't want to tackle it when the sun finally makes an appearance!
One day soon the sun will come out, our brains will turn to mush and it will be glorious, but until that day comes have a wonderfully productive July everyone!
