So, given that summer’s here, school’s out and everyone is hopefully doing fun, cool stuff instead of boring, indoor stuff, well, you’ll notice the updates here to be fewer and far between for the next 2-3 months. That’s the way we spend our summers — outside whenever possible, sipping mint julips under the palm trees at our weekend cottage.

Okay, you’re right. We don’t have a summer cottage. I haven’t seen a palm tree in years. And I wouldn’t know how to make a mint julip if my life depended upon it. I actually spend a lot of my time working on renovations to the house on the weekends and working regular office hours during the week. Nonetheless, look for fewer updates in the summer.

Go outside. Enjoy the sun. Enjoy life. That is, after all, what psychology is ultimately all about — figuring out how to live a happy, fulfilling life.
