With a new school year on the horizon, it’s time to think about what’s for lunch. Brown bagging it is plenty economical, but a steady diet of sandwiches becomes boring pretty quickly, to say nothing of the fact that all those servings of refined carbs simply don’t provide the energy necessary to power you through a long afternoon.
Light serves a profound function in our lives. Receive too much or too little of it and you’ll experience both physical and emotional effects. I remember visiting Alaska in the summer and reading a book by sunlight at two in the morning. This was a pretty cool experience but it made it quite difficult to sleep at my normal times. I also have many friends who live in Seattle and talk about the lack of sunlight they receive on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for a person to choose where she lives based on the light available in that state. Light affects everything.

I have a very low tolerance for temperatures above 85 degrees, so living in Arizona in summertime is a challenge. I have friends who love heat, the hotter the better, and it’s hard to understand that I’m not just complaining. Some days I really do feel like I am struggling to survive.

Once again, triple-digit temperatures surround us and the hotter we get, the thirstier we feel. “Don’t get dehydrated” is as commonly heard here in Arizona as “it’s a dry heat” so everywhere you go you see people with their water bottles. Which is a good thing, don’t get me wrong. But just like most things that are good for us, did you know that too much water could turn into a bad thing? Over-hydration is as potentially a life-threatening situation as is under-hydration. Now the average Joe or Jane is not risking anything as they down their requisite number of ounces of water during the day. It’s the athletes attempting to maintain their work-out regimens in the heat of the day that are a concern, or workers required to carry out their duties in the heat of the day. Well intentioned as it may be, as these individuals attempt to avoid dehydration, they may in fact end up drinking too much water and slip into over-hydration. Too much water could be considered a poison. No kidding; it does happen.
