From Dr. Jane's Notebook

Summer Workaholics I

Summer is upon us. I know this is a frightening realization. The seasons are once again changing and this calls for a "shifting of gears". No way to get around it. Friends will be calling to invite you to outdoor activities. You will feel the heat of the day. And all around you, trusted co-workers will be discussing "summer fun." You will have to face the music.

For those who feel like a hunk of iron and steel drenched with the never-ending tension of work and worry, I recommend the following "summer transition procedure." It's a tough job...but as they say, someone has to do it.

Summers needn't be filled with dread. Plan for some new form of fun or re-enact some favorite fun from the past. And if it helps, just consider it "a new project."
