Fighting Summer Work Slump
Think back to when you were in school and the end of the year was getting close... usually that never-ending period after spring break. Remember daydreaming about summer vacation, sleeping in, and no homework? Now that you've grown up, you may not be fortunate enough to get a summer break every year, but our minds and bodies tend to have a hard time accepting that fact.
