There is nothing better to jolt you back into consciousness than a dip in 45F water for 5 minutes.
We are taking a sabbatical right now in the Arctic region for a few weeks to recharge. We are still doing our writing gigs each day, however, this morning we just couldn’t put pen to paper as we were having some dire doubts about our ability to write fantastic material. We decided to skip our pop at the local dealer down the street and go swimming in the icy Arctic waters near our chalet. The space heater is cranked up right now in the powder room of the chalet and someone is getting a hot bathtub of bubbles ready for us when we come back. We will take a dip now in the water to see if it gets our brain going so we will write more when we’re done. Okay, we just got to the beach house from the dip in the sea and we must say that we feel like new people now. The radiant space heater next to us has warmed up the powder room to a balmy 90F while the hot water in the tub envelops our freezing skin and makes us feel comfy and cozy. We feel so alert and awake now you would think we just drank a pot of coffee. The Heating and A/C professional got us into the dips a long time ago and we have been hooked ever since. We felt such a jolt of energy this morning when we went in that we think we’ll do it again tomorrow.
