Some Like it Hot

Many people from back East and the Midwest, i.e., New York, Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, Boston, Minneapolis, and other states move to AZ because they can’t take the bitter cold, snow, and sleet. They arrive in toasty AZ ready to plant new roots only to find that they took themselves with them. They complained about the weather in their former state only to complain about the heat in AZ. Go figure!

If you plan to move to another state, before you move work on yourself. If you complained about the snow in Ohio, chances are you may end up complaining about the heat in Arizona. It’s hot — deal with it or stay in Ohio. Some people (me) love the heat! We don’t mind the 100+ temps because it’s refreshing and great for any weight loss system.

The sun can be your friend. Don’t stay out too long and apply sunscreen and lotion if you feel you must do so. Make sure you read the label. You’d be surprised what you’re lathering on your skin. In fact, the sun is probably better for you than some of the lotions and sunscreens on the market.

The next time you find yourself complaining about the weather in a new state, take a few minutes to pause and think about it. Remember, complaining just breeds more complaining. And, if you were miserable in your former state, chances are you’ll be miserable no matter where you are!
