My houseplants are living in the shade of a second-story deck. Still, in this hot weather, they need to be watered daily. This chore is actually pretty quick--a squirt of the hose and everything is drenched within a couple of minutes.
We water our peace of mind by meditating daily. If summer is busy, then perhaps you can only take 2 minutes--in your car or at the swimming pool.
Drench yourself with a moment of calmness and feel refreshed.
