Several things. A cool soup that invigorates my being.

Dive into a big book. Or several.

Dream about my homeland many miles away and the fresh rain and a multitude of voices speaking to me from my past.

I used to swim at outdoor pools in Tokyo. But 3 have since been demolished, and one ended "naitaa" evening hours. So I stay indoors and crank the AC or head to a mountain river for a dip.

Plenty of money to fund facilities for temporary foreign athletes but less and less for us who actually live here and pay taxes for things like,....recreational facilities.

Cold shower. Cold beer. Cold cucumber and tomato mousse.

An ice-cold shower coupled with an ice-cold Barley tea. Although it sounds counter intuitive, you should continue exercising in hot weather as it will help you acclimate faster. Just be careful not to get sick

Spicy curry and hot tea.

Become even lazier at work. Just conserving energy. I’m no spring chicken y’know.

So far it's been pretty darn cool outside so we'll see next month.

Otherwise just don't go outside, really.
