The Downward Dog Days of Summer

The Downward Dog Days of Summer are a great time to get back to your practice!

As the days slowly shorten, and summer winds down, how many of us have honestly kept up with a healthy, daily practice, one geared towards both our physical and mental health? If you find yourself awkwardly grinning as you read this, sipping your sangria while lying on the beach, don’t despair; you’re not alone. Even with the best intentions it’s difficult to maintain our healthy practices with any level of consistency when we find ourselves steadily bombarded by a constant barrage of opportunities for summer fun and adventure.

Even with the best intentions it’s difficult to maintain our healthy practices 

We drift away from our mat, gym, or favorite jogging trail in Whitney Woods and our positive habits, the ones we worked so hard to keep, start to hibernate and bury themselves in the sand.

the road back to our healthy intentions is never as long as we fear it will be

However, the road back to our healthy intentions is never as long as we fear it will be, no matter the number of obstacles we may have added by indulging in innocent excess. Yet, the temptation to put off the best choices is often a difficult one to keep at bay. Late summer reticence may even continue into the fall, and, before you know it, it’s January and those healthy activities that we’ve liberally marinated in procrastination are being recycled into 2019 New Year’s resolutions.

reclaim your positive purpose and return to the practices that shape your body and give you a deep sense of well-being

The dog days of summer, are the perfect time to reclaim your positive purpose and return to the practices that shape your body and give you a deep sense of well-being. The sense of relief we feel upon arriving on our mat, moving our body as intended, proves that the reclamation of our healthy lifestyle is not quite as insurmountable a task as we may have imagined it to be.

So, fill your lungs large with life and take those first steps back towards your best self!
