The Beautiful Side of Life...

...in the midst of quarantine ... Part IX

The Final Episode

It seems like ages ago that we started this distance learning routine. And yet it feels crazy to think that the school year is over all at the same time.

I know this has been a huge learning experience for all of us. Spending endless amounts of time in front of a screen and not in front of human faces was certainly not the way I envisioned spending a good chunk of this school year.

Sometimes our best life lessons are created in the times that we can't control, that we can't change, and that we wish we could wish away. And yet ... we made it through.

My summertime tips for you are: enjoy your family, appreciate your friends, get outside, practice some good self-care, exercise, and find the things in life that bring you joy. Our mental health is always taking care of the whole person ... spirit, soul, body, mind, emotions ... so take really good care of your whole-self this summer.

Enjoy your time off ... I am looking forward to the time I can see you all in person again!

We made it!

Did You Join our Fitness Challenges?

...keep going! Maybe the 30 days has ended ... but it doesn't have to! Are you still doing the hydration challenge? Keep going! Planks and push-ups? Keep going!

Just because it's summer doesn't mean we should stop taking care of our bodies. Just think ... these same bodies are going to take us through our entire lifetime. Treat them well!
