“Summer can be a busy time of year for many of us, but fall is often where our lives really kick back into gear. With return to school schedules, getting ready for fall sports, a sometimes- intense football season for those superfans out there, and the holidays being just around the corner, we often forget that summer actually lasts into late September. As we head into our new schedules for the fall, September is a great month to remind ourselves of the remnants of summer that still remain. With these, we should all try to take a pause (or a few) where we can, and enjoy that easy-living summertime mindset for a while longer. To cap off our summer, my husband and I will be making our annual trip north to Ontario for some R&R together. We’ve taken a couple of other wonderful trips this summer, but all have been enjoyed with other family or friends. We try to make it a point every year to book some time for just the two of us, away from other distractions in life, so that we can reconnect with each other and have some time to “get off the grid”. I often find that reconnecting with the people in my life and our surrounding environment, especially the outdoors, is like a system re-set for me. It provides clarity and needed time away from screens and external distractions. So, remember, as you get back into your “daily grind” these next fewmonths, to be mindful and observant of opportunities that may allow you to find that system re-set for yourself in a time of year that can often feel very overwhelming.

Be present in your day-to-day, with family, with friends, with colleagues, with strangers and with your surroundings, whatever those may be. In the words of Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast.
