Monday Morning Practice

Bring summertime into the work day

Written by Allison Wolf

The week before the Labour Day weekend feels precious. The calm before the storm that begins on September 6 as we enter the fall rush towards the year end. This week, if you are spending it in the office, take some breaks during the day to relax into some summer activity with ties to the summers of childhood. Maybe it is stepping out to enjoy an ice-cream cone in the park. Or sitting in the sunshine reading a good book. Or a swim after work.  Whatever it is for you, grab on to it, and enjoy.
