What are you planning to do for self care this summer? It might not be something you plan like your adventures and outings but I think it should be. Alaskan summers are intense in their own right. We may not have 90 degree temps but the light is out all the time and that can make the urge to burn the candle at both ends strong. Do you arrive to fall tired, sick, burnt out, or inflamed in digestion or body???? Then you made to do some mid-summer maintenance. Scheduled relaxation, slowing down, reflecting, and fun is just as important as the races and the places you are planning for your summer months. Spend your solstice weekend eating gourmet organic meals, spending time in nature at a remote Alaskan lodge (only two hours drive north from Anchorage), practicing yoga, and getting healing body work. There are only eight spots available for this retreat to keep it intimate and everyone well attended to. Immerse in self-care for a weekend. Stay balanced all season.
