Yes, the sun is setting on the sweet, blissful months of summer. But that doesn’t mean you have to just submit to the frenzy of fall. We asked top wellness experts how they continue to channel summer’s relaxing vibe long after Labor Day. Follow their lead for a saner season.

1. Escaping New York City during the summer is a must for me and my fiance. On the weekends, we drive about an hour north to explore the trails of Minnewaska State Park, local farmers markets, wineries, and restaurants.The hiking, fresh air, and views are simply amazing and such a wonderful release from the city static.

2. Go on morning walks. We love to start our day walking along the Hudson River. No email, phones, or business talk until we’ve gone on our walk. This is something we definitely plan to hang on to as we move into one of the busiest times of the year. Having those 15–30 minutes of peace and connection really allows us to hang on to the feeling of relaxed summer bliss!

3. Find a few minutes to meditate. My “go to” will always be yoga, meditation, and movement. We always do our best to take a few minutes when we wake up to meditate, and a few minutes before bed to meditate, too. Whether it’s five, ten, or 20 minutes, we keep it simple and make it happen. I have to say that taking this time has made all the difference for creating the space inside for happiness, calmness, and allowing all the awesome summer energy to find its home inside of us. —Sarah Sarway
