How to hold onto your summer bliss: Brogan Graham


Working out outside (even as it gets chilly) will keep you tapped in to the positive energy of summer, says the November Project creator.

“Ride bikes everywhere and run as much as you can,” says November Project’s Brogan Graham, who loves the Charles River, where “downtown Boston vibes and nature wrap into one.” (Photo: Brogan Graham)

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. Keep working out outside. I continue to train early with my morning workout group called November Project all summer long and into the fall, through the brutal winter, and on into the spring. We get tons more people when summer brings out the sunshine earlier in the day, and people can strip down and train in next to nothing. These late summer days we’ll get between 650 and 800 people participating in our free workouts in New York City and Boston. Hold onto the momentum.

2. Ride your bike everywhere. I think of riding your bike as a way to hold onto summer—and also as a way to drive spring back into your life. Riding through the winter can be a bit insane here in Boston, but I think it helps you stay positive and face the New England weather head-on. When I was at Northeastern, I used to have a contest with my teammates: Who could wear their flip-flops the longest into the fall. With snow on the ground, and all of us looking a little like crazy people, we went the long haul… Rowers, especially my Husky teammates, are an odd breed. —Sarah Sarway
