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.

Founder, Yoga Shanti, Gaiam star

1. Go—with no destination in mind. Our four college kids came and went all summer, which is always fun. On any given morning you may find fifteen teenagers crashed in various corners around the house. So at night, Rodney and I love to go for aimless drives in our convertible, listening to Lucinda Williams or Jason Isbell, and letting the wind blow our hair. (That’s a lot of hair between us.) Our big treat when we feel like we deserve it is to drive to Amagansett and get coffee from Jack’s Stir Brew.

2. Bring your home with you. The beauty of the summer for us is that we don’t travel. (To teach at Yoga Shanti every day and sleep in our bed every night is super sweet. But, for the first time, we don’t have to have the tearful goodbyes with the summer crowd because we will see most of them at Yoga Shanti NYC.)

The fall is when we start hopping on airplanes to teach yogis around the world. My advice is to just bring your home with you—to keep checking into that home that is deep inside you, especially when you’re getting tugged into intense winds of drama and business.

3. Just get on your mat every day and be honest. Whenever you think about it, scan your body and notice where there’s tension. That alone will release the tension. Know that summer will come again, and enjoy all of the deliciousness that each season brings.
