Sweet summertime is here, a glorious window where Alaskans attempt to pack in every activity we can. During this time we’re so busy trying to get everything checked off our bucket list before a long winter begins, we sometimes lose our routines and begin to feel a little off balance.
Here are a few tips to add balance back into your life, while still enjoying the summer.
Be An Early Bird
Adding some structure to your summer can help you feel like you’re in greater control of your routine. Hitting the gym 3-4 times a week in the morning can be a great summer goal. That way you get your workout out of the way early and still have enough energy for chasing that midnight sun later on.
Take A Rest Between The Rush
Rushing to the Russian, camping in a new spot every weekend, there is a lot going on during the summer and sometimes it can be a bit draining. Set a day aside to rest and catch up on other activities like sorting through the mail, paying bills and making calls. It can be very rewarding having a day off from running around, and it can make those other busy days more enjoyable. Take at least half a day every week to focus on you, and you’ll see a big difference.
Go Your Om Way
There are lots of activities offered during the summer that help add structure while still allowing you to get the most out of it. A great option is The Alaska Club’s free Yoga in the Park series, which takes place in Anchorage, Juneau and Fairbanks. Classes are free, open to the public and for all skill levels.

Let Them Play
While the kids are out of school, they can start to grow restless from lack of structure and your days can start to feel overwhelming. The Alaska Club’s summer fun camps are a great way to give your kids the entertainment and balance they need, while allowing yourself a little time for you, whether it’s taking a break, hitting up the gym or yoga in the park.
