Welcome to the August, 2022 Harmony Way Newsletter!
With back-to-school approaching rapidly and summer days beginning to shorten a bit, it's a wonderful time to enjoy the last hurrah of the season with your loved ones. Whether you swim, hike, camp, day-trip, bike, kayak or read outside, there is much to love about this in-between time, where summer starts to change before the first hints of fall appear.
By the end of the month, the nights might be cooler and lovely. (Or they might not...at least here in New England, where the only predictable thing is that the weather is often unpredictable!) The afternoon lighting often seems like "golden hour" as it shines on everything. Whatever your plans this month, enjoy and be safe and well.

This Month's Exercise Demos:
(From: Teacher Mister Alonso)
If you want to feel the burn without needing to lift weights, my top two recommendations are nearly always either Pilates or Barre. They are both wonderful workouts! Also, if you have bored kiddos around the house before they head back to school soon, the second workout is for them (and you, if you want to have some time to play and move as well!).
*Always check in with your medical health provider for advice and guidance before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, discussing these with a qualified medical professional prior to trying any workout.
This Month's Wellness Articles:
(From: Harvard Medical School )
Above are two great articles for summer. Since poor air quality on hot/hazy/humid days can affect asthma negatively, it is always important to have reminders about what to know and what to do. Since many people drink at cook-outs/barbecues over summer and during beach trips, it's also helpful to examine how alcohol affects our health in different ways.
