In yoga classes, we start out by offering an intention to our students. This word/idea/phrase is something that can be used throughout class to focus your energy and therefore your results.
Teachers have a unique situation - summer vacation is like a mini New Year’s. Here’s an opportunity to set some goals, make a new start, and create a word of the summer. I’m offering the idea of INTENTION to you.
Make each day and each activity intentional. Even if you’re catching up on your Netflix or your favorite series from the library, sink into each day and activity with the knowledge that this is exactly what you’re supposed to be doing.
QUOTE: "Teachers: We need you to focus on your mental wellbeing during the summer with the same intensity and intention that you focus on your students during the school year. " ~Matt Weld
At every moment, the future starts.
I would urge you to be intentional in three areas this summer.

DAD JOKE: I'm a social vegan. I avoid meet.
Have a fantastic summer! Jumpstart will jump back in the first week of September.
Keep in touch over the next couple of months - I’ll be in the office or at one of our events for most of the time, although visiting family in Montana, California, and Georgia is also on the list.
