I really enjoy summertime in Dubai, call me crazy but there is a lot to be said for a place that pretty much 100% shuts down for a few months. Rather then feeling frustrated with the heat, and the feelings of being behind the rest of the world in productivity, use it as a mini life break.
It is a great time to enjoy life in Stay-cation mode, and is a great time to make use of all your spare time to get around to trying that new Crossfit class or joining up for FlyBarre or joining an early morning Nike running club. There is so much going on during the summer sports wise in Dubai, you have no excuse.
Last summer I spent most of it running around Dubai Sports World, www.dubaisportsworld.ae, making the most of the indoor boot camp and the great equipment they have on offer in the free gym down there. Not to mention the running track, the tennis courts and football pitches, all indoors! Its great, and the atmosphere in there was pretty cool (literally and metaphorically speaking so).
Personally, I love to try something new over the summer – it’s a good time to not spread yourself too thin. The pace of life here really slows down, rather then trying to fight it, how about your enjoy it.
Bounce have a great 2-4-1 deal on right now, I am yet to go but it is massively on my list. Groupon has some great deals over the summer, so try a new gym or class out before spending a fortune on the full package.
Right now I am enjoying my 630am swims, the pool in my building is pretty awesome and at that time, no one else is there, I pretend it is my private pool. Find something that makes you feel good. Let this be the Summer of Love[ing yourself].
Would love to know what you guys get up to over the summer! Send us an instagram of your Summer R.Y.E @theryelife
It’s important to practice what you preach, so with that in mind, I am off to Bali for a yoga retreat and to finally take my 200 YTT this August. I find learning relaxing, yoga is active meditation and to visit a new country I have never been to before, well that is just exciting!
Whether you are hear of flying off to some new shores, make the most of your summer, if that means switching off, learning a new sport, adding a daily yoga routine into your morning, make sure you enjoy every minute of it.
