September Theme: Back to Basics


For many, the new season brings a fresh focus. It’s a mid-year moment when everything seems to settle—schedules resume and structure returns.

The kids head back to school, athletes head back to the field—

And here at Studio 5, we’re getting back to the basics.

Our September theme is simple, but it’s a theme all of us, are excited to embrace.

Melanie Douglass, Studio 5 Fitness Expert: It’s really important to get back to the basics with fitness and nutrition because we all make it too complicated. We are all really busy so we’ll be thinking about basic forms of exercise and simple things you can eat that are healthy to make the rest of your life easier.

Sandra Phillips, Studio 5 Home & Family Specialist: “We’re going to talk about getting back to the basics of family conversation at the dinner table. I have heard it said, we don’t cook anymore, we thaw. We need to talk about nutrition but we also need to talk about something more basic, in my view, and that’s what we say around the dinner table. We’re also going to talk about washing basics, most of us wash our clothes too long and we use too much soap and they will last longer if we do it more correctly.”

Dr. Liz Hale, Studio 5 Clinical Psychologist: “When I think about “Back to Basics,” I think of simplicity. I make my life so complicated with clutter in my closet, clutter in my heart if I didn’t want to forgive somebody or clutter in my mind with that chatterbox that never stops. It doesn’t have to be that hard. I’m so looking forward to getting back to basics in September when we learn to get back to what’s really important so we have more love, more joy and more contentment.”

Becky Low, Studio 5 Kitchen Contributor: “With everything we’re doing and so many conflict, we are losing those skills and we need to come back and learn those skills. You and I might have them and we need to not take it for granted that they will just pick those up. We need to take those skills and so we have to go back to the basics. I am so excited to go back to the basics that is what my whole are is—basics. You can teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime. That’s what we are doing with the basics—teaching them to fish.”
