You know what makes me happy? A soft tee. A really soft tee that speaks my mind. One of those soft, perfect tees you can wear anywhere: hiking, working out, to yoga, surfing (yeah for a little extra sun protection), or just with a pair of jeans…and not look like I am wearing a tee I wore four times already this week, that was previously drenched in saltwater.

It’s the simple things in life that make me smile: walks, naps, coffee, waves, dogs, nature…and somehow, I firmly believe soft tees fit into that equation. Maybe I’m weird, maybe more people feel the same. But, I think it’s totally ok if a tee makes you really, really happy.

…and if you own a lot of them.

Let’s all thank the ocean for a few things, shall we?

It makes us feel really really small. Which is always a good thing.
It can humble us with the crash of a wave, even the really small ones.
It can inspire us in so many ways, with such little effort.
…and it leaves us all salty, refreshed, and ready to dive in for more as much as possible.

So, when was the last time you spent some time in the big blue sea? Warning: The side effects will do your mind and body a whole bunch of good.

The sun. It’s a tricky and sneaky big ‘ol massive ball of gas. It’s easy to know when you reeeeeeaaaaally need to be protected from it: bright sunny days, beach days, SUNNY days. But what about those in between days, cold days, rainy, or heck, even snowy days? Well, A long time ago I heard a great tip (it happened to be on a vacation and I was rather bummed that it wasn’t sunny at the time)… If you can see your shadow, at all, you better have some SPF slathered on.

Shadow = The sun’s getting to you. Even if it’s a faint little wimpy shadow. So when in doubt, slather on some SPF. Your skin will thank you. Now and in the future.

I just moved to LA, and am in the process of trying out new gyms. I was working out at the YMCA down the street, and they had a little bulletin board in the corner filled with black and white printouts of motivational fitness sayings. One caught my eye, and made me smirk a little because it was so true: Get fit in the Gym. Lose weight in the kitchen.

Yup. It’s the truth.

But one thing is missing:  a place where you can reap all those benefits of your hard work and will power, forget about your worries  and your body), let lose, and be barefoot and salty. That place? The beach.

So, I added on to my new favorite, oh so blunt fitness quote: Get fit in the gym. Lose weight in the kitchen. Keep your sanity at the beach.

…especially if your beach outing includes a board, not too many people and some fun waves.  Extra sanity bonus points there.
