Why Life is Better At The Beach


When you're at the beach, it means you aren't at work... I don't think that needs any extra explanation.

Vitamin D is good for the soul. It boosts your mood and decreases stress. Just don't forget the sunscreen!

Did you know that taking a dip in the ocean can actually help open your pores and remove toxins from your body? The magnesium in the water can also help calm nerves.

Reading for pleasure has been known to reduce stress by as much as 68%!!! And you all know a good book and the beach just go hand in hand. Always.

The beach is even better when you're with people you love, and when the people you love also love the beach. But then again, who DOESN'T love the beach?? Did you catch all that?

In case you all didn't notice from my lack of email responses... I've been on vacation this week at a very beautiful beach with Jared and our best friends. I'll be on my way home tomorrow, crying salty tears about leaving this gorgeous place! ;) Happy Friday!!!

  3. I remember you saying you guys were trying to plan this, yay that it got done. Can't wait to hear where you went - if the tag on your pic is right, it says Punta Cana, which is where we were going to try to go but from St. Louis its just not a great deal money wise this year
