Since our summer season is so short, we love to take advantage of beach days as much as possible! Besides diligently applying sunscreen (we couldn’t resist!), bring one of these books along with you to spend a sunny afternoon in the sand and catch up on some wellness and anti-aging trends.

15 07 03 Beach Bum Reads 2The Happiness Project by Gretchin Rubin

($17.99, Chapters and chapters.indigo.ca)

“I recommend this book to everyone—it’s so applicable to ‘real life.’ Rubin stresses the fact that she’s an average person, not unhappy or depressed, she just wants to live life to the fullest and enjoy the smaller moments just as much as the big ones. I think that’s something we can all relate to, and this book has definitely inspired me to appreciate what I have in my life.” —Nicole Lippay
