Long days, short nights, freshly mowed lawns, sunshine, warm weather, cold drinks, fragrant blooms, clear skies, tropical fruits, and that long-awaited vitamin sea summer breeze really makes our soul sing. Summer this year might feel a bit different than what we’re used to, but we could all still use a little dose of adventure this time of the year.
Whether you are able to go out and get some VITAMIN SEA with a good beach read and a comfortable swimsuit (with the social distancing of course), lounge in sweats or jammies under a comfy blanket with the AC on full blast, or catching some fun-in-the-sun by making splashes in the pool while barbecuing with your quarantine crew — an adventure, in the end, is ultimately what you make of it! Make sure to bring along the best summer care essentials from the VITAMIN SEA Box which has over $180+ worth of self-care goodies that will bring the sunshine to you!

‘Tis the season of rosé, lounging around on the beach, going on spontaneous getaways, and getting a dose of vitamin sea. Summer is almost synonymous with adventures but for many of us, the thought of leaving the comforts of our home, much less the city, may seem scary and intimidating during this time. We can all feel it; summer is calling us out and we just can’t stop daydreaming about where we will go once everything returns to normal. This might feel a little counter-intuitive given this year’s circumstances, but it never hurts to start planning early and find something to look forward to. Or, if you’re ready for a dose of adventure pronto– there are definitely ways to plan little safe weekend adventures even if you can’t travel outside of the country!

You can also use this journal to log some of your past adventures. Science says reliving happy experiences and the power of positive memories can jump-start your mood and help you feel optimistic for the future.
As amazing as traveling is, it can often feel like a blur once it’s all over. For your past, present, and future travels, this custom-designed Therabox Adventure Journal is part diary, part future/past vacation log. This journal has key trip-planning features you won’t find in most journals, including different sections for your packing list, budget, future destinations, adventure stories, favorite playlists, bucket-list, must-see locations, day-by-day itineraries, inspiring travel quotes, and spaces for free journaling.

You can go wild and defy the norm — transform this as your quarantine adventure journal, log your everyday adventures, and plan your best days at home!
