Beauty Of The Sun

This is a compensated post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
Beauty Of The Sun
I love sunsets and sunrises. They are very therapeutic and magical moments for me. And it is at these times when the sun shows its inspiring beauty minus its harsh rays! I do love staying outside because I love all that nature and the relaxing power of the outdoor offers. They are my powerful antidote to stress! Staying outside whether hiking on the slopes or body surfing in the ocean has been part of my life for long. I hike when I am inspired! I hike when I am full of energy! I hike when I feel stressed! I hike when my mind seems very tired from too much thinking because of work! I hike when I wanted to be energized! I hike when I ran out of inspiration! In summertime, I may do little hiking because of the ocean! I swim because swimming with the fishes, seals, sea lions and the dolphins is very therapeutic.
I boogie board because the waves give me a very fast ride which washes all stresses away! The ocean and the hills and mountains are my local outdoor gym which is free! However, the outdoors is not really enjoyed by everyone! Some do not like the sun, others do not like the sand, or do not like getting salty water mess up their hair or wrinkle their skin. Well, I may not like them too, but I do not want them to STOP ME from enjoying life and feel the rejuvenating gifts of being outside. The joy I feel each time I see surprises from nature cannot be exchanged for gold. That joy is within, in my heart and mind. The gift of nature and outdoors open up to me a very inspiring world not controlled by materialism on Earth. Rather it opens up to me a world that cares! A world that inspires! A world that moves the heart to do good for all of and all in the Earth. Thus no whining can stop me from being out even if it means being under the sun. Thankfully, I can arm myself against the harsh rays of the sun when I am out exploring the outdoors, from the oceans, to the desert to the mountains.
And thankfully, there is the new Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products which includes the sunscreen pictured above. Whether I am out enjoying the water or the land, I know I am protected from the harsh rays of the sun! Since I use sunscreen a lot, the price difference in other branded sunscreen lotions allows me to save more since the sunscreen lasts a long time for me, I use less and pay less. Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products are a great value, allowing families and individuals to save money without sacrificing quality or trust.
Purchase of every Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product supports bringing preventive wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. Walgreens will contribute up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™. The fund will provide free preventive health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities. Some of those services will include preventive health tests through the National Urban League Health & Wellness Tour and vouchers redeemable in select stores. For details, visit

  5. I live in the Eastern Zone of USA. I'm having a 14th birthday party of June 28th at the beach, and it's supposed to be around 75 to 80 degrees that day. I was wondering when the best time to go is because I don't want it to be too chilly there.So when is the sun highest in the sky and shining the brightest? Thanks
