What’s summer without some time spent by the water? Whether you’re enjoying time lakeside or near the ocean, you really can’t beat basking in the sun on a big beach blanket with a book and a Happi in hand.  


In this That Makes Me Happi blog post, we’re digging into why being by the water makes us feel so zen, along with some beach coolers that we think look like pretty sweet places to chill (c’mon, we’re cans of seltzer, after all!), and some fun games to tote along with you on your next beach day. 


  • Why Water Makes Us Feel Happy: Tranquility, peacefulness, and increased happiness are all associated with spending time by the water, per this report. Sounds like three good reasons to book your next visit to the lake or ocean!  
  • Chill Out: What’s a beach day without some crisp, cold drinks? We love these beach-friendly coolers–looks like you can stash a lot of Happi in these bad boys! 
  • Grown Up Game Time: Card games are a classic way to have some competitive fun at the lake, so why not give a few of these buzzworthy card games made for adults a whirl? 


Where’s your Happi place by the water? Let us know in the comments. 


We hope you have a great holiday and we’ll see you back here in two weeks to share some of our faves inspired by Lemon Elderflower.
