Balancing Wellness and Sustainability for a Well-Spent Summer

Balancing Wellness and Sustainability for a Well-Spent Summer

We can all recall that moment when summer ends and we find ourselves saying «I can’t believe it’s over; I didn’t see the time fly». Indeed, summer seems to come and go in the blink of an eye, leaving us longing for those vibrant days as they start to shorten. In our rush to explore and discover new places, we often forget to reflect on how we want to spend our summer days and to truly be present in the moment. As the warm breeze and sunny days make their entrance in the Northern Hemisphere, we at Alicia Swim want to share some tips and practices to help you prepare for the season. 
We not only believe in savoring every moment and taking care of ourselves during this season, we also recognize the power of experiencing summer sustainably by protecting the natural surroundings during our adventures. By choosing eco-friendly practices and sustainable products, we foster a sense of purpose and connection to the world, contributing to a healthier planet and a more balanced lifestyle, making our summer experiences enriching and fulfilling. 
In honor of Environment Day and Wellness Day this week, our founder, Alicia, has compiled some of her most meaningful practices to help you prepare for the season and make the most out of it for yourself, others, and the planet.




Embrace the outdoors mindfully 


Connect with nature
Spending time in nature boosts both mental and physical health. Activities like swimming in the ocean, hiking, or simply relaxing on the beach can reduce stress and improve overall well-being. Take time to immerse yourself in natural surroundings this summer.
Practice eco-consciousness
Be mindful of your impact on the environment. Opt for reusable items when traveling and exploring the surroundings: use water bottles and beach bags, and pick up any litter you see to keep the environment clean. Small actions can make a big difference in preserving our natural landscapes.


Choose eco-friendly products


Eco-friendly swimwear
Choose sustainable swimwear. Alicia Swim swimwear is made from sustainable materials like recycled nylon and ocean plastics, which are gentle on your skin and the environment. With designs that focus on fit and form, we ensure you feel good and comfortable while making a positive impact on the planet.
Natural skincare
Protect your skin from the sun with a good sunscreen and other cover ups like our kimono, shirt, pareo or hat. Favor natural, biodegradable skincare products free from harmful chemicals, as they are better for your skin and prevent pollution in our waterways. 


Integrate wellness into your routine


Mindfulness and Self-care
Simple practices like meditation or mindful breathing can help you stay present and appreciate the summer days even more.
Regular exercise
Don’t forget to take care of your body. Engaging in water-based exercises, such as swimming or paddleboarding, or gentle activities such as yoga and meditative walks can promote physical health and mental clarity.
Quality time with your loved ones
Take the time to slow down with your family or friends and spend some quality time focusing on wellness. You can integrate more mindful and creative activities such as drawing, painting, and nature walks.


Share your journey and inspire others


Sharing your wellness and sustainable journey with friends and family by showcasing the benefits of a balanced, eco-friendly lifestyle, can inspire others to make similar choices, creating a positive effect that promotes a healthier planet and enhanced well-being for all.


By balancing wellness and sustainability, you can make this summer memorable and meaningful. Before we enter fully into the season, we at Alicia Swim love to spend some time reflecting on how we want our summer to look. We think about the activities we want to invest in, how we can improve our swimwear brand, what new biodegradable additions we can include in our next collection. This reflection helps us stay aligned with our values and goals, ensuring that we make every step toward a more sustainable and enjoyable lifestyle.


Let's all take a moment and celebrate environment and wellness everyday.
