1. Surround yourself with reminders of the ocean.

2. Add touches of the sky in its multi-colored beauty.

Nothing beats watching the sky over the ocean as it changes color — from the gold of sunrise to light blue with white clouds floating in the afternoon, to the purples and pinks during sunset.

4. Recreate the sight of palm trees and the feel of cool winds.
