Reasons to Own a Rack for Your Car

Reasons to Own a Rack for Your Car

In the summer and the early autumn months, the mood to go kayaking can so easily grab you. A positive weather report, a free weekend and the chance to just hit the water can be an overwhelming urge. However, without a kayak car rack, you had better have pretty long arms to carry it!

To avoid being let down, make sure that when the mood strikes you’ve already prepared. A kayak roof rack can easily be found to give you easy access to a simple form of transport for your kayak. Not only will this greatly speed up your overall efficiency, it avoids being let down. Nothing is worse than wanting to go out there and enjoy the thrill of kayaking with no means of travel.

Choosing your Car Rack Types

Rooftop Racks

Do you have a SUV or any other similar vehicle with pre-installed rack, you can choose the rooftop racks, specially designed to fit these racks. Or else, you can use a device named as ‘tower’ or ‘foot’ that is available to hold the bars making up your rack.

Trunk or Deck Racks

On the other hand, if you have a hatchback or sedan, a deck or trunk rack is the perfect option. You can attach these devices with the straps and hooks to your hatchback or trunk. As a matter of fact, these aren’t racks actually, but they’re called ‘mounts’.

So, why should you look to invest in a new kayak car rack?

Safe and Sound

A good roof rack will make sure you don’t have to worry about damage, collision or any other typical problem that you are likely to face. If you fear for your safety out on the roads due to the kayak, perhaps not being prepared, then a kayak car rack can help you solve this problem. It adds an extra layer of stability to the car as well as the kayak. By keeping it steady in place you can make sure that you have extra confidence in making it from A to B without problems.

More Comfortable

Your driving experience is much better with the kayak above the car also. It allows you to have much better relaxation within the car as you try (and usually fail) to fit the kayak inside the car itself. By having the roof rack kept above, you avoid this problem from becoming an issue and thus hampering your experience.

Extra Storage

Another fine benefit of using a car rack is that it keeps more space in the car itself for supplies. Boost your supply capacity by using the extra space saved on your car as a second trunk. Best of all, you can use your roof as a second transport area with any space that is left over. Just be sure to tie it all down to avoid anything spilling onto the road

Carry Extras

Going on a little weekend away for fitness and fun? Then bring all of your equipment at once. Now you can carry the kayak, your bikes and extra sports equipment all at once. This used to cause a lot of logistical problems, but a roof rack can help you avoid these problems from developing in the first place.

As you can see, multiple benefits exist regarding the safe use and effective management of kayaks with a rack. These racks allow for better stability, and they tend to be very easy to fit into vehicles. Even those without extensive experience of car management or maintenance should have no problems fitting a rack onto their car.

Once you do this, you can find that your kayaking trips will soon become a whole lot easier to manage!

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
