It turns out that living near the beach is really good for your overall health. While we could’ve told you that, there is evidence that the ocean air improves both a person’s physical and emotional being. In fact, doctors in the 18th century used to often prescribe a trip to the shore or time at a “bathing hospital,” which is simply a clinic where they offered saltwater baths. Why? The reasons are simple:
People living near the coast overwhelmingly reported better health regardless of socioeconomic status. This means that no matter who you are and where you come from, beach-living has its benefits.
Relaxation. It’s no secret that stress-levels have an adverse effect on your physical and mental health, and the sea provides the perfect setting for enjoying a well-deserved break.
The salty sea breeze can help ease ailments. Say goodbye to harsh asthma symptoms, and hello to a stronger immune system.
It’s easy to stay active. The beach is not only an ideal view, but one can’t help but want to stroll the shore, visit local shops, and enjoy coffee from a pier-side cafe. When you live near the beach, walking distance to your favorite places will keep you on your feet often.
The best of all? Simply make sure to catch a sunset over the water. This might not show much improvement scientifically, but the joy and peace it brings are unmatched.
