Nature is awesome and it gives us pleasures to which material things cannot be measured. Among the various wonders of nature, what I love the most is the beach. The beach and the sea can be such an amazing therapy. Amazing would be an understatement as it is much more than that. From a simple walk, watching the sunset or swimming in the blue lagoon, it can be so soothing and enough to unplug from the stressing work-driven realities and technologies to which we have become so addicted. There is nothing better than the beach to help you recharge. Here are 8 reasons why you should go to the beach more often:
- Sand is a natural exfoliation
Wet sand acts as a natural exfoliation and peels off dead skin cells from your feet, leaving it renewed and softer.
- The sun is a source of vitamin D
Vitamin D is known for healthy bone and skin. But don’t forget to use your sunscreen to block harmful rays.
- Its proven: Sunlight helps fight depression
It’s proven that sunshine can make us happier. Researchers from Baker Heart Institute in Melbourne Australia found that the amount of sunlight received by participants directly affect their mood.
- The beach gets you moving
Lazy bums out there should go to the beach more often forcing you to be more lively without you even realizing it. A swim or even walking, will definitely help.
- The sea contains anti-aging minerals
Researchers have found that seawater increases the elasticity of the skin due to the minerals found in sea water, making it look clearer and smoother.
- Decreases stress level
In one beautiful place, our body can get lots of benefits. Sunlight exposure is known to increase serotonin level which has positive effect on stress, sleep and appetite.
- Bonding with family and friends
The beach also means family time. It is the best place to spend quality time with your dear ones and enjoy a good laugh and talk.
There is nothing better than the beach to relax and contemplate the wonders of nature. We all need a break from time to time and the sea, sun and beach are the greatest gifts of Nature.
