Benefits of living on the coast

Apart from beautiful views and refreshing sea breezes you will experience by living close to the ocean, there are many health benefits, both physical and mental, that facilitate overall wellness.

We take a look at some of these benefits:

Higher level of Vitamin D

Living near the beach means more time outside and therefore more exposure to vitamin D. You’re likely to spend time outdoors and soak up the sun when you’re within close proximity to the beach. Enjoy a peaceful stroll along the shoreline or play volleyball on the shore with your family. Increased levels of vitamin D aid in improving your immune system.

Improved healing and better skin

Sea water is rich in many minerals like sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium which has a healing effect on your skin. Swimming in the ocean regularly helps improve skin conditions like atopic dermatitis and psoriasis according to a 1999 study from the University of Freiburg in Germany. Sea sand is also a natural exfoliant that helps keep your feet smooth if you enjoy regular seashore walks.

Increased physical movement

With the beautiful weather and atmosphere creating the ideal environment to be outdoors, you’ll never have an excuse to not to be active. Engaging in routine exercise is a great way to stay fit and get healthy. Leading a healthier lifestyle is easier with access to the beach; a simple walk can work those muscles, let alone challenging yourself to a run or even surfing.

Improved sleep

There’s nothing better than a stroll on the seashore after a long day of work to relax you. Negative ions in sea air help with the ability to absorb oxygen and balanced serotonin levels in the body. Balanced serotonin levels lead to improved moods and decreased stress levels which help you sleep better at night.
