Science Shows That Going to the Beach Is Good for Your Health


Whether we are basking in the sun or splashing in the ocean, everyone enjoys going to the beach. As if we needed reasons to love it any more, science now suggests that the beach is actually good for your brain and overall health. Being at the beach allows us to feel happier, relaxed and re-energized. Based on a recent article from Southern Living, we learned that a recent survey asked over 1,000 beach goers about their mental state before & after their beach trips. The results concluded that the beach trips reduced stress, feelings of depression, and increased creativity.

Another study determined that when people are at the beach, they are more likely to be physically active and more likely to chat with others in a casual environment. Being physically active releases endorphins, which trigger positive thinking and happiness.
