Why it’s a must to visit the beach regularly?
According to the Neuroscientists that people should visit the beach regularly; they strongly recommend and here’s WHY?
We all know that spending time outdoors is good for you on both a physical and mental level, but the benefits of spending time specifically at the beach is more beneficial. I knew all along that this is absolutely true!
The incredible feeling of “peace and calmness” that you experience at the beach is now being referred to as “blue space.” That’s what scientists have dubbed the effect that the combination of soothing smells and sounds of water have on your brain. The blue space is enough to make you feel at ease in a hypnotic sort of way.
Ever notice how relaxing the feeling when we are at the beach? So it’s not just all in our head. Science says that it’s a change in the way our brain reacts to its environment leaving us feeling happy, relaxed and re-energized upon returning!
Overall, this blue space effects you in four different ways.
- Going to the beach reduces stress
Water is nature’s cure to life’s stressors. It’s full of naturally occurring positive ions that are known for having the ability to make you feel at ease. So whether you jump in for a swim or simply dip your toes in the water, you’re sure to experience a feeling of relaxation. That’s one instant mood booster we could all use from time to time!
- The beach boosts your creativity
Feeling like you’re in a creative rut? Well, scientists now believe that the solution to this is the beach. Being in blue space allows you to clear your head and approach problems or projects in a more creative way. Much like meditation, the beach triggers a feeling of calmness that allows you to tune everything else out and reflect on what it is you’ve been needing to focus on.
- Going to the beach can help reduce feelings of depression
Much like the effects that the beach has on feelings of stress and creative ruts, the beach also provides some relief to feelings of depression. The hypnotic sound of the waves in combination with the sight and smells of the beach can put you into a meditative space. In turn, you can clear your mind and reflect on life in a safe space away from the chaos of your daily life.
- Overall, spending time at the beach will change your perspective on life
And that perspective is going to change for the better! Nature in general has always been a factor in healthy happy lives, but the beach in particular is so good for the soul.
So grab the SPF and pack a picnic, because it’s time to head to the beach!!
