When looking for ways to spend our time, many of us gravitate toward visiting places where we feel relaxed. The beach is just one of these coveted spots. The beach easily relaxes the mind, decreases stress levels, and boosts our happiness. Even just an hour on the beach can do wonders for our overall well-being.
Here are just a few more reasons we love the beach and how we can bring that beach experience to our home.
1. It's In Our Genes
Throughout our history as human beings, we have spent a lot of time on the shore and in the water. Many have dived for shellfish, swam the waves, and took in the sun's rays on the sandy beaches. We have an almost visceral attraction to the beach and dipping our toes into the water. It is what we were made to do and is embedded in our genes.
2. Activity Central
Another reason we love the beach is because some of our favorite activities can be done there. From swimming and kayaking to canoeing, sailing, and sunbathing, we can enjoy a plethora of activities at the beach.
We can lounge on the sand and breathe in the salty air while the kids make sandcastles at our feet. It is a fun and relaxing time where we can make memories and enjoy each moment.
3. The Salty Air
If you have been to the beach, you are well aware of its distinct smell. It is hard to describe but really comes down to the salty air and beachy smell we have grown accustomed to. It sticks in your mind the same way a good meal does.
The smell of the salty air, the sand between your toes, and the roar of the waves engrain into your memory and instantly lifts your mood.
4. The Blue Sky
The sky somehow seems bigger when we visit the beach. There are no buildings and other structures to clutter the beach or your view. All you have is the large expanse of the sky and ocean before you along miles and miles of warm and sandy beaches. When you hit the sand, you feel like you can finally breathe. You take a deep breath, stare out at the sky, and clear your mind.
5. Sunrise And Sunset
The best times to spend on the beach are during sunrise and sunset. This is when the magic happens. The spectacular colors ignite your senses, heighten your mood, and relieve stress. It allows you to be grateful for what you have otherwise taken for granted.
6. Calming Effect
Walking on the sand, splashing in the water, and watching the waves all have calming effects on our mood. At that moment, you savor each second. It is a good time for reflection and relaxation. It is where you can find the peace and tranquility you find yourself craving during the week.
