There is something truly magical about being near the ocean. Research has proven that the ocean helps restore our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. So, here are some inspirational beach quotes and health facts to enhance your well-being and inspire.
swim in the ocean and connect with the earth
Studies have found that simply living within close proximity to a beach improves one’s health and wellbeing. While it’s not possible for all of us to move to seaside, we can take a day trip and spend a few hours to immerse ourselves in the ocean and to connect with the earth.
Every time I stand before a beautiful beach, its waves seem to whisper to me: If you choose the simple things and find joy in nature’s simple treasures, life and living need not be so hard.” – Roxas-Mendoza
why you should walk barefoot on the beach
A report in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine shed some more light on these benefits of walking on the beach. The earth is negatively charged, so when you walk barefoot, you’re connecting your body to a negatively charged supply of energy. The result is one that many of us feel as soon as we kick off our shoes. Walking barefoot on the beach can trigger tingling warm sensations produced as a result of us “grounding” to earth.
Your daily dose of vitamin D
Sun exposure offers a good dose of vitamin D. Sun-produced vitamin D boosts endorphin levels and lowers the risk of cancer. Of course, we need to apply sunscreen as we all know that too much sun without sun protection can be damaging.
boost respiratory health
The salty sea air has excellent benefits for the respiratory system. Those suffering from asthma or bronchitis will see significant improvements. Not only that, but the ocean air also helps our bodies absorb more oxygen and balances our serotonin levels, which gives our energy levels a boost.
Beach life improves your sleep
When we are on a beach holiday we sleep so well. One of the reasons is the ocean saltwater contains high levels of magnesium that relax the muscles, induce sleep and improve its quality. The sound of the waves rolling onto the shore is also soothing. This is due to its equal intensity and different frequencies, which make it a white noise that helps you sleep and stay asleep, as well as meditate and relax.
Listening to the sound of waves before going to bed has a significant impact on the quality of sleep.
Change is constant. Good or bad, sometimes you have to just ride the waves of life until the tide turns—and it always does.
“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination, and brings eternal joy to the soul.” – Robert Wyland
Why do we feel more alive when we visit the beach? It’s because the ocean air helps our bodies absorb more oxygen and balances our serotonin levels, which increases our energy levels. The salty sea air also has great benefits for the respiratory system.
seawater is healing
Swimming in saltwater is truly healing. It contains vital elements for our well being in the form of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and microorganisms that promote a healthy immune system.
Beach beauty therapy
Seawater is a miracle beauty fix, packed with magnesium, and chloride to heal damaged skin better than any product you can buy off the shelf. Seawater can cure dermatitis, adds elasticity, fights against wrinkles and slows down the aging process.
Exercising on the beach benefits our mental health
Exercising in natural environments has greater benefits for your mental health than exercising anywhere else. The same goes with surfing, a total workout that engages both the body and the mind, with health benefits that go far beyond the high of catching a wave. It can be a form of treatment for depression, stress, anxiety, insomnia, and even post-traumatic stress disorder.
Happy beach days, have a beautiful day.
