The beach heals!
Its healing effects are many. We go to the beach because deep down we know that the wind, sand and waves will wash our worries away. Here are just a few health benefits the beach has to offer:
Sunshine – Get your daily dose of vitamin D simply by vegging out for a few moments by the sea. Vitamin D is good for bone strength and immune support!
Stress Relief – The color blue, the sound of the waves, the sun shining on your face… what do they all have in common? They are incredibly soothing! Many people report getting a much better night’s sleep after a day at the beach.
Ample Opportunities to Exercise – The sand creates more resistance than pavement, so walking or running on the beach is more of a workout and really strengthens those muscles! Swimming is an exercise great for those with injuries or weak joints as it’s much gentler on the body.
Natural elements as beauty enhancers – Skip the expensive facial and let the sand and salt water air give your skin an all natural, sun kissed glow. Also, who doesn’t love a nice tan?
Swimming in Salt Water – The ocean’s salt water is full of natural minerals that the body needs, such as magnesium, potassium, and iodine. Magnesium alone is so beneficial for the brain and it helps relieve anxiety.
The beach is truly the best environment for healing – it has all sorts of natural elements that make it holistic – good for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Plan your next getaway on Tybee Island with us today… it’s good for your health!
