Though you likely don't need any additional reasons to spend a vacation at the beach, here are 5 reasons a day at the beach is good for your health:
The saltwater is great for your body.
Saltwater heals small nicks and scrapes while a long soak in it can do wonders for your muscles and joints. It also offers a great exfoliant for your skin which means you’ll be able to get rid of that top layer of dry skin that’s been itching you for days!
You’ll get to soak up some Vitamin D.
A good intake of Vitamin D is great for your skin and overall health which means a day at the beach provides the perfect way to soak up the sun. However, be sure you’re regularly reapplying sunscreen throughout the day because too much sun can be a bad thing!
You’ll likely go for a walk.
While spending time at the beach, it’s hard to resist a walk along the shore which is a good thing! Going for a walk along the beach will promote strong blood flow, loosen up tight muscles and overall add some energy back to your body.
A beach nap is inevitable.
As long as you’re not squeezed amongst a crowd of kids, you’ll likely find yourself dozing off to the sound of waves and gulls chirping. A nice nap a great energy booster and is a great way to reset your body.
The beach works as a stress reliever.
Not only do the sound of the waves work as a great stimulate for a nap, it also works alongside the warm ocean breeze and overall landscape to produce some much-needed stress relief.
