“My life is like a stroll to the beach… as near to the edge as I can go.” — Henry David Thorough
The beach is so intensely captured in the human experience that there are thousands and thousands of years of art, music, and literature that use it as some form of reference for beauty. For some, there is nothing like basking in the sun as the water rushes and laps gently on your feet on the soft shore; for others, it is more about the splash and adventure in the water. Whatever the case may be, there is a way for everyone to enjoy the magic of the sun and sand.
We understand that current events might have you missing the beach. To help remind you of the benefits of spending time at a lovely beach resort, we have created this list of the benefits a trip to the beach can bring you. With no further ado, here they are:
1 – The healing power of sunlight
Provided you protect yourself from harmful UV rays with a good amount of sunblock, basking in the sun at the beach can be perfectly healthy. In fact, it is a necessity for humans to be exposed to some amount of sunlight. The rays stimulate the production of Vitamin D, which is essential to the health of your skin and bones.
Studies have also shown that it is linked to higher levels of serotonin production. Serotonin is the hormone that regulates happiness and elation. A trip to the beach could very well improve your mood.
Just make sure to consistently reapply a sunblock that is preferably 50 SPF to avoid sunburns and other harmful skin conditions.
2 – The restorative benefits of seawater
There are probably millions of paintings of coastlines and beaches out there—and for good reason. There is nothing like the sight, scent, and cool air that surrounds the water. What many don’t know is that the seawater itself has a number of health benefits.
Minerals in seawater are known to improve the elasticity of the skin. With proper protection from the sun, you might just notice your skin is tighter and more youthful. Sea salts have also been found to help people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
3 – The comfort of fresh air
The ocean breeze. We imagine those words evoke a specific feeling in a lot of people, and perhaps some memories at a beautiful beach resort. There is nothing like feeling the fresh and cool air fill your lungs. Few things can compare to the feeling of that feeling against your skin.
What better way to spend your holiday at the beach than reading a book under a beach umbrella as the breeze flows softly through the air?
With the hustle and bustle of daily enough, it is easy enough to feel stressed and isolated to incredible degrees. It is important, however, to take a break from all of this when you can. What better way to do this than to take a trip to some beautiful beaches when you finally get the chance to.
For your next beach trip, consider The Haad Tien Beach Resort. This beautiful beach resort in Koh Tao, Thailand has been developed as an amazing refuge from the stresses of everyday life.
