Ever wonder why you feel so relaxed when you go to the beach? Many people, feeling burdened by job responsibilities, choose to visualize themselves by the sea in order to reduce stress levels.
It is scientifically proven that the sounds of nature, particularly birdsong, rain, wind in trees, and ocean waves help you recover from psychologically stressful events. Therefore, it is logical that people feel that the sound of the waves alleviates their stress and anxiety problems. If you add to that factors such as the relaxing visual effect of the swaying of the sea, you have the perfect place to escape your worries.
Among all the compounds necessary for human health, vitamin D is one that is not usually found in many foods. So how do you access this? Well, through the sun. Keep in mind that low levels of vitamin D are associated with health problems such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, and cancer. Therefore, it makes much more sense to choose to live near the sea and have special access to sunlight than to stay in the middle of the city surrounded by increasingly tall buildings that obstruct natural lighting.
