If you can manage to head to the beach one day soon you really should.
Studies from the U.S. and Britain have found hanging on the sand increases happiness, general well-being and even brain function. Also data from Japan found those who live in a home with a view of the ocean are calmer compared to those without a sea view.
Data published in Medical Daily reveals ocean water contains minerals that can help the body fight infection, and breathing in the salty sea air may help people sleep better at night.
If this still isn't enough to convince you to head to the beach, other research has shown listening to the sound of waves can help activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes relaxation and can even put you in a meditative-like state.
