Benefits of a Beach Vacation

6158

Taking vacations is known to be good for you mental health. We all need to take a break from our everyday lives and jobs once in a while and treat ourselves to a relaxing escape. With the summer season upon us, spending a day soaking up the sun on the beach sounds like a pretty appealing way to spend a vacation. Here are some of our favorite health benefits of a beach vacation:

  1. Improve your mood: Spending time in the sunshine can increase your brain’s production of serotonin, the anti-depressant “feel-good” hormone that your body naturally creates. Also, soaking up some vitamin D can reduce the risk of heart problems.
  2. Get active: Renting a beach house near the ocean provides you with plenty of opportunity to take an invigorating morning run, or a relaxing evening stroll. Running on a sandy surface even tones your legs more than running on pavement! Bring your yoga mat and practice your poses on the patio while the sun rises over the ocean. Allow yourself some freedom to disconnect with your busy life, and reconnect with your body.
  3. Detoxify: The power of the ocean to cleanse and revitalize has been referenced for centuries. It has even been proven that the high levels of iodine, magnesium, and potassium in its salty water can help fight infection, detoxify the body, and replenish skin.

So don’t put it off any longer! There are plenty of reasons to get yourself to the beach, and renting a vacation home allows you to live just as comfortably as you would in your own home. Contact us today to find the perfect getaway home.
