You really need your vitamin sea.

Sunbathing on the beach helps our cardiovascular health and increases our defenses. UV rays stimulate serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that is related to well-being. So while you sunbathe on the beach, you improve your mood.

The vastness of the ocean, which psychologists refer to as “blue space,” can help to calm our minds.

We are biologically designed to fully experience the beach.

Almost all of us work in a fluorescent-lit office. I bet at least half of us never leave the office for lunch. Draw your own conclusions to see how concerning this is.

We’re talking about going a long time without getting any fresh air.

If this is your reality, you need to experience the sweet and salty aroma, fresh breeze, and sunlight that you can only get on vacation at the beach.

Although most people claim that going to the beach exhausts them, I believe that it gives them the gift of total relaxation. When I get home from the beach and  this happens to me after I take a shower.  I fall asleep almost immediately after placing my head on the pillow, and Mmmm, the sensation is nice.

This genuine sense of relaxation enables us to return to our daily lives with a renewed desire to pursue our objectives and a clear mind.
