Did you know the azure blue water of the ocean can rejuvenate the mind? Psychologists have named it the ‘blue space’. The tranquil water of the vast ocean allows visitors to pause for a moment, take a deep breath and inhale the fresh air rich in sea salt. Gazing at the ocean for a long time would let you unplug and calm your mind. In fact, the magical feeling of the cold ocean water touching the feet is the best medicine to cure the daily stress.

Sunlight is a natural anti-depressant that enhances the serotonin levels and elevates the mood. This is the reason why people are happier in the warmer months when compared to the gloomy cold season. Direct exposure to the sunlight has a positive effect on an individual's appetite, sleep as well as stress. Thus, you tend to eat a lot and sleep more on your beach vacation.

3. Get Your Dose Of Vitamin D

Vitamin D, also known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, is an essential nutrient that our body needs. It plays an important role in the proper functioning of the immune system as well as the healthy development of bones and teeth. Unfortunately, a very little of this nutrient is absorbed from the food that we eat. But the good news is Vitamin D production is stimulated when the body is directly exposed to sunlight.

It is a known fact that salt water is the ideal remedy for healing a sore or a cut. This is because the water has antifungal and antibacterial properties that help in cleansing the wound. Not only the sea water makes an excellent choice for external infection but also minimises internal infections. It contains iodine that boosts the functioning of the thyroid gland which in turn promotes a healthy immune system.  

6. Get Moving

Going to a beach gives you ample opportunities to engage in physical activities, be it walking, playing soccer, swimming, yoga or surfing. When you feel lazy, simply walk around and savour the sight. It is said, walking on the beach is always a better workout than walking on the roads. If you swim for fun, it can also help in burning calories and tone your muscles. And if you love playing soccer, then why not with a gorgeous view!

7. Natural Exfoliation

When you walk on the sand, numerous nerve endings get awakened and you feel great. This is because; the sand is a natural exfoliant and peels of the dead skin cells from the body. The dead skin often causes clogged pores leading to pimples and blackheads. Natural exfoliation can keep the skin healthy, clean and rejuvenated. So, take a walk on the sun-splashed beach and get rid of the unwanted dead skin cells.

8. Promotes Skin Elasticity

The ocean is filled with anti-ageing ingredients that help in preserving skin elasticity. As you grow old, the skin tends to lose its suppleness and becomes less elastic. Saltwater therapy is not really a bad idea because it can keep the skin tight and supple. Obviously, it will not show immediate results like cosmetic intervention but it will take its own time and aid in the process.

9. Time To Meditate And Reflect

A beach vacay allows you to spend some moments of tranquillity. It gives you ample time to meditate and evaluate yourself. You can read a book that you have always wanted to, review your goals or set new ones and ponder over your dreams and aspirations in life. This is the best time to think how far you have come in life and answer the questions by the sea.

10. Explore The Ocean

A beach vacation lets you explore the ocean in your own way. You can enjoy a leisure stroll along the coastline, embark on a boat tour or gaze at the emerald water for hours. This is the perfect opportunity to take a break from your mundane life and de-clutter your mind. You will also not be bothered by the usual cacophony of the city and other noise that is a part of your routine life. You will only hear the chirping of the birds and the gentle sound of the waves while drinking your favourite cocktail.

11. Bond Better With Friends And Family

There is nothing as therapeutic as an extended family time by the ocean. Your life slows down and there is no need to attend phone calls and check emails. Thus, it is the ideal getaway for couples and families to stay undistracted and spend some quality time together. No wonder, a beach holiday actually helps you to reconnect with the people who matter. 

12. Helps You Get Sound Sleep

A long day at the beach is the solution to insomnia. The salty water in the sea contains magnesium that is absorbed by the skin. This, in turn, calms the nervous system and you are able to sleep soundly. So, it is always a good idea to spend a few hours on the beach.

There is indeed something about the ocean where you can seek solace and reconnect with yourself. The limitless horizon, the vastness of the sea and spectacular surrounding will improve physical well-being and leave you at peace. Thus, you have a better attitude towards life and you are ready to take up new challenges.
