Why you should be beside the seaside

"Increased views of blue space is significantly associated with lower levels of psychological distress.” - Professor Amber Pearson, Michigan State University

Sun, sand, water, cool sea breeze and the greenery around; just a thought of it gives such a wonderful and relaxed feeling. Most of us would agree that waking up to the rolling sound of waves and the panoramic view of the sea everyday would be like a dream come true.

So how about living close to a pristine beach?

There is no denying the fact that seaside properties come with a premium price tag compared to the property that is located far away from the coast. However, living by the seaside has its own benefit which will outweigh the high cost of the property. Various studies have shown that living by the ocean has numerous health benefits. Research shows that the soothing sound of waves changes the wave patterns in the human brain and takes a person to an amazingly relaxed state. Relaxation in such a way helps to rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul.

Seaside towns offer ample recreational activities such as surfing, sailing, swimming, sunbathing, fishing, kayaking and much more. These activities are not only enjoyable, but keep you active as well. Unlike inland areas where you stay indoors most of the time, in a seaside town with so many outdoor activities you spend more time outside. You are more likely to meet new people, make some great friends and make memories of a lifetime.

We all know for the fact that sun is the natural source of Vitamin D which is essential for our bodies and what coud be a better place to get that bright sunshine than the seaside. Moderate exposure to the sun can also help in reducing inflammation in the skin.

Another vital reason why seaside towns are better place to live is the coastal air which is different than the inland air. This is because coastal air is charged with healthy negative ions that allow the body to absorb oxygen more easily. This helps in decreasing the stress-levels and uplifts your mood naturally. Another health benefit is that the coastal air helps you to sleep more peacefully in the night as it creates a soothing effect.

The bottom line is that life on the seaside can be amazing and with several health benefits. So, make sure to consider Worthing’s beautiful coastline when buying a property.
