Good For Body, Mind, & Soul: Why You Need To Visit The Coast
Thinking of booking your next vacation? How about heading off to the coast for a few nights? There are some great coastal spots which are popular with travelers and tourists, including the Oregon coast and Manele Bay in Hawaii.
Lots of people head out to the coast to top up their tan or sip fruity cocktails when lounging on the soft sand. But did you know that there are also some reasons why visiting the coastline could do wonders for your health? It’s true! Some people believe that all that sun, sea, and sand is fantastic for mind, body, and soul. Here are some reasons why that is.
Did you know that lots of holistic experts believe that sea water has healing properties? There are many naturally occurring minerals in the water which are very good for the skin. After only a few minutes of bathing in the water, you should find that your skin is very smooth indeed! Just make sure that you don’t swallow too much seawater as it has an extremely high salt content!
Do you feel the need to switch off from modern life and unwind somewhere away from all the noise of the city? Then head to the coast! Peace and quiet is a very important part of holistic care, so there is no wonder that there are now many health centers and rehab facilities located on the coast. Holistic healing will give you the best chance of recovery from a variety of health conditions and complaints. And you won’t feel so bad while you are trying to recover on the coast as you will be surrounded by picturesque scenery!
All That Seafood
There is no doubt that your diet will certainly improve once you hit the coast. That is mainly down to the abundance of all that fresh seafood! Seafood is naturally low in fat and cholesterol so you will find that eating lots of fish and shellfish might bring down your blood pressure. Most seafood is also very high in Omega 3 fatty acids which can really help improve the condition of your brain and joints. It is also very high in protein, so you can eat as much as you want and not worry about filling up on carbs!
Fresh Sea Air
Have you ever heard that getting lots of fresh sea air can help you sleep? It’s an old wives’ tale, but there is actually some truth in it. Lots of people find that they sleep a lot better after a day at the beach, and that is all because of the negative hydrogen ions in the air. Those ions improve the body’s ability to absorb oxygen, which can promote sleep and also kills free radicals. It is these free radicals that are thought to cause cancers.
So, instead of a city break for your next vacation, why not plan a trip to the coast? You will come back extremely rejuvenated after a few days lounging on the beach!
