The white beach sand between your toes, feeling the sun kissing your shoulders, hearing the waves crashing onto the shore, and dipping into crystal clear waters. The beach is easily one of the most relaxing, exciting, and fun-filled places on earth. Does anyone really need to be convinced to take a trip to the beach?
There are many reasons why everyone should go to the beach, especially families, from creating lasting memories to just taking a break and getting some rest and relaxation, but there are also many health benefits that you may not be aware of. The beach and kids are a great combination, so on your next summer trip make it a point to discover why!
1. THE BEACH IS GOOD FOR YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH
The beach isn’t just fun under the sun. The health benefits of going to the beach are well worth the planning, packing, and probably the long drive. Individuals, who spend more time enjoying leisure activities, like vacations stress less. It helps lower blood pressure which leads to a healthier heart. As you may already know, natural environments such as the beach have restorative benefits that improve a person’s general health and well-being. Everyone can benefit from a little vitamin “sea”.
2. THE BEACH IS GOOD FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH
A Beach Vacation forces you to take a break from technology and lets you detox your mind. If your kids are in front of the screen every day, like mine are, the more reason there is to go to the beach as a family. Do not let technology take away the precious hours you should be spending with your kids. Swim, walk, run, and play on the sand with your family. Get outdoors and let nature stimulate your mind rather than a computer or cell phone.
3. THE BEACH IS GOOD FOR YOUR EMOTIONAL HEALTH
Life is always better at the beach, I always say. It’s a HAPPY place. It rejuvenates and relaxes you. The simplicity and rawness of it all is refreshing. If you want your kids to be less grumpy and cranky, take them to the beach. The beach is nature’s own playground, a place where kids can be kids. And lets face it, life is easier when the kids are happy.
Are you planning your next vacation now? You should definitely go to the beach and recharge your Mind, Body and your Soul. Take advantage of these benefits while creating happy and fond memories together with your family.
