The Health Benefits of Living Near the Sea

Several studies showed scientifically what for many was evident: seawater does well and if it is close, much more.

Professionals from the University of Michigan demonstrated that the proximity of the sea is directly related to the reduction of psychological stress, partly because the environment encourages the regular practice of physical activities, which are very important for mental and physical health.

In addition, the air from the coast improves the respiratory system and is especially recommended for people suffering from diseases linked to asthma, bronchitis and various types of allergies.

It also increases the chances of exposure to the sun, which favors the production of vitamin D, strengthening the immune system, and if that were not enough, it raises the levels of endorphins, reduces the risk of cancer and improves circulation and bone health.

Another study from the University of Exeter, (United Kingdom), brings to all these tangible benefits those that have to do with the impalpable: the sound of the sea activates the prefrontal cortex of the brain, an area associated with emotions and self-reflection, and thus increases the potential for well-being and the capacity for self-knowledge.
