While we all can just spend all our time sitting in an office, typing away at documents, our bodies need a break from time to time. Think of it like a machine. The more you put it under work, the quicker it is going to start degrading. The only way to keep it up and running is to stop it and carry out some repairs.
Our bodies are like machines. If we constantly work without a break, we hurt it. Our brains get tired, we start to develop problems, and we overall lose our sense of happiness and satisfaction. What better way to repair this machine, recharging the body and mind and helping us feel better than by visiting the beach? A beach is a place where we can sit back and relax, forgetting all of life’s cares, reorganizing what’s in our mind, and helping us to enjoy the clarity of thought. The beach is like a repair shop for the mind, soul, and body.
With that said, here are three reasons your body needs to hit the beach:
While you might be enjoying vitamin D from your supplements or fortified drinks, there is no better source of this than the mighty sun. At the beach, there is plenty of sunlight, meaning that you can enjoy lots of vitamin D. With this special vitamin, your bones become stronger, your skin looks younger, and your mental health improves significantly.
Of course, there is also a risk when it comes to exposing yourself to the sun. It can cause damage to the skin and, in severe cases, cancer. Because of this, many people are forced to rely on sunscreen to keep their bodies safe. Unfortunately, this sunscreen also blocks the light that promotes the body to produce vitamin D. With that said, to maximize this benefit, ensure that you are only exposed to the sun without sunscreen for ten to fifteen minutes. After that, sunscreen should be applied.
While the sun can make you look younger, the sand can do the same, too! Apart from massaging your foot while you walk on the beach, pampering the thousands of nerve endings, the sand also acts as an exfoliant. In other words, it helps remove the dead and ugly skin cells from your skin and allows the younger, more vibrant skin to show.
Exfoliants keep your skin healthy, clean, and young, perfect for anyone who spent hundreds of hours indoors, accumulating dead skin cells and clogged pores.
The sea is also attributed to helping you look young. When you swim in the ocean, it helps tighten your skin, meaning that any wrinkles that contribute to that old look are gotten rid of. What you’re left with is a tighter skin that makes you look like you’ve lost a few years.
The sea also contains all sorts of minerals like iodine and magnesium that all contribute to your health. How so? They help strengthen your immune system, so you can fight off diseases much more effectively, allowing you to enjoy a healthier body.
The sun, sand, and sea provide your body with benefits you cannot ignore. From looking young to maintaining health, there is so much to be gained from merely visiting the beach. With that in mind, schedule your next vacation to a nearby, or even far away, beach. Not only are you treating your body with all that’s good but giving yourself the chance to relax and have fun.
