Benefits of Living By The Ocean

Benefits of Living By The Ocean

With 23 miles of beautiful unspoiled beaches with natural sand dunes, Hutchinson Island is the perfect destination for unsurpassed views and relaxation. Living by the ocean is more than just a good time; there are also many health benefits. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the ways that the beach can improve your wellbeing.


Vitamin D

At the beach, you get the benefits of Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin.” Vitamin D has been linked to helping improve autoimmune protection, increasing endorphins, lowering the risk of cancer, enhancing bone health, and more. But, don\’t forget to apply SPF when you’re spending time in the sun.


Ocean Air Healing Qualities

According to the Lung Institute, ocean air can improve lung function, thin mucus and reduce coughing in individuals with lung disease and/or breathing issues. Ocean air also contains negatively charged hydrogen ions that help absorb oxygen and balance out serotonin levels, resulting in more energy and diminished depression.


Better Night’s Rest

The noise of the waves is a type of white noise that can help to “de-stimulate” your brain and slow down your central nervous system. In a study done by the National Trust in the United Kingdom, they found that people who spent time at the beach slept ~47 minutes longer than those who weren\’t at the beach.


Less Screen Time

Too much screen time has been shown to cause chronic neck and back problems, anxiety, and impaired cognitive function. Getting away from it for a few hours of the day is a great thing. Studies have shown that spending time by bodies of water can counter the dulling effect of too much screen time. This is because the water improves your mood and opens your mind. 


Promotes An Active Lifestyle

Whether you’re swimming, surfing, or walking on the sand, the beach encourages an active lifestyle. Research actually shows that walking on the beach is a better workout than walking on concrete since you have to work harder to move through the sand, even if you\’re moving at the same speed. Studies have also found that swimming in the ocean provides a better workout than a pool, as the waves and the tide provide more resistance.

Hutchinson Island features miles of pristine beaches and is a perfect place to unwind and soak up the sunshine. As an Ouanalao resident, you’ll have access to beautiful beaches, along with a world-class resort lifestyle. Learn more about us, here.
