Stress relief: sounds on the beach encourage healthy sleep patterns because of their relaxing repetitive noise!
Vitamin D: When your body gets sun exposure, your skin uses the UVB rays to manufacture vital Vitamin D! It’s used to support immune, lung, and cardiovascular systems!
Fresh Air: Fresh salt air is full of negative ions that boost your ability to absorb oxygen. These negative ions also lift your emotional state!
Exercise: You can exercise anywhere but a walk on the beach is more enjoyable, right? Well, believe it or not, you’ll burn almost TWICE as many calories with a walk on the beach than on a solid surface!
