Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside – and that is a matter of fact. There have been a large number of scientific and psychological studies that have deduced that human beings are naturally drawn to the ocean. Human beings that live beside the sea are generally much happier than those that live inland; particularly those in big cities.
We are a complicated bunch but there are a few simple things that we can do in order to drastically improve our mental and physical health; the most important of which is reconnecting with the natural environment from whence we came.
There is absolutely no denying that the fresh sea breeze in your lungs and the warm, golden sand between your toes is one of the most soothing and naturally calming feelings in the world. There is something about gently stroking through the fresh, glassy ocean waves while the sun beats down above you that will render you feeling invigorated! Why do you think so many companies use the ocean for their advertising campaigns? Particularly beer! It’s because the seaside is easily associated with joy, rejuvenation and relaxation.
