Why You Need A Beach Vacation

Posted on: April 13th, 2017 by Brian McLaughlin No Comments

Need an excuse to hit the beach? Probably not! But studies show that the ocean helps people feel calm, happy, and stable. Even before the 1800’s, physicians would “prescribe” patients with vacations to the beach to help with depression, anxiety, arthritis, and more. Here are a few more reasons why you should take some time off and enjoy a little fun in the sun.

The beach is a stress relief. Serotonin – a key hormone for relaxation and happiness – is immediately released once your feet hit the sand. Also, the sound and visuals alone are soothing and peaceful.

It improves your sleeping habits. If you suffer from insomnia, the beach is the perfect natural remedy. The sun (combined with your lowered stress levels) will help regulate the hormones in your body, which makes it much easier to get a tranquil, deep sleep.

It provides you with an abundance of vitamin D. One of the most essential vitamins in our diet is vitamin D. And luckily, you can absorb your daily dose directly through your skin by spending just 10 minutes in the sun!

The beach can get you in shape. The beach is the spot to help you get back (or stay) in shape – you can also even get rid of some pent up energy. Go for a walk or a run, or head to the water for a quick swim or surfing session.

Feeling the itch to travel to a beach getaway? If so, come visit Pacific Grove and Monterey, California – a spot for relaxation, sightseeing, and social activity. During your visit, stay at our tranquil hotel – the Butterfly Grove Inn. To make a reservation, give us a call at 831-250-8191.
