The whole point of taking a vacation is to relax, right? It’s considered a successful vacation if you return feeling rested and significantly less stressed.
But have you ever needed a vacation from your vacation?
Unfortunately, vacations are often stressful in and of themselves. Navigating the traffic in the city, finding ways to keep the kids occupied, getting everyone to agree on what they want to do, etc. You may come back more stressed than ever, wondering why you went in the first place.
That’s why you need a beach vacation for your next trip! Sand and sunshine are the ultimate cure for stress and the recipe for a relaxing vacation. Here’s why:
No Shirt. No shoes. No problem.
We’ve all heard the saying before, and it’s true! The beach has a magical quality to it that melts away your stress. Your only job when you’re at the beach is to stick your toes in the sand, lay back, and enjoy the sound of crashing waves. There’s a reason that every sound machine in the world has an “ocean” setting. It’s so peaceful!
You need to unplug from everyday life in to reduce stress. The beach is the perfect place to do that because it’s so removed from day-to-day responsibilities.
There’s something for everyone.
A beach vacation also means you won’t have the stress of everyone arguing about which activity they want. There’s something for everyone at the beach! You can lay on the beach and soak up the sun, or go for a walk. You could rent jet skis or go parasailing. You could search for seashells or even build a sandcastle. The beach is the perfect destination for everyone!
Sunshine has endless benefits.
Scientific research proves that sunshine has so many benefits. Sunshine boosts your mood, supports your immune system, lowers your risk of developing cancer, and supports bone health, to name a few. Most importantly though, it reduces stress!
This is especially important to consider if you live in an area that doesn’t get much sunshine. Individuals who live in areas with less sunshine are actually at risk for developing Seasonal Affective Disorder, a seasonal form of depression. A trip to the beach might just be the mood booster you need right now!
So whatever it is that’s causing you stress right now, consider the ultimate cure. A little sunshine and some sand between your toes go a long way in helping you unplug and de-stress.
