5 SURPRISING HEALTH BENEFITS OF GOING TO THE BEACH
Located on an undisturbed stretch of beachfront property on Monterey Bay, The Sanctuary Beach Resort has some prime leisure real estate. In addition to general enjoyment, there are also major health benefits to spending time at the beach.
GETTING RID OF STRESS
There’s a reason that the beach is the a place where people just lay down and do nothing. The splash of the waves, ocean-breeze, and beating sun all combine to make it a serene, relaxing destination. Considering that anxiety and stress are bad for your heart, we recommend making your way out to The Sanctuary Beach Resort for some beachfront therapy.
SOAKING UP TONS OF VITAMIN D
It’s widely believed that spending just an hour outside on a sunny day can supply a human with their daily dose of Vitamin D. At the beach, where sunbathing is a wildly popular practice, you can enjoy the many benefits of the vitamin D including stronger bones, healthier teeth, and helping your immune system function properly.
THE BEACH OFFERS ALL OF THE BENEFITS OF EXERCISE
The beach on Monterey Bay at The Sanctuary Beach Resort is the perfect natural fitness center. Take a swim on the bay, which offers calmer waves that are easier to cut through, and take part in one of the world’s few exercises that works every muscle in the body. Also, a jog in the sand can help improve lower body strength, working your ankles and calves way better than any treadmill.
SAND IS A NATURAL EXFOLIANT
Guests of The Sanctuary Beach Resort can truly take care of their skin, and relax at our own Serenity Spa. In addition to all of the different scrubs and exfoliants available there, you can also head down to the beach and stick your feet in the sand. Sand is a natural exfoliant, so it will help shed dead skin.
A BETTER NIGHT’S SLEEP
Getting a proper amount of sleep every night is crucial to maintaining a healthy body and mind. This piece from The Daily Mail explains that the sea air is stocked with healthy negative ions, which accelerate our ability to absorb oxygen. This effect in addition to the relaxing qualities of the beach leads to better sleeps, especially when enjoyed in one of our oceanfront cottages.
