The Health Benefits of Living beside the Beach

Everyone dreams of living beside the beach. The relaxing sound of ocean waves, the vastness of sea and sky, and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets are enough for you to long for the upcoming summer. However, with real estate properties for sale in areas such as Myrtle Beach, you can now live closer to a tropical paradise, where you can enjoy the beach any day of the year.

The appeal for properties near or by the beach can be attributed to the beauty and calmness the ocean can exude, yet there can also be a scientific explanation. For one, those who lived near the coastal region were found to have better health than those living at least 30 miles from the beach, according to a study published in the July 2012 issue of Health and Place journal.

While the researchers for this study have yet to determine this correlation, another study, this time conducted by the European Centre for Environment and Human Health saw that the coastal environment could be an effective stress reliever. Moreover, other studies found that, when presented or shown a blue environment, a person’s mood tends to improve, compared with looking at a green or an urban environment.

Undeniably, living near the beach can have a positive effect on your health, not to mention the joy of having a picturesque view everyday upon waking up.
