The Benefits of Living by the Sea – Clyde Property Ayr
According to research, living by the coast boots your mental wellbeing, improves your levels of happiness and can make you feel more relaxed. Scientists have found that the health benefits of living by the sea are so pronounced that there have been demands for more properties to be built along the British coastline so more people can benefit.
Researchers from the European Centre for Environment & Human Health at the University of Exeter looked at the data of over 48 million people in the UK to find how a location can affect their health. Findings showed that the more economically deprived a coastal area was, the more dramatic the health impact.
In addition, it was discovered that that the closer a person lived to the sea, the better their health. The sound of waves alters patterns in the brain, lulling a person into a relaxed state, helping to rejuvenate the mind and body. What’s more, a sea view is significantly associated with lower levels of psychological distress. According to the World Health Organsiation, mental health issues are currently the leading cause of disability worldwide and this is one way to combat stress and depression.
For those who venture into the sea, they are more alert and active.
Another study by the same researchers found that people who visited the seaside felt calm and relaxed, much more so than having visited a park or countryside.
If you would like to live by the sea and improve your mood, mental health and physical wellbeing, here are our top picks from Clyde Property Ayr:
