Have you ever heard someone say “Oh my gosh, I just got back from the a day at the beach and it was horrible, now I’m more stressed than ever!”? We haven’t either. Our team at Atlantic Beach Clubs knows what most humans know, and that is that we naturally gravitate toward the beach to experience some of the most enjoyable natural features that the earth has to offer. And while we may not be able to pinpoint the exact reasons why we feel so happy and relaxed after a day at the beach, we know that it truly does have many positive effects on humans. Here are three for you to consider!

Benefits of the Beach

1. Stress Relief

The number one benefit for hitting the beach is stress relief. As soon as you step foot into the sun and onto the sand, you start to feel the calming effects washing over you. The combination of the sun and the waves works to completely relax your body and free you from daily stress. We know that the sound of the waves has a calming effect, and that is why they are so often chosen for sleep machines. Also, light (photo) therapy is often prescribed by doctors and therapists to help patients with anxiety and stress.

2. Opportunities for Exercise

It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to lose weight, stay in shape, or just get rid of some pent up energy, the beach has everything you need to stay active. You can head out to the water to surf or swim, or you can stay on land and walk along the beach collecting shells. Walking on sand is actually quite difficult and utilizes more muscles than walking on pavement.

3. Adventures

The beach is also a wonderful place to try something you haven’t done before. If you are looking for a way to experience the thrill of the water, why not race around the shoreline on a jet ski or take the family on a banana boat ride. Both options offer a fun and unique way to enjoy the water and stay active on the beach.

Experience the benefits of the beach yourself with a trip to Fort Lauderdale this winter. Our team at Atlantic Beach Clubs is here for your jet ski and banana boat rental needs! Contact us today at (954) 543-2938 to find out more, or to get a jump start on making reservations.
