This is probably due to the fact that beaches seem to have a calming effect on people because it helps them loosen up.

Also, the beach is proved to have many therapeutic, physical and psychological benefits to the brain and body.

Recently, another supporting research has found those who lived closer to the coast reported better overall health.

The following are the ways in which beaches affect humans positively;

  1. We react positively when near the water- Many experts suggest that our pull to the beach and water is something that was learned over time and is hardwired within us, besides even when we were all just fetuses, we lived in watery substances in the womb.

  3. Being at the beach relaxes our brains- The Huffington Post says water is calming to look at and makes your brain mindful — where it is both relaxed and taking in the sensory input of the water. It also notes mindfulness comes with a plethora of physical and psychological benefits, like better sleep, less stress, anxiety and depression and improved focus.
