Benefits of the Beach – Part 1

Cape Kiwanda – Pacific City, Oregon

Would you rate a trip to the beach as one of your favorite vacation getaways? If you said ‘Yes,’ you’re not alone. Just a quick google search will prove that, by and large, most people gravitate to the beach when they are picking a spot to relax and unwind. So what’s behind this gravitational pull of the ocean? 

Well, studies show that time spent by the ocean is beneficial for a lot of reasons. In an MSUToday article, researcher Amber L. Pearson was the first to find a link between health and the visibility of water, which the researchers call blue space. In her findings, Amber shares that “Increased views of blue space is significantly associated with lower levels of psychological distress. However, we did not find that with green space.”

While you might not need more reasons to book your next beach getaway, we hope improving your mental health gives you another reason to pack your bags and head to the Oregon Coast this summer.
