Feeling stressed? Maybe a little time at the beach is all you really need! A 2013 German study entitled “I’m Always Entirely Happy When I Am Here” (that’s right) found that being outdoors, especially by the water, truly helps us to recover from stress. But … did we really need a study to tell us that? Something just feels magical as we walk along the edge of the water, our feet in the sand. Our perspective grows, our stress and cares lighten. So, the next time you’re feeling life is taking it’s toll on you or a loved one, head to the beach and let it’s magic heal the soul.
