There is always a good excuse for a weekend away from reality. Life is stressful. The demands of our jobs, our families, our homes, and even our entertainment life can drain the reserves we have in which to deal efficiently with the daily struggles of life.
Sometimes, we just simply need a break. A weekend out on the ocean is just what the doctor ordered. Below are three reasons why a trip out on the water might be the best call you could make for yourself and your family.
Have You Ever Seen An Unhealthy Mermaid?
Okay, granted. The popular majority thinks mermaids are just a myth, but have you ever seen one that wasn’t healthy? We didn’t think so. The ocean, itself, carries a boatload of health benefits. It’s a natural anti-aging serum.
The salt content is great for helping wounds to heal quickly and is a natural source of magnesium. It keeps you breathing easy and the native source of iodine in the fresh air does wonders for thyroid health.
Along with all of this, just taking a dip in the ocean for a swim will help you work muscles you don’t actively access in any other form of exercise. When you look at it that way, being around and in the ocean is common sense.
Talk About Peaceful!
Have you ever found yourself in need of the deafening sound of silence? With people working more than the natural 40 hour week these days, just the vibrations that daily stress makes can heighten the tension in the air.
This leaves us with tight, achy muscles, short tempers, and a clouded thought process. Just sitting on your boat and losing yourself in the ripple of the waves can send you to a place of unknown solace.
The serenity of the sound of crashing white wash and the smell of the fresh air have the ability to blot out the transgressions of a stressful life against the delicate connection between mind and body. This leaves you calmer, more focused, and clears the cobwebs from the way you navigate through each situation presented to you.
Variety Is The Spice Of Life
One characteristic of a great vacation is having several fun options with which to fill your time. If you have ever been in a boat on the water, you know that there are a considerable amount of ways to appreciate your time spent there. If you enjoy swimming, take a leap off the front bow of the ship and doggy paddle until your little heart’s content.
This a great way to keep children entertained for hours and, as mentioned before, it’s a great form of exercise. Like to fish? There is nothing like the excitement of deep sea fishing. Taking a trip out on the lake? The peaceful sounds of nature will gladly sing to you while you enjoy the sun and a possible self caught catfish dinner.
You can also go water skiing, take an outing on a personal watercraft, or just appreciate a lazy day soaking up some rays. So, finish up the yacht painting, patch up the holes, and set your sails. Let the wind blow you into a world of needed variety, peace, and relaxation out on the water.
Face it. You need to escape for awhile. Use the benefits in this article the next time you make your case for a water bound getaway.
