Morning Beach Walk

Morning Beach Walk

Let’s talk about the benefits of beach walks.

Scientific research has confirmed that among the benefits of walking are : lowering the risk of heart disease, lowering blood pressure and LDL, and improving heart function. Walking helps make your heart more efficient and can also help reduce stress, lose weight, improve your immune system, and reduce the risk of cancer.

Natural light at the beach also activates the synthesis of dopamine in the brain, a molecule that, while often associated with happiness, is actually a motivational molecule that promotes happy activities.

Walking on the beach helps release enkephalins, hormones that reduce pain and increase happiness, creating an overall sense of well-being and positivity. Encephalitis also act as natural pain relievers, helping to relieve chronic, chronic pain.

Regular walking can reduce the levels of estrogen produced by the body. That’s why regular exercise, including walking, can lower the risk of breast cancer. Breast cancer is a cancer associated with high levels of estrogen.

Good for brain health.

Evidence from scientists who scanned ocean sounds and traffic noise showed that the prefrontal cortex area of the brain is activated when hearing ocean sounds.

This is the command and management center of the brain, closely related to intelligence, and its functions include memory, judgment, analysis, thinking, and operation.

Negative ions produced by ocean waves can relieve stress.

The peaceful feeling on the beach can cause molecular changes in our bodies.

Negative ions are known as the “vitamins in the air.”

Because the waves of the ocean produce negative ions, negative ions speed up our body’s ability to absorb oxygen. Negative ions also balance levels of serotonin, a chemical produced by the body related to mood and stress.

This is why scientists associate sandy beaches with spiritual energy and overall health and happiness. Air containing more negative ionized water molecules is generally believed to make living organisms feel comfortable and happy. It may even help us sleep better.
