It’s no secret families at Bayside appreciate an active lifestyle; enjoying visits to the beach, playing golf and tennis, paddle boarding at The Point, or getting fit at the fitness center. It also doesn’t come as a surprise that life seems simpler when you live near the ocean. And the experts agree; the benefits of living close to a beach are plentiful, especially for residents in communities like Bayside!
There have been countless studies that suggest simply living near the ocean can be better for your health – here’s how:
Open Ocean Air
Fresh air does the body good, there’s no doubt about that. And, when you live near the ocean, the air just seems a little more refreshing (this is our own observation, of course). Plus, who doesn’t love the trademark salt air ever-present in beach towns like Fenwick Island
Somehow, a day by the ocean melts our stresses away. (A day out on the Bayside golf course or lounging poolside at the Sun Ridge Tennis & Recreation Center can have a similar effect!) Of course, living life with less stress is bound to have a positive impact on your mental health and well-being. Who would hate that?
Regular exercise is instrumental to heart health, and mixing up your activities can make it more fun for those of us who are tired of the same routine. By nature, beach-day activities are aerobic and can get your heart pumping. Ever tried to jog in the sand? It’s harder than it looks! And of course, surfing, boogie boarding and splashing around in the waves are all great forms of exercise too.
Having this outlet for physical fitness nearby (for Bayside residents, the beach is less than four miles away!) ensures that families of all ages can enjoy being active, contributing to a healthy lifestyle.
