Leaving near the ocean is a dream of many! They think about walking on the beach in the evenings, going surfing in the early mornings, and, perhaps, fishing on the piers. You have to admit, that sounds like a pretty great life. Yet, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go for it if that is what you really want in life. In fact, there are a few advantages of living near the water that you ought to consider:

You Have Better Recreation

With the water close at hand, you can relax and sun on the beach anytime you want. Along with this comes opportunities for surfing, boating, fishing, and swimming just for starters. For more excitement, you may find that activities like para-sailing, wind-surfing, or diving become a passion. There's no better way to spend a hot summer than out in the water.

De-Stress and Sleep Well

Start with the view. There is nothing in the city that will compare to the sunrise over the ocean. Even during the day, the birds, waves, beaches, and even distant sailboats will give you instant peace and contentment. At the water's edge, there's always fresh, cooler air and no traffic pollution. Cleaner air and lower stress means better oxygen absorption and more balanced serotonin levels. This helps improve your mood and get a good night's sleep.

Live Healthier

In addition to reduced stress, which is a health benefit in itself, more sunshine means more vitamin D. This is an essential nutrient for bone health, the immune system, and fighting off disorders like arthritis and Crohn's disease. There are pills available, but the body doesn't store vitamin D. Exposure to sunlight naturally prompts the body to manufacture vitamin D. Most people need 10 minutes a day at a minimum.

Preferred Seafood

Seafood is not only delicious, it's healthy. It's rich in antioxidants, minerals, and heart-healthy omega-3 oils. If you like seafood, you probably know that frozen seafood can be a dubious proposition, and restaurants charge top dollar for seafood that may not be so fresh. When you get familiar with the seaside markets and populace, you can find the best bargains on the freshest seafood. You can even catch your own.

Altogether, life at the shore is healthier, more fun, and very peaceful. It's a dream vacation that never has to end if you own beachside property. If the above information has convinced you that you need to live near the ocean, get in contact with a real estate agent, such as Adams, Cameron and Co., Realtors, who has connections with Oceanside properties. Your dream can definitely become a reality!
