How living near the ocean can improve your mood

It’s no secret that spending time near the ocean can improve your mood. But did you know that living near the ocean can have an even bigger impact? Recent studies have shown that people who live close to the ocean are less likely to suffer from depression and anxiety. So if you’re looking for a way to improve your mood, consider moving closer to the sea!

Do you ever feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? Or that you can’t get away from your work even when you’re on vacation? If so, you’re not alone. A lot of people feel this way. But what if there was a place where you could go to relax and de-stress without having to leave the country? And what if that place also came with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world? Well, there is such a place, and it’s called coastal living. Coastal living can refer to anywhere near the ocean, but we’re specifically talking about places like Queensland, Western Australia, and New South Wales. I live on the coast in Queensland, and every day for the last few weeks, I’ve found myself down there as much as I can. You, the covids brought in the working from home on masse to large organizations, including mine. I also didn’t have a car, as my last one was a write-off after some dhead rammed into it (RIP baby.) However, I am now the owner of a shiny second-hand Rav4, so as much as I can I drive down the road to my local. Bay. Raby Bay. Feet in the sand, hot sun blazing 23 degrees in the middle of an Australian winter, almost swimming in the ocean, fully clothed. Bunking off work, cos it’s all drama and micro-management, I come here and get happy. The happies I feel on the inside make me feel better that I can handle the work drama, as I almost quit, it was so bad. To see what I’m raving on about, you can check out my latest vid here, and while I can’t promise that living near the ocean will cure all your ills, it certainly improved my mood and outlook on life. If you don’t live near an ocean, find a park or nature reserve to visit every day. Take a walk in the sun (even during winter) and see if you feel more positive as a result. What have you got to lose? Give it a try! How do you find your happy in nature?
