Advantages of living near the sea
The sea is for many people synonymous with tranquility. As Portugal is a country with hundreds of kilometers of coastline, living next to the beach is considered a privilege, due to the easy access to the sand on summer days, the ease of practicing water sports, stunning views, among other reasons.
The Mouzinho de Albuquerque Building offers this possibility: located just a few meters from Matosinhos beach, it is one of the most sought after locations today.
Thus, today we explore the daily benefits of living by the sea.
For starters, according to a study by the University of Exeter, the sounds of the sea activate the brain area associated with emotions, expanding well-being and self-knowledge. Simultaneously, the sound of the waves conveys a feeling of tranquility that reduces stress, one of the great diseases of the 21st century.
Still related to well-being and stress reduction, is the fact that the beach surroundings (flat, wide) are ideal for physical exercise, bringing benefits to both our mental and physical health. Matosinhos beach, for example, is a great space for walking, running, surfing, volleyball or beach soccer, etc.
The ocean is also one of the factors influencing the climate, through the absorption, storage and transport of heat. This results in a milder temperature all year round.
Additionally, the sea breeze is rich in iodine and acts positively on the thyroid and nose glands, expelling unwanted mucus more easily. Iodine has numerous health benefits, so being in contact with the sea breeze daily can be extremely positive.
In conclusion, choosing a house by the beach can have benefits for your health at various levels and help you live a more peaceful and stress-free life.
