Living or visiting the shoreline has so many positive benefits. Not only your tan but your mind and physical wellness. It is impossible to not be in a good mood by the shoreline. Oxygen air quality is more clean with air consistently switching out from the open oceans. It leaves you feeling relief and refreshed, almost like a reset. Just visiting the shore on a daily basis will improve anyone's overall well being, especially when you can share it with someone who makes you smile.
For some of us the convenience of a daily dip or surf check is more then we could ever ask for. When visiting Jacksonville Beach we met up with Kelsey & Jared, to experience their daily ocean visits. It was awesome waking up with some tea to start the day with Tanner contstantly wanting mom's attention. Weather they walk, bike or skate they visit the fresh salty air at least once a day. Hanging with these two made us smile. Kelsey is one who can't get enough salt therapy.
"I'm happiest living a block from the ocean in our tiny beach shack, it's apart of my daily routine. I walk out there everyday to either see the sunrise or sunset & search for surf. SURF OR SUN, YOU GOTTA SOAK IT UP. It's my salt therapy and I would be insane without it. : )"
Great news, salt in the ocean water preserves tryptamine, serotonin and melatonin levels in the brain, which aid in diminishing depression. JFK once said, "All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came.”
Here's some photos from hanging out with these two salty souls. We couldn't thank you enough mother ocean, for all your saltiness. Our greatest advice... Get to a beach near you. We highly recommend it. : ) #sharethevibe
