If you were wondering how to justify another summer vacation on one of the most beautiful islands in the world, have you heard of all the health benefits of sea water? Not only is spending time on the beaches in Mykonos incredibly fun and relaxing, but being next to the sea water is also therapeutic for your health and overall well-being.
Did You Know That Salt Can Heal You? Let’s Learn About the Health Benefits of Sea Water
Mykonos is known for its crazy and legendary nightlife, which is why your first association when we mention salt and the Island of the Winds together may be tequila shots, but that’s not on today’s topic. We’ll actually be delving into the magical properties of the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
Have you ever noticed how relaxed and refreshed you feel every time you’re by the seaside? The benefits of sea salt water have been studied for centuries, and while there are still some effects even science can’t fully explain, there are some health benefits we’re certain of. So, here are just a few advantages of spending time in or by the sea you should know about before your next visit to Mykonos.
Seawater Helps Reduce Stress and Anxiety Levels
Everyone goes on a nice summer holiday to spend time by the beach and relax, but did you know that it’s been scientifically proven that seawater reduces stress and anxiety levels? It contains high levels of magnesium, which helps soothe and relax your mind and body.
Whether you’re swimming in the water, listening to the sound of the waves, or simply walking barefoot in the sand, breathing in the fresh salty air, you will notice you’re feeling calm and relaxed, almost in a meditative state. Being by the seaside helps your body produce endorphins, powering you with good vibes and energy and simultaneously reducing stress and the need for antidepressants.
It Boosts Your Overall Immune System and Improves Your Blood Circulation
There are countless ways the sea can help you improve your immune system and prevent illness. The water is known as a natural antibiotic, as it’s filled with all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients the human body needs to function properly, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, boron, and so on. And there is no need to drink the seawater directly, simply inhaling the salty air will give your immune system a boost.
And, of course, being on the beach is a natural source of vitamin D, which most people are lacking these days. Besides improving your immune system, the sea has the magical ability to improve your blood circulation as well. Not only are you constantly moving around in the water, but the change in temperature when you’re in and out of the water is excellent for your circulatory system.
Sea Air and Water Are the Best Protection for Your Respiratory System
If you have the feeling that you breathe better as soon as you come in contact with sea air, you’re right, and it’s not just because the air is fresher and cleaner. It’s also due to the fact that the salt content of the water completely clears your sinuses. Saltwater has been proven time and again to improve the respiratory system and prevent and alleviate all kinds of respiratory problems, such as asthma, and that’s why so many parents rush to bring their children to the beach.
No Beauty Treatments Can Heal Your Skin Like Seawater Can
The vacation glow is very real, and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know how amazing saltwater is for your skin. If you always look back at your vacation Instagram photos thinking you’ve never looked better, it’s probably because your skin looked airbrushed.
The salty water of the sea has so many skin benefits – it completely detoxifies not just your body but your skin as well. All the minerals and nutrients will cleanse your skin and clear up any imperfections you may have. However, the benefits of seawater for your skin go far beyond just clearing up acne – saltwater has been proven to help with treating more serious skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Just Being Around Sea Air Improves Sleep
Have you ever noticed how you sleep like a baby every time you get back to your luxury Mykonos villa rental after a long beach day? Even if it’s just a midday nap before going out to some of the hottest clubs in Mykonos, you must have noticed that you have the best sleep of your life on summer vacations. It’s been scientifically proven that being by the seaside and breathing in the fresh air helps you fall asleep faster, reach a deeper sleep, and get fully rested.
