A recent study conducted by the British Psychological Society found that the bracing seaside air had a more positive effect than the countryside or an urban park. In fact, the seaside was significantly more likely to create a feeling of well-being.
We can hardly say that we are surprised by this news after all there are not many nicer things in life than a seaside holiday. The study went on to say that the greatest sense of pleasure came from exercising beside the sea (not so sure about the exercise bit!) regardless of factors such as age, where they lived and who they were with when they were visiting.
This preference for the coast was found both in the general population and among walkers. Those who were travelling alone were particularly likely to get more enjoyment from the coast.
So, it’s official coastal cottages, seaside self catering and beach bungalows are good for you – tremendous, we have always said so.
