It’s no secret that we have long enjoyed the reinvigorating feeling of being by the sea, taking in a lungful of sea air and feeling the sand between our toes. Recent census data has also revealed that people who live near the sea are much happier than those who stay inland.
As it turns out, a stay by the seaside in a sublime hotel in Norfolk —can offer a much needed health boost, according to a study from the University of Exeter. Researchers say it’s pretty evident that city living can directly affect anyone’s mental and physical well-being and completely undermine it, more specifically due to the release of stress hormones and lack of exercise. In stark contrast, merely getting a whiff of the seaside completely counteracts these harms.
