If you’ve ever been to California or Florida, you probably know that the beach scene is the place to be! Everyone there always looks to be having a good time, whether they are frolicking in the ocean, or simply lying down on the sand. And the truth of the matter is that the beach not only provides you with a fun time, but also has other side benefits that promote your overall health and well-being. There are two main reasons why a trip to the beach is such a great idea in this respect, and lucky for you, we’ll be discussing exactly those reasons today!

The first reason is simple: it is a great way to relax and unwind. There is nothing else in the world like just relaxing on the beach, taking in the cool salty air, feeling the warmth of the sun touch your skin, and just staring out into the beautiful vast ocean. It really does quite a number on your emotional state, not to mention your soul. This is especially the case for people who don’t get out to the beach very often! Being cramped in an office all day or doing nothing after work but going on errands and heading straight home can really take a toll on your emotional health and wellbeing. Getting out and enjoying the simplicity of a beach day will rejuvenate you and leave you feeling alive again!

Also, despite what others may say, there is absolutely nothing wrong with just sprawling out on a beach chair or beach towel and letting the hours pass you by! A little relaxation never hurt anyone, and the truth is that everyone deserves a bit of relaxation time every now and then anyway!

The second reason to go to the beach is a bit more psychological. You see, when you go to the beach, what are you typically wearing? If you said beach clothes, you are right on the money! But for women specifically, the beach is the perfect time to bring out a sexy bikini and show off their physical beauty naturally. Because bikinis naturally allow you to show off a lot of skin, they are the perfect way to look, and perhaps more importantly feel sexy! In addition, because bikinis are totally the norm when it comes to beach wear, you can flaunt your sexiness to the world without coming across as overly vain by the other beachgoers. And even if you think your body isn’t bikini-worthy and you really cannot bear to wear a “sexy” bikini out in public, there are plenty of other one-piece bathing suits that exude sexiness! Select one of those for the time being, and hopefully you eventually work your way up to a sexy two-piece!

As you can see, going to the beach is not only the perfect way to soothe your soul from a relaxation standpoint, but also to uplift your spirits from a confidence standpoint. And even if you don’t live close the beach, there’s nothing wrong with spending a few hours to drive there (and back) to make a day out of it. The sheer amount of relaxation that can achieve while there, along with the amazing boost in confidence levels by wearing a sexy bikini or other form of beach wear are all well worth the drive, in our humble opinions.

In addition, if there are truly no quality beaches anywhere near you, or at least not close enough to justify driving out to that location, a great work around is opting for a pool instead. Ideally the pool will be a private sort of pool, such as that of a friend or close relative, simply because the setting will be more intimate (not to mention less crowded), but any pool can theoretically work. Just keep in mind that if you do end up going to a very public pool, you should expect much less of a relaxing sort of benefit, as it will most likely be quite a bit louder, not to mention more crowded than a more private pool or the beach. However, with this setting, you are also able to flaunt your goods for more people to see, thus boosting your confidence levels even further!

However, if you’ve already read our article about proper skin care, you know that the sun isn’t your friend (at least not when it comes to the health of your skin). Therefore, is important to keep your exposure to the sun minimal, using sunscreen to help combat against the sun deteriorating your skin. Besides, too much sun can result in a nasty sunburn, which not only doesn’t feel good for you, but also leaves you looking assuredly less attractive as well (something none of us want!)

So if you weren’t convinced how awesome a beach trip can be, I hope we proved you wrong! Going to the beach is not only fun in its own right, but has substantial benefits to your overall health and well-being. Not only are you able to unwind and get away from work and other things that may be causing you stress in your life, but you also have the opportunity to work a sexy bikini and boost your confidence in a fun, flirty but ultimately natural way! So next time you’ve got nothing planned for the day, think about driving on down to your nearest beach – because even if you do “nothing” there, you’ll still be reaping the benefits that inherently come with simply taking the effort to go out there!
