Is there anything better than packing up the car and heading toward the ocean? The wind whipping in your hair, the smell of the salt water drifting into your senses, the warm sand between your toes! Unless you're strictly an indoors-type of person, there's nothing quite as calming and serene as going to the beach.
Most of us would rather spend a day at the beach than inside our office, cooped up in front of a computer I can guarantee. But have you ever thought about how a trip to the ocean actually affects us?
It's obvious that it can improve our mood, but can it change our brain's state? Can it improve our mental health and make us feel happier, overall?
The ocean is obviously powerful, but just how powerful is it?
