That feeling of full happiness felt during holidays at the beach is one of the reasons why people seek to live near the sea. Some believe that this sensation comes from the energy of salt water, which, centuries ago, was already used to treat respiratory diseases, dermatological diseases and even mental illnesses in resorts. However, it was in the 20th century that doctors and researchers began to scientifically analyze the benefits of living near the beach, as shown in a study conducted by Exeter University (UK) and published in the journal Health & Place in 2012, which related proximity to the sea to better health indexes and to the decrease of the population’s stress. For psychologists who participated in this study, those who live close to the beach value outdoor activities, exercise, and outdoor living.
According to data from the Vigitel (Surveillance of Risk Factors and Protection for Chronic Diseases by Telephone Inquiry), Florianópolis is the vice-champion among the capitals with the most active population, and the first one to practice physical activities outdoors.
SOME BENEFITS OF DYING NEAR THE SEA
All the well-being felt when we spend some time on the beach has biological explanation: the Sun is responsible for synthesizing vitamin D, which, besides being fundamental for the proper functioning of the body, its lack is related to depression in adults. A few minutes a day in the sun are enough to boost vitamin D levels and reduce symptoms of stress and depression.
Another scientific explanation is that the negative ions that the sea waves generate are responsible for the sensation of pleasure and relaxation that we feel when we are at the beach because they decrease the levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
LIVING ON THE BEACH AND CLOSE TO ALL YOU NEED
Obviously, it would be no use, day to day, to live in a beautiful setting, but away from work, children’s school, friends’ houses and other places that you need and like to attend. Therefore, the ideal is to be in the middle of all this, in a planned neighborhood, near beaches, but with all infrastructure, with comfort and functionality.
As we have already said, the north of the island of Santa Catarina has experienced unequaled growth, and this has attracted even more investment and people who wish to live and invest in a region with excellent prospects for value and a better quality of life.
And it is in this region that the Real Parque is located, a planned neighborhood with complete infrastructure, leisure area, green area and security, close to everything you need.
