The Health Benefits of Living by the Ocean

For every lifestyle preference, UAVI provides incredible oceanside living and offers an incredibly attractive option for real estate investing in Mexico. But more than just an extraordinary investment for your portfolio and lifestyle, did you know that living by the ocean is also a good investment in your health?  Living next to the ocean has proven benefits to your health and here are just a few.

  1. Oceanside living encourages an active lifestyle. With surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, walking or running on the beach, watersports and more all easily accessible, exercise is not only fun but becomes a daily part of your oceanfront lifestyle. And, of course, with a full range of health and wellness amenities at UAVI, and a location offering exclusive access to Higuera Golf Club, a different outdoor adventure awaits you every day.
  2. Exposure to Vitamin D. Being in sunshine is one of the best ways for your body to naturally absorb Vitamin D, proven to have many health benefits including combating depression and building up calcium and phosphorus for good bone health. To protect your skin, be sure to wear a 30+ SPF sunscreen which will still allow you to safely benefit from Vitamin D.
  3. The benefit of being in ocean water. Did you know that beaches in Riveria Nayarit, including our own stunning stretch of Litibu Beach, are recognized as being some of the cleanest and safest in Mexico? The Pacific Ocean water is rich in magnesium, chloride, sodium, potassium, iodine, and sulfur. By swimming in the ocean, these minerals have been proven to help soothe or prevent dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema.
  4. Mental and emotional health. Three of the best natural ways to improve mental and emotional health are exercise, sunshine, and fresh air. In 2019, one large-scale study found that people who live 1 kilometer or closer to the ocean are 22% less likely to have mental health challenges than those who live 50 kilometers or further from the water.
  5. Breathing the ocean air. A warm ocean breeze is good for relaxing the soul and reducing stress but is it also good for overall health. The ocean air contains iodine, salt, and magnesium, all known to be beneficial for respiratory health, helping to improve skin problems and allergies, and can even boost your immune system.
  6. Better rest. One of the most popular white noise sounds that people use to relax and help lull them to sleep is the sound of ocean waves, so it’s no surprise that the sound of the ocean helps create a state of relaxation. Additionally, more time spent outside in the fresh air by the water will help you relax, fall asleep faster, and sleep more soundly.
