BE YOU’RE BEST AT THE TEXAS BEACH
There is evidence you are happier at the beach.
- YOU’RE LESS LIKELY TO DIE
A study of 12,000 men over nine years showed that those who didn’t take an annual holiday were 32% more likely to die of a heart attack. Choose life. Choose the beach.
- YOU ARE NOT AT WORK
Basic, yes, but we don’t need research to tell us that not being at work makes us happy.
- LOVED UP
Whether it’s your bestie, boyfriend/girlfriend, mates, family or spouse, most people head off on holiday with someone they love.
- Vitamin D LIST
The rays inside sunshine improve your sense of physical and emotional well-being by stimulating the production of vitamin D that works to keep us feeling alert, up-beat and happy.
- SOUND WAVES
Research shows that the sound of waves alters the wave patterns in the brain, making you more calm and relaxed.
Just floating in the sea will lift your mood and boost your health: taking a dip at the beach opens the pores and helps to remove toxins from your body.
- READ ALL ABOUT IT
Research shows that simply reading for pleasure reduces stress by 68%. What’s more, this improved mood can be seen in a mere six minutes.
- LUNCH BEARS
Nothing beats the feeling of freedom that accompanies a lunch time beer.
- HAIR SUPPLY
Sunlight makes your hair grow quicker.
- BETTER SKIN
In moderation, the sunshine and seawater can help to clear up problematic skin by drying it out, and the salt is a natural exfoliant.
