The Advantages Of Waterside Living
Who hasn’t dreamt of waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean waves or watching over a calming lake? Most of us wish we had a home on a lake, canal or sandy beach. Oasis know the desire for water is a huge necessity for our clients, so much so we have built an over 10 acre lake running through the centre of our Signature One development to offer more of our clients a chance to be close to the water. This is in addition to our stunning ocean front lots.
Apart from the beautiful scenery, living on or near water has many benefits. It can benefit your health, cleanse your soul, and give your total peace and tranquility. Living by water will provide a happy and healthy life for you and your family.
Here are some of the benefits of waterside living:
Living by the water will not only lower the stress in your life, but it will also increase your immune system. Reducing the stress means that your body has more potential to be healthy and vibrant.
Scientists have discovered that one of the easiest ways to do this is to take a stroll and be around nature, whether that’s a walk in the park at lunchtime, or an evening stroll by the waterfront. Taking the time to enjoy nature in this way has been shown to lead to “lower concentration of cortisol, lower pulse level and lower blood pressure”.
2. “Blue Mind” Effect
Research has shown that our body and mind tend to have a personal and emotional relationship with water, also known as “Blue Mind” effect. It’s a state when our body and soul feel more relaxed when near water.
Notice how you feel more meditative as soon as you get near the beach. You forget everything that caused you stress, and focus on the calming sounds and the feel of the water.
3. Calming Sounds
If you go in a spa center, you will no doubt listen to some calming sounds on the speakers. Usually, we hear the soothing sounds of water, waves, and birds to relax and calm ourselves. We often use sounds from nature to help us fall asleep.
But, living near water will give you the most natural and soothing melodies. While listening to relaxing noises of waves and the water lapping the shore, you will never feel more calm and relaxed.
4. A Rewarding Investment
Waterfront property also accounts for a significant value in terms of investment. As the waterside property are normally scarce to find, this allows them to retain their value over a longer period. Along with excellent resale value, rental rates tend to be higher with people wanting to rent waterfront homes for the same reasons that you want to buy one.
Living near water suddenly allows you to partake in a lot of fun activities. Not only that, but you’ll also come into contact with water and benefit from all its numerous advantages.
Swimming alone has so many health benefits. It’s a good form of exercise that isn’t overly tiresome. Swimming can work wonders for all the joint and muscle pain you’ve been experiencing for years.
Did you know that seawater can help improve your skin? Magnesium is a mineral known for its ability to moisturize and reduce skin inflammation. In fact, people suffering from skin-related conditions like eczema are advised to swim in salty water.
Besides swimming, there are so many other activities you can take part in as you appreciate mother nature’s gift to us. You can go fishing, surfing, or you can take peaceful walks on the shore. All this is good for your mind and body. Just remember to stay safe.
