If you’re stressed and needing relaxation, head to the beach. Going to the beach as a child, those were some of the best childhood memories for many of us. The warmth of the sun, the feeling of sand between our toes, the smell of the saltwater and the calming whoosh of the waves. Now, science has caught up to what our child’s brain already knew. The beach is one of the best places to go if we need to relieve stress and produce calm in our lives.
