Those of us who love the island life didn’t need to read this study…we knew it already. But, guess what? Research shows that living by the water can actually reduce your stress! The beach life is the best life, and I happen to think that life in Roatan is the best way to reduce your stress.
A study completed by researchers from New Zealand and the U.S. revealed that psychological stress was reduced for those who had views of blue, more so than for those who had views of green. Part of that could be the man-made greens that people might see, like gardens or playing fields, instead of natural greens. But mostly, it’s because blues calm us.
In Roatan, we have all-natural beautiful blues and gorgeous greens everywhere you look!
Beach Life is the Best Life
It’s hard to argue: The beach life is the best life for so many of us. Think about how relaxed you feel with your toes in the sand and your eyes on the horizon. It’s such a wonderful way to realize how small our own troubles might be when we look out onto the massive ocean at our feet. Those hues of blue are the best way to relax and to eliminate our small stresses altogether.
Beach life is the best life because of those constant reminders. If you actually live at the beach, this isn’t just a one-week reprieve from stress. Every single day, you can wake up and walk out to the water’s edge to remind yourself of how small those worries are in comparison to this great big world.
Life at the beach is filled with blues…but not the depressing kind! These blues are shades from the sky and sea that we get to enjoy on a daily basis. And even when those blues turn a little grey with stormy weather, we know it will all blow over soon and we’ll be back to our beautiful blues in no time.
Life on the Beach in Roatan
Roatan is a tropical Caribbean island boasting some of the most beautiful beaches in the region. In fact, West Bay Beach is regularly voted as one of the best beaches in all of Central America — and even the world!
But the best part about living in Roatan is that you have the opportunity to explore all the other beaches on the island, too. West Bay Beach is the most popular beach, but that also means it has the most tourists.
While we love the international appreciation for our beautiful stretch of sand on Roatan’s western tip, we also love our many other beaches that offer quiet and tranquility.
If you live in Roatan, you can actually enjoy all those other natural beauties whenever you want. Maybe you’ll live near a small little cove with your own private piece of sand. Or maybe you’ll live on the East End where tourists are fewer and locals get to enjoy the natural beauty that has made this island so beloved.
Life on the beach in Roatan means being surrounded by natural beauty, whether you’re on the most popular beach or the most isolated.
And, as we all know, the beach life is the best life. Science proved it!
