A day aboard The Liberté is sure to be a day to remember full of fun bonding moments, but did you know that sailing also has many benefits for your health? Being near the water is proven to have scientific health benefits, including reduced stress and elevated mood. Continue reading to learn about a few of the health benefits you can expect when you spend a day aboard The Liberté!
Open water has been proven to have a calming effect on people, as the sound of the waves alters wave patterns in your brain that lull you into a deeply relaxed state. When listening to the waves on The Liberté, you may find yourself in a meditative trance with little on your mind. Scientists have discovered that humans have a “blue mind,” meaning that our brains automatically react positively to water. Many of us spend a lot of time looking at screens during the day, so having a change of scenery with beautiful views of Vineyard Sound and beaches can also help to clear your mind. Salt water also produces serotonin and melatonin, which help to reduce stress levels, increase your mood, and allow you to have a better night sleep.
When sailing on Cape Cod in the summer, you’re likely to get plenty of sunshine while sailing. While it’s important to wear sunblock to protect your skin, it’s also essential to make sure your body is getting enough sun. Sunlight has many benefits, such as improving your mood and energy levels and helping you to sleep better. On the other hand, not getting enough sunlight can make you vitamin-D deficient, which is linked to many diseases.
Lifts Your Mood
When you board The Liberté this summer and explore Vineyard Sound in Cape Cod, you will be breathing in the clean, salty sea air, which is full of beneficial negative ions. These ions are oxygen atoms and negatively-charged electrons that are produced by the combination of salt water and the air. They have a positive effect on mood by helping to alleviate depression and boost energy.
The Liberté is in Cape Cod each summer from the beginning of July to Labor Day, so now is the time to start planning your daysail or private event to reap the benefits of a relaxing day on the water!
