If you own a business, you know that finding the time to relax and take some time away from work is one of the biggest challenges of entrepreneurship. Stepping away for even a long weekend can be tough, but research has shown that getting away, and more specifically, hitting the beach, can help reduce stress, boost creativity, and restore energy levels.
Below, we’ve shared a list of a few reasons why entrepreneurs need to head a beach trip, courtesy of Ronald Barba for Tech.co:
- A Time to Unplug: As an entrepreneur, you may thing you need to be plugged in 24/7 in order to be successful, but in reality, constant technology use has been linked to mental health issues, high levels of stress, and issues sleeping. Studies have shown that the brain becomes less stressed when looking at nature scenes such as beaches and that those who live closer to beaches are in better health than those who do not.
- Get Some Sun Time: A lot of entrepreneurs spend most of their time indoors. Going to the beach not only can give you a great tan, it also helps ensure you receive enough Vitamin D which is necessary for bone and skin health and has been shown to boost mental health states.
- Benefits of Being Near Water: Studies have shown that people near bodies of water are happier than those who are not. Additionally, swimming has been show to decrease stress, anxiety, and levels of depression.
