Most times, when we see people at the beach, they are typically just walking around or taking pictures by the water when are countless things to do on the beach.
1. Play with the water
Let go of your inhibitions and stand in the water and watch the waves. When I was a child, my mother told me whenever I went to the beach, ‘never play with the water because it can carry you away’. Little by little, I stepped into the water and realized it wasn’t so scary.
2. Enjoy nature and do some nature photography
Looking at nature is one of the ways going to the beach is good for your mental health. Taking a break from the urban areas to look at natural elements like the sunset and the waves can be calming on your nerves, alleviate depression and offer you some needed insights.
