Chartering a sailboat on the San Juan Islands doesn’t just let you satisfy your thirst for ocean adventure. It also helps improve your overall well-being. By coming closer to nature, several elements--including the sun, water, wind and fresh salt air--serve as contributors to a healthier, more positive well-being.
When it comes to Vitamin D, nothing beats early morning sunlight. Studies have found that an hour of sun exposure in the morning allows your body to produce Vitamin D, which is important in fighting coronary diseases and cancer. Also, it strengthens your internal clock, promoting a high quality of sleep. Spending some time on the deck every morning during your cruise will allow your body to reap this benefit. Just remember to put on sunscreen to protect your skin and find shade as the sun rises higher at noon.
Chronic stress can trigger a wide range of health issues, including high blood pressure, inflammation, and memory problems. This is why relaxing your mind, body, and soul is vital to your overall health. Sailing can help you do all three. You can choose to simply sit back and relax while the crew does all the sailing. What reduces stress better than basking in the beauty of nature? A couple stopovers on shore won't hurt either. There is nothing quite like sailing to recharge and reenergize your body, mind, and emotions for a return to the workaday world.
These are only a couple ways that sailing benefits your health and overall lifestyle. Discover the many other benefits by choosing a sail for your next vacation. For a safe, enjoyable and healthful outing, find a reliable sailboat charter company that knows the ins and outs of the world-famous San Juan Islands.
