Wellness Wednesday

Happy Summer Solstice!

I am excited to be celebrating this long awaited day. Here in Maine I am gardening in between the rain drops, walking along the beach, and enjoying beautiful sunsets.

I put together the seven healing benefits of walking along the sea shore for you because I find immersing myself in the salty air, feels invigorating and is truly healing.

Seven healing benefits of walking along the sea shore.

1. Grounding and Connection: Walking barefoot on the sandy shore allows for a direct connection with the Earth's energy. This practice, known as grounding, helps to balance and stabilize the body's energy field, promoting a sense of stability and connection to the natural world.

2. Stress Relief: The rhythmic sound of crashing waves and the sensation of the salty breeze on the skin can have a calming effect on the mind and body. The serene coastal

environment provides a break from the hectic pace of daily life, allowing for relaxation and stress relief.

3. Mindfulness and Presence: The beach's natural beauty and vastness encourage mindfulness and being present in the moment. Walking along the shore, feeling the sand between our toes, and observing the ebb and flow of the tides can help shift the focus away from worries and bring about a sense of peace and clarity.

4. Refreshing and Energizing: The invigorating salty breeze carries negative ions that can enhance mood and energy levels. Breathing in the sea air can boost oxygen intake, improving overall vitality and rejuvenation.

5. Emotional Healing: The beach's soothing atmosphere can help release emotional tension and promote emotional healing. The combination of nature's elements, such as the sound of waves, the vastness of the ocean, and the beauty of the surroundings, can evoke feelings of awe, tranquility, and gratitude, supporting our emotional well-being.

6. Vitamin D and Sunshine: Spending time outdoors, particularly in sunny beach environments, allows for natural exposure to sunlight, which stimulates the production of

vitamin D in the body. Adequate vitamin D levels are essential for maintaining bone health, supporting the immune system, and promoting overall well-being.

7. Exercise and Physical Well-being: Walking along the beach provides an opportunity for gentle exercise, engaging the muscles and promoting cardiovascular health. The soft sand offers resistance, making the walk more challenging and beneficial for strengthening the lower body.

Overall, the healing benefits of taking long walks along the beach lie in the combination of the serene coastal environment, the sensory experience of the salty breeze and crashing waves, and the opportunity for grounding, mindfulness, and physical activity.

This immersive experience can promote relaxation, rejuvenation, emotional healing, and a sense of connection with nature, contributing to overall well-being and renewal of the spirit.

Receiving a healing massage & being on the beach are two of my favorite things.

Book your massage soon. My calendar is filling up and I would love to see you.

Peace & Light, Christina
