What Can Living Near the Water Do for Your Health?

Posted on August 22, 2017

As technology and medicine continue to improve and garner eye-catching headlines, it is easy to overlook the easy, every day things that can help lead to a healthier lifestyle. Eating your fruits and vegetables, getting in a good work out, and alleviating stress are all your traditional answers. Now, researchers at Michigan State believe they have found a new part to the equation: Living on the water.

Using Wellington, New Zealand, the urban capital, as its case study, researchers from East Lansing evaluated residents who lived in neighborhoods with views of either blue or green spaces. Those who lived near the water reported less psychological distress.

Many other research studies have looked at the correlation between health and coastal living and have found an uptick in mental health among people who live by the water. But Michigan State says it’s the first to show an affirmative link between the two based on visibility of water from a person’s home. The authors of the study suggest that, because blue spaces promote greater psychological well-being, then developers should invest in more communities near water.

While Florida residents have known this health tip for years, the secret is now out and its time to find your slice of paradise before it’s too late. IStar has just the community for you. The casually awesome lifestyle at Naples Reserve is sure to bring a smile to your face.
