How does it feel when you're at the beach? Can you imagine being able to walk in the morning or simply contemplate the sunset by the sea during your afternoons? It's been said that the sea gives us a very different energy, in addition to bathing in salt water that literally washes the soul and works as a natural energizer, but is this true?

A study published by the journal Health & Place shows that yes, people who live near the coast are, in fact, happier. Study researchers focused on the city of Wellington, New Zealand, to understand how water affects mood and stress levels in cities.

To reach this conclusion, the researchers combined topographical information on the city, which informs places where you can see the sea, with a study carried out in the years 2011 and 2012 that included questions about the health and lifestyle of residents.

At the end of the interviews, the researchers found that people who had more access to the sea had a lower rate of stress. The same was not true for those who were closer to green spaces, such as parks, for example.
