We all know that being at the Beach is one of the best things that can happen to anyone, that’s why we always look at pictures of the beach as we are sitting in our dark little office, or as we are rushing in our everyday to day lives.
Yes, the beach is a very hot humid place, but feeling the breeze by the sea and going for a dip to cool off is the most amzing feeling!
So here are 8 brief reasons why you are simply happier at the beach, happier in Playa!
1. YOU’RE LESS LIKELY TO DIE
Well, if you’re swimming with sharks or wreck diving, we offer no guarantees but, in general, holiday-induced relaxation leads to a longer life. A study of 12,000 men over nine years showed that those who didn’t take an annual holiday were 32% more likely to die of a heart attack. Choose life. Choose the beach.
2. YOU ARE NOT AT WORK
Basic, yes, but we don’t need research to tell us that not being at work makes us happy. Respite from Outlook calendar alerts, the office sleaze, scaly “aircon” skin, the commute, computer crashes, achy mouse wrist… Bliss.
3. ALL LOVED UP
Whether it’s your bestie, boyfriend/girlfriend, mates, family or spouse, most people head off on holiday with someone they love and if not what better place than Playa to meet your summer love! There are many love stories about people that fell in love here, at the beach, a bar or even on 12th street!
The ultraviolet rays in sunshine can improve your sense of physical and emotional wellbeing by stimulating the production of vitamin D – this boosts our production of serotonin, the chemical that works to keep us feeling alert, up-beat and happy.
5. AMAZING FOOD
Offering more than 700 restaurant to choose from you can easily eat at a different place everyday! From local foods to gourmet kitchens you will never go hungry!
6. PUBLIC BEACHES, CENOTES AND PARKS!
All of Playa’s beaches are public, there are cenotes in which you can pay as little as $70 pesos to get in and enjoy the fun and many parks to enjoy and swim with dolphins, whale sharks, see birds or do all kinds of fun activities!
7. LUNCHTIME BREW
And we’re not talking about tea. Nothing beats the feeling of freedom that accompanies a lunch time beer. Just because you can.
8. BETTER SKIN
Word of the day: Thalassotherapy. It’s a big word for treating people with – or in – sea water. Call us vain, but breakouts make us want to stick our head in the sand, not lounge on it. “In moderation, the sunshine and seawater can help to clear up problematic skin by drying it out, and the salt is a natural exfoliant. Also, the silicone in the sea leaves skin looking younger, tighter and smoother,” says beauty wiz Teresa Tarmey.
