    Benefits of living near lakes  

  • Sunshine. Sunshine is one of the best mood enhancers, and it’s completely natural. Sunlight boosts your serotonin levels. If you feel crabby or depressed in the cold or rainy months, the lack of sunlight is likely why. Another benefit from the sun is Vitamin D. You don’t need a ton of time outside to reap the benefits of Vitamin D. (Many experts say it only takes 5 to 15 minutes.) In moderation, the sun can also help treat psoriasis, acne, jaundice, and eczema. 
  • Fresh Air. If you vacation at a lake or beach, have you thought the air felt cleaner? This is because water charges the air with negative ions, helping your body absorb oxygen more easily. Increased oxygen flow is beneficial to our bodies in so many ways. The biggest benefit is the boost it gives to mood and concentration. (Like sunshine, fresh air increase serotonin levels.) Fresh air can improve the digestive system, blood pressure, and heart rate, too. It helps the immune system by improving the functionality of white blood cells as well. 
  • Outdoor Activity. Living near a lake encourages outdoor activity! Doing physical activity outdoors marries the benefits of fresh air and exercise. The most frequently talked about benefit of exercise is weight management, but physical activity helps prevent cardiovascular disease, lowers blood pressure, and improves cholesterol levels, too. A mood boost is another immediate benefit to exercise. Fishing, kayaking, and swimming are just a few of the things you can do at the lake.
  • Peace & Quiet. Stress takes a toll on your mind and body. Managing stress improves your health. Some places are better than others for your mental health. Living near a lake means less noise, fewer neighbors, and more connection with nature. All great ways to de-stress your lifestyle. Living by a lake also means built-in meditation. In addition to the soothing sounds of moving water, being on or near water creates a relaxed, meditative state known as “Blue Mind”. Physiologically, your brain and body change as you commune with nature. You relax, and your body begins to function the way it was intended.
