Down By the Sea there is something magical that happens when we walk along the shore. Our cares lighten, our perpective lengthens. Scientists are trying to put their finger on exactly why that is, and in fact, “I’m Always Entirely Happy When I’m Here” is the title of a 2013 German study that found that outdoor settings, particularly those by the water, help us recover from stress. But do we really need proof? Just head to the beach and let the sand and waves soothe your body and soul.
