5 Ways A Boat Will Make You Happier

18_1200x1200_SALT WATER IN MY VEINS AND SAND IN MY HEARTBoating can improve your quality of life in a number of different ways. This enjoyable pastime delivers benefits ranging from stress relief to an increase in self-esteem. Here are five areas of your life, which can be improved by owning a boat:

1. Companionship

Few friends will turn down an offer to take a ride on your boat! Boating offers friends and families a unique opportunity to spend time with one another, improving those relationships with the people in your life who are most important to you.

2. Nutrition

With the right equipment and a little practice, anyone can fish. Serving up your catch of the day can provide nutrients many of us lack in our regular diets. Additionally, according to the Mayo Clinic, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish are good for your heart and the heart-healthy benefits of eating fish usually outweigh any risks.

3. Physical Health

Boat owners have easier access to watersports and activities such as swimming, skiing, and tubing. Participating in these activities can lead to implementing better fitness habits, making it less likely to become overweight or face other major medical problems.

4. Stress relief

Boating provides a way to escape and unwind, relieving stress and allowing us to relax, which is essential to both our mental and physical health. We can sit back and take in the coastal scenery while recharging our batteries, returning to land refreshed and invigorated.

5. Adventure

Boating can open up new opportunities for exploration in your local area, finding it easy to discover new places you'd never find on land. Take a swim or enjoy a picnic to indulge in a bit of offshore romance during your exploration of whichever tranquil, undiscovered waters you choose.

These are only a few of the ways that a boat may bring greater happiness into your life. Know another way boating can make you happier, healthier, and full of adventure? Let us know in the comments below!
