Boaters Are Happy People by Jessica Arnold
There’s nothing quite like cruising the lake with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. Boating is a diverse recreation offering one the ability to sail, ski, surf, fish, or just enjoy the ride. To some, boating is more than fun on the water. It’s a way of life.
What is it that draws us to the water? Why is it good for us?
Connection Memories made while boating can be some of the fondest of childhood experiences. Children learn so much boating like appreciation for the time spent connecting and building relationships with parents, siblings, and friends.
They can also learn important lessons such as concern and safety for others and themselves. Boaters tend to be very social and enjoy being part of a community of people who share their love of the water and boating.
Stress Reduction Science shows that being outdoors can make us healthier by reducing stress levels. We all know that stress can make us sick and can also be blamed for shorter lifespans. Not only is boating fun, it can reduce stress, making you happier, healthier, and live longer.
In addition to decreasing stress, spending more time with nature can put you in a more positive mood. Fresh air and sunshine have been shown to fight depression and tend to make us just feel better. Boating can feel like being a million miles from the stress of the daily grind.
So, whether you prefer spending the weekend skiing, tubing, or cruising or; just kicking back and relaxing. Slow down. Take a mental health day. Go boating!
