These are the 5 benefits you can get from sailing yachts in Ibiza and Formentera:
Sailing can help you reduce stress - who wouldn't feel relaxed lying on their back, while the sound of crashing waves brings you back to total calm? With the warm breeze gently touching your skin and the touch of soft sand on your back. Just imagining it will make you feel relaxed.
It's not just a placebo effect. Numerous studies have proven it. One study has found that after a three-day vacation, respondents have reported feeling less anxious, more rested and in a better overall mood. Interestingly, these benefits tend to last for weeks after the trip ends.
It keeps your heart healthy:
Who would have thought that going out sailing on boats in Ibiza and Formentera has a direct impact on heart health? The Journal of the American Medical Association published an article titled "Multiple risk factor intervention trial: changes in risk factors and mortality outcomes" in which a study found that men who take frequent annual vacations were 32 percent less likely to die from heart disease than their counterparts who give up vacations.
In addition, taking a break at least once a year is also good for reducing heart disease.
Improves mental health:
A study by the University of Pittsburgh's Mind-Body Center says that leisure, including sailing on boats, yachts and catamarans, is definitely healthy. It contributed to more positive emotions and less negative feelings and depression.
Moreover, more studies have supported this claim. In fact, researchers from Radboud University in the Netherlands, have published the effects of a long vacation. They have found that people feel less tense and healthier during vacations, with higher energy levels and more satisfaction with life.
Help your brain make new connections:
Researcher Ferris Bueller has shown that the brain functions best when it has been given time to recharge. According to him, to get the most out of life, you need to get away from it from time to time.
His study has found that when you're at sea sailing boats, your brain doesn't actually stop processing. It reflects on the past, plans for the future and puts experiences into perspective, a good indication of exercising the brain. Which helps create new connections and make you healthier.
You fight depression:
Coming to Ibiza and Formentera and sailing on a boat has a lasting effect. It makes you happier even when you are no longer on vacation. A survey of Dutch tourists found that personal happiness levels increase when you are simply planning your trip.
Chemically speaking, the brain releases more endorphins and oxytocin every time you travel. These natural chemicals are the body's innate happy pill that greatly affect mood, perception of ideas and overall outlook. Traveling forces the brain to use these hormones to improve our mood and outlook. Doctors said that these hormones are responsible for fighting depression.
