Of all the unique qualities of Riviera Recovery, which includes an unprecedented level of amenities and activities, none may be more important to lasting sobriety than our location. Here, close to the beach in Malibu, we have found that our residents become relaxed to the point where they are far more receptive to the concept of full recovery than in an inland location.
This belief isn’t speculation, it’s science. Multiple reputable studies have shown that spending time in close proximity to the ocean has numerous positive effects on health and well-being. One recent study by the University of Exeter in England showed that people who lived closer to the coast reported better health.
The study reported that, “Living near the coast may be associated with better health because the seaside environment reduces stress.” Another British study showed that people who took trips to the coast experienced more feelings of calmness and relaxation than those who visited urban parks or the countryside.
And in an article published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology in 2013, Dr. J. Aaron Hipp, noted that “Studies have shown that natural environments like beaches and waterfront parks offer more restorative benefits to people than gyms, entertainment venues and the built urban environment.”
The beach contains an abundance of negative ions which create positive feelings in humans. The science says that the introduction of negative ions into the bloodstream starts a chain of biochemical reactions that increase the mood-elevating chemical serotonin, which helps alleviate depression and stress, and increases energy.
