Science says you should rent a boat this weekend – and we agree

Is Boating Actually Great for You?

Whether you live in Cocoa Beach or are just visiting for fun, you understand that the water is awesome. The ocean, Banana River, and other great waterfront locations in our area can be exciting, adventurous, or just plain calming! But the refreshing escape of the wonderful outdoors isn’t just some place that we think is cool. Science agrees. It turns out that boating, like other watersports activities, is scientifically proven to be not just fun, but healthy, too. So, let’s take a look at all the reasons why you should be taking a Cocoa Beach boat rental out on the Banana River this weekend!

Water Helps You Relax with Friends & Family

Did you know that just being near the water helps your brain reset? It’s true. Spending time where you can see and hear the water literally increases your body’s serotonin and lowers your cortisol, which is the fancy way of saying that the water makes you happy and relaxed! Taking the time to unwind on a boat every week is like giving your mind a mini spa-day. And on top of helping you relax, boating is something that is easy and fun to do with friends or with family – something else that is critical to good mental health and physical health. So, get out on the water with your favorite people and see how much better you feel!

Living Longer with Boating

Boating doesn’t just have nice short-term effects for people. There have also been studies, like a UK study from the University of Exeter Medical School, that have proven that living near and spending time on the coast literally promotes a longer, healthier life with greatly reduced anxiety and depression. In addition, being near the water can decrease your risk of mortality by 17%. So, if you’re feeling stressed, need a break, or just want to make sure that you’re getting your much-needed relaxation, then it’s time to start rent a boat!

Promoting Good Health the Easy Way

The best part? Boating is incredibly fun and easy for everyone. Young and old alike can get out in the sun to enjoy the blue skies, gorgeous sun, and gentle waves of Cocoa Beach. You can  sit and relax in the sun to soak up some vitamin D, enjoy an afternoon of fishing, or take a swim keep in shape! A boat rental gives you a little bit of everything that you need to have peace of mind and a healthy body – and you can spend the whole time enjoying the beauty of nature with your favorite people! And don’t forget – telling people that you’ve “gone boating” is an easy way to make sure that no one bothers you on your precious Saturday.
