Go to the Beach

COMPLETED BY 226

LISTED 91

A beach vacation might seem like the most natural thing in the world — to head to the shore, play in the waves and splay your limbs out on the sand. But people didn’t always consider the beach a place primarily for relaxation and entertainment. After all, the beach can be cold, hot, sandy, wet, dismal and/or uncomfortable. And then there’s the whole prospect of drowning in the sea.

Deep cultural appreciation of the benefits of being at the beach really started in England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, largely because of medical prescriptions at the time. Many contemporary doctors believed that bathing in cold sea waves was beneficial for conditions they called “melancholy” and “spleen” – an excess of black bile that made people introverted, depressed, cautious or moody.

It is a good idea to spend some days at the beach and be cut of everyday problems and dream a little! So get ready and go on your journey!
