There is just something about the ocean air.
While this may seem like a Hallmark quote there may actually be some scientific proof that living on the ocean can make you “better”. It is not a coincidence that many guided relaxations or meditation practices try to emulate being on a beach or near the ocean. Being by the ocean naturally helps to relieve stress and relaxes the body. Simply seeing a photo of the ocean has been known to reduce stress or provide a feeling of calm for the viewer.
A more profound benefit, is that the ocean air allows the body to absorb more oxygen which can actually help improve respiratory health! According to an article posted in the Wall Street Journal, the salty ocean mist can help to improve symptoms of asthma and possibly stimulate the immune system.
There seems to be no limit to how living by the ocean can make you “better”. But can living by the ocean also help elevate your “social status”?

While most of the time waterfront property may be most costly, waterfront homes in Houghs Neck have been able to encompass this air of luxury while keeping home prices within reach.
