Here is another good read for the week. The article Study Shows What We Already Knew: Living Near Water Can Reduce Stress by Kate Horowitz shares research findings regarding the benefits of water views. Researchers are now using data to quantify commonly held beliefs.

This article resonates with me. In 1995, I visited St. Simons Island Georgia for the first time. St. Simons Island is a barrier island off the coast of Georgia. When I returned to Cleveland Ohio four days later, I announced to my family and friends that I was moving “to be close to the water.”

The beauty and serenity of being on the coastal shoreline is unparalleled for its calming effect. This effect continues for me personally after 20 years of living on the Georgia coast.
