A new study out of the University of Exeter in the UK finds that there are numerous health benefits to spending time near the ocean. Researcher Michael White said, "It's not going to be any great surprise to you that people relax."

For the study, researchers analyzed census data in England and found that those who live near the coast reported having better health. Researchers also found that those in lower socioeconomic communities reported the greatest health benefits from living near the coast.

Researchers are continuing their research on the health benefits of seaside living, and hope that their results may lead to the creation of a form of therapy based on ocean exposure.
