5 Reasons Owning a Boat Leads to a Healthier Lifestyle

5 Reasons Why I should Buy a Boat

  1. Staying Active - It is harder to be motivated to stay active in the technological age with many distractions such as Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, TV and Videogames. Taking up boating as a pastime can lead to a healthy and active lifestyle. Being out on the water is a great opportunity to enjoy swimming, water-skiing, snorkeling, tubing, and fishing.

  2. Fresh Air & Vitamin D - Being cooped up in an office or building working for hours each day doesn’t allow you to soak up the sunshine, and inhale the fresh air that our bodies desperately need. Having a boat allows you to spend more time outdoors in the sun, while also having fun. Sunshine provides us with Vitamin D, which has been proven to promote healthy bones, and improve moods.

  3. Spending Quality Time with Friends and Family- Studies have shown that people who are social with friends and family are less likely to experience sadness, loneliness, low self-esteem, and problems with eating and sleeping. By spending time on the lake with others, you may be increasing your longevity, and hopefully creating lifetime memories.

  4. Getting Away From Technology - Chronic health problems such as stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression have been linked with society’s inability to power down and put down technology. By taking a trip on your boat, and not utilizing technology, it is possible to relax and reduce many negative health problems.

  5. Eating Better - Many boat owners love to go fishing. Fish is one of the healthiest food, having lots of important nutrients such as protein, Vitamin D, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating fish has been linked to being essential to the development of both the brain and eyes, reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and helping reduce depression.
