If you are trying to decide exactly where you are going to take your summer vacation, look no further than OCNJ. Aside from all the wonderful amenities that OCNJ has to offer, the beach is actually beneficial to your health. It is true, numerous studies have proven it!
Listen to the Waves Crashing
The rhythmic sound of waves crashing, actually starts to put your mind in a meditative state (that’s why sleep machines always include the ocean waves). The sound of the water naturally puts you in a calm and relaxed state.
Enjoy the Blue Sky
When you are sitting on one of the 8 miles of OCNJ beaches, staring at the blue sky, not only does it make you feel at peace, but the color blue is causing a physiological reaction that reduces stress.
Soak Up the Sun
When you soak up the sun’s rays (with ample sunscreen of course), there are a number of health benefits. The Vitamin D you get from the sun is good for your bones and studies have stated that is can help lower your blood pressure.

Bike OCNJ, led by Ocean City residents Drew Fasy and Tom Heist, have been working hard to create a regional “super bikeway” for the area. If you are a bike rider or OCNJ that supports this cause, there will be an informational meeting this Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Somers Point City Hall, 1 West New Jersey Avenue.
