What Blue Health means and how you can benefit from this lifestyle

Panoramă Boreal Plus- ansamblu rezidențial Constanța (1)

The fast pace of life and more and more health problems based on daily stress, urges the search for methods to improve lifestyle. And if miracle solutions are expected from medicine and technology, areas that make remarkable progress, for everyday life there are more affordable solutions, such as blue health, a concept with a significant contribution to the quality of life and mental and physical health.

Every aspect of life has an influence on both, the mood and the mental state. From the people we interact with and the events of the day, to the work environment, but especially to the living context and the way we spend our free time, all these determine our mental state and indicate our lifestyle.

The city we live in is an important factor in this mix that influences the quality of life, from infrastructure to urban facilities, landscape architecture and natural elements: rivers, lakes, hills and mountains or opening to the sea. Studies claim that urban “blue infrastructure”, which includes any water setting, both natural and landscaped, offers a series of health and wellness benefits.

Blue Health is the effect that blue spaces – water environments – give to the human body during performing as many activities and spending time to relax within them.

In addition to the genetic line, health is directly influenced by the living environment. In a world of continuous urban development, health depends even more on the building process, infrastructure and the management of the cities. In addition to green spaces that are a necessity for well-being, more recently, studies say that blue spaces make people happier. Those who have a river, a lake or the sea in the proximity of the house, are calmer, more relaxed and are less affected by the negative factors of the environment. Related to the influence on social behaviour, those who develop a connection with nature are more open to outdoor physical activity, have positive human interactions and have better mental health and well-being than those who do not have this type of blue spaces around and cannot benefit from their effects.

The Blue Health concept is based on a study (part of the Horizon 2020 Blue Health project) conducted on 18,838 people in 18 countries, mainly in Europe, which confirms that living near the sea, a lake, river, or even near some landscaped blue spaces, positively influences the mental and physical condition of people.

Therefore, the researchers suggest that the recipe for a better life involves living as close to the sea as possible, ideally with a direct view to the water, which can improve the physical health, the mental health and the mood.

One of the effects of the pandemic was the possibility of working remotely, from anywhere, which boosted migration to cities closer to nature, such as Brasov or Constanta. However, while Brașov records alarming data on the degree of pollution, Constanta is at the opposite pole, being the city with the cleanest air. IQ AirVisual, an organization of Swiss specialists who conducted a study on global pollution, confirms what has been said, noting that the sea breeze helps clean the air, contributing to its high quality, another relevant aspect being the fact that on the Romanian coast there are not many industrial pollutants.

In fact, the limited options to travel abroad increase the interest of Romanians to visit the Black Sea coast more frequently, especially in the hot season. Awareness of the effect of Blue Health on people can make them embrace the idea of spending more time on the beach and even buying a holiday home.

Built to high energy efficiency standards, with the objective of obtaining the BREEAM Excellent Certificate, Boreal Plus is a mixed residential compound, which includes both buildings with studio, 2 rooms or 3 rooms apartments and villas.
