Wellness in travel is nothing new, but certain adventure activities—like scuba diving—are getting their turn in the spotlight. “Scuba divers benefit from a boost of vitamin D, become more conscious of their breath, enhance their fitness levels, improve their quality of sleep, and become connected with a like-minded community,” says Julie Andersen Global Senior Director of Brand for PADI Worldwide.
Andersen explains how diving in salt water can improve your health.
Thanks to the high magnesium levels in saltwater, being in or near the ocean will help regulate your muscles and nerve functionality, moderate blood sugar levels and improve your sleep. Magnesium is a critical element in our bodies, and one many people are deficient in.
“Vitamin Sea is not just a cute ocean pun; it highlights how saltwater is an essential nutrient for our body’s biggest organ–our skin,” says Andersen. Saltwater is rich with minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron, and potassium, which all help reduce inflammation, protect the skin, and heal any scrapes, cuts, or sores. Saltwater can also help enhance the flow of lymph, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Our bodies need trace minerals to function and develop optimally. “It just so happens that saltwater has many of the essential trace nutrients we need, including magnesium, manganese, cobalt, sodium, calcium, potassium, and boron,” says Andersen. These trace minerals are absorbed by your body through your skin - your largest organ - when you are in or near the ocean.
Swimming, diving, or even simply floating in saltwater can enhance your breathing abilities. In fact, it can also alleviate symptoms from hay fever, sinusitis and asthma too. This is because the saline in the ocean reduces inflammation and mimics your body’s own fluids.
Plus, sea air has high salt content, which means that as you breathe it in, it’s clearing your throat and respiratory system, allowing clearer breathing and better-quality sleep. Sea air is also known to keep you awake and energetic during the day because it is much cooler.
Have you ever felt at peace with the world when you walk barefoot on the beach? There is a scientific reason for that known as grounding. “Positive electrons in the form of free radicals can build up in our bodies and direct contact with the sand and saltwater, which have negative charges, literally balances this out,” says Andersen. This is why you likely feel more energized and relaxed at the same time when on the beach–and why many of us feel naturally drawn to the sea.
Did you know that saltwater has been proven to help heal those with weakened immune systems, anemia, and high blood sugar levels? In fact, saltwater is now being used in medicine–specifically for its

While North America is home to its fair share of fascinating animals—the grizzly bear, American bison and American alligator, to name a few—this sprawling nation is no slouch when it comes to plantlife, either.

This year more folks are prioritizing travel and newfangled experiences. We’re inspired by beloved television shows à la Emily in Paris to reexamine cities we’ve previously visited.
