The Ocean

The famed 'Lido Torpedo' strategizing

Preferably colder is more refreshing. Jump in and swim real hard, get close to the bottom and try to not move at all, while hoping no waves break close above up on the surface. Listen for silence without even the ringing in the ears. Waiting for that moment of just complete nothingness before the air in your body pulls you up to the surface.

That's the greatest feeling on earth. Floating in free space while concentrating on silence is ultimate relaxation therapy. You're trying to clear your mind with no distractions, while your body is suspended in neither tension nor compression.

Our bodies are 70% water, similar to the earths surface. I'm sure there is some research or writing on the therapeutic power of the ocean. Real estate values obviously benefit from the oceans proximity. But for me its just something I can't live without.
