Vitamin D from sunlight is free
Vitamin D is essential for maintaining healthy bones and keeping the immune systems and nervous system functioning normally. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin made by the body, in the skin, from exposure to sunlight. While this essential nutrient is available as a supplement, spending some time outdoors each day (as little as 5-15 minutes) can provide the needed benefits. And trust us, you get lots of sun on this island! The best part: the sun is free! Grab a beach chair and hit the shores. Further, preliminary research suggests Vitamin D can help prevent various forms of cancer, including breast, prostate and colon cancers. So soak up that Siesta Key Sun and get your Vitamin D!

Isn’t it time for you to take a Siesta Key break? Vacation helps shrink stress and anxiety while also boosting the mental and physical health of the entire family.

It takes effort to unplug from the ever-spinning world around us, but one’s mind, body and spirit will be renewed by re-plugging into the joys of quality time with family and friends.
Special Vacation Time with Family or Spouses enrich relationships
People who take frequent vacations tend to spend more time with their spouse and children and are more satisfied with their marriages. Taking that quality together time to get away from the hustle and bustle enriches relationships as the memories made and time together is more focused without the constant stress of everyday life. People share the relaxing time together and in turn, life is better all around. Everyone always says: "Life is Better at the Beach."

It usually takes people 2 to 3 days to really relax and get into the groove of vacation time. Longer vacations are associated with greater psychological benefits than shorter ones, so try to plan a break that’s at least 7 days.

There are so many activities to do off the beach too, like amusement parks, museums, state parks, sporting events, and tons of shopping!
