We're making the case today on the ways that Topsail Island can help you live your best life, whether it's only for a few weeks of vacation or as a place to call home.
More blue and green space.
You may have heard about the connection between colors and mood. Research goes beyond that showing that people are naturally drawn to certain colors and that those colors can affect one's sense of well being. Blue and green are two of those colors that studies have shown to boost a sense of happiness and an overall shift in your state of being for the better. Read up on the benefits of large amounts of blue space and green space in your surroundings, then ask yourself: Are you surrounded by enough? Topsail Island has plenty of both!
Less hustle and bustle.
Topsail Island, North Carolina offers a more laid back lifestyle since it's set back a bit from the mainland. You get the perfect combination of a beach atmosphere and an island ambiance. There is less hustle and bustle in your every day and a lot more time to slow down. Life zips by fast enough on its own, choose to live somewhere that allows you to be in the moment instead of always moving through life so quickly that one moment just blends into the next. That's no way to live!
More time spent outdoors.
When you live in a place where there are so many opportunities to get outside, it just makes sense that you'll naturally be inclined to actually do that. With a temperate climate all year long, you won't have to worry too much about the weather here on the coast of North Carolina. Along with the summer beach season, spring and fall are absolutely gorgeous here. Winter is mild and you won't have to deal with snow. The beach is here for you to enjoy all year long! And here's a little secret: the shoulder and off seasons are some of the best.
If you feel your life has become more sedentary than you like it to be, Topsail Island has many ways to get you up and out the door. You can learn a new skill or find your new favorite hobby by exploring all that beach life has to offer its residents. On-the-water activities like paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, surfing, and skim boarding are some of the most popular things to do here. Then there's the fishing, which is really popular here both on the novice and professional levels. Hike a trail, go camping in a state park, ride your bike along the coastline—however you do it, just get out there and get moving.
More opportunities to slow down.
With a slower pace of life comes the opportunities to savor moments and focus on beauty. It's hard to just walk by a Topsail Island sunrise or sunset without stopping and taking in the moment. The beach beckons you to come and sit for awhile to listen to the waves crash against the shoreline. Sitting out on your deck in the morning with a cup of coffee as you enjoy the coolness of the morning is a wonderful way to start your day. Coastal living just has a way of giving you more time to focus, relax and reboot.
When life isn't so rushed and there isn't the pressure to do all the things all the time, you find yourself feeling much less stressed. So with all of the above mentioned items, you can already guess that your stress levels are going to be lower. Getting more exercise, deeply breathing the salty ocean air, and enjoying the benefits of nature are good for the mind, body and spirit. You'll most likely be in better shape, sleeping well, and feeling less stressed than ever. Maybe you'll even find yourself doing beach yoga! Beach life really is the best life.
More ways to connect with people and nature.
Connecting with the coastal elements and the natural world around you is easy here. You're surrounded with them each and every day. You're also much more likely to connect with others in a place like Topsail Island. From the quality time spent with your family and friends to the daily interactions with others, there is a strong sense of community and belonging here. You won't feel lost in the crowd but you will feel like you have a lot of extended family. Connection to others and the world around you is so important. Find it here.
In cities and larger towns, there are a lot more ways to become distracted. With too many things vying for your time, it can make you weary and cause you to lose focus of what really matters in life. On Topsail Island, you're close enough to the mainland and larger cities like Wilmington, NC and Jacksonville, NC that you won't feel too far removed from the amenities they have to offer. But you will feel far enough to have some space to breathe. Less time in traffic, less congestion, less to and fro, and a lot less people are the perks of island life. You can spend your precious time on the things (and with the people) that matter most while enjoying a simpler, less complicated lifestyle.
