Go to the Beach or Spend Money on a Psychologist Therapist - Given the Choice... Here's Why A Visit to the Beach is Highly Recommended by NeuroScientists
Waves gently splashing on the shore. Sunlight streaming from a cloudless sky. Seemingly-endless sand joining the horizon. Sounds pretty peaceful, doesn’t it? And for many of you who spend most weekday hours indoors, it doesn’t take much persuasion to visit the beach and catch some sun.
But if you do need more reasons to hit the beach, find out how the surf, the sun, and the sand can boost your physical and mental health.
Health Benefits of the Beach
Who wants to Quit Their Job, Retire Early, and Move to a Tropical Island? Let me share my experience, then you decided if this is something you want to try...
I wake up to an unusual sound for a January morning. It's the sounds of a gentle rain shower. Nothing to worry about. So I lay on my back and enjoy the relaxing sounds of the raindrops on the palm fronds outside our window.
I'm starting off the new year with an effort to look sharp - because ZZ Top says, "Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man". So into my barber for my 1st mens haircut for 2019.
Jun (short for Junior) has been cutting my hair for the past 7 years. What I like about the haircuts that he gives me is that they are a razor haircut - also known as a straight razor fade. While the razor fade haircut is a stylish modern style offered by many barbershops, it takes a truly skilled barber to cut and shave a razor fade.
Jun's has his little barbershop located on the 1st floor of his home. He definitely minimizes on the decor, but he absolutely maximizes my comfort with his razor expertise and experience.
When he's finished cutting, Rose (my wife) will walk around me and say, "Ang gwapo mo ngayon!", and give me a kiss. "You are handsome again".
Jun smiles because he knows Rose is satisfied with his work.
He finishes by giving me a brief scalp, and a shoulder massage. As I get out of the chair he tells me, "Forty pesos, sir Greg." I smile. I give him the forty pesos plus a very generous tip. "Thanks, my friend," and we are both satisfied with the deal.
Forty Pesos is equivalent to 80 cents
I'm not an expert at styling my hair, but Rose likes it when I put some styling wax in my hair. She says it makes me gwapo. If the simple request of putting styling wax in my hair makes my wife more loving and affectionate, then the extra ten pesos is a great investment.
Have I had any other experiences with a Razor Haircut?
Unfortunately, yes. I've had razor haircuts that felt like torture. My worst experience felt like the barber was ripping the hair from my scalp. "Ouch!" was putting it mildly. I remember thinking of getting out of one barber's chair and leaving, but the mirror made it extremely obvious that I needed stay and let them finish. (Note: the bad haircut happened while I was visiting in the USA).
Are you thinking of coming to the Philippines for a visit, to get a haircut, or moving to the Philippines? If you are, then let us know. Maybe we can offer you more guidance. Moving to the Philippines has been one of my best decisions in life.
