No wonder we gravitate towards the ocean – the soul-soothing sounds of the waves, the healing sensations of the salty air, and the invigoration of the water when we're swimming in the sea, all feel like a tonic.
‘The sea is a powerful wellbeing prescription for both our physical and psychological health,’ says Jane Alexander, a leading holistic health expert and author. ‘As adults, around 60 per cent of our bodies are made up of water, so it's not surprising that we feel a kinship with the element outside our bodies, as well as inside.’
Here, she highlights just some of the health benefits you can soak up while you’re on a Cunard cruise – whether strolling on deck or enjoying some of the many activities on board.
