Oftentimes, if you visit most marinas in Anytown, U.S.A., you’re likely to see a lot of boats just sitting there at the docks. Many people own boats, but they’re often working at their jobs rather than spending the day on their boat. That’s a shame! If anything, we all need more leisure time in our lives. We could all use a good day on a boat.
What are some reasons to spend a day on a boat?
A Getaway From the Mundane
First, it’s an escape from everyday life, which means you can get away from bosses, annoying co-workers, people in general, and, ideally, responsibilities of life. Do the dishes in the sink need cleaning? Perhaps. Does the garbage need to be taken out to the curb? Probably. But sometimes you just need to forsake “it all” and get away to a boat! Boats are great escape vehicles.
A Chance to Create a Memorable Day
Next, while you can go boating alone, it’s more fun if you take people with you whom you like and want to spend time with, such as family members (kids, for example) or close friends. It’s a chance to let your guard down, turn your phone off, take your shirt off (men), work on your tan, and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature all around you. Add a cold drink on a warm day, some good food, and maybe even some fishin’ or boardin’ or whatever you want to do in/on/near water, and it’s the kind of day you don’t forget.
A Little Rest and Relaxation
Finally, if you’ve got stress in your life and you want to relax, a day on a boat is a great way to recharge your batteries. You’ll see some beautiful sights, soak up the sun getting Vitamin D, take some pics, maybe catch a fish or two, and/or just have fun. Anyone with anxiety, depression and/or stress could benefit from a day on a boat.
