I have a slight confession…
I PEE IN THE OCEAN…and I want to challenge you to do the same thing too :)
Haha, yup! Before, I would feel like a bad person. Now, I am not ashamed about it.
That is because recently I researched into it to find out about it.
Not only is it okay to pee in the ocean, but you become an instant environmentalist!
Has this happened to you?
You are at the beach, enjoying the amazing ocean and next thing you know you have to go to the bathroom.
The bathroom is SO FAR AWAY and you just want to RELAX and ENJOY the ocean.
You have two options.
One, HOLD IT. You feel uncomfortable and add unnecessary stress to your body and not really able to be present and enjoy your time at the beach until you finally make it to the bathroom.
Two, PEE IN THE OCEAN. You let it out, and afterwards maybe you feel disgusting or feel like a horrible person because you been told it is a big NO-NO and feel guilty.
Either way, both these outcomes are NOT COOL!
So, I am introducing another option.
SMILE WHILE PEEING IN THE OCEAN.
No unnecessary stress, disgust, guilt, shame, or whatever that is because you are doing the ocean a favor.
Basically our urine mostly contains water, sodium + chloride (=salt), and potassium, which are all in the ocean anyways.
So far, we are GOOD!
However, our urine does contain some urea, which is the main waste product in our urine that removes all the excess nitrogen in our body from breaking down protein.
This could be a problem, BUT it’s only a drop in the ocean.
More importantly, the nitrogen in urea combines with water to form ammonia, which is FOOD FOR THE OCEAN’S PLANT LIFE!
So, each time you pee in the sea, you become an INSTANT ENVIRONMENTALIST feeding the ocean’s plant life.
So, next time you are peeing in the ocean, SMILE and go back to BEING PRESENT and enjoying the amazing beach environment you are in.
Don’t let silly things like is it okay to pee in the ocean, get in your way.
Now my questions to you:
Have you peed in the ocean? Do you do it with a SMILE on your face?
I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment and let me know.
