I've asked this question on life hacks and been told to go ask it on medical or travel. It's nothing to do with travel in my opinion. I have heard/ read so many conflicting statistics about the sea air and cloud cover. I would like to know if it is healthier overall to live on the coast or inland.

Being near water appears to make people happy, British newspaper the Guardian ran this piece on it: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/nov/03/blue-space-living-near-water-good-secret-of-happiness

It contains links to peer reviewed papers about the positive effects of being or living near water or on the coast on well-being, like this one. The newspaper article and the scientific papers deal with psychological well-being, you would have to look elsewhere for purely physical effects.
