Your swimming pool doesn’t have to be just for leisure, it can be a big part of an overall healthy lifestyle. Swimming as part of your fitness routine is extremely beneficial. It has been shown to reduce heart disease, stroke and many other chronic issues.
David Sparkes, the ASA Chief Executive, said, “It’s quite simple really. By swimming you’ll be improving your health but more importantly you may actually remember how much fun it is!”
When swimming it is easy let your mind float away, so not only is it a great form of physical fitness, it is also a great stress reliever. Let’s be honest…most of us could really use 30 minutes to focus on the well being of our mind AND body.
So the next time you jump in, swim a few laps, enjoy the evigorating rush you feel when you get your heart rate up a bit while your thoughts slow down.
