Swimming… It’s Great for Your Mind, Heart and Body!

Want to be a healthy individual but don’t care for working up a sweat during a vigorous cardio workout? Well, then swimming just might be your answer! Swimming is a very effective way of getting that great workout in without needing to even hop on a treadmill. Its physical benefits include: muscle strengthening, builds endurance, keeps your heart rate up, and provides an all-over body workout since nearly all of your muscles are used while you swim.

Swimming is also great for your mental health as well. It is strongly relaxing as it allows more oxygen to flow to the muscles and forces you to regulate your own breathing. Especially, it is a great way to reduce stress. Swimming is a meditative exercise that regulates your breathing; therefore, it could improve your brain functions via a process known as hippocampal neurogenesis, in which your brain will replace lost cells resulted by stress.

The human body is made up of approximately 70 percent water so it is absolutely no wonder why some people feel such a draw to the water.
