One of the most important reasons to learn swimming is that it teaches how to stay safe in and around water. It is essential for children to learn to swim from an early age. Never, never, never let children swim unsupervised! Adults should become knowledgeable of basic water safety skills as well. While there is no such thing as “drown proofing,” reviewing the basic water safety rules is a must for a safe and happy swimming experience every single time one goes to the pool or spa.
Learning swimming early in life improves a child’s overall physical and mental health. The youngster will develop a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence with every new stroke. He or she will understand how to set goals and persevere until reaching the target. Swimming is a great way to show them what can be achieved with dedication and consistent practice.
Because children bodies are constantly changing, it is important they gain enough exercise to burn off excess energy and fat. This will help maintain a good sleeping habit, which offers numerous merits itself. Developing strong bones and muscles will allow children to swim longer distances and have more fun with family and friends.
You have to work harder to move through water than air. For every 10 minutes of swimming expect to burn between 60 and 150 calories, depending on your preferred stroke and speed of movement. Once showered and dried off, while the body is building lean muscles, the metabolism will torch even more calories.
Of course, swimming is not just for children… it’s great fun and terrific exercise at any age. Water is denser than air, which puts muscles under constant resistance. To keep you moving and staying afloat, every muscle in the body works together as a team. In return, the constant movement to avoid sinking produces cardio conditioning. You receive both aerobic and anaerobic benefits from the same workout. It’s a time-saver, too, as 30 minutes in a pool equals about 45 minutes of athletic activity on land.
Swimming positively influences cognitive functioning, blood pressure, cardiovascular performance, cholesterol levels, central nervous system health, muscle mass and blood chemistry. Dedicated swimmers are biologically up to 20 years younger than their actual age. Forget about expensive night creams and enjoy the swimming pool: a genuine fountain of youth.
A swimming routine makes labor easier by reducing stress on the musculoskeletal system and protecting against sciatic pain in the lower back. It is a gentle workout that promotes optimal blood flow to the uterus without aggravating loosening joints; it helps in decreasing pregnancy-related swelling (edema) and naturally supports the weight of the unborn baby.
Besides being fun, swimming also lowers stress and tension by reducing anxiety, depression, anger and confusion. Swimming builds self-confidence and improves sleeping patterns (no insomnia or waking too early anymore). Regardless of their level, novice, amateur or pro, all swimmers emerge from the experience feeling good, sometimes even exhilarated. In fact, 70% say they are mentally refreshed after a session in the pool.
Regular swimming along with a balanced, healthy diet and lifestyle is an ideal strategy for staying fit and maintaining a positive attitude. With lower risk of injury than other forms of exercise (swimming is a low impact sport, meaning less strain on bones and joints), often-neglected muscles like deltoids, lats, traps and core and lower back are constantly working out. The water around you will cool you down so you will never feel sweaty or get overheated, all while challenging your body in so many safe and beneficial ways.
