Swimming also has many mental health benefits. Swimming World Magazine, “The direct effect that swimming has on our brain leads to several mental health benefits, a few of which are explained below.”
Endorphins and Serotonin
Any form of exercise, including swimming, causes the release of endorphins. These endorphins interact with receptors in our brain that reduce our perception of pain. Along with serotonin, endorphins bring about a sense of happiness, positivity and well-being. Research has also proven that regularly getting those feel-good hormones flowing (a.k.a. exercising) has deep mental health benefits and helps your body respond better to stress in general.
Swimming also, takes your mind off of things, regulates breathing, boosts blood flow, mental well-bing and stress relief.
Blue Mind Science
“Blue Mind” is a term associated with water-related calm and peace. Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, author of the best-selling book Blue Mind, says, “Research has shown that being near, in, on or under water can provide a long list of benefits for our mind and body, including lowering stress and anxiety, increasing an overall sense of well-being and happiness, a lower heart and breathing rate, and safe, better workouts. Aquatic therapists are increasingly looking to the water to help treat and manage PTSD, addiction, anxiety disorders, autism and more.”
