Swimming? Yes, It Really is So Good for You!

By Genevieve Cunningham

Swimming is a really popular activity in the summer. Who doesn't love to throw on a suit and jump in a pool when the temperature is climbing? We all love it! But as it turns out, swimming is more than a nice summer distraction. It's actually really good for us. In fact, it can improve our bodies and health in multiple ways. If you're anxious to take a dip in your local pool, take a look at these reasons why finding the time for a swim is definitely worth your time. 

It Soothes the Body

Swimming, though certainly a challenging endeavor, is incredibly soothing. The buoyancy of the water helps to relax the muscles. It makes us feel lighter and less strained. It's an excellent way to create a comfortable body. And if we're working out and creating a better body, why not create comfort at the same time? If you like the idea of soothing the body as you exercise, swimming may be just what you need to get started. 

It Works the Muscles

Though swimming can soothe the muscles, it's also going to work the muscles. Swimming is hard. It forces the muscles to work harder. It pushes them a little further and in new ways than many other exercises. Many are surprised to find that after a few swim sessions, their bodies feel stiff and sore. Luckily, jumping back in the pool can help ease the soreness while still pushing the muscles to new heights. 

It Really Pushes Stamina

If you haven't been swimming in a while, you're going to be a little surprised when your face starts to burn. Why? Because swimming requires a lot of stamina, just like running. You'll have to breathe in a steady fashion, learning to inhale and exhale at just the right moments. Swimming improves stamina and endurance. It expands your lungs and their ability. If you're a swimmer, you may find that other exercises become a little easier because your ability to stick with it is enhanced. A better body and stronger stamina? Swimming is definitely where it's at. 

Swimming is not only a fun summer activity, it's also a great exercise to put in your routine. It challenges you and changes your body and improves your health. Find a pool this summer and take a dive. With this addition to your routine, you'll find improvements in your health and life while having a blast in the warm summer sun.
