MENTAL HEALTH IN SWIMMING PART 2

1. Boosts brain health: A small study found that just being in water increases blood flow to the brain. Participants were immersed in water up to chest height and scientists measured blood flow to the brain while they were in the water and again when they drained the pool. They suggest their findings could indicate a positive impact on brain health. A healthy blood flow to the brain is important for supplying it with oxygen, glucose and nutrients, as well as protecting if from harmful toxins.

2. Beach benefits: Findings have suggested that immersing yourself in natural water in the open air is particularly good for positive mental well-being (great news for you cabin goers!). Some research has also found that those who live closer to the coast report higher levels of good health and wellbeing, though it’s not clear if this is definitely down to being by the sea. More research needs to be done.

Join us on March 1 for a 3 course dinner featuring clam chowder, bacon wrapped sirloin steak & chocolate mousse cake. Make your reservations with reception today.

The 2019 Canada Winter Games have wrapped up in Red Deer, Alberta and our men's and women's teams represented their province proudly. Our men's team ended up in 5th place overall, narrowly defeating Saskatchewan on the points tie breaker after all the matches left the teams tied in games one. Manitoba managed to win just 6 points more than our neighbours and retain bragging rights for another 4 years!

Our girls team, which was the youngest at the games, performed well beyond expectations and finished a very respectful 9th, defeating PEI in their last match up. Both the men's and women's teams had a memorable experience that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. They played extremely hard and improved as each match went on. Way to go TOBA!
