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.
