Mindful Benefits of Swimming

According to studies by neuroscientist Sara Lazar, Ph.D., at Harvard Medical School, being mindful can affect stronger neural connections in the brain, effecting better breath control, improved concentration, less anxiety and enhancing our capacity to be in the moment.

         Notice the sensation of water on skin and a feeling of weightlessness.

         Forget about to-dos and indulge in simple floating; surrender to the support of the water and let go.

         Visualize the water washing away worries and stresses.

         Push off the wall of a pool or the bottom of a lake with a personal affirmation such as, “I am peaceful”, or, “I open myself to joy.”

Clean waters are vital to us all. Do your part by not contributing to overburdened natural resources.

         Swim in chlorine-free pools.

         Enjoy the beauty and pass on appreciation for special spots.

         Take out what we bring in.
