Swimming have plenty of benefits for adults. Often, doctors have begun advising their adult patients to begin swimming as a safe and enjoyable way to realize the health benefits of routine aerobic physical activity. "Just a few hours a week of an aerobic exercise like swimming can decrease the chance of acquiring chronic or even serious health conditions" ACCORDING TO THE CDC (Centers For Disease Control & Prevention).
Here are several reasons that make swimming the ideal sport for YOU :
1) Swimmers Live Longer :
Swimming is an aerobic exercise, it strengthens the heart by helping it to become larger; making it more efficient in pumping — which leads to better blood flow throughout your body. 30 minutes of swimming a day can reduce coronary heart disease by 30 to 40 percent.
2) Adult swimmers feel better physically :
People with chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis benefit from water-based exercises like swimming because they can get the benefits of healthy exercise such as a decrease in pain in a low impact and low injury sport without worsening symptoms or further damaging joints. Swimming is also responsible for maintaining or improving bone health in post-menopausal women.
3) Adult swimmers feel better mentally :
Like many exercises, swimming increases a feeling of well-being and is a great stress reducer. People who swim regularly also report less depression than non-swimmers of the same age, circumstances and socioeconomic group.
4) Better Social Life :
As well as being fun, swimming is a great way to keep fit and well and make friends.
5) Adult swimmers are less likely to drown :
Although one may assume adults have learned how to swim, many have not and are at a great risk any time they participate in a recreational activity that centers around water such as boating, snorkeling or even just enjoying ocean waves. A strong wave combined with a significant undertow can drag a person deep into the water where non-swimmers are in danger.
6) Lowered stress and better moods :
