Are you having a hard time staying in shape due to joint pains? Do you feel like your body doesn’t have the same get-up-and-go as before? Well, you might be in luck! Did you know that swimming can alleviate your aches and pains? So before you give up all hope on your body image dreams, read on to find out more about how swimming can benefit you in more ways than one.
Aches And Pains Relief
Swimming can significantly reduce the stress felt on old, tired bones. As you enter a body of water, have you ever felt different? Feel some of your back pain go away? This sensation is due to buoyancy, the ability to float in water! There is way more physics and math involved than I’d like to get into, but know that you are quite buoyant! The relief you experience when swimming comes from water absorbing some of your weight and causing you to float. You may not experience complete relief, but the added “weightlessness” you feel can create some much-needed relief.
Low Impact Exercise
Low-impact exercise is just that: low-impact! Low-impact exercise is an exercise that doesn’t require as much heavy-duty lifting and lowering. Think jogging or running—those are high-impact exercises. Your joints feel the benefit of swimming the most. Low-impact exercises help you meet your exercise goals without all the extra stressors that come with high-impact exercises. Swimming keeps you moving to keep your heart health in check and to keep your body looking good.
Once you reach a certain age, some things become difficult to do. You can’t pick up your tools for woodworking; you can’t see as well anymore. Unfortunately, that’s life. So, do some swimming to keep you going for many more years to come and make yourself feel young again. You owe it to yourself to keep yourself in good health. If you don’t feel quite as motivated to work out, think of your grandchildren as well.
