Benefits of Sea Swimming

Your mind & your body will thank you. Most people will tell you all about that incredible natural high you get after coming out of the water, but you have more to gain than an adrenaline rush. Sea swimming can support your immune system as well as do wonders for your mental health.


Some tips for Swimming in the Sea


·         Never swim alone, it’s safer to have someone with you.

·         Always check the weather & tides before you set off

·         You don’t have to be decked out in all the gear just a towel & your togs will do

·         Always swim diagonally to the beach front

·         After getting out try your best to warm up, do a few jumping jacks or run on the spot or even bring a hot water bottle or hot flask

·         Pace yourself, every time you get into the water you will ask yourself ‘why am I doing this??’ but take some deep breathes in through your nose & out through your mouth and just let go!!
