Social media seems to be taking over the world. Whether you’re scrolling through Instagram or watching endless TikToks, everybody seems to be living their “best life”. Where Photoshop, image-editing software, background-erasing tools, and filters are king, it’s hard to separate reality from fakery.
If everything seems too artificial and you want to detox from the world, then scuba diving in Aqaba is your answer. Let go of everyday responsibilities and deep dive underwater to look at the marvelous creatures.
Live An Unfiltered Life
Scuba diving is one of the few activities or sports in which everyone can participate equally. When you’re underwater, there are no filters. It’s just you, living in the moment.
It’s not necessary to add any saturation, adjustments, or enhancements to the mesmerizing beauty of a colorful coral reef. The gorgeous animals are illuminated under the sun’s rays, and when diving in Aqaba, you’ll get to explore the world’s only underwater military museum.
Imagine being away from your desk, not getting annoying notifications, phone calls, or emails. There won’t be any interruptions, deadlines, or reminders. The only gadget you’ll be using while diving is your dive computer!
Less Screen Time
Less technology means less stress, so why can we not leave it behind? Although most of us can do so, our need to feel connected constantly stems from the demands and expectations we place upon ourselves and others. It appears the world has a severe case of FOMO (WHAT IS THIS??). Let’s become different from the rest of the world and live a calm, silent, peaceful life. That’s what scuba diving in Aqaba has to offer!
Scuba diving makes us do several activities known to be effective stress relievers, such as paying attention to our breathing and appreciating life. It’s simple to pay attention to your breathing rhythm when submerged in water.
Many divers compare scuba diving to a Zen state of being or a focused mindset in which they are fully aware of the present and take in the beauty surrounding them. Stress experts advise taking a break in nature as well. What’s better than exploring the ocean, the planet’s largest ecosystem? Nothing!
The fact that holidays are a fantastic way to unwind and find some downtime sounds obvious, but it’s true! Travel options are endless when it comes to scuba diving but doing it in Aqaba is an experience of a lifetime.
