Bucket lists generally list experiences that are exhilarating and excitingly dangerous to perform. However, that’s not true for everyone. Your bucket list can include any fun activity bound to provide an unforgettable experience that can be fun without being extreme. Scuba diving is one such experience. Scuba diving isn’t just adventurous; it also has a number of benefits for your health and overall well-being. Here’s why you should put scuba diving on your bucket list.
Benefits to Physical Health
Being in the water is healthy for you. The water resistance forces you use all your muscles simultaneously to keep yourself balanced. This improves your muscles’ flexibility and is a less strenuous workout. Scuba diving also improves blood circulation in your body. Many studies have found that people who scuba dive frequently are less likely to suffer from strokes and heart attacks.
Calming Effects on Mind
Scuba diving can have a calming effect on your mind. The breathing techniques used in scuba diving are similar to the ones used in meditation. Along with breathing, the warm temperature of the water also calms your body and relaxes it, increasing the brain’s concentration and awareness. The activity is also visually interesting; observing the colorful marine life up-close can be memorable and help you live in the moment.
Seawater has purifying qualities which can remove impurities from your skin and make it glow. Diving during the daytime allows sun rays to boost vitamin D production in your skin, aiding cell growth, repair and metabolism. Drinking a lot of water after diving to replenish the dehydration caused by seawater exposure can help your body look fresh and young.
Scuba diving gives you a chance to explore the marine life you’ve always been fascinated by in nature documentaries. It also gives you a chance to witness the issues brought on by climate change and pollution in the ecosystem first-hand. It’s an activity without which any bucket list is incomplete.
