Human beings love to swim. Since ancient times we had a fascination with water, and what lives in it. Swimming has a lot of health benefits, like reducing blood pressure and blood sugar levels and research has even shown that it can reduce stress and anxiety. There is nothing like taking a dip in cool water, letting the water encapsulate your body, with its’ surface tension pushing you upwards, feeling like you are in space, free from gravity. Research has also shown that swimming is one of the best physical activities for losing weight and building endurance.
