The health benefits of swimming in the sea

So much has been written about the additional benefits of swimming in the sea over
a traditional swimming pool.

Whilst we do have a fabulous salt water swimming pool available to our guests at Bawah Reserve, it’s obvious why most prefer to make use of the beautiful, crystal clear water directly in front of their suites.  But apart from the obvious, did you know there are some amazing health benefits that makes swimming in the sea seem more appealing than ever?  We’ve rounded up our favourite benefits for you:


1) Good for the skin

Woman and Home - Salt

“Sea water cleans your skin. The mineral salts team up with the sun to regenerate
your skin. As a result, ulcers, lupus, acne and psoriasis are some of the diseases
that can be easily cured with sea water.” Surfer Today

 

2) Good for the body

“Seawater is used by many for overall improved health and well-being. Swimming in
warm seawater purportedly activates the body's healing mechanisms to fight
conditions such as asthma, arthritis, bronchitis and inflammatory diseases, as well as
common aches and pains.” – Livestrong


3) Good for your lifestyle

“Sea swimming goes hand in hand with being active, as it normally involves a
walk or cycle to the beach – so the fresh air, movement and a swim are the
perfect remedy…Being able to go for a long swim or a quick dip is so
energising that it makes you want to look after yourself, and kick-starts a
sensible approach to health and wellbeing.” – Woman & Home


4) Good for your mind

“The weightlessness of water can also have a calming effect on the mind, even
changing or slowing down brain waves. It can help provide a distraction from life,
giving a sense of mindfulness, which is a state in which one is aware of one’s
surroundings in a meditative sort of fashion.” – The Conversation



5) Good for your mood

“There’s a reason the sea beckons us when we’re seeking respite.
‘The sound and vision of the ocean lifts our mood,’ says consultant psychiatrist Dr
Arghya Sarkhel. ‘The touch of sand and the smell of a seaside breeze leads to
relaxation. On a biological level, this audio-visual stimulus incites our
parasympathetic nervous system – that activates “rest and digest”, as opposed to
“fight or flight”.’ – Woman & Home
