Swimming is one of the best ideas, if you want to do a soft sport and minimize the risk of injury, although depending on the intensity of the training, it can still become a high intensity exercise. The benefits of this sport are extensive and not only limited to the physical body, since your mood is also positively affected by practicing this sport. Swimming improves lung and cardiovascular capacity, as it promotes resistance and efficiency of oxygen consumption. It is also very interesting for flexibility, since many muscles and joints are used at the same time without any significant impact, which also makes it ideal for elderly people or people who are in the process of recovering from certain injuries, and do not want to lose shape. In addition, as indicated above, swimming is beneficial for your mental state as well, since it can improve sleep, due to its sedative effects. It can improve memory and intelligence, because it clears the mind, and helps you to eliminate tension, reduce anxiety, and to have a more positive mood. There are many advantages, as you can see, when it comes to practicing this full body sport, recommended for all types of people and ages. Even babies benefit from contact with water and the bonds that are created with the parents that accompany them during this wet activity.
