7 benefits of swimming in the sea in winter
Bathing in the sea clears our minds and gives us happiness. The cold water and the energy of the waves make us release endorphins, serotonin and dopamine (the hormones of well-being). Moreover, the tranquillity of the beach helps us to find peace and relaxation.
Helps to avoid insomnia
Do you have insomnia problems? Well, swimming in the sea in winter will help you avoid it. Because when you swim, you exercise, so you go to bed more tired and, bathing helps you to release stress and therefore to be more relaxed. The effect? We achieve a deeper and more restful sleep.
Improves the intimate life
The increase of testosterone and oestrogen levels improves couples’ love life.
Goodbye to colds
Cold water activates the immune system and thus increases the production of red blood cells. Thanks to this the defences become stronger and we avoid the dreaded colds and flu.
Strenghtens your bones
Seawater contains substances that are beneficial for the body (such as calcium and phosphorus) that are bound in the human body and have the effect, among other things, of strengthening our bones to the maximum.
Improves blood ciruculation
The pressure and the lower water temperature activate our blood system, improving its function as well as that of our heart.
Tones and illuminates the skin
The cold has a toning effect on the skin and the minerals in the water help to nourish it, maintaining its elasticity and improving its appearance.
