Swim Away from Stress: Benefits of Aquatic Exercise for Mental Health

Swim Away from Stress: Benefits of Aquatic Exercise for Mental Health cover

The Gallup State of the Global Workplace Report in 2023 revealed an alarming finding: Australia shares second place with New Zealand for having the second-highest stress level rates at 47%, next only to the US, Canada, and East Asia.

In today's fast-paced world, stress has become a constant companion, taking a toll on our mental and emotional well-being. Stress is more than just a fleeting feeling of pressure or tension – it’s a pervasive force that can wreak havoc on our mental health if left unchecked. Chronic stress has also been linked to a wide range of psychological issues, including anxiety, depression, and burnout.

While traditional methods of stress management may offer relief to some, others seek alternative approaches that provide holistic benefits. At Healthstin Elizabeth, our Exercise Professionals recommend aquatic exercise to help manage stress.

Aquatic exercise includes various activities performed in water, ranging from swimming and water aerobics to aqua yoga and hydrotherapy. What sets aquatic exercise apart is its ability to provide a full-body workout while minimising stress on the joints. This is a great benefit for individuals living with mobility issues or chronic pain conditions.

Water offers gentle resistance that provides a unique yet effective way to engage the body and mind simultaneously. As you glide through the water, your body becomes less tense, your circulation is improved, and your brain gets flooded with feel-good endorphins. Moreover, the rhythmic nature of aquatic movements induces a meditative state, quieting the chatter of the mind and promoting inner peace.
