Boat Diving Boards and Scuba Diving

If you own a boat, you might already know that scuba diving is a very relaxing and enjoyable sport. But what many people don’t know is that it is also good for your mind, body and soul. That’s right, scuba diving has many benefits.

Scuba divers have long recognized that they felt better after they spent time enjoying their favorite sport. Lillipad Marine, your source for boat diving boards, offers the benefits of scuba diving.

Stress Relief

Think about the way you breathe while meditating or doing yoga. Well, when you go scuba diving, you breathe the same way, slowly and deeply. Slow breathing induces a calm state and makes you super aware of your surroundings.

It also makes you forget about everything that has been happening to you as of late. Any work issues you may have or worries about money or relationships get left on the surface. During the dive, you basically give yourself a time out and a chance for your body and mind to bring back a natural balance.

Studies show that having a calm and relaxed mind can promote a positive mental attitude and help you deal with feelings of depression.

Socializing

It is very unlikely that you are scuba diving all on your own. You are either going with a family member or friend. If there are others who are scuba diving, you will feel like you’re a part of a bigger group. Scuba diving promotes a sense of community.

It is an incredible feeling sharing a wonderful experience with a like-minded individual.

Interaction with Marine Life

You will be flooded with excitement when you come face to face with marine wildlife. Seeing corals, critters and a variety of fish will put almost anyone in a good mood. Scientists believe that when we are subjected to intense and bright colors, it helps promote feelings of happiness. Also, the color blue has been known to induce a calming effect on the mind.

Healing Waters

Whether you are in the bathtub, a hot tub or the sea or ocean, water has many healing effects. The water promotes well-being, happiness and a sense of security. This is likely because we felt this way when in our mother’s womb.

Physical Fitness

Scuba diving offers a very good workout. You will burn about 500 calories for every hour you spend in the water. That is about the same amount of calories you would burn spending an hour at the gym. But we are going to guess that most people would much rather spend that hour scuba diving.

And because of the natural resistance of water, you won’t even notice that you are getting a workout. In addition, you can bet that you are working out most of your muscles, not just a select few.

Sunlight

The exposure you get to sunlight while scuba diving ensures your body is getting plenty of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps in the absorption of calcium and helps cells pass calcium to each other.

So plan on going scuba diving on your next boating trip. And don’t forget to purchase a boat diving board from Lillipad Marine.
