The Benefits of the Ocean
Updated: Feb 20, 2021
Who doesn’t love a good dip in the ocean? Since the water and weather has been getting warmer, I just crave daily ocean swims. It's so therapeutic and relaxing. If I’m feeling stressed out and tired, one of my favourite things to do is jump in the ocean. The ocean water is revitalising and so good for the body.
Ocean water contains many minerals needed by your body to help heal and detoxify. Some cultural beliefs are that ocean water's mineral balance provides healing from every illness and skin disorder as well as serving as a spiritual rite in many cultures. In recent years, studies regarding ocean water benefits have shown that conditions such as arthritis, psoriasis and even depression are improved by ocean water swimming. The iodine in ocean water boosts your thyroid function, increasing your immune system. Ocean swimming is known for preventative treatment from certain illnesses and infections. Ocean water also increases the amount of oxygen carried throughout your bloodstream and provides the nutrients required by your blood cells to fight off free radicals.
So, instead of reaching for another coffee, why not jump in the ocean and revitalise and improve your health and well being, especially after a yoga class:)
