Diary #177 - Mindfulness and Exercise 2# - Swimming

2#  Swimming

One of the common reasons people practice mindfulness is to become more in-tune with the body.  Registering subtler tensions and other feelings can help me recognise my emotional state more easily. Consequently I can respond to life more wisely.


Any way that tunes me in to the body is helpful and swimming is fantastic for it. It engages the whole body and even the tiniest tweak can have an impact.


Swimming provides a very effective feedback loop for changes in movement, tensions and breathing, even more so if I am intentionally more present to the experience: more mindful.


I find that mindfulness and swimming really complement each other.
