Life can be stressful and with that stress comes high blood pressure for some people. You can lower your blood pressure when you swim and swimming will also help you get healthier and maybe even lose weight! It’s a win, win, win, right?
When you swim you’re getting in shape in a way that is no impact on your muscles and joints. For individuals who are overweight or who have pain in their joints, swimming is an ideal no impact way to get into a workout routine. Even overweight individuals can go from being couch potatoes to swimming slow laps or even jogging in the pool as a way to ease into a healthier lifestyle.
Swimming has been found to reduce your blood pressure and this leads to better artery health and improves cardiovascular health and lower blood pressure.
Lower your blood pressure when you swim
Talk with your doctor before you start any swim routine or any exercise workout but he will probably say yes to swimming! Swimming strengthens your heart, increases your lung capacity and gives a full body work out every time you’re in the water. Swimming is also ideal for those who want to lose weight, are injured, and for anyone of any age.
When you swim before bedtime you may also find that you sleep better. Insomnia and lack of sleep can lead to more health issues so getting a great night’s sleep will help you feel better and be healthier.
