S always says I’m far too optimistic when it comes to gauging the temperature. I have to agree somewhat, but I just cannot wait to get into the sea and enjoy the Cornish sunshine. That said, even when it’s a little overcast, it’s certainly warm enough to go for a dip in the sea in the evenings, so that’s exactly how we’ve spent the night.
I’ve put together my a few reasons why I’ve added sea swimming to your fitness regime, and you should too.
It doesn’t cost a penny
I’m a regular spa-goer but during the summer, why spend money to go swimming when you have the gorgeous ocean on your doorstep? Granted, you don’t get a sauna but you do get the sun beaming down on you and incredible views of the coat, so it’s a no brainer!
You’ll quality of sleep will improve
I find myself tossing and turning in the evenings because I struggle to switch off after a long day in the office. If you go for a long sea swim though, trust me – it’ll exhaust you! There’s nothing better than coming home to a hot water and curling up in comfies with a good book.
Your body will thank you
Physically and mentally you’ll feel 100 times better, believe me. Swimming against the tide builds muscle and tones your body, we’ve already spoke about how it helps you sleep better but it’s also a God sent for your skin. All that salt works absolute wonders.
Look after yourself though and be sure to wrap up and get yourself a hot drink for afterwards.
