Diving is not just for an extra pump of adrenaline. This sports also contributes to a balanced body, mind, and spirit—just like yoga and meditation. Here are 6 reasons how diving can give you the same benefits as meditation:
1.Diving allows us to breathe consciously and deliberately.
2.The breathing pattern in diving leads to a calmer mind and body.
3.The mind’s focus is gradually turning inwards when we dive. And even when our mind wanders, we will always go back to focusing on our breath.
4.Diving allows us to achieve a singular focus—making us one with our surroundings.
5.Diving clears our minds. A myriad of our everyday activities can cause anxiety and stress, underwater is a calm and quiet place where we can just let our minds be still.
6.Scuba diving helps us lead a peaceful state-of-mind and achieve equanimity.
