A new study by British Gas SwimBritain published today reveals swimming can increase positivity, sleep quality and energy levels.
Want to feel more content, less grumpy and finally get a good nightâ€™s sleep? Swimming could be the answer, a new study by British Gas SwimBritain conducted by Mindlab International reveals.
The report found that taking a regular dip at your local pool can make you feel happier as well as healthier, with participants reporting an increase of 35% in positivity during a major new four week study.
The results have also shown that the low impact sport is a tonic for everyday life, increasing levels of sleep quality (+40%) and energy levels (+51%) and fitness levels (+15%) during the course of the study.
Olympic Swimmer, Becky Adlington added:
â€œSwimming is obviously close to my heart and itâ€™s my goal to help the nation rediscover their love of the water, so this research is really good news for the sport, and something Iâ€™ve always known anyway!
â€œThe fact that it has significant benefits both in body and mind is a great reason to get back in the pool and thatâ€™s why I am a big fan of British Gas SwimBritain, a fun relay challenge taking place this summer, which is encouraging as many people as possible to give themselves a swimming goal and see the benefits for themselves!â€
