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 night’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:
“Swimming is obviously close to my heart and it’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 I’ve always known anyway!
“The fact that it has significant benefits both in body and mind is a great reason to get back in the pool and that’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!”
