Good Health Is Wealth

If I had the option to choice between wealth and health, I will choose health.

Many will agreed with me here. But certainly some will not.

Health is wealth indeed. With good health, one has a strong body in which to go for and make wealth.

It is with a sound healthy mind and body that one can brainstorm and create all the natural resources one can imagine.

With this thinking, we need a good healthy foods,that is well prepared to sustain the body.

Not only this, but vigorous to moderate exercise that induced breathing and blood flow to carry oxygen and dissolved food nutrients in the blood stream all over the body.

Good health is wealth indeed.

Three Physical Activities That You Can Do Without Part1
Physical activities are for developing the body. They give sound healthy benefits that befit the organ, nerves and muscles of the body.

Without these, the body tends to degenerate. Muscles for example lose their tone.

The three physical activities below will suit all round body development.

You cannot do without them. There seem to be natural as the fresh air you breathe daily. You can add your favorite, for example tai chin and or aerobic dancing as supplementary.

Welcome to the world of physical activities and enjoy.


Swimming can be fun. But it can be intimidating if you do not know how to swim.

When you swim, every muscles of the body must be brought into action. 

In reality, there is no exercise that benefits the body more than swimming.

You disagree? Okay. Take cycling. It is a sporting activity that is exhilarating and gives thrill. What part of the body that is very active in the event? It is the legs.

The arms and hands stay stationary on the cycle handle. Pedal action from the legs benefits the trunk more. But it transported mostly blood flow to the rest and upper part of the body. It also has positive effect on the upper part of the body in an indirect manner, for example muscle toning. So much benefit from cycling.

In swimming, the legs, hands and arms are employed to move forward, backward or static.

Compare these two activities in terms of dynamic action and your will and see that swimming is a plus.

Because the arm, shoulder and leg is brought into play.

Benefits Of Swimming

The best benefits that swimming released to the body include the following.

It increases the rate of heart beat.

Swimming relief mental tension and so induces relaxation.

It cools the body during a hot climate.

Swimming gives relief to arthritis and rheumatoid pains.

Post traumatic therapy.

Hydro therapy.

Welcome to the world of swimming.

Learning To Swim

Learning to swim is easy. It gives fun and leisure.

The challenge is that most people do not know how to breathe while under the water.

How do we breathe while under water?

This is even much easier than the swimming action itself! Learning to breathe under water is fun! It is easy as adding 1 and 1 to get 2.

A simple action of breathing technique will be demonstrated here. Take with you a big bowl ¾ full of water. Now take a deep breath (do not breathe out) and immersed your face in the bowl of water. 

Breathe out through your mouth if you cannot breathe out with your nose while your face is immersed in the water. Some find it hard to breathe out though the nose while immersing the face in water. Continue to breathe out via, the mouth and notice bubbles rising as you breathe out. While you breathe out, you also at the same time breathe in air indirectly in the water. This is one way swimmers breathe during a swimming meet.
Practice this exercise anytime you take a bath. Become use to it. By the time you find yourself at the swimming pool, all hassle about breathing under water during swimming is gone!

Okay, next learn to float.
If you can breathe under water or above the water but you cannot float, you can’t swim period.
Learning to float is much easier than breathing under water.

Here we go. In a big bath, fill water to ¾ of level. Lie with your hands by your side with head raised but shoulder under water. Do not attempt to raise your legs. The body will float. We called this a back float.

You can even do this at the shallow side of the swimming pool or the river or beach.
Stand and check if water is at hip level. Now, place the palms of your two hands at the bottom of the swimming pool. Keep your shoulder under water. Your body including the legs will float. This is a front float.

How about moving forward with the palms like a wheel barrow? Move one hand forward palms down one after the other. Do this for some time and have fun. Then see if you can alternately kick the legs up and down in the water, but do not raise the legs out of the water. You will fall forward because the kicking propels your body forward. Just blow water out with your mouth and maintain your breathe.

If you can ride a bicycle, and who does not these days? You can do this pedal action in the river or the swimming pool.

Stand in water that is at chest level but below the shoulder. Lift one leg up and bring it down alternating one leg after the other like the pedal action on a bicycle. The palms of the hands likewise cupped to paddle the water up and down. As you paddle with one hand, bring the other up between the chest and the belly button level like the leg actions. This will keep you stationary on the water. With head above water, you can thus breathe in and out normally as on dry ground.

A simple action to begin swimming I like to introduce is the dog paddle. Every person can do the dog paddle. You breathe with your head above the water like the pedal action above.

Like as said earlier, the pedal action keeps you static in the water. You are at a vertical level. Now if you thrust the hands forward and continue the pedal action with the palms cupped, and at the same time kicking the legs into a push and pull action, you are likely to move forward. You are now lying horizontal in the water. This is the dog paddle. This is how a dog swam across a lake or small river or stream.

If you think you have learn to breathe, float and swim by reading this story, share it.

Other benefits you get from swimming is large or strong muscle development.

Many and varied outfits are available in most sports shops.

Women war variety of swimming trunks, but especially bikinis for this.

Men wear boxers or pants. Some men wear swimming jerseys.
