It’s very important to make exercise and healthy lifestyle a part of your daily routine. It should not be something that you do just in the spring and summer but something that you carry on through the wintertime. Staying active has been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Apart from preventing so many diseases, an active lifestyle also helps you stimulate your brain, which helps you alleviate stress and anxiety. Above all, you can easily get addicted to that wonderful high it gives you and you can develop some really good positive habits.

The great thing about swimming is you can get in a pool and you don’t even know you’re sweating and you remain cool as you are doing it, so it actually makes you want to work out more. If you switch strokes while you are in the pool and do a little bit of backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly along with the freestyle, you’re actually going to be working so many muscles that you didn’t even know exist.
