There is a saying: “Only a fool, does not fear the ocean”. Well I would not say that I fear the ocean anymore, but I have deep respect for it. I live close to the ocean and I use it several times a week. I love doing different linds of exercises and running at the beach and I swim as often as I can.
Once I really did fear the ocean. You know the deep blue sea, not knowing what is beneath you, and the fear of drowning.
The ocean has helped me to overcome this in a long process where I have forced myself to feel comfortable in the water, in swimming pools and in the ocean. I have learned breathing techniques and how to hold your breath and diving pushing your limits. It all is about learning to relax and convincing yourself that you can do it and it is all right.
It´s all about knowing and sensing,
relaxing and overcoming,
pushing and doing
Swiming and diving is just good for your mental and physical health. If you are not comfortable with it. Start the process. It is a fantastic journey inside of you.
It is a process you alone can start, and you alone can work with and finish in the end.
Do it for yourself. It is a long journey that you will never regret.
