The Mind-Body Benefits of Swimming on your Period

The Mind-Body Benefits of Swimming on your Period

Love swimming but letting your periods hold you back? Read on!

Did you know swimming can be an incredible way to nurture your mind and body? And you can do it when you've got your period.

Get Moving

When you swim, you’re getting a low-impact, full-body workout. The water's buoyancy supports your joints, making swimming a great exercise for when you have cramps or discomfort. Swimming also promotes blood circulation, which can reduce the dreaded bloat. Hurray!

Mood Booster

We all know that exercise has an overall calming effect on the mind. All those endorphins your brain produces during exercise? They’ll help melt your worries away by naturally improving your mood and reducing stress.

Water's therapeutic properties amplify these effects too, creating a sense of tranquillity and mental clarity.

Body Positive

Just by doing some underwater exercise, you shift focus to celebrating what your body CAN achieve. Swimming helps you appreciate your body's strength, resilience and ability.
