When we breathe throughout a dive, we tend to breathe slowly and deeply, similar to the breathing we do whilst meditating.
Slowed breathing induces a state of calm, whilst the diver enjoys their underwater surroundings. Everything that may be happening to the person in their everyday lives including; work issues, family issues and money worries all get left at the surface.
All problems are forgotten during a dive.
Having this ‘time out’ gives the body a chance to rest and bring their body and nervous system back to a natural balance. Studies have shown that having a relaxed and calm mind has been known to promote a positive mental attitude, helping you deal with your issues in a calm and rational way without feelings of depression.
