There are a myriad of benefits of swimming. Besides the fact that it’s a great form of cardiovascular exercise for the whole body, recent studies have shown that swimming can also help reduce stress and relieve tension.
If you have young kids, it’s important that they learn to swim as early as possible, not only for the health benefits but also for their safety. According to the National Safe Kids Campaign, *among unintentional injuries, drowning is the leading cause of death for children 1-4 years of age and the second leading cause of death for children 5-14 years of age. As parents, it’s important that we are conscious about water safety for our kids.
Our boys love swimming and on top of that, we bought our current house with a swimming pool so it was only necessary that they learn how to swim. We enrolled them in professional swimming lessons near our home when they were 3 and 4 years old and it was one of the best decisions my husband and I made for them. They enjoy swimming and I love that they have found an excellent form of exercise as well!
