I' m going to describe a really healthy activity that I do, currently, which is swimming. I used to swim a lot when I was younger, but I've recently taken it up again, and I go a couple of times a week now I go swimming in a gym that I joined, which has a nice swimming pool. I tried going to my local public pool, but it was too busy and you couldn't really swim up and down in lanes there. So, I found a gym that has a pool, and it's usually quite empty, and I can have lane to myself and swim up and down. As I said, I do this hobby or activity alone. I don't go there with anyone; it's a solitary sport really, and I'm doing it for my own health reasons. Obviously, of course, there are other people in the pool when I'm there; sometimes you have to share a lane with another person or a couple of people. But, basically, I'm in there, focused, on my own, concentrating on my own swimming stroke and technique, and trying to improve my endurance and stamina as well And the reason I think this is a healthy sport. well, I think it's widely accepted that swimming is really healthy It's a good all-over body workout; its great cardiovascular exercise; it's a low-impact sport, so you're not expected to get any injuries as you might do if you were running, where there’s impact on the joints- with swimming you don’t have that. So, I think it's really good for the body, but it's also good for the mind. When get into the swimming pool, as soon as I hit the water it clears my mind; I’m focused only on one thing, which is my stroke, my technique, the breathing-it makes you think about your breathing as well, which is good. And I think it rejuvenates and reinvigorates you to be in the water It's a really relaxing experience.
