Swimming *****My History of Water***** My lasting memory of early reading experiences is that I would read the pictures rather than the words. I would be quite happy creating my own little stories from the illustrations, instead of depending on what the author had actually written on ... Read review

SWIMMING WITH THE FISHIES AND THE MER-FOLK Review with images

AdvantagesA GREAT WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH, BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE AND MAKE YOU SMILE

DisadvantagesCAN BE A WEE BIT CHILLY IN THE WINTER ... BRRRRR!!!!

"...then to be a huge swimming pool, my fear of other, smaller things just disappeared. I became confident in myself, as though somehow I had proven to myself that if I had the mental strength to not be afraid that my feet were not on the floor of the pool, then I certainly had the mental strength to overcome my fear of failure in the reading department. Of course, at the time, I didn't dissect it in such a grown up, psychological way. But I felt it, ..." Read review

Water Fun

AdvantagesIt is fun and could save your or someone else's life

DisadvantagesNone

"...isn’t quite what we call swimming but that is only due to the lack of the newborn babe’s co-ordination. Most people cannot swim (but they can float) because of a lack of confidence or some past encounter has frightened them of water. Even a shouted warning to a toddler not to go near the water because they could fall in and drown, could be enough to put a person off swimming.

Water Therapy

AdvantagesGood all round exercise for all.

DisadvantagesCould have to overcome fear of water, some pools expensive.

"...of water, but I find swimming one of the only forms of exercise I can manage and as such it is also very relaxing and therapeutic. My local leisure centre offers a few pools - leisure pool with bubble pools, wave machines and flumes - learner pool, lane-swimming pool and diving pool. Entrance fees vary depending on the day and time but are usually around £3-£4 for at least a guaranteed 90 minutes in the water. When I go into the swimming baths ..." Read review
