Parasailing: the perfect view of the water and the beach with the thrill of the sea breeze in your face. What’s there not to love? It’s a tourist favorite to relax and appreciate the vacation and get that adrenaline pumping too. Being on vacation doesn’t mean you can’t be healthy too! Here are the top 5 health benefits of parasailing brought to you by Health Fitness Revolution.
Parasailing means putting on a harness with a parachute and get pulled by a boat (or sometimes car) and fly high into the air. It is a gentle takeoff but it will get your adrenaline pumping. Adrenaline helps boost your immune system and get your heart rate up which improves your cardiovascular health overall.
You are out in nature, soaking up all the sun and vitamin D it has to offer. Vitamin D boosts your immune system, promote calcium absorption which makes your bones stronger and reduces inflammation.
Once you’re in the air, and you get over the initial “I’m flying” feeling, parasailing can be extremely relaxing. The floating sensation will help you release stress. and you’ll have an amazing view to appreciate too!
Salty Sea Air
Breathing in fresh sea air is great for your respiratory system. It helps deal with symptoms of asthma, sinus pressure, and bronchitis. Ocean air is charged with hydrogen ions, which absorb oxygen and balance serotonin, improving your mood.
Helps You Get Away
You are floating way up in the sky, meaning you won’t have time to get into arguments or get stressed checking your emails and texts. You get a chance to forget about everything that worries you and focus on the view and spending time with someone special or maybe just yourself (a little me-time never hurt nobody). This can do wonders for your mental health.
