5 health benefits of water sports

Water sports are a fun way to improve balance and coordination. Kayaking and paddleboarding are both great for upper body and core strength (and are much more fun than hitting the gym).

Most water sports are low impact so there is less risk of injury.

Water-based activities benefit the mind as well as the body and sports like kayaking can significantly reduce stress and anxiety, a combination of being outdoors and the soothing effects of water. 

They can also set your pulse racing if you are looking for some adrenaline, think white water rafting, kite surfing and canyoning. This can help to boost confidence and in the long term help you to manage stress better.

As with most other outdoor activities, water sports can help reduce blood pressure, burn calories and keep you fit and alert.
