I went to an aqua fit class at my friend’s pool earlier this evening. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I LOVE aqua fit, but then again, I love anything that allows me to be in or around water (so long as it’s not freezing coldšŸ„¶)!

I don’t claim to know the exact science behind why being in water or even just surrounded by it seems to have a very powerful calming effect on me.

Whether I’m submerged in water while swimming at a friend’s pool or taking a relaxing bath or while being mesmerized by the sight of a beautiful flowing waterfall or listening to the soothing sound of the waves crashing to the shore while sitting on the beach or lying on a boat; I find it very therapeutic and healing (I’m not even opposed to dancing in the rain!).

Water has the ability to put me into a meditative state which is not an easy feat for me because meditation in most other forms leaves me screaming for the nearest exit but when I am in or near water I very often feel at peace; it inspires my creativity and gives me some mental clarity. 

It also seems to have become an especially beneficial way for me to help ease some of the physical tensions I’ve been experiencing for well over three months now.

I think maybe in my next life I should come back as a mermaid?!
