Rules of behavior on the water

But if we will know how to behave, and be able to control yourself, we can avoid many unpleasant situations.

What we primarily afraid that swam far from shore - of course, seizures.We have a child repeat them, they say do not swim where deep, and then suddenly ... In fact, no "suddenly" does not happen!

Let's see: cramps - a painful involuntary contraction of the muscles that have become - allegedly - the cause of many deaths.This is nonsense, just forget and not twist the themselves.Seizures occur not only in water, they can cause any awkward or abrupt our movement.Just on land they do not scare us.But in the water, we only think about them, as if they suddenly started, by the way, that very often provokes them.

Do not be afraid of cramps!If you feel during the voyage that cramped leg (usually calf muscle), but you are calm, you are not afraid of cramps.

You just take a deep breath, take a float position (also called pose barrels , ie immerse your head in the water so that the surface is vis

ible only to your back) and then take up the foot and toes foot noteand pull them over.Then try to completely relax and swim leg, without impacting the leg, which has reduced, while actively working with his hands.

After seizures second place "by horror stories" related to water, take eddies and funnel .Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?), The general public is often completely wrong idea about their origin.Funnels, which may appear to you the danger of the voyage, formed exclusively near the waterworks, and there, as you know, swimming is prohibited.As for whirlpools, they are found in our rivers is extremely rare.They are formed mostly over any underwater obstacles - a large stone or wood, with the bridge supports, the rocky promontory at the concave bank.Depending on the strength of the flow eddies are stronger or weaker.But even the strongest you can not tighten.If you swim well (it does not mean that you MMR or master of sports of swimming, I mean, good for an amateur), you can easily overcome the whirlpool, if you go with the flow and do not stop.

And one more, perhaps the most powerful of our phobia - it seagrass beds .The most important thing to keep in control.Since algae are very easy to deal with, just do not cheat yourself and do not give free rein to imagination, thinking that they can be life-threatening.For example, ribbon-like algae, such as sedges, often grow on shallow places that you can go on foot.If you met overgrown lilies and water lilies, the stems of which go to the very bottom, and you hesitate plexus hand movements, kept afloat by helping yourself down, enter the air, head down into the water and calm, do not panic, empty hands.

Another useful tip - learn to relax on the water, for this, lying on his back, pull straight relaxed his hands behind his head, which is to the level of the eyebrows need to be immersed in water.If this is not enough and the legs start to descend, stick out of the water fingers or hands and feet immediately emerge.Your body will take the horizontal position of the equilibrium.

Lying on your back, take a deep breath and hold your breath for 5-10 seconds, then slowly exhale and inhale again quickly.

useful to master the technique of rest to when you start because of anything to be nervous during the voyage, you could just kick back and relax.Then, coming to himself, to return to shore.

All of the above tips on how to deal with unforeseen circumstances - for lovers of extreme sports, as in areas intended for bathing or algae, or whirlpools, or craters there.But when we decide to swim in unknown waters for us, always need to be mentally and physically prepared for any eventuality.It is very important to learn to control themselves in unforeseen circumstances, just do not let fear take possession of them.At the moment of panic attack, try to convince yourself that once you calm down and thinking, you will be much easier to understand the situation.

Be careful and take care!
