Swedish Fish Aqua Life. For some people, fishing is a tedious activity. But not a few are actually used as hobbies. The hobby owners are even willing to sit for hours in fishing waiting for the bait to be struck by fish. Although the resulting catch may not be more than the costs incurred. Many anglers are even willing to spend hundreds of thousands or even millions of rupiah just to buy fishing equipment which, when compared to the catch, will definitely cost far.
Although called a strange hobby, apparently fishing also has health benefits. The activities that are often carried out by Adam's people are called to make someone happier and fitter.
Reported by the page of the Huffington Post, Monday (8/9/2014), here are some benefits of fishing for your health.
According to anglers, the activity of throwing a hook, waiting for fish, and pulling a hook is a stress relief activity. "Only by doing activities that reduce pressure can create feelings of pleasure," said CEO of Recretional Boating and Fishing Foundation, Frank Petterson.
Maintain Physical Fitness
In addition to fishing ponds, other fishing spots generally require extra energy to reach there. For example by rowing canoe, cycling, climbing hills, or walking. It is all cardiovascular activity.
Besides these two benefits, fishing activities also have other benefits to make your life better, such as:
Fishing is a fun hobby. By fishing, one gets an interesting experience and a special sensation when he gets a catch with his fishing pole. Fishing locations are also a place for vacation and tourism for families.
Fishing can also give a patient effect in an effort to achieve something. This is reflected in the moments of fishing, it takes a lot of time, and even hours waiting for bait to be eaten by fish, many times try to catch fish that eat bait. An effort that turns out to exercise patience.
Improve Concentration Ability
Fishing can also improve one's ability to concentrate. This is reflected in moments where you have to continue to concentrate and focus on your fishing rod since melting the hook even when the hook is struck by fish. In fighting with fish, high concentration is needed until the fish gives up. You even have to be smart in applying fishing techniques to get a lot of catch.
Not only good for health, fishing hobbies also bring many friends and expand relationships, where anglers can exchange ideas and information about their hobbies. Not infrequently from these hobbies created friendships and even family relationships to become business relationships.
Fishing activities are even used as a therapy to improve mental health. Greater Glasgow Mental Hospital and Clyde Mental Hospital are two mental hospitals in Scotland that use fishing technique therapy to improve the mental health of their patients. David Potter, staff at Leverndale Mental Health Hospital and Mark Aitchison and John Kelly from the Dykebar Mental Health Hospital have sparked the idea of therapy recently.
