Waterpolo: skin and morale at the top
This is the effect you weren't expecting but that everyone will notice: water is the best ally for a healthy skin and an unfailing morale.
Water has thermo-massage properties. While playing, during each of your movements, the water that you move will act as a massage on your skin. It's a bit like spending your entire session being massaged, without realizing it. Not bad isn't it? The tissues of your skin are thus drained, reducing water retention and at the same time, cellulite. A little bonus if you play in the sea: salt water doubles its beneficial properties for your skin! It is an excellent exfoliant and purifier that will do you the greatest good.
The other great unsuspected benefit of playing in the water is its antidepressant virtue. We know the contributions of the game on this point, but being in the water multiplies this aspect. Thanks to the feeling of well-being that sport generates, falling asleep is easier, internal and external tensions are appeased. Sport is in fact an antidepressant, of which the effect sometimes exceeds the ones of medication. It is also the best way to fight against anxiety. Homeostasis, caused physically by the practice, has beneficial consequences on morale with a feeling of general calm.
I was talking at the very beginning of this article about the virtues of the group in the practice of water polo and this is obviously one of the factors of good mental health. Team sports promote exchanges and socialization. Through them, the risk of feeling alone is reduced and I can always find someone with whom to share my passions, including those that are not related to polo ;)
Moreover, whether it's a very good pass, a successful shot or a phase of play in which I placed myself well, I will always find something to be happy during my water polo session. And that's always good for self-esteem ;)
You also have to imagine that water polo is not just a pool or indoor sport. Outdoor polo, practiced at sea, in a lake or in any outdoor space where it is possible to set a goal, is the equivalent of swimming in open water. It therefore allows you to benefit from contact with nature, soothing and de-stressing.
Sport, in the water, and in a group: with waterpolo, you have the sport that brings together the most optimal conditions for high morale!
