Escape the Mental Stress of COVID by Learning to Surf
surfing with 'Indica' is the best way you can start your surfing journey.
Indica Surf School, based in Mulki, which has started offering lessons since the past four weeks. Do not let COVID bring you down and depress you, get surfing and feel yourself energised with a much more positive, healthier outlook on life!
While the world is experiencing such a terrible craziness due to COVID that continues to plague all corners of the globe, many people are going through a lot of hardship. The financial hardship is well known and understood, being much discussed and talked about. What is not discussed and considered so openly is the stress, tension and huge impact on the mental state of many people. Having businesses affected, not having continuous work, being in lock down, having had restricted movements for so long, there will be large numbers of people having a hard time mentally. This number is unfortunately going to continue to grow.
Sadly though, it is a subject that is very often not discussed and very much ignored. Yet, it is a major problem and will be one of the greatest long-lasting aftereffects of this devastating Corona Virus pandemic. Surfing and activities in the ocean are one of the best forms of combatting this hugely silent debilitating illness.
Being in the ocean, learning a new sport, feeling the thrills and exhilaration of catching and riding waves have very well documented benefits to help overcome mental stress, tension and mental illness. Surfing takes a person’s mind off issues and off any problems, being fully focussed on catching the next wave, standing up and riding it as best as possible. Being in the ocean and surfing, being at one with nature, brings a centring, a calmness and a feeling of peace within.
There are many surf schools around the Indian Coastline, on both the east and west coasts that have opened back up.
