We, modern people suffer. Chronic stress slowly eats us alive. We have a tendency to imagine threat out of every banality. Complex settings of city dwellers and endless stimulation of crowds of strangers living side by side offer endless opportunities to worry. Money, career, power struggle, family life. To live with unresolved stressors is like being closed with a tiger in a cage for years. Freediving and its lessons may help. Holding your breath teaches you how to stay calm and rational even in life threatening situations, when your mind is panicking. It brings about life reckoning before you really close your eyes on a deathbed. What is important is suddenly much clearer. And you become healthier on the way.
