New Year’s Diving Resolution #2: Dive more!
Dive more. It’s easier said than done, right? Who has the time? Well, 2020 is the year to make more time.
How? Find a time that works in your schedule and then create a recurring event in your calendar with reminders for that time and do it. It’s just like scheduling in your work or exercise, but much more fun!
New Year’s Diving Resolution #3: Make diving your exercise
Is ‘exercise more’ already on your list of New Year’s Resolutions? Hate exercise, though? We hear you and we have a solution: Make diving your exercise!
Yes, diving is a great form of exercise. In fact, PADI has done quite a bit of research on scuba diving and fitness, and estimates that an average shore-dive in temperate water burns as much as 600 calories per hour — the same as jogging!
So, what are you waiting for? Get diving and get fit in 2020 (it sure beats renewing your gym membership).
New Year’s Diving Resolution #4: Plan a dive holiday
Don’t just plan a regular holiday this year (boring), plan a dive holiday and join the Dolphin Scuba team for a holiday of a lifetime.
Every year we organise and host 2 to 3 international group holidays and each itinerary is carefully curated, ensuring you get the most out of your time at the destination.
