Dubai has been one of the most popular tourist destinations and the best country to live in. However, with temperatures rarely dropping below 30°C, its desert climate is inescapable, unless in winter. Unfortunately, the scorching heat of this city can also cause several changes within our body, both mentally and physically- sometimes, they are too tough to deal with.
With summer around the corner, we have put together how watersports can wash down the intense temperature rise and help you cope with the heat better.
Summer is a prime time for heat stress. Heat stress can result in headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, upset stomach, vomiting, irritability, confusion, and even cause heatstroke in worse cases.
While cooling off your body with watersports can reduce body heat, it can also reduce stress. When you’re in the water, the aquatic environment makes you feel light and happy with enhanced tranquillity. This helps you relax the mind away from stress. Not to mention, when you’re on the water, engaging in a sport, you feel more energized, focused, and be able to get away from not just heat stress but the stress of everyday life.
On the other hand, watersports like jetskiing and flyboarding are exhilarating, which releases a chemical called endorphins. These are chemicals naturally produced by your nervous system to cope up with stress. These chemicals are also called “feel-good” chemicals because they can control your stress and boost happiness.
Better than indoor exercising
During summer, many people switch to indoor exercising, which often becomes ineffective because of a lack of motivation. During the summer months in Dubai, many gyms even offer promotions and discounts to draw in more members as many opt for indoor exercising.
Some watersports are a great way to wash down the summer heat while keeping your body fit. Depending on your weight, age, and time spent, some intense watersports can easily burn a couple of hundred calories. For example, jetski riding for half an hour can burn up to 238 calories.
And the best part of intense watersports is that you won’t have to follow the same routine as workouts because it very often depends on the waves. Especially with watersports like jetskiing and flyboarding, there are ample techniques and stunts to learn, and no two experiences are the same. Many medical researchers have advised that engaging in watersports regularly can help you remain healthy and not get overweight.
A fun way to enjoy the heat
Last but not least, enjoying summer is a real task for many, with some barely stepping out. If you’re looking to do something that you can enjoy while washing down the body heat, apart from waterparks- then watersports are the ideal option.
While some watersports come with an age limit, watersports like jetskiing is a perfect family-friendly and safe watersport that is enjoyable during the summer.
There are plenty of jetski tours that allow riders to explore famous landmarks, architecture, and buildings in Dubai while on the water – which is truly a different way of washing down the intense heat while enjoying summer.
