6 REASONS WHY PEOPLE SCUBA DIVE
From the beginning of humanity, we (humans) were always curious about our surroundings. Feeling that there is something unknown and unexplored always attracted people who seek adventures and new places. Hunger for new stuff is humanities power engine that pushes us forward and improves us. As oceans are about 70% of our planet Earth there still a lot more to explore and discover.
First steps in scuba diving are usually frightening and for most people not so easy to take. Our body is not used to breath underwater and our brains need to adapt to new feelings and surrounding around us. This takes time. If you tried snorkeling or free diving it may be as easy as couple of seconds to feel comfortable underwater or it may take even hours until your brain adapts, but this is all natural.
According to scientists, then we have new, unknown things in our life, it could be anything from new type of tasty ice cream to traveling into space, our brain makes endorphins and they are primary impacting our happiness. They are our hormones of happiness that everyone wants to have as much as possible.
Some people find happiness in meditation or traveling, some in tasting new foods or wines, some in sports or different activities that are called dangerous which bring adrenaline into your blood.
There are 6 main reasons why people go diving:
- Discover and explore. Discovery of new places or creatures makes you feel like a scientist and explorer.
- New types of movement, new biology and physics discoveries, new gear, new people and a lot of new things above and underwater.
- There is less sound around you in the water. You can feel alone with the nature.
- More and more people find scuba diving as a great form of relaxation and meditation. Scuba diving has a lot more in common with yoga and meditation than you might think. It's is much easier to relax when all you can hear is bubbles.

- The last but not least are new people. If you aren’t involved in some sort of activity or community, you may feel that finding new friends is quite hard. However, diving helps to connect people.
