With Covid-19 measures being put in place in Europe and the UK in late-March, divers are not only cancelling dive plans, we are also getting used to the idea we may be staying home for a while. PADI organised a series of Facebook Live talks for landlocked divers, looking at how what we’ve learned underwater can help us get through this stressful time.
This talk focuses on deep breathing to regulate our emotions and stay calm. It’s a useful practice for diving, and helps to cope with stress. It is also very helpful when presenting on Facebook Live for the first time, and the page has over a million followers! Throughout the talk, as I’m seeing the number of people watching go up!) I’m reminding myself to slow down and breathe.
