How not to drown?
Today we will talk about the security rules forwater. And the advice of an experienced instructor will tell you how not to drown. Let's look at all the stages of preparation so that you can swim perfectly in any pond, or, more precisely, stay on the water, because we will learn not to swim, but not to sink, which is much more important. Well, let's start with psychological moments.
How not to drown in water
Psychological preparation is the very first,What you need to do immediately before diving. A good instructor will necessarily explain to you that any naked person (of course, with a swimsuit included) can not drown in principle. A person is lighter than water, especially at the time of inspiration, which is logical - after all, during the inspiration time, air enters the lungs. However, most of it is hard to believe. And here it is necessary to proceed directly to practice. But it's still early in the water. First you need to learn to hold your breath for about 30 seconds on a deep breath - of course, on land. If it is difficult, then for the first time there is enough ten-second breath delay. Happened? Now we start the exercise with the speaking name "float" - it will be our first water "baptism".
How not to drown - "float"
In order to be not very scary, doit is where it is shallow, you can even in the pool, where the depth is approximately to the waist. We will also need an assistant. Now take a deep breath and sit down until it stops, then grasp the knees with your hands, pressing against them with your chest. Now the helper should, as they say, "drop" you into the water, where you'll hang out like a float, as long as you have enough breathing. After doing this exercise, most people really start to believe that they are really lighter than water. True, there is one nuance here. This method is more suitable for adults, and with a child this can not be done with everyone, especially if he is shy. In this case, a boy or girl can be seriously frightened, which greatly complicates the process of adaptation on the water - at least, it will stretch it in time.
How not to drown a child
To begin with, we note that the child first needsteach just to drown, so in a similar situation is not scared. What is meant here? The fact is that children are often afraid to drop their heads into the water, because there it is difficult to see. Therefore, buy a child glasses or a mask so that he does not frown in the water. And then in the pool, at the side, put your small one on your scruff of the neck and explain that now you will play drowned people - go to the bottom, and in a literal sense. And there will be no fear of the child: because thanks to a mask or glasses he will see everything under water, and even keep the parent by the neck at the same time. Well, now to the bottom, and, the child is on the breath, and you are on exhalation. Then you need to float, holding on to the wall. Well and then it will be hardly more difficult. It is necessary to ensure that the child himself surfaced on the wall, when the air begins to end. And then he will not keep you, but you will keep it when you dive. And the most important thing here is to release your child in time. And the last stage - for fixing: to dive, just looking at each other. Now your baby will not drown. I learned to dive - think, swam, because he stopped being afraid when there is no bottom under the feet, and this is the most important thing.
The following exercises
Often beginners ask such a question: There is no bottom under your feet, but there was a rim under your hands - how to get rid of him? And it's very simple: for the previous exercises you took 15-20 minutes, which means that you, most likely, are tired - with unaccustomed something. There was a time of rest. And you need to rest right in the water. We lay down at a depth where the water will be around your neck. Hand your hands on the back of the head and lock it in your lock, pull your elbows parallel to your shoulders and back your back. Now, in full breath, lie with your back on the water in such a way that your eyes can not see anything except the ceiling of the pool. Feelings should be as if you were lying down to sleep on the couch. Only the back should be bent back and kept at full breath all the time, then your lungs will not let you drown your head. It would seem that it means - in full breath? Well, we'll hold out for 30 seconds, but what's next? In fact, the secret is simple: you have to do exhale very quickly, and for a few seconds to inhale for 10-15 seconds to avoid straining yourself. Now you even know how not to drown in the ocean or in the sea. By the way, if at this moment you begin to move your feet, then slowly float, which will be noticeable on the ceiling. Only it is necessary to move elongated legs, and, slowly and smoothly.
Rules of behavior on the water
First of all, we note that water is not the mostlikes vanity. Drown, as a rule, only those who begin to make random movements. Still experts do not advise to learn to swim in fins. Of course, you begin to swim in them quickly - for 2-3 minutes, but then from them it is very difficult to wean. Another important point - to stay on the water and learn to swim is best to start in the basin, because nature has enough, so to speak, "aggravating circumstances": then the wave is large, then the bottom is muddy, then the current is strong. In addition, there are no sides, it is difficult to smoothly sink, etc., etc. A suitable option here is: some quiet lake with not cold and clear water, and also a sandy and gentle bottom. Well, I'll give you three rules that you need to respect absolutely everything - even those who can swim well.
- Do not jump into the water in an unfamiliarIt does not matter if you want to do this from the shore or from the boat. The fact is that, unlike the pool, there can be various obstacles in the water in the water, and most importantly, you do not know what's on the bottom, and what's the one thing. I've seen people after getting such injuries. I will tell you - nothing good. Therefore, dive only in those places that you know well, and even with caution.
- It is forbidden to dive in places where networks can stand. You will get on the net - you will not get out, believe me, but because - do not take risks.
- Do not bathe after takingalcohol - even if you only drank a can of beer. Some may object: yes, I do not get drunk from three. Perhaps you do not get drunk, but the coordination of movements will somehow be broken and, hardly anyone will deny it, a drunk person will not be able to assess the situation as the sober one will. That is why - no experiments after alcohol, and no heroes, by the way, absolutely unnecessary and meaningless, since nobody will appreciate it anyway, no matter what they say to you. For your own safety. These rules are universal and compulsory for any water bodies.
