Learning new hobbies keeps us busy and stimulates the mind. Ice skating in particular offers a unique and enjoyable way to stay physically fit and promotes positive mental well-being. Ice skating can be likened to an art or a dance as it requires your presence, concentration and mindfulness, as well as lots of practice! When ice skating, you are more aware of yourself. Maintaining a rhythm while skating on the ice helps to soothe your mind and silence the noise, leaving you feeling mentally refreshed. Not only will it leave you feeling revived, it will have your heart racing and leave you aching the following day without realising it. Exercise without feeling like exercise? Yes please!
