Diving And Burnout


Burnout has been on the rise in recent years and Bathysmed diving brings solutions in the possibilities of management.

What is Burnout and How Can Diving Help Alleviate Symptoms?

Burnout is a syndrome of professional stress characterized by emotional exhaustion, disillusionment with one’s work, and decreased professional performance. It has become increasingly common in modern societies and can have serious consequences on individuals’ mental and physical health.

Studies have shown that practicing scuba diving can help alleviate symptoms of burnout. A study conducted in 2015 showed that individuals undergoing a one-week diving course had significantly lower levels of perceived stress and better quality of life compared to a control group engaged in multisport activities.

There are several reasons why scuba diving can help alleviate burnout symptoms. Firstly, the peaceful and quiet underwater environment can help relax the body and mind. Additionally, scuba diving can provide a beneficial distraction for individuals with burnout who may be preoccupied with their work. Finally, scuba diving can offer a different sensory stimulation from that of the terrestrial environment, which can help break away from the isolation and monotony that can accompany burnout.

It is important to note that scuba diving may not be advisable depending on the advanced stress level of an individual and the medication they may be taking.

Similarly, if diving to reduce stress interests you, it is strongly recommended to go through Bathysmed-trained instructors who target stress symptoms.

The Bathysmed protocol has been specially designed to address stress-related pathologies. It is also very effective for individuals wanting to dive differently and/or improve their quality of life.
