Swimming can help your work life balance

Striking that perfect balance between career and family has always been a challenge for ladies. Our schedules are getting busier than ever before, which often causes our work or our personal lives to suffer. Work-life balance involves juggling workplace stress with the daily pressures of family & friends. The search for work-life balance is a process in which people seek to change things in accordance with their own priorities, and this can be triggered by factors such as: age, changes in working conditions, health and family circumstances. Beware heavy workloads, family stressors, decreased free time and unhealthy personal habits really are dangerous for our health.

From Class Member To Teacher

Many congratulations to Debbie Sheridan who joined the Dolphin Ladies to improve her swimming and now joins the team of volunteer teachers, here’s her story…. Debbie’s sons are keen swimmers and she found herself spending more time poolside watching them improve and become competent young swimmers. She says, ‘They inspired me to stop watching and get swimming and to get swimming properly!’ Like many of us Debbie had lessons as a child and could manage breaststroke with her head up but, like many of us, she found front crawl a challenge… In September 2016 Debbie signed up with the Dolphin Ladies and waited nervously in the changing room gearing herself up for her first lesson. In her own words, she says ‘I really enjoyed the atmosphere,...
