4 Reasons to Partake in

Fishing Nicholas County WV

Did you know that more than 87 million U.S. adults participate in recreational boating, using boats for activities like fishing, water skiing, and/or travel? Well, fishing is one of the best of those activities. Here are just some of the many reasons why you should partake in fishing Nicholas County WV.

Reduces stress

One of the best things about fishing is that it reduces stress. Nearly 40% of adults can't sleep at night due to stress, and just being near water actually lowers anxiety and instills a sense of calm. Fishing even has therapeutic benefits that can be used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other illnesses. Imagine how relaxed you would feel after a family fishing trip to Nicholas County WV.

Reduces high blood pressure

Another great benefit of fishing is that it helps reduce high blood pressure. Spending time in nature can relieve hypertension which otherwise causes serious health problems like heart attack and stroke. You don't even have to spend eight hours on the water to see this advantage. It only takes about 30 minutes per week to improve blood pressure and overall health.

Burns calories

More than 80% of Americans fail to get the proper exercise every week. Fishing can help you get your exercise in and prevent issues like obesity, cardiovascular problems, and even depression. In fact, active fishing can help you burn 200 calories per hour and the results can be significant.

Boosts vitamin D

Being out in nature while you're fishing exposes you to the sun, which helps boost your levels of Vitamin D. Our bodies synthesize Vitamin D and it helps boost the immune system. Vitamin D isn't the only way the sun helps boost the immune system either. Exposure to some of the wavelengths in sunlight causes some of the body's infection-fighting cells to begin moving more rapidly.
