I’ve heard many legends about human’s “unfloatability”. They say that being in the water is unnatural for a human being, but I dare to disagree. ANY healthy person can swim, and that’s a proven fact. Are you still afraid of approaching the water? Let me tell you something.
First of all, human body IS able to float. Basically, it is heavier than the water because of the bones and organs. So, what helps us floating? Right you are, the air. It is concentrated primarily in our lungs and intestine, and it means that we won’t drawn until we stopped breathing. So, the first advice is: BREATHE! Try to calm down, don’t make any intrusive moves and breathe softly.
