The Art of Slowing Down - SDI | TDI | ERDI

It's a great time of the year to consider the 'art of slowing down.'

How do you slow down to enjoy the sport of diving?

#scuba #diving #scubadiving #SDI #TDI #TDISDI

Maybe it’s excitement, maybe it’s a lack of experience, maybe it’s nervousness. You likely started this sport to relax or see the underwater world, but you won’t be able to benefit from either if you don’t take the time to slow down. Slow down, relax and enjoy your surroundings.
