A slow, relaxed full belly breath, lowering your heart rate as much as you can before you start. Mastering the art of holding your breath and swimming like a mermaid takes practice.

There are lots of different swimming skills that you can practise like, monofin face down, face up and side swim, the somersault and the tornado.

Mermaid Tips and Tricks
Mermaid Tips and Tricks As a mermaid, it’s important to keep your tail squeaky clean. After all, you don’t want to be swimming around with a dirty tail, do you? So, grab your mermaid scrub brush and some underwater soap and get ready for a sudsy adventure. Just be sure to rinse off all the soap thoroughly, you don’t want any residue attracting unwanted attention from the fish and spoiling the reef.
It’s also important to protect your scales from chlorine. We all know that mermaids love a good dip in the pool, but chlorine can be a real pain for our delicate scales. The key here is to coat your scales with a layer of coconut oil or a special mermaid-friendly lotion before swimming. This will create a barrier and prevent the chlorine from stripping away your beautiful shine. Plus, you’ll smell like a tropical paradise!
Mermaid photoshoots, every mermaid’s dream. To prepare for these occasions, make sure you have your best seashell bra and dazzling tiara ready. Practice your best underwater poses and perfect that enigmatic mermaid gaze. It’s a skill to stay not so buoyant, hold your body in the water and smile like you can see underwater.
Mermaid safety is paramount. Always swim with a buddy – two mermaids are always better than one; wear sunscreen and don’t forget to stretch before any intense swimming sessions – you don’t want any pulled fins or scales. Remember, being a mermaid is all about fun and adventure. Always remember to never touch anything in the underwater world and leave it as beautiful as you found it. It can hurt us as much as we can hurt it and we want to saviour it for the future mermaids.
So embrace your inner mermaid magic! May your underwater adventures be as endless as the depths of the sea. Keep swimming and shimmering, my mermaid companions, until next time!
