This is the thought that struck me. Why do we love water procedures and sea recreation so much? Maybe this is in our subconscious mind? Because there is always food near the water. Our ancestors killed all their time in search of food, and only on the banks of warm rivers and seas was a relative paradise - underfoot in shallow water - mussels, delicious aquatic plants: in 5 minutes a daily ration is provided - the rest of the time you can dream, start raising children, to be curious: what will happen if you pick through the anthill with a stick. Just. The story is driven by dreamers-idlers, whose brains are not busy with worries about food. And protection from predators is near - water (the main enemy of primates - the leopard does not like water, and crocodiles are much less common, but they are cold-blooded - one lunch is enough for a week). Why do we (at me, at least) have nostrils directed downward, because it is inconvenient - snot flows and in general ... dust from below flies into the air intakes - it is more logical to make them on the sides, like ears and cover them with hair - for filtering, and stereo smell - knowing where the smell comes from is a useful option (it would be). And because it is more convenient to swim, dive - the water does not flow. Yes, and we lost something very quickly, like hippos (after all, it gets wet, interferes with swimming), but chimpanzees are another branch of evolution - and the nostrils are directed forward, and there is wool. And also: why is seafood so useful and so do the inhabitants of the steppes suffer from iodine deficiency? And newborns have a swimming instinct - why? This means that our ancestors led a semi-aquatic lifestyle ... Maybe we will return to our native element?
In warm water, we feel better because it acts on us like a massage. Thanks to the relaxing effect that a hot bath gives, headaches, cramps and tensions disappear.
By the way, cold baths are good too.
