A few years ago people were laughed at when they told friends or colleagues that they got mental support of any kind. This mindset drastically changed rapidly in society and it is nowadays quite common to hear that people get this kind of support. Mental strength is now associated with will power, calmness and self confidence. Quality-Diving helps you to improve your mental strength with a dedicated mental training service - no matter if you want to reach new limits or just want to relax with a professional dive guide: we gladly assist.

Why mental training?

Every time you try something new it is exciting and you have to focus a lot to do it right. Putting your focus on the task at hand is the key to success in that moment. This is exactly what you do when you dive. As a person new to diving you face a lot of challenges: Your first breath from a regulator, the first descent into the blue, the first big animal you see. These situations are similar to new situations we face in business life every day. Most of the time we take on the adventure without really knowing what is waiting for us. This is where mental training helps you to cope with unexpected turns and twists.

Mental strength - accept upcoming challenges

In times where people communicate with each other within seconds sitting on the other side of the world life in general can become very stressful. The more you try to reach out for success - the harder business life gets. Sometimes people start to feel that they don't have the necessary mental strength anymore to cope with the increasing performance demanded by the environment they are in. Getting away from the current business environment and doing something completely different most of the times helps. This is where diving comes into play. As a business person you are used to focus on something and do it right. The only problem is: you have no idea what you have to do to survive in an environment such as underwater. The mental challenge lies right where people have to "cross" a mental barrier to feel comfortable again.

Once this mental barrier is crossed people start feeling comfortable rapidly when diving. The changes of peoples mindsets who are afraid of swimming in the open ocean and suddenly are diving - incredible. A small step of diving training can help you realise that in the end everything comes down to one essential point - no matter if it is daily business life or swimming in the sea: the point of view and your personal judgement. How do you approach a challenge mentally and how do you master it? In the very moment you figure this out some new perspectives will certainly come up.

Group dynamics and teambuilding in diving

As explained in our mental training service we provide such training combined with diving for individuals or groups. The effect these Quality-Diving teambuilding events have on interpersonal behaviour is enormous. Back in business life teams understand to not only hear what people say but also understand a wide variety of other signs and gestures. Not because the behaviour changes drastically but because they are aware that there is more in communication than the spoken word.

RELAX and take on the mental challenge

If you already do diving and you think there are no more challenges waiting for you - mentally or physically - let us assure you: Quality-Diving has a wide range of challenging trainings or divespots to offer. Of course you are also more than welcome to contact us if you feel like getting out of the stressful business life for a relaxing Quality-Diving trip. Our freelance dive guiding specialists are more than happy to assist you.
