Another great photograph from China about people swimming during the winter months for the good of their health. The other picture I blogged on the same subject earlier this month can be seen here.

The winter swimming is especially popular amongst the elderly and retired as it's believed to improve circulation and benefit health, and also said to increase the level of mental awareness, release stress, remove aches and pains, increase vitality and keep skin looking younger - and of course, an overall feeling of well-being.
