“Fear of water how to overcome it in 10 steps? I will post the link down in the
description Step number 2: Practice looking up to the ceiling while your
ears are in the water Hold the edge of the pool with one hand slowly lower your
head into the water and keep it back so the water should get in your ears get
used to this feeling and repeat it a couple of times Step number 3: Raise your other arm up to the water level do it slowly and
be relaxed Step number 4: Bring one leg up and try to stay balanced Step
number 5: Bring the other leg up as well keep your legs away from each other
keep your tummy up in the same time if you find this step challenging then ask
a friend to hold your head or to support your upper body Step

your tummy up keep your ears in the water and look up 90 degrees all the
time Step number 7: stop holding the edge of the pool and do a starfish float

float move your legs together and move your arms close to your body this is
called a pencil float step number 9: let’s do a pencil float version two if

together and move your arms behind your head this is the proper pencil float
very important whatever you’re doing on your back you have to stay calm and
relaxed all the time keep your head back keep your tummy up and only do slow
movements step number ten now stand up from the floating position slowly bend
your knees and let them sink down now put your feet down and stand up step
