'A feeling of absence of gravity is typical for diving,' explains Lars Bruhnke, experienced diver who has now assumed the role of a diving instructor. 'That feeling of weightlessness also extends to the mind: stress and worries are left behind at the water's surface and divers find themselves in a state of equilibrium.'
