Swinging on a swing set helps children sleep.

It’s true. Studies have shown that children who swing regularly sleep well (or better anyway) because the spinning motion helps balance neurological activity in the brain. You know those wound up thoughts you have when you’re lying in bed with insomnia, staring at the clock? Well, kids have that stuff too. But they don’t have the logical perceptions to help them lie still. When wiring has gone haywire, neurological focus affects your sleeping patterns. The back and forth motion and spinning motions helps settle immature brains into a restful peace.

Overall, the benefits of swinging are more than just having a good time. Swinging helps the brain balance. It helps it settle. Swinging on a swing set is like meditation or yoga for children. It helps them calm. It helps them soothe. And it aids in balancing the brain’s wiring.

We all know that in most of the Tamil and Gujarati houses, Swings are a part and parcel of their living. Does this have any relation to the fact that most of the top academicians, economists, businessmen, Industrialists, CEOs etc are from these states? Its anybody guess but yes we did come across an article which stated that swinging, for kids upto the age of 8, increases memory and intelligence.

It is not difficult to suspend a swing or have access to one, but be sure yours is suspended properly and checked regularly.

Using a professional installer and checking your suspension and attachments regularly will ensure that your swing is always safe and secure. You can choose from either single point (swivel swings) or dual point swings as per your space requirements

or you can choose a floor swing which need not be hung from the ceiling.
