As a rule, twenty minutes is long enough for anyone to remain in the water. In tropical climates this may be safely exceeded.
After drying with a rough towel, you should have a pleasing glow}7 of the skin, and feeling of exhilaration.
If you are blue, cold and numb, and do not quickly get warm, bath ing is unsafe and harmful for you, or you have stayed in too long.
Opeorsons subject to palpitation, giddiness, or cramp should not bathe without medical consent.
If you fall into deep water, and cannot swim, keep your hands down, and you will rise toothe surface. By paddling you raise your head, and by the move ment of walking upstairs your shoulders will rise above water.
