Wondering which sporting activity to take up for the summer? Head to the local pool! According to a new survey, swimmers make the best lovers and they are also the happiest personality types.
A new study by the British Heart Foundation, conducted by Mindlab, surveyed 2000 people and looked at the sport we chose and what it revealed about our personalities – including how charitable we are and who we are likely to vote for in the General Election. So next time sport features in someone’s dating profile, it might be wise to pay close attention!

Dr David Lewis, Neuropsychologist and founder of Mindlab, says: “It has long been known that exercise is not only good for your body, but also your mind. The results from this study show that no matter what kind of person you are, there is a sport for everyone.” And a sporting type!
