New Year’s resolutions can be very helpful to set. Resolutions are basically goals, after all. And setting goals enables you to think about your future and can help motivate you to plan a path to what you envision your ideal future to be. Setting goals helps give you direction and purpose and also provides additional benefits like increasing self-confidence and decision-making ability. As you think about the goals you’d like to achieve in 2019, these are 10 goals a swimming pool can help you achieve.
1. Manage Your Stress Better
Did you know that according the American Institute on Stress, that by reducing stress, you can also reduce anxiety and depression as well as improve cardiovascular and immune function? Improving your stress level also has a positive impact on weight and sleep and you may even find you function better at work. When you own a pool, it provides a means to get away from your hectic work or home schedule and to enjoy a serene place beside the calming waters of your pool to de-stress.
2. Relax, Breathe and Be Present
A pool provides a very relaxing atmosphere. Swimming can be very relaxing, or just lounging pool-side under the warm sun in the fresh air. Like stress reduction, relaxation and taking time to breathe and be present is an important part of overall health and wellness.
3. Spend More Time with Family
Life can be busy, and it can be difficult to make time for family. And oftentimes, it’s difficult to find activities the whole family can enjoy. A pool is the solution! No matter your family members’ ages, genders or interests, they’ll find something fun today at the pool. Choose from pool games, pool sports, competitions, tanning or evening just relaxing and talking by the pool.
4. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Exercising regularly has many long-term health benefits and can prevent disease. Plus, you’ll feel a whole lot better if you exercise. Swimming is a fantastic form of exercise since it works the entire body. With a pool, you can swim laps, do water aerobics, water jog or play pool sports.
