Back to School: How to Enjoy a Kid-Free Pool

School is back in session in most parts of the country, but there’s still plenty of warm pool weather to be had. With the kids out of the house during the week, it leaves you with the pool all to yourself. Here are some ways to make the most of it:

Peaceful Pool-side Relaxation

You’re probably used to the kids’ rambunctious play time and splashing around the pool. But with the kids back in school, you can enjoy the peace and quiet of your beautiful, serene pool. This is a great opportunity to take time to yourself and practice self care. You can use your pool time to relax, meditate, read a book, take a nap or event just bask in the sun. Having this time to relax can help reduce stress, improve sleep and benefits overall health and well-being.

Get Fit with Pool Work Outs

Now that you have the pool to yourself, you can use it for exercise. Working out in the pool is so much more fun than the gym–you get to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine! Swimming is a great work out–it tones your entire body and is a great cardiovascular exercise. In addition to swimming laps, you can also do water aerobics, water jogging or pool sports like pool volleyball or basketball.

Grown-Up Time

When you have kids, it can be challenging to find time to enjoy other adults. So back-to-school time is a great opportunity to invite your friends over for some adult pool time. You can even host a get-together or party. Even adults love a good pool party!

Get Work Done and Have Some Fun

If you work during the week while the kids are in school, you can still enjoy a kid-free pool if you have the ability to work remotely from your home. Or, you can enjoy your pool after work. The pool is a great place to get work done in a beautiful and tranquil environment. Just do your work by the pool! It will seem so much more enjoyable.
