At New Year’s, making a list of resolutions is easy—it’s sticking to them that can be hard! But did you know that a swimsuit, backyard pool and a few minutes every day can help you achieve almost every resolution on your list? Take a look at today’s blog to see how!
For fitness goals…
There’s no discounting the benefits of a gym membership when it comes to getting fit—but if you crave an environment that’s a little less uniform, try turning your backyard pool into your workout center! It’s a “gym” of your own that’s open on your schedule. You can start with simple but beneficial aerobic moves by swimming laps around the pool or simply kicking off from the sides. You can even mix up your workout to make it more strenuous by walking through the pool with weights or perfecting a routine of your own. Your doctor can help you develop a workout that works for you—just add water and you’re good to go!
By utilizing your swimming pool to tackle your fitness goals, you can also avoid the dreaded task of getting yourself to the gym. You need only take a few steps out your back door to get to your daily workout routine. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
For more time spent with family…
If your resolution was to spend more time with family, you are not alone! Fortunately, a pool can help you greatly in this regard, too. You don’t need to plan elaborate outings and family activities that put a strain your schedule. Start simple and get to know and enjoy your pool a little more with backyard barbecues, poolside dinners, and impromptu swim sessions.
For a more relaxing life…
Feeling stressed? A common resolution is to cut down on the stressors in our lives in favor of a more relaxed day-to-day routine. You can start your own stress-relieving routine by heading to the pool for a morning swim that lets you feel weightless, or a poolside coffee or catching up of your favorite book. After all, it’s hard to find a more relaxing setting than your favorite pool lounger on a sunny day!
