It’s that time of the year when our personal goals are flooded with resolutions and plans for the New Year. We are generally greeted with feelings of excitement toward being healthier and feeling renewed throughout the year ahead. And what better way to improve your health and wellness than by incorporating swimming into your daily routine? 

A recent article written for the TED organization went into great detail about the overwhelmingly positive benefits of swimming and your overall health and cognitive function. We recommend taking the time to read the insightful article to get a better understanding of the science behind hows and whys swimming produces such positive effects on the body as they are in abundance. 

Your health truly is wealth, and it’s essential to invest in ways to keep your mental and physical health a top priority. So as the New Year is upon us, it’s important to note that the phrase we’ve all been guilty of hanging on to, ‘New Year New Me,’ doesn’t have to be cliché. 

Pool ownership is a great way to have 24/7 access to bettering your health and wellness. If you’re still hesitant about taking the plunge, read on to see some fresh ideas to achieve health and wellness in 2023. 

Enjoy the Health Benefits of Swimming 

Stress relief: With the holidays over, you may have returned to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Getting the kids to school, making it to work on time, and youth sports. Don’t be stressed about stress. It’s time to let it float away. Swimming has a well-deserved reputation as a safe and healthy way to relieve stress. Like other forms of aerobic exercise, it has an effect on substances such as serotonin and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP). These chemicals improve mood and reduce stress respectively. What’s even more convenient is enjoying your pool in the comforts of your own backyard.  

Burns calories: Between work, taking care of the kids, and creating a nice holiday experience, you may have gained a few pounds. If you’re struggling with losing them and are ready to make the commitment, swimming is an enjoyable way to do so. Swimming for just one hour at light or moderate speeds can send up to 400 calories packing. 

Overall calm & relaxation: Swimming helps your general well-being. If you can spend about 30 minutes in the pool two to three times a week, and follow a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle, you’re on the right track. Swimming is excellent for staying trim and healthy while building a positive mental outlook. Experts suggest swimming since it is known to regularly lower stress levels, help ease symptoms of anxiety and depression, and even improve sleep patterns. You don’t have to be an Olympic swimmer to reap the many benefits swimming may offer. Simply put, incorporating swimming into your daily wellness plan can improve all the above if you stick to a routine.
