Pools practically sell themselves because who doesn’t want to come to an awesome pool party? However, it might be difficult to justify having a pool installed if the main selling point is just that it’s fun. The thing is, pools are way more than just fun. They come with several unexpected benefits that may actually shape your life in a surprising way and be a major boon to your overall health.
Swimming is an excellent low-impact exercise. It’s useful if you want to build lean muscle, but also if you just want to get some exercise while having fun. It’s difficult to make time for exercise if you don’t enjoy it or you need to go to the gym, but a pool in the backyard is a great excuse to get outside in the sunshine and improve your physical health.
Being outside is good for your mental health. Sunshine exposure boosts serotonin levels, making you happier. Being around nature relieves stress and calms the mind. Even physical exercise is known to improve mental health because a healthy body propagates a healthy mind. Having a swimming pool will bring you outside more often (don’t forget sunscreen!) to enjoy the sunshine and engage in physical fitness, greatly improving your mental health.
If you’re someone who loves to host your friends and family, you won’t even have to invite them if you have a swimming pool. People want to be in and around bodies of water, and swimming pools are a great gathering place for a summer barbecue. If you have kids, their friends will always want to come to your home to swim, and it is a good motivator to get them off of screen time and out in the sunshine.
