With the busy days of summer behind us and the bustling holiday season only a month or two ahead, September is a good time to pause and focus on our health. Being dedicated to a healthy diet is important, but exercising and taking time to relax and unwind in an above ground pool, inground pool or hot tub is just as critical for our physical and emotional well-being.
Invigorate Your Life with Water-Based Exercises
Swimming may be the fourth most popular sports activity in our country, but any water-based exercise delivers a wallop of health benefits.
Aerobic activity in an above ground or inground pool boosts our immune system and can drastically improve the health of those with diabetes and heart disease. But aquatic exercise can specifically help in a number of ways land-based exercises can’t:
- It’s easier on the joints, and studies have shown health improvements in those with arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Aquatic exercise improves mental health and is a well-known mood booster
- Exercising in an above ground or inground pool decreases disability and improves the quality of life for all people, especially older individuals and those with mental and physical disabilities
If you have a hard time sticking with an exercise routine, water-based exercises in an above ground or inground pool are for you as people have reported preferring water-based exercises to those on land. Exercising in water also allows you to work out longer without extra effort and without additional joint or muscular pain.
Ease Your Mind and Body in Warm Water
A lot of us associate “hot tubs” with “luxury”, but the truth is that soaking in a hot tub is incredibly beneficial to our health and should be something we all do on a regular basis. Anyone who has enjoyed a relaxing soak in a hot tub can attest to its stress-busting capabilities, but there are many other reasons why we should all be lounging in a hot tub at the end of the day:
- Improves sleep
- Reduces arthritic and chronic pain
- Reduces blood sugar and blood pressure
- Decreases tension headaches and migraines
Soaking in a hot tub is also a great follow up to a workout in your pool. The warm waters and the targeted jets in a tub expedite muscular recovery so your muscles can repair and build faster. This means a decreased recovery time after working out and potentially faster visible results.
