Backyard pool benefits are unmatched.

You may be thinking about putting in a backyard swimming pool, but not sure if it is worth the maintenance costs.  At Goodall Pools & Spas, we will point out some benefits and help you decide if owning a backyard swimming pool is a good fit for you.

Swimming in a Backyard Pool Is a Great Way to Get Exercise

Having the convenience of a swimming pool right in your own backyard is the motivation to get the exercise you need.  Just dive or jump into the pool and swim a few laps.  Swimming puts one-fourth of the strain on your body when compared to walking or jogging.  If anyone in the family has back problems, some orthopedists recommend walking in water as a low-impact way to strengthen bones and muscles.

Swimming Relieves Stress and Is Good for Your Mental Health

Whether you swim laps, float in the water, or relax on a pool raft, your tension and stress will be reduced.  You will be relaxed and better able to face the problems that caused the stress.  Swimming stimulates the area of your brain that releases serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps relieve depression and anxiety.  Relaxing by the pool in a deck chair is also a stress reliever.

Your Backyard Swimming Pool Is a Gathering Place for Your Family

Whether it is for a summer holiday, a casual Sunday BBQ, or a family reunion, your swimming pool will be a great location for events with your family.  Additionally, most young children and teenagers like to swim.  Teenagers particularly gravitate to the home with the pool.  Your home can be that place.  One benefit is that you know where your teenagers are: at your place.

Having a Backyard Pool Inspires You to Go Outside and Get Your Recommended Dose of Vitamin D

Nearly half of all Americans do not get enough vitamin D.  Spending some time in the sun every day or at least every week is the best source of the vitamin.  Spending time outside is especially important for those who do not eat dairy products or fish which are dietary sources of vitamin D.

Entertaining Your Friends Has Benefits

Whether it is a barbecue, cocktail party, or an impromptu get-together, folks love to have a pool nearby.  Whether they swim or not, just having the pool adds an atmosphere to the party that people really enjoy.
