The makers behind those compact water fountains you can plug in are on to something. The sound of flowing water is one of the most effective stress relievers out there. Because you own a pool, you’ve got relaxation at your fingertips.
Stress can impact our mental and physical health in a number of ways causing headaches, depression, high blood pressure, and stomach aches just to name a few. Yet no matter the toll stress can take on our bodies, we still put ourselves in stressful situations, because let’s face it, sometimes it’s unavoidable. Take advantage of the stress-free zone that is in your backyard.
Forget taking a dip in the pool — yes, even a swim would relax you — because just sitting by the pool for a few minutes at the end of your day and listening to one of your water features or the water slapping the sides of the tile are sure to calm your heart. The bubbling sound of the water jets in your spa or hot tub seem to call your name. Even if it’s raining outside, take a seat under your patio or open a window so you can listen to the rain fall into the pool. The soothing sounds of water are sure to change your mood and reduce your stress. Add color LED lights from your pool to the equation and you are in nirvana.
Find ways to incorporate a few minutes at the pool’s edge during the week, even if it is only five and notice the difference in your mood directly after. Share with us some of your most relaxing pool side experiences.
