Everyone knows that swimming benefits the body. But did you know that it also works wonders for the mind? Spending even just a few minutes a day in your pool can make you feel better! Here are 3 reasons why... 1. Endorphins
YAY for endorphins! The happy chemicals that your brain naturally releases when you do things such as exercise. You see, according to Medicine Net, endorphins are similar to "uppers" because they work with the opiate receptors to trick you into thinking your exercise isn’t painful. Endorphins lead to euphoric feelings and they even boost your immune system!
2. Social Perks
If you enjoy swimming with your friends, kids, family - or any/all of the above, then you my lucky friend, are on your way to happiness. You see, researchers claim that spending time with others – especially loved ones – can make you feel happier.
3. No Worries
When you’re soaking in the good 'ol H20, you have the chance to wash away all the worries of work, relationships and bills! Seriously... who has ever dived into a pool thinking "phone bill is due tomorrow... I should really get onto that". Nope. Your pool is your "special place". However, if your pool has turned into less of a happy haven and into a headache, then give one of our friendly experts a call. We will have you drawing smiley faces on random walls in no time! 😊 *Jim's Pool care in no way endorses vandalism, even in instances where vandalism occurs due to pool-induced euphoria.
