swimming pool lifestyle benefits

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basic lifestyle benefits that many people are looking for when they install a swimming pool on their property. From exercise and outdoor time to entertainment themes and more, there are numerous lifestyle-related reasons why a swimming pool might be an ideal addition to your home.

At Dolphin Pools & Spas, we’re proud to offer a wide range of swimming pool design, construction and more to clients around Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah. Today’s part two of our series will look at some other key lifestyle benefits of owning a swimming pool.

Stress Relief and Relaxation

For many people, one of the largest lifestyle benefits of owning a swimming pool is the ability to easily take some time out of their day and relax. Taking a dip in your backyard pool provides an opportunity for stress relief, relaxation and even meditation.

The combination of fresh air, exercise and quiet can be the perfect opportunity to let go of the stress of everyday life while still enjoying your own private retreat. Many people are using swimming pools as a way to relax and wind down at the end of a long day.

Sleep Improvements

Particularly for those who utilize the pool often for things like swimming laps, the pool can provide a great opportunity for improved sleep. Exercise and physical activity can help increase your serotonin levels, which in turn helps to reduce anxiety and improve your overall quality of sleep.

Additionally, swimming is a low-impact form of exercise, so it won’t cause you any undue stress or strain on your body that may keep you from getting a good night’s sleep.

Aesthetics and Visual Appeal

Another major lifestyle benefit of owning a pool is the improved aesthetics it can bring to your property. Swimming pools are visually appealing and offer an easy way to add value and beauty to any home. With all the different features, options and designs available today, there’s sure to be something that fits into your existing landscape design.

Whether you’re looking for a modern update or something more traditional, you can be sure that a swimming pool will add to the visual appeal of your property.

Social Benefits

Having a backyard pool also offers social benefits as well. A swimming pool is an ideal spot for entertaining guests, hosting barbecues and gatherings, or simply just spending time together with family and friends. From parties to family movie nights, having a pool provides an excuse to get together and make some great memories.

Additionally, when the weather is warm you can also invite friends from further away for a quick dip in your pool. This makes it easier than ever to maintain friendships even if distance separates you and your friends.
