A New You in the New Year

A New You in the New Year

It’s that time of the year when our personal goals are flooded with resolutions and plans for the New Year, as we are generally greeted with feelings of excitement toward being healthier and feeling renewed in the months ahead. Like many others, you may have picked up a lot of lessons from the past few years, though perhaps different ones than you expected. More than ever, many of us have realized the importance of a strong immune system, as we got a first-hand lesson in understanding that health truly is wealth. 

So as the New Year is upon us, it’s important to note that the phrase we’ve all been guilty of hanging on to, ‘New Year New Me,’ doesn’t have to be cliché. Investing in a pool or hot tub is a wonderful way to have 24/7 access to improving your health and wellness in 2023. If you’re still hesitant to take the plunge, read on to learn more about how custom pool and spa ownership can help you improve your health and wellness in 2023. 

Make the Most of Your Backyard
Take a dip. Literally. Swimming in your pool and soaking in your spa are great activities not only for exercise but also for your mental well-being, which plays a huge role in your body remaining fit. Sitting in a sauna for 15 minutes is also extremely beneficial for ridding your body of any toxins accumulated throughout the day while you’re de-stressing. 

Enjoy the Health Benefits of Swimming 

Stress relief: With the holidays over, you may have returned to the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Getting the kids to school, making it to work on time, and doing youth sports. Don’t be stressed about stress. It’s time to let it float away. Swimming has a well-deserved reputation as a safe and healthy way to relieve stress. Like other forms of aerobic exercise, it has an effect on substances such as serotonin and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP). These chemicals improve mood and reduce stress respectively. What’s even more convenient is enjoying your pool in the comforts of your own backyard.  

Burns calories: Between work, taking care of the kids, and creating a nice holiday experience, you may have gained a few pounds. If you’re struggling with losing them and are ready to make the commitment, swimming is an enjoyable way to do so. Swimming for just one hour at light or moderate speeds can send up to 400 calories packing. 

Enjoy the Health Benefits of a Spa

Detoxification: Modern living exposes us to various toxins daily. This may be from food, water supply, beauty products, or household supplies, just to name a few. Getting in a good soak in your spa will make you sweat. Sweating gets the bad stuff off of your skin and out of your system in general. Using a spa is a relaxing way to flush toxins down the drain. A good sweat in the hot tub raises your temperature, improves your blood flow, and helps purify your body and organs, as well. 

Improved Circulation and Blood Flow: Heat increases the diameter of your blood vessels and increases blood flow, but why is this so important? You may have experienced nagging aches and pains in your muscles. You’re probably familiar with stiff or uncooperative joints.  An improvement in blood flow to those areas will help greatly. Also, flow equals glow. This improved circulation helps to nourish the skin cells, leaving you with renewed skin and overall well-being. It’s great to begin your year by looking and feeling good.
