Health And Wellness Ideas For Your Spa Or Pool

We’re in the midst of a health and wellness revolution here in the U.S. Yoga, meditation, and exercise are all becoming front and center in today’s society, especially as the world becomes more complex, stressful, and time-consuming. While many people subscribe to these forms of wellness, significantly fewer people use water as a way to improve their health and wellness regimen. Here are a few ways you can incorporate your spa or pool into your health:

Resistance Training

Have you ever been at the gym and seen people curling with resistance bands, or maybe doing push-ups with a band wrapped around their back? Well, you can do that in your pool or spa too, and there are a few benefits that you can reap from it. For one, being in the water will be much easier on your joints and will make your workout more productive in the long run. You can hook a band to your spa or pool and do a number of full-body exercises in the water. The resistance of the water will increase the calories you burn, while also being low-impact compared to a gym floor. Getting pool weights may also be a good investment to help get your summer bod.

Pool Meditation

By now, we’re sure you’ve heard of the wonders of meditation, and how it can make you more empathetic, reduce your stress, and promote creativity and imagination. While these are all definitely true, you can take your meditation to the next level by having your next meditation session in your pool or spa. Water meditation enhances your meditation by giving you a feeling of weightlessness and connectedness to your environment. One of the keys to meditation is being conscious but free in your mind, and that is much easier to do when you’re wading in your pool and experiencing its ebb and flow.

Hanging Out with Friends

Studies show that people are becoming more and more lonely, with 30 percent of millennials reporting that they feel lonely on a regular basis. Loneliness can contribute to a wide range of health issues, from increased stress to lack of quality sleep and diminished healthcare. Having a pool or spa gives an opportunity to hang out with people that you care for and love, which can be just as good for your health as medication in some cases. So next time you plan a big gathering, think of it as a dose of social interaction that your doctor would very much approve of!
