In addition to the directly physical benefits of owning your own backyard swimming pool that you may understandably prefer to avoid, we have some emotional and comfort-related thoughts for you to consider, too. After all, asceticism may increase in popularity, someday even eclipsing the current trend toward hedonism. Pleasure is overrated, anyway. If you agree, then a pool is definitely not for you.
You Thrive on Constant High Stress
Despite the long-term physical effects of stress on your body and quality of life, you may actually prefer to remain at a high-alert, anxious mental and emotional state. Why risk having that interrupted with the therapeutic effects of a swimming pool? From the calming effects of simply looking at the water to the weightless feeling it can offer, a swimming pool is definitely not a good fit for those who don’t wish to break their addiction to stress. A whopping 74% of those surveyed reported that swimming helps release tension, and nearly as many (70%) said it contributes to a sense of refreshment. Of course, you could be in the minority, but it’s definitely not worth the risk, if you prefer a sense of stress.
You Crave the Risks of Heat Stroke
During the hot summer months an active lifestyle often comes with risks, such as heat stroke. However, by jumping in the pool, you would avoid the potential for over-heating, but with greater positive health impact than staying indoors and feeding your screen addiction. If you’d prefer heat stroke or screens (which are likely to increase your sense of stress, by the way), then don’t get a pool. Just don’t.
You’d Rather Worry About Your Kids
For any parent, safety is a major source of anxiety. Anxiety adds to stress. If you’re all about stress, then the last thing you’ll want to do is keep your kids safe. However, a comfortable environment for learning how to swim will, in all likelihood, contribute to their confidence in learning to swim. Whether you teach them water safety skills yourself or hire a private swim instructor, having your own pool will definitely make it easier to promote the life skill of swimming. But if you’d rather worry, you won’t want to offer them this option.
You Want To Avoid Socializing
You’d be more likely to focus on your stressors if you just stayed away from the people in your life. And if you don’t even have to travel in order to spend time with them, you might have more time to socialize than you otherwise would. Another proven method of decreasing stress, no stress addict will want to do anything to promote easy socializing. From regular, casual get-togethers to all-out pool parties, a backyard swimming pool makes spending time with family and friends in a relaxed environment almost unavoidable.
