New Year’s Resolutions are notoriously hard to keep. In fact, studies have shown that only 8% of people actually follow through with their goals the entire year, and about 80% of people give up by the start of February.

Given those abysmal statistics, we need all the help we can get. Perhaps surprisingly, a new pool can help you keep some of the most common New Year’s resolutions. Let’s look at how Jackson Pools can help you become better in 2022.

Get in Shape, Take Care of Your Body, or Lose Weight

Swimming is one of the best types of exercise you can do for your body. No matter what your goals are for bettering your physical health, a new pool can help.

Swimming — whether lap swimming, water aerobics, or other submerged activities — does not put a lot of strain on your muscles and joints, but still raises your heart rate, builds muscle, and torches calories. The resistance of the water adds an extra challenge that’s incredibly beneficial for your body. There are lots of different pool workouts that you can follow!

Jackson Pools can install a stylish pool that still has a lap lane built into it. The bonus is that once you make one positive change for your well-being, it acts as a domino effect. Soon, you’ll find yourself wanting to eat healthier foods and get a better night’s rest.

Spend More Time with Friends and Family

Everyone loves to swim, especially in southwest Florida’s gorgeous year-round weather. A backyard pool will bring everyone together and help them enjoy their time more. Even your tweens and teens will want to get in on the fun! Throw a party for your teens and organize competitive pool party games for everyone – including parties. Or host a backyard dinner party for friends and family to enjoy spending time together.

Make Smart Financial Moves

This one might seem counter-intuitive since installing a pool is a significant investment. However, your new pool can add tremendous value to your home, especially in a place like southwest Florida where the weather is warm all year. The National Center for Real Estate Research estimates that adding a swimming pool typically increases your home’s value by 8%. But when you consider the SWFL lifestyle and year-round swimming weather, that is thought to be even higher – especially if other homes in your neighborhood have pools.

Live Life to the Fullest: A Jackson Pool Can Help

If your goal in 2022 is simply to get more out of each day, then a pool can certainly help you achieve that! More activity means you’ll be healthier, happier (exercise boosts endorphins) and have more energy to do the other things you love. All of the other reasons above also have the potential to improve your overall quality of life.

To meet this goal, you have to enjoy your environment. Not only is a pool tons of fun, especially in southwest Florida, but it’s also beautiful to look at and a source of pride for your home.
