Early mornings are arguably one of the best ways to enjoy a swim in your backyard swimming pool. Whether you have a lap pool or a plunge pool, a regular swim routine is a great way to start the day, no matter the size of your pool.
Swimming is not only good for the body but good for the mind as well. It is one of the most effective ways to get fit, to instil self-discipline, and to motivate yourself throughout the day.
Here is why a morning swim is beneficial to your health:
It is refreshing
One of the great things about a morning swim is that it feels refreshing. The water is often cooler during the mornings and is sure to wake you up. Even if you feel groggy and heavy with sleep, the cool, fresh water will invigorate you instantly. It is especially uplifting during hot days and sets the mood for the rest of the day.
A morning swim is just what you need to feel more energised as you go about your day. A regular morning routine improves concentration and focus; helping you become more efficient while you work.
You burn calories throughout the day
A morning swim jump-starts your metabolism, which helps you burn more calories throughout the day.
On top of this, most people burn more calories during morning workouts because they still have the energy for it. We all know how difficult it can be to stay motivated to swim after spending a long day at work.
You enjoy a softer, healthier sun
A morning swim also means that you will get to enjoy a softer, healthier sun. Ample sun exposure is actually good for you — it boosts your metabolism and helps your skin produce more vitamin D.
Morning sunshine has less UV radiation, making it a much safer for your skin. You will get a nice tan too while you are at it.
A great time to enjoy your swimming pool is during the early mornings. Take advantage of its benefits and start today.
