7 Good Reasons to Go Swimming More Often



Getting in the water and swimming is something most people would like to do more often, yet with all the distractions of modern life, this enjoyable activity is usually placed on the back burner. In an effort to help get swimmers motivated, let's examine 7 good reasons to go swimming more often.

1. Get Away from Online Technology:

Although they do have waterproof smartphones and digital devices, swimming is generally a time people spend away from online technology. This is a great reason to take a dip, as it gives people a needed reprieve from their continuous smartphone monitoring and use – don't worry, the smartphone can be close-by.

2. Forming a Healthy Habit:

By all standards, swimming is a healthy habit to start, as it works to build muscle, increase stamina, and bring weight loss. An article on Everyday Health called: "The Health Benefits of Swimming", validates this by saying:


"Swimming works your whole body, improving cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, endurance, posture, and flexibility all at the same time. Your cardiovascular system in particular benefits because swimming improves your body's oxygen without overworking your heart."


This is an excellent reason to swim more often, especially, when family or friends start to question swimmers about the amount of time they spend in the pool. With swimming being this good for our health, why not swim more often and for longer periods of time? In the process, swimmers will form a healthy habit as well.

3. Meditation and Stress Relief

There's something refreshing and meditative about swimming, which is another good reason to do it more often. Modern life is full of stresses and busyness; finding ways to wind down and relax are important, especially, for adults.

Being submerged in water takes swimmers away from the sights and sounds of their daily lives. The coolness of the water temperature and the quiet sounds of moving water in a pool brings swimmers into a meditative mindset.

4. Make Use of Investment:

Remember, we're looking for reasons (excuses) to go swimming more often, right? Well, how about making use of the swimming pool investment. Even swimmers with an annual pass to the community pool can use this reason to swim more, yet, especially, swimmers with a pool in their backyards.

Swimming pools are excellent investments for many reasons, so why not make use of this investment as much as possible? By swimming every day (or more often), swimmers will be making good use of their investment.

5. Fosters Harmonious Relationships:

By swimming more often, people will find their relationships are more harmonious, at least, in theory. This is because the swimmer is healthier, more relaxed, and is able to get away from relations to go swimming more often.

Basically, going swimming is a good reason to get away from the house and those in it. When the house is in chaos, the swimming pool is a refuge from the storm; by swimming more, people can escape the chaos, thus, foster harmonious relationships easier.

6. Hot Outside:

When temperatures outside reach sweltering levels, like most of the year in Las Vegas, swimmers have a good reason to jump in the pool. Jumping in cool water and taking a swim when it's hot outside is maybe the best reason to swim more often.

7. It's Fun:

When it comes down to it, swimming is simply fun. Having more fun in life isn't a crime, and swimming more often isn't either. Maybe this doesn't mean smiling and laughing fun all the time, yet the activity of swimming is always fun to some degree, which is a good reason to do it more often.

Ultimately, whatever reason (excuse) people can find to go swimming more often is a good one.

HubPages vs. Vocal

Gaining Context I opened my account at Vocal around two years ago when I published my first article. It was a syndicated article from my golf blog, which surprisingly has done better than all other articles since. Around three months ago, I decided to give Vocal a real chance with a renewed effort and by becoming a Vocal Plus member. They enticed me with half off a year’s membership ($50 for a year, usually it is $99 annually or $10/month). Since this renewed effort, I have published nine articles; six were written originally at Vocal (four were for Vocal Challenges), and the other 3 were syndicated from elsewhere. The plan for Vocal was to publish my creative writing there originally, which meant I had to switch from HubPages where these were published originally before. The distracting ads and lackluster RPM helped make this decision, although I’ve been writing on HP for over a decade. After three months of “working” Vocal, I’ve realized it isn’t worth paying the $10/month. I’ll expl

Views are Like Customers to Writers

Writing online entails considering how many impressions, views, visitors/reads, comments, shares, and reactions each article gets. These digital assets symbolize the money made from each article. How many views did that article get — that poem, story, blog post, picture, art piece? The number will determine how much money the article made. While most writers appreciate even one single read, this doesn’t pay much. On the high end, this might bring .02 cents. Usually, around half a cent, or $5 RMP. Different Writing Platforms and Efforts At Medium views don’t turn into a specific amount of money, rather they are merely an indication of possible money — reads are more important at Medium, as they correlate closely with any money made. Each read at Medium this month made me around that .02 cent mark! The reads at Medium might not be from members, so may not make us money. Still, on average, both views and reads equal a certain estimated amount for each Medium writer. At Vocal, they make it

5 Topics Hotels Can Consistently Blog About

Starting a blog to complement a website and other digital marketing efforts is a great idea for hotels, yet what should their blogs be about? Consistently posting blogs about interesting topics sometimes isn't that easy. In an effort to help, let's discuss 5 topics hotels can consistently blog about to gain traction online. 1. Local Attractions and Destinations: cc from pxhere.com Local SEO is vitally important to gain attention from search engines, in order to stand out to prospective guests interested in staying in the hotel's local area. Blogging about local attractions gives hotels a large topic to draw upon when brainstorming blog ideas. Even if the hotel is in a relatively isolated location or smaller town, there's always something to write about when it comes to local attractions or destinations. Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, concert halls, sports stadiums, race tracks, wilderness attractions, parks, historical sites, and more can be highlighted in a ho

Oregon mother jailed for treating daughter’s cancer with homeopathic remedies

In a highly controversial case, an Oregon mother was sentenced to 90 days of jail and 3 years of probation for essentially making health decisions for her now 17-year-old daughter that the state didn’t like. The details are found in an Oregon Live article by Noelle Crombie on Feb. 27. The article explains that the mother, Christina Gale Dixon, 39, decided to treat her daughter with CBD and other homeopathic remedies instead of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery (conventional treatments for cancer). This wasn’t always the case, as her daughter, Kylee Dixon, was first diagnosed with liver cancer in 2018 and underwent three rounds of chemotherapy. The article explains that the Oregon Department of Human Services got involved in late 2018 when the mother wasn’t allowing her daughter to be treated according to the allelopathic physicians. The state then took custody of her daughter, yet allowed her to live with her mother until Christina fled with her daughter to Las Vegas to avoid a sch
