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.

Making Substack the Center of a Writing System

Focusing Distractions with Complexity With all of the options writers and content creators have now, finding the right one for each system sometimes takes experimentation. Flops and failures often come with such brimming efforts of zeal, yet the glimmer of hope remains in pictures of automated simplicity. In the beginning, things were simple; then came the expansion, the maintenance, building, creating, researching, and other such effort and time into what can only be called a writing system. Organizing this complex miasma of disparate platforms, the writer (insert content creator as needed) has become a blogger, marketer, promotor, maintenance tech, and organizing master. The actual writing is pushed to the side. Finding Balance Each writer organizes their system differently according to their needs and abilities. I’ve always admired someone who focuses on one platform and doesn’t get stretched too thin. We can get distracted by constantly expanding and trying new things. What’s neede

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

Why I Stopped Listening to Mainstream Worldly Music

Being the son of two musicians, music plays an important role in my life. I became a musician as well, although not to the level they were. Parents would play on the weekends at evening hotspots in Bend, OR in the early and mid-80s. They would play cover songs from the 70s and 80s, maybe an original here and there. They went on to have respectable careers in music until this day. Here is my mom’s music website: Maxie Kinney Music The Music Journey of a Country Gal from Oregon I started playing the guitar around 21 years old. I played the keyboard and piano when I was younger. Here is my music website in progress: Robbie Newport Music Original Christian Folk Music Storytime I remember a time when I was around 11 years old in a music shop (in the late 80s and early 90s there were mostly cassette tapes for sale) and I had the choice between Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) or New Kids on the Block — I chose BTO and have always been proud of that decision. I have good taste for genuine music
