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.

I will always stand for America

The united states of America is my home, it is where I have my citizenship in the State of Oregon. I left the unites states lower case because that is how it used to be before the federal government became more important than the states that formed it.  There are many reasons to want to leave America, yet the reasons not to are stronger. This is my country too, along with every other citizen. The difference between me and many other citizens is I love the good part about America, the essence of what it is.  Many citizens hate America and are working very hard to change it into something else; what they don’t realize is America is special because of those things they are trying to destroy.  Regardless of the haters, many people like myself still love this country, for what it is at its heart. We don’t want to change it into something that has proven to not work, we want to appreciate and enjoy it for what it is.  With all the wokeness, I’ve struggled to love America, as my perception of

The Information Machine vs. the Creative Thinker

The AI-curated online world has created a new breed, yet some hold on to their creative uniqueness despite the pervasive trend. The stormtrooper gazes at the flower wondering with awe at the natural creativity found within it. The internet is conditioning human thought and behavior and creating information machines among us. These are humans who have given over to the influences of the hive mind.  The hive mind is the personification of the internet and the big data brain behind its user-friendly interfaces. The hive mind is the holistic sum of the digital age and the internet of things (IoT). On the other side of the human spectrum is the Luddite creative thinker who is detached from the influences of the hive mind, even though part of it in some measure.  The most important aspect of the creative thinker is they are not led by the influences of the hive mind, at least not overtly and consciously.  The information machine-human is keen to know the secrets of the hive mind; they obsess
