Dive into Wellness – Healthy Pool Living Tips from Apple Pools

At Apple Pools, we’re about more than just sparkling clean water and pristine pool surfaces. We believe your pool should be an oasis of well-being, a place to connect with family and friends, and a source of healthy fun. That’s why we’re sharing some healthy pool living tips and practices that enhance both your enjoyment and your overall wellness.

Sun Smart Swimming

  • Seek shade: The Australian sun is powerful, so embrace shade structures like umbrellas or gazebos. Schedule swims for early mornings or late afternoons when UV rays are less intense.
  • Sunscreen is essential: Apply SPF 30+ sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours, especially after swimming. Don’t forget your ears, lips, and the tops of your feet!
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: Losing fluids during swimming is easy. Keep a reusable water bottle handy and sip frequently to avoid dehydration, which can lead to headaches, fatigue, and muscle cramps.

Exercise & Relaxation

  • Water workouts: Swimming is a fantastic low-impact exercise that engages your entire body. Create personalised workout routines incorporating laps, water aerobics, or aqua jogging.
  • Mindfulness by the pool: The gentle sounds of water and the serene poolside view can be incredibly calming. Practice mindfulness exercises like deep breathing or meditation while floating or soaking up the sun.
  • Socialisation & laughter: Gather friends and family for poolside games, picnics, or simply relaxing conversations. Laughter and social connection are vital for mental and emotional well-being.

Maintaining a Healthy Pool

  • Cleanliness is key: Regular cleaning and proper chemical balance are crucial for preventing harmful bacteria and ensuring a safe swimming environment. Consult Apple Pools for water testing and expert advice on maintaining healthy pool chemistry.
  • Shower before and after: This simple practice washes away sweat, sunscreen, and other contaminants, keeping your pool cleaner and reducing the need for harsh chemicals.
  • Be mindful of hygiene: Remind everyone to use the restroom before swimming and avoid swallowing pool water. Encourage good hygiene practices around the pool area.
