Reading is an important skill and hobby because it helps to further the development of the mind. Understanding the written word is one way the mind grows in its ability. Not every day can be spent by the pool so we suggested some light reading to feel like it’s still summer when you’re at home.

With the winter season upon us, it becomes a little more difficult to get out of the house. However, swimming is a sport you can do all year round, and everyone can participate, especially when there’s a heated pool!

Here are our top 4 reasons why you and the family should hit up the pool for your next family outing:

  1. Swimming is one of the few sports you can do throughout your lifetime
  2. It does not require lots of special equipment and gear, all you really need is a swimsuit
  3. It creates a reason to get together— a good way to socialise with your family
  4. Did you know that swimming can boost your immune system? When cells in the body regularly get blood and oxygen, they function better

So what are you waiting for, grab your bathers and let’s go!
