Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it’s 2024 already. Did you make a New Year’s resolution before the ball dropped in Times Square? You’re not alone. Every year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions. Some of the most common resolutions include:
- Losing weight
- Eating healthier
- Exercising more
- Spending more time with friends and family
If you made one of these resolutions, did you know that upgrading your outdoor living spaces can make it easier to keep those resolutions? Keep reading to learn how.
Losing Weight, Eating Healthier, Exercising More
We’re bringing the Big Three resolutions together because we all know the key to losing weight is to burn more calories than we consume. That means making healthier food choices and exercising more. How can enhancing your outdoor living spaces help you accomplish that?
Exercise In Your Backyard
If you install an inground pool, you have an easy place to get more exercise while enjoying the outdoors. Whether you do water aerobics or swim laps, it’s easy to make it a daily practice. Is yoga more your style? Build a serene corner into your patio where you can practice your downward dog.
By having the pool and patio right outside your door, it’s easier to work exercise into your daily routine. With a pool heater and patio heater, you can extend your outdoor exercise routine to encompass spring through fall.
Eat Healthier by Grilling More
Grilling is one of the healthiest ways to cook meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, and even fruit. To make grilling and cleanup a breeze, consider upgrading your outdoor space with a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen. And with a covered outdoor kitchen and patio heater or outdoor fireplace, you can make cooking outdoors a year-round event.
Add a Patio Garden
If you like fresh veggies, consider adding a patio garden. This can be a garden in pots, raised beds, or a larger portion of your yard, depending on how ambitious you are and how green your thumb is.
Experienced gardeners will tell you there are few things better than fruits, vegetables, and herbs picked just hours before they are served up on your plate.
Spend More Time with Friends and Family
By expanding and upgrading your outdoor living spaces, you now have a welcoming and fun place to entertain and make family memories. Pool parties, holiday parties, graduation parties, and more become more enjoyable when you have such an inviting space.
You’ll make new friends as well as get to see old friends more often. And if you have children, everyone will want to hang out at your house, meaning you’ll always know who your kids’ friends are.
Start planning now to use your backyard to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions.
