The weather is getting warmer here in Arlington, VA! We always recommend finding ways to keep cool during the summer, which is why we’re sharing some tips on our favorite way to keep cool: swimming. In this week’s Wildwood Towers Apartments Blog, we’re going to share with you some swimming tips to keep you safe!
When you’re headed out to enjoy a day at the local pool, make sure you’re dressed for the occasion. Make sure you’re dressed in swimwear instead of jeans or any other non-appropriate clothing. This may seem like a silly tip, but there are many unfortunate accidents that happen because people aren’t dressed correctly. Although it isn’t clothing, make sure you wear enough sunscreen!
Take a Rest
Swimming is a full body exercise and it can get tiring if you’ve been swimming for an extended period of time. Avoid cramps and the potential for a drowning incident by taking a rest. Do yourself a favor and lay out by the side of the pool and get some sun instead of splashing around for hours without rest. If you have children with you, ensure that they too are taking adequate breaks from swimming.
Don’t Swim Alone
As much as you may trust your swimming capabilities, we recommend not swimming alone. Having someone else with you will make it more fun, but also you’ll have someone else there to aid you if you happen to experience cramps or a situation that could lead to drowning. Invite your friends or family to spend a fun and exciting day with you at the pool.
