Leisurely Poolside Activities to Celebrate Labor Day





Labor Day is a day to celebrate all the hard work you do day-in and day-out, so instead of stressing out over deadlines and grueling away at work, you can spend the day relaxing by your pool (with or without friends and family).


Here’s just a few ways you can relax poolside on Labor Day:


  • Fitness: Exercise is a known stress reducer and leaves you feeling good. After a quick sweat session to combat any stress, you can easily relax and enjoy the rest of your day. Swimming is a form of exercise that most people can enjoy at any age. It’s low impact, easy on the joints, increases flexibility, and helps you lose weight. It also enhances your sense of wellbeing. Plus, there’s that wonderful feeling of buoyancy that no other sport or activity offers.


  • Fun Floats: There’s nothing quite like floating languidly in a pool to get you into relaxation mode. Now, you can even make a silly statement with your choice of flotation device.


  • Waterproof Speakers: They say that music can soothe the savage beast, so select the songs that make your mind drift away as you lay out or lounge in the water. If you don’t have an outdoor entertainment system, a floating speaker can be used in the pool or near the spa.


  • Games: The opposite of work is play, so spend the day enjoying a few fun games while keeping cool inside your pool. Besides basketball and volleyball, floating games and centers that allow you to play poker or chess in the pool.


  • Light Reading: Take advantage of the time off by diving into a good book. Nothing beats disappearing into a compelling story while soaking up the summer sun.


  • Bathing Suits and BBQ: Whether it’s a party for one or a larger group gathering, stock up on your favorite foods to throw on the grill and enjoy the sizzling sound and smells of a traditional backyard BBQ.
