According to the OC Register, swimming can make you happier in the following ways:
1.) Eliminates the Risk of Falling
2.) Builds Brain Power
3.) Relieves Stress
4.) Staves off Depression
5.) Immediate Sense of Accomplishment
If swimming can make you happier in these ways, then it stands to reason that swimming in your own backyard pool would just make all that happiness that much more accessible. Therefor, I feel comfortable drawing the line between installing a backyard pool and increased overall contentment in life.
Next, and with all due respect, I would like to add a sixth reason to the list:
6.) Achieving a lifelong goal
In the case of this particular home and this pool, having a backyard entertainment oasis was achieving a lifetime goal. They wanted to vacation like they were in Palm Springs, without ever having to leave the comfort of home. Being able to make these #backyardgoals happen for them made ME super happy, too. Should that be a seventh reason?
7.) Provides designer with feelings of fulfillment and well being.
Check out this Before and After shot:
Just LOOKING at that swimming pool makes me feel all sorts of happy!
To build this pool, we first had to remove an entire room from the side the home. Most people come to us asking us to ADD square footage, but these homeowners were asking us to take it away. Once the side room was removed and closed in, it was time to bring in the pool! This wasn’t a simple task however, as it involved a crane, and high-flying feats of strength and courage.

All of the hand-wringing and heart-pounding was worth it however, just to see these homeowners cannonball into their pool a single time.
The backyard now features three well-defined entertaining zones:
1.) The BBQ Area
2.) The Hangout Area
3.) The Pool Area
Now all that’s left in regards to finding better health and greater happiness is to suit up, and jump in!
