Our medical practitioners are always telling us that we are overweight and out of shape and if you have a family doctor then it’s likely that he or she has informed you that your kids could stand to lose a few kilograms as well. The past 2 to 3 years have been very difficult for families all across the country and because we have been stuck at home for most of that time, many of us have put on excess weight that we need to get rid of. It’s difficult starting a new exercise routine because it is boring and so you as the head of the family need to come up with another idea that allows everyone to lose weight but have fun as well.
This is when your local water park Phuket comes into the fold because this provides you and your family members with the perfect distraction that will also allow you to burn off those excess calories as you have fun. If you have never been to a water park before then you should know that there are many health benefits that come with it and the following are just some of those.
- You burn calories – There are so many activities going on in a water park at any given time and so you and the kids are going to the walking to the various rides and slides throughout the day. This amounts to significant amount of steps throughout the day and if you and the kids can clock up 10 to 15,000 steps over the day then you are doing particularly well.
- It’s good for the immune system – The water park rides and activities are generally outside and so you and your family members get to enjoy the beneficial effects of sunshine throughout the day. Sunshine offers all of us vitamin D which is essential for a strong immune system and this is something that we need coming out of the current pandemic.
Not only do you get to enjoy the above two benefits but spending a whole day in a water park is an incredible amount of fun. It’s likely that your family unit has weakened over the past 2 to 3 years and so this provides you with the perfect opportunity to get everyone together in one place at one time and to really reduce everyone’s stress and anxiety levels. It is also incredibly affordable and you will find yourself going back to these water parks again and again.
