Have you considered installing a backyard ice rink? It may seem like an extravagance you do not need, but there are actually many benefits to having your own ice oasis. Whether you love ice hockey or simply skating with your family, a backyard rink can provide hours of entertainment and enjoyment. Here are four main reasons to consider installing a backyard ice rink:
It can be a challenge to get exercise during the winter months, especially if you do not enjoy going to the gym regularly. However, ice skating is a great way to improve your fitness level. Skating helps you develop better balance, flexibility, and endurance. It is a cardio exercise that will build and tone muscles in your legs and core. Additionally, being outside even in the cold can help you make sure you’re maintaining a quality level of vitamin D.
While the powers of exercise to relieve stress are well documented, it is even more advantageous when you can get that exercise by doing an activity that you truly enjoy such as dancing or, in this case, ice skating. Spending time in nature has also been known to decrease stress levels. Whether you have been skating for years or you are giving it a go in your backyard for the first time, ice skating can be a great way to help relieve stress.
Spend time with family
Installing a backyard ice rink is a surefire way to bring your family together. Many families in this day and age are absorbed in electronics from waking to sleeping. By installing an ice rink, you encourage your family to leave their electronics behind and bond together.
Connect with the Community
When you install something as unique as an ice rink in your backyard, your neighbors will want to visit and enjoy some time on the ice. Your neighborhood will appreciate your contribution, and it can serve as a wonderful place to bring people together. You’ll also be providing the opportunities for exercise and stress relief to your friends and neighbors.
