Are you a man that likes to see the sights rather than sit beside the hotel pool? Being made to have a rest day by the Mrs? Here are some tips on making the most of that all day by the hotel pool.
Ensure that you look great and are comfortable for the whole day
If you're going to be staying in just one spot for the entire day, see to it that you'll do it in style and with maximum comfort. This will allow you to better enjoy yourself even if you're just on your own and chilling out. Choose men's swimwear and great mens swim trunks that fit you and give you the confidence and comfort to last all day. If you're not comfortable with your swimwear, staying in one just one place without nothing much to do (especially if you have been forced by your wife to stay put) will be pure torture.
Bring along stuff that will keep you occupied
Daydreaming can only do so much to keep your mind busy while chilling out by the pool side, so make sure to pack a few things that will help you stay occupied. For instance, you can bring some reading materials with you such as a good book or a few magazines. This will surely help you stay relaxed and busy for a couple of hours or more. Plus if you haven't got the time to finish a book that you've been reading for so long because of your busy schedule, now is the perfect time to catch up on your reading.
If you're not the reading type, you can install a few apps in your phone. Gaming, news, and social media apps such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter will surely help you pass the time and at the same time, allow you to find out what your mates or other people are up to.
Order some beverages
Time for a beverage? Nothing makes pool time my enjoyable that ordering a cool beverage or two. It is also good for quenching your thirst, especially if it's particularly hot out. However, remember to drink responsibility. Nobody wants to see a raving drunk by the poolside. And more importantly, don’t mix alcohol and swimming to ensure your safety.
Get a hotel pool-side massage
Fancy yourself some poolside massage? If you do, see if the hotel is offering poolside massage services and be sure to sign yourself up. A massage is a great way to relax and rejuvenate yourself. What's more, it has numerous benefits to your overall health and wellbeing. If you want to make this a couple's activity, consider surprising your better half and have her join you for an afternoon of invigorating poolside massage.
Enjoy Your Day Off
Take the opportunity to slow things down and simply just be. By spending just lounging around by the hotel pool, you can re-energize yourself and enjoy some much-needed break from your usual day to day activities.
