    there's nothing like a swim in the pool to...

    Which are correct:

    1) There's nothing like a swim in the pool to make you forget your problems.

    2) There's nothing like a swim in the pool in order to make you forget your problems.

    3) To make you forget your problems there's nothing like a swim in the pool.

    4) In order to make you forget your problems there's nothing like a swim in the pool.

    I think the first one is correct. I think the other ones work as well, but 'in order to' would not normally be used instead of 'to' in conversation.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
