Hot tubs are relaxing, rejuvenating and fun, but many of us only get to enjoy a luxury like this once or twice a year at most. Instead of heading all the way to your local spa, or patiently awaiting your next holiday why not invest in a hot tub for your own home? And enjoy its benefits year round.
Provides effective stress relief
If you find it hard to switch off at the end of a long, hectic day, a hot tub could be the answer. Hot tubs use a combination of warm water and massage jets to soothe aching muscles and ease tension in the joints. While hot tubs provide numerous physical health benefits, they are also excellent at helping to calm the mind. Studies have shown that regular bathing in warm water has numerous positive effects on mental health, including sufficient sleep and low stress levels. However, while these benefits can be achieved in a standard bath, hot tubs are purpose-built for relaxation, and provide additional muscle relief. What’s more, by installing a hot tub in the privacy and comfort of your own home means you can use it at a time that suits you. Whether this is after you’ve put the kids to bed, or in the middle of the day!
A healthy Social Activity
Our hectic modern schedules can often make it difficult for us to spend quality time with our loved ones. Not only is hard to pencil everyone in, but organising time together often means calorie-laden restaurant meals or late night’s full booze! Thankfully, hot tub bathing is one social activity with positive health benefits. As a hot tub owner, you’ll be able to invite your pals round for a relaxing evening in, rather than an expensive night out. You’ll also be able to enjoy more quality time with a partner. A night in a hot tub also means no modern distractions; it can be frustrating to find your friend is looking down at their phone screen during a conversation, but with a hot tub this problem is eliminated. A hot tub provides the perfect setting for a good chat.
Can help aid a Restful Sleep
If you’re like 32% of Brits, who admit to sleeping poorly most nights, then you may want to make a soak in the hot tub part of your new evening routine. A daily soak in a hot tub could help reduce the amount of time it takes you to get to sleep, as well as improve the quality of the sleep you get. So, if you find yourself tossing and turning most nights, consider investing in a hot tub.
A great post workout reward
Whether exercise is something you enjoy or something you tolerate, it’s an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Many of us require an incentive to exercise, such as the reward of a toned physique or improved health. On the other hand, many of us are more inclined to exercise if there’s an immediate reward, and while there’s no harm in indulging, some ‘treats’ are healthier for us than others. A soak in the hot tub is a reward that your muscles will thank you for, and it certainly beats reaching for the biscuit tin! Next time you’re pushing yourself through a tough workout, think about the reward of lying back in a bubbling spa and you may find yourself working harder than ever before.
