As people are becoming increasingly overwhelmed, overworked, and juggling different responsibilities at once many people have been investing in hot tubs and incorporating daily soaks into their routines to improve their health and overall well-being.
How can a hot tub improve my wellbeing?
Chronic stress is quickly becoming one of the most serious health risks. High levels of stress have been proven to impact your immune system’s ability to work effectively, making you more prone to illness and disease. Although a hot tub can’t cure anything, it can help prevent you from becoming unwell in the first place. We’ve put together some great ways that regular hot tub use can benefit your mental and physical wellness.
Encourage you to relax
Did you know that a 20-minute soak in a hot tub has a similar effect on your nervous system as meditation? By relaxing in a hot tub, you’ll quickly notice a reduction in stress levels and anxiety, helping you to reach a state of emotional equilibrium. Take this to the next level by introducing aromatherapy to your hot tub session – pick your favourite scent and drift away into a state of utter tranquillity.
Promote a better night’s sleep
Sleep deprivation is associated with a variety of health problems such as depression, heart disease, and obesity – and can lead to irritability and a lack of focus. A nightly dip in your hot tub, preferably an hour or two before bedtime, can allow your body to recognise that it’s time to relax, leading to a deeper and more restful night’s sleep.
Relief for muscles and joints
We tend to hold stress in our bodies in the form of tense muscles and aching joints. The calming effects brought on by hot tubs from the warmth and buoyancy of the water allow the pressure that has built up in our muscles and joints to dissipate, leaving you to feel weightless and completely relaxed.
Support your mental health
From time to time, we all need to take a break to recentre and rejuvenate – and there’s no better place to do this than in a hot tub. Taking time away from the stresses of daily life, that being work or parenthood. Finding “you time” is incredibly important in the world we live in and actively supports a healthy mindset.
