We’re firmly entering the territory of winter now, with Christmas ads appearing on TV and the weather taking a serious turn. This time of year can be a challenge, physically and emotionally, whether it’s the busyness of the last few months of the year or the shorter days and longer nights. Enjoying your hot tub can not only help you to get the most out of your winter experience but is also a great way to overcome some of these seasonal challenges. These are just a few reasons why winter is the best time to enjoy your hot tub.
For physical health
Winter is the time when we tend to be most vulnerable to colds and flu and most likely to feel unwell. But did you know that regular winter dips in your hot tub can actually help you to avoid the worst of the cold and flu season? Hydrotherapy has a lot of benefits for your immune system and can help to keep you healthy at this challenging time of year. For example, the warm water in the hot tub improves circulation and stimulates the production of white blood cells that are essential tools for fighting infections. If you do come down with a cold or sinus issues then the steam from your hot tub can help to relieve it, especially if you add some sinus-clearing aromatherapy too.
Step away from the stress
There is no doubt that this time of year can feel very stressful. Christmas is just around the corner and that can generate lots of pressure, whether it relates to family arrangements, work schedules or just dealing with the financial challenges of Christmas in 2022. If you tend to get easily stressed at this time of year then enjoying your hot tub on a regular basis can help to bring those stress levels down and give you more resources to cope. Treat your hot tub like an oasis of calm, somewhere to switch off and get that all-essential downtime. Take your favourite drink or book into the tub with you or use the time to practice some meditation or deep breathing to bring your calming nervous system back online.
Get warm and enjoy the season
If you find yourself feeling constantly icy during winter then immersing your body in warm water can feel like a huge relief. Enjoying your hot tub will not only warm you up but also provides a great way to get the most out of the winter months. Get out there under a full moon and do some stargazing. Or sit and watch the season change around you as nature reflects the transition from autumn to winter. Create a social environment and invite people into your hot tub to strengthen connections and engage with others. Or make it precious family time so that you have the opportunity to connect more before the end of the year.
