There are several benefits of hot tub ownership. Advantages that include soothing sore or inflamed muscles and joints, promoting relaxation for a restful night’s sleep, and quieting your mind. Lounging in a hot tub, whether in-ground or above ground, can also help support fitness goals by loosening stiff muscles.
Here are just four benefits of hot tub ownership.
Stress is a natural reaction to life experiences. Everyone feels stressed from time to time, and in very short intervals, this may prove beneficial. Too much stress, however, can have lasting effects on your physical and psychological well-being. Chronic stress is associated with insomnia, high blood pressure, tense muscles, headaches, etc. Relaxing in a hot tub for 15 to 20 minutes a day is an effective tool for managing stress. For best results, combine with meditation.
Studies have shown that increasing your body temperature before bed can help facilitate sleepiness, initiating sleep earlier, and helping ensure a higher quality of restful slumber. Relaxing in the hot tub for just minutes each day promotes relaxation, which can also reduce stress and soothe sore muscles, as well as help you wake up feeling refreshed for the day. Aim for 15 to 20 minutes each day to maximize benefits.
Soothes Aches & Pains
For people with aches or pains, or who are physically active, soaking in hot water can help loosen tense muscles. This in turn in helps to soothe aches and pains. Consider implementing some water aerobics to help extend your range of motion. Some easy exercises include rolling your shoulders, bending your knees, twisting your torso, and bringing your knees to your chest.
Strengthens Familial Relationships
A recent study, commissioned by Visit Anaheim, found that American families manage less than 45 minutes of quality time together on weekdays. Contributing factors included work and school, household chores, and technology. When you can’t find more time in your day, turn your focus to quality time, rather than quantity. A hot tub is an ideal setting for unplugging and reconnecting with your loved ones. There are several games you can play, like “keep away” or “Who Am I?,” too.
