Hot Tub Stress Relief

It’s no news that stress can greatly reduce our overall quality of life. Stress in small amounts may be easier to handle, but sometimes it’s best to take a break away from the demands of the world. What better way to do that than in your own hot tub? No need to book a flight to a beach when you can have your staycation at your own home! There are many benefits to owning and using a hot tub that most people may not be aware of. You won’t believe how much peace you’ll find and how much better you’ll feel by soaking in your hot tub for as little as 20 minutes per day. Not only will you feel relief right away, the effects of soaking can impact your overall health for years to come.

As everyone knows, stress can be extremely harmful to your health. Affected by stress, the heart works harder, digestion slows, and breathing becomes more rapid and shallow. Nearly every part of the body is affected. Researchers have estimated that 80% of disease is stress related. Soaking in your spa for only 20 to 30 minutes a day can significantly lower stress and anxiety. Stress is often tied to muscle tension which can be painful and impact your overall mood. Soaking and using the jets in your spa to relieve the tension can not only increase your mood, but also your health. Research has shown that stress can have a negative affect on your heart which can lead to many health concerns. It can also impact your immune health, which is very important to manage during all times of year.

Take time each day to have your quiet spa time. In this time, your blood vessels will relax. This makes it easier for your heart to pump with less effort, improving blood flow and circulation. Soaking in warm waters at 102˚F has proven to put your body into a deeply relaxed state. Your nervous system reacts to warm water in the same way that it reacts to meditation or other relaxed states. Hot tub jets give users a relaxing massage which stimulates the release of endorphins (the body’s natural “feel good” chemical), which act as the body’s natural painkiller. When soaking, the water supports approximately 90 percent of your body weight, relieving stress from your joints and muscles.

Another benefit of using your hot tub and reducing stress involves improving your social connections. Soaking in your spa with the people you care most about allows you to have deep conversations and rebuild or strengthen connections. Reduce feelings of loneliness by having strong relationships with your family and friends. Not only is a hot tub fun and enjoyable for the entire family, but it can be used as your relaxation space away from the stress in your everyday life. It is important to have your own place to get away after a long day. A hot tub is the perfect place for tranquil solitude, giving you the alone time you need to focus on yourself and relax.
