Looking for an effective way to make some progress on your wellness goals this year? Want to jump start your wellness journey? Make your hot tub part of the plan! There are so many health benefits associated with hot tubs, and owning one of these relaxing oases can be an effective component when it comes to meeting all kinds of wellness goals. From physical fitness to emotional health, there’s no area that a hot tub won’t help improve. Ready to kick start your journey toward personal well-being? Let’s dive into how you can meet your wellness goals with a hot tub.
Hot tubs offer a host of physical benefits. They can help to increase flexibility, reduce muscle soreness and tension, and improve blood circulation. If you’re looking for an activity that is low impact but still contributes to your overall fitness goals, a hot tub could be the perfect thing. Just spending 20-30 minutes a day in the spa can make all the difference.
Your hot tub can also help you with your workout goals. First, try taking a hot tub soak before you work out. The warm water will limber up your muscles, making you more flexible and less likely to be injured.
Then, take a hot tub soak the day after working out. That’s right about the time that Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) will be kicking in. You know that hard-to-get-out-of-bed soreness you get 24 to 48 hours after a strenuous workout? That’s caused by the microtears in your muscles that happen when you push them to new lengths. It’s necessary for building muscle. But DOMS hurts and slows you down. The warm water and massaging jets of your hot tub will help. They’ll speed recovery, getting you back in the gym faster.
Hot tubs are also great for mental health and relaxation. After a long day of work, you can come home to your hot tub and let all your worries melt away. Not only will it help reduce stress, but it can also improve sleep quality, mood, and creativity. You can even add some calming, hot-tub-safe aromatherapy products to the water to really turn up the relaxation factor.
Soaking in a hot tub can be an effective way to combat stress. The warm water reduces your cortisol levels (the stress hormone) while increasing endorphin production (the feel-good hormone), creating a calming effect as you relax in the heated water. Used regularly, your hot tub can have a lasting effect on combating your stress levels.
Overall Wellness Goals
Hot tubs are a great way to improve your overall well-being. They are an excellent source of hydrotherapy which can promote healing from injury or illness, help with chronic pain relief, and improve immune function. Additionally, soaking in a hot tub can even help reduce blood pressure, leading to better cardiovascular health.
No matter what your wellness goals are, having a personal hot tub is the perfect way to make progress.
