Can I Use My Hot Tub Every Day?
If you are on the verge of becoming a hot tub owner, you may have wondered “Can I use my hot tub every day?” You most definitely can and there are a number of great reasons why you should. While it is important to follow basic health and safety guidelines such as how long to stay in your hot tub, keeping hydrated and using the recommended temperature settings, soaking in your hot tub every day will invite a plethora of wellness benefits into your life. Keep reading below to find out what some of the top reasons are to use your hot tub every day.
Reduction in Stress and Anxiety
In today’s world between work, family commitments and the hectic routines of everyday modern life, many of us are always stressed out. Between work deadlines, lengthy commutes, bill payments, managing relationships, keeping up with your children’s activity schedule, walking the dog and putting dinner on the table each night, by the end of the day it can feel as if you ran a marathon.
When you own a hot tub, taking a daily soak (or even better one in the morning and one in the evening) can lead to an improved emotional and psychological state. Taking a 15-minute soak as soon as you wake up can help you focus on your day ahead and help you feel calm and mentally prepared. At night, taking a soak can soothe the stress of the day away and help you unwind.
The combination of warm temperature, water buoyancy, and massage jets help release muscle tension, allowing your body to relax, distance your mind from distractions and relieve symptoms of anxiety.
Better Range of Motion
The older we get, the less range of motion we have. While this can occur very gradually for some, others can experience it earlier in life as a result of many factors such as accumulated sports injuries, arthritis, medical conditions or even genetics.
Daily use of your hot tub will provide the benefit of hydrostatic pressure, which reduces joint inflammation and helps improve your mobility.
Especially for anyone that suffers from stiff, painful joints or arthritis, a hot tub is the perfect place to perform gentle exercises and stretches. The water buoyancy takes pressure off our joints, allowing us to be more pliable and comfortable.
Improved Quality of Sleep
Insomnia and other sleep disorders are incredibly common and frustrating. Lack of sleep has a long list of nasty side effects, including depression, lost productivity, increased stress and anxiety as well as feeling frustrated.
Using your hot tub daily can do wonders to improve your quality of sleep. Soaking in the warm water increases the circulation in your body which helps to lower your blood pressure as well as reduce stress. Better circulation helps slow your heart rate, which prepares your body for sleep. The water also increases your body temperature which is beneficial as after you get out and your body temperature begins to drop, your brain recognizes this as a signal that it is time to sleep.
Melt Away Sore Muscles
Stiff neck from staring at a computer all day or sore back from chasing your little ones around? The hydrotherapy massage programs in your hot tub can help soothe your sore muscles away, eliminate kinks, knots, and stiffness and improve your overall well being.
With quality hot tub models, like Hydropool, you can customize your massage programs to target the specific areas that your body needs the most so that you can reap the healing benefits of hydrotherapy.
