3 Reasons To Be Thankful for Your Hot Tub
If you move in journaling, crafting, or memory-keeping circles, you may know that some people like to devote the month of November to documenting gratitude. It can be as plain (jotting down a few words in any old notebook) or as elaborate (using decorations, pictures, or having a special journal just for the event) as you want. The only requirement is to document something you’re grateful for every day of the month. Whether you want to go so far as to journal your gratitude each day or not, we think spending the month focusing on thankfulness is a great idea! So, in that spirit, here are three reasons to be thankful for your hot tub.
It provides plenty of opportunities to spend quality time with your loved ones.
The wonderful thing about a hot tub is that it’s the perfect escape when you want some alone time, and it’s also a great recreation zone when you want to spend time with your loved ones. You can have an intimate date-night-IN with your partner any time you want. But you also get to enjoy simple soaks together every day. That little bit of nightly quality time will help keep your relationship strong.
Don’t forget to get the kids involved, too! Everyone loves using a hot tub. So, invite your kids or grandkids ages five and above to join you for a soak, too. There will be lots of talking and laughter involved, but no electronic devices in sight. Read this for the guidelines on letting kids use the hot tub.
Hot tubs provide stress relief.
When you’re feeling stressed, your hot tub is the quiet retreat you love to escape to, which undoubtedly helps relieve stress. But that’s not the only reason hot tubs lower stress. Soaking in a spa has been shown to lower cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and increase endorphin production.
Hydrotherapy eases pain.
From after-workout pain to chronic conditions, hot tub hydrotherapy attacks painful symptoms from three angles. First, the buoyancy of the water takes pressure off your muscles and joints, giving you some relief. Then, the heat relaxes your body and increases circulation, sending a boost of oxygen through your blood to promote healing. Finally, the massaging jets work out kinks and knots and gently massage away pain. It’s no wonder you leave the hot tub feeling so refreshed! If you have arthritis, chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, or any other painful condition, making hot tub soaks a regular part of your routine can be life-changing.
Have you decided to join in with all those who are going to spend November focusing on gratitude?
