Most excuses you’ve used to talk yourself out of buying a hot tub don’t work anymore.
Years of innovation and competition have driven prices down and created financing options for those whose budgets are tight.
Too much work?
Complaints of extensive maintenance or water upkeep have resulted in self-cleaning mechanisms and better spa chemicals to minimize maintenance.
Not enough room?
Issues of space have been resolved by the creation of new folding hot tubs. Okay, we’re just joking about that one. Folding hot tubs aren’t a reality…yet.
So now that your excuses are debunked, here are four reasons why you NEED to buy a hot tub.
That’s right, there are medicinal properties of hot, swirling water. Sitting in a hot tub can increase circulation and blood flow, which can help soothe aching muscles and pain. Because humans are slightly less dense than water, stress and pressure in our bodies, specifically our joints and muscles, is relieved in the water. This is especially beneficial for people with arthritis, fibromyalgia, or other musculoskeletal conditions. For those who are simply sore after a hard day of work, a hot tub can work wonders on aching muscles.
Did you know that 1 in 3 adults don’t get enough sleep, according to the CDC? That is, they get less than 7 hours, which is the recommended healthy amount to “promote optimal health and well-being.” If you have a hard time falling asleep, a hot tub may be just what you need to help you fall asleep quickly and soundly. Before and while you sleep, your body cools down to a lower body temperature than when you’re awake. By elevating your body temperature before bed, and then forcing your body to undergo the rapid cool-down process once you get out of the hot tub, your body prepares for sleep.
When your days are jam-packed with work and running around it can be hard to find time for yourself without scheduling a night out. With a hot tub, you can indulge in self-care every night if you want. The warm water and gentle massage from the hot tub can release endorphins, which can boost your mood and relieve your stress. Being in the fresh air more often can’t hurt either, right? A hot tub can give you the unplugged time you need to ponder, think, and meditate. It can also be a reward or something you have to look forward to after a hard day of work
Quality Relationship Time
How much of your free time is spent in front of a screen? Even when we make time for our partner, we usually end up in front of a screen of some sort. A hot tub provides quality communication opportunities away from technology that allows you to focus on each other. Busy parents can meet at the end of the day and talk about things other than soccer games and parent-teacher conferences. You’ll be surprised at how adding just 20 minutes or so of quality time together each day can improve your relationship and affection toward each other.
