August is recognized as National Wellness Month, and it’s the perfect time to focus on self-care and the ways in which you’re managing your stress and establishing healthy routines. This year especially has proven to be challenging, as many people across the globe are overwhelmed, overworked and juggling different responsibilities at once. For those same reasons, it’s also the perfect time to think about investing in a hot tub and start incorporating a daily soak so you can reap the benefits and help improve your overall health and well-being. 

How Can a Hot Tub Help Me? 

Chronic stress is becoming one of the biggest threats to good health. In fact, there’s scientific evidence that shows stress lowers your immune system, making you more susceptible to illness and disease. While a hot tub can’t cure anything, it can decrease your stress levels, which helps you avoid getting sick in the first place. 

So how can a hot tub help you improve your overall wellness? Here are just a few ways in which incorporating a hot tub into your daily routine can help you find balance. 

1. Calm Your Nerves. Soaking in a hot tub for 20 minutes has a similar effect on your nervous system as meditation. In those 20 minutes, you will experience a reduction in stress levels and anxiety, as well as promote self reflection while finding an emotional balance, all of which lead to the very soothing nature of calming your nerves. You can even enhance your 20-minute soak by incorporating aromatherapy into your hot tub. There are many different scents to choose from, while some are even formulated to address specific health needs. 

2. Improve Your Sleep. Sleep deficiency is linked to many health ailments, including depression, heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure and obesity, just to name a few. Lack of sleep also causes grumpiness, moodiness and a lack of focus. By incorporating a nightly soak in your hot tub at least an hour or two prior to bedtime will help your body experience a much deeper and more restful night of sleep, leaving you more refreshed in the morning and ready to conquer the day. 

3. Joint and Muscle Relief. For many of us, we hold our stress in our bodies. Tense muscles, aching joints, or just a nagging sense of heaviness we constantly carry. A hot tub’s relaxing properties — the constant temperature and the water’s buoyancy — create a cocoon of goodness around us that allows the pressure on your joints and muscles to dissipate, leaving you feeling weightless and relaxed…and stress free. By soaking in a hot tub and allowing the hydrotherapy massage jets to work through your muscle and joint tension, you’ll experience much-needed physical relief. 

4. Mental Health Break. Sometimes you just need some alone time, and one of the best places you can get that is in the comfort of your hot tub while taking in nature. Giving yourself permission to escape the rigors of work or parenting is good for the soul. Finding “you time” and incorporating it into your daily routine will help improve your mental health. Turn on the jets, let your body enjoy the hydrotherapy massage and just decompress. You’ll thank yourself later.
