It might be cold and snowy outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your time outdoors. If the idea of staying toasty warm while enjoying the benefits of fresh winter air sounds appealing, then look no further than your hot tub. It’s the ideal way to kick back and relax this winter season. Relaxation is not the only benefit, however. Let’s examine the top reasons to make your hot tub part of your cold weather routine.
1. It Has Health Benefits
The winter season is often accompanied by colds and the flu, not to mention muscle strain from shoveling or slipping on the ice. Luckily, your Sundance® Spas hot tub can cure what ails you.
While heated water is typically associated with relaxation, did you know it can also improve your circulation? As your blood flow increases, your body’s white blood cell production rises and cells are transported to the areas of the body where germs or toxins are present. While daily hot tub dips can’t guarantee you won’t catch a cold, it can reduce your risk. Another thing regular hydrotherapy can help with is easing muscle strains and soreness sustained during snow removal. The heat combined with jet massage work together to relax tight muscles while also reducing inflammation.
2. It Relieves Stress
Believe it or not, winter weather can have a huge impact on your stress levels. Driving on bad roads and worrying about getting to meetings or appointments on time when the traffic is snarled up due to weather can leave us feeling decidedly anxious. If you’re looking for a natural way to relax and get rid of tension at the end of a long hard day, head to the hot tub. The warmth of the water combined with jet massage helps release tension and tightness from your muscles. The heat can also spike your endorphin production, leaving you with a feeling of satisfaction and well-being.
3. It’s a Great Way to Warm Up
If you’ve spent the day skating, skiing or snowmobiling, why not top it off with a nice relaxing soak. Not only will it treat sore and tired muscles, but it’s a quick and healthy way to warm up after spending a day outdoors.
Just be sure to wear a toque while you’re soaking to keep your ears warm and be prepared for your exit from the spa. Having thick, cozy robes on hand to slip into immediately after exiting the spa is a good idea. You should also have warm slippers or boots for your feet. Once out, don’t linger, beat a hasty retreat to the house to ensure you don’t get chilled.
4. It’s a Unique Way to Party
If you’re hosting a party this holiday season, why not make it a hot tub party? Be prepared with lots of towels and extra robes for your guests and put on some holiday tunes. Relaxing with friends under a cold starry sky while enjoying some hot cider or hot chocolate is an evening your guests won’t soon forget.
Not entertaining this holiday season? Why not have a hot tub New Year’s Eve party or head to the spa during half time at your Super Bowl party. The hosting possibilities are endless.
