Winter is a time of widespread sniffles, stiffness, and stress. Winter stress is a unique product of reduced sunlight and our bodies’ natural inclination to slow down and conserve energy in colder temperatures all while society continues to buzz at its normal pace. Strains on our health also tend to increase in colder weather. Fortunately, your home hot tub can help reduce your winter-themed stress as you get yourself more relaxed in it.
Relieve Stiffness and Tension
Stiffness and muscle tension can be a result of our winter stress or it can be part of the cause of our winter stress. Regardless of the roots, your physical aches and pains may be temporarily relieved by regular hydrotherapy in a jacuzzi tubs. For a lot of us, winter is a time of greater inactivity. The shorter days and colder temperatures discourage us from spending time outdoors, and our bodies generally experience greater stiffness in the cold. The warm massaging action of your hot tub jets stimulates those stiff muscles and joints while you relax and take it easy. You’ll probably feel more energized after your soak as some of that tension melts away and your body feels warmed up and ready for activity.
Soaking in a hot tub while snow falls softly all around you
Getting out of the hot tub while snow falls on you will turn you into a sprinter in the Winter Olympics. But not everyone wants to go for that gold medal. If that’s you, it’s likely you’d rather close things up and wait until the weather’s warm again before venturing into the spa. Now, you get it. Relaxation and general stress relief are among the many benefits your hot tub offers. Stepping out of the cold air and into warm, softly-bubbling water is enough to wash away your concerns in the moment. You may even plan an occasional home spa day where you fully focus on your practice of renewal and refreshment.
