If you’ve been considering the possibility of getting a hot tub, you’ve probably given some thought to how and when you’d use it. While there are certainly a vast array of occasions to use your hot tub, there are probably some you haven’t even considered. So, if you need a little extra incentive to take the plunge, here are some of the best times to enjoy your hot tub.
It’s no secret that date nights have been hard to come by lately. Many restaurants have been closed and most activities are canceled. Not to mention the complexities of having to invite someone into your home to watch your kids.
Having a hot tub in your own backyard gives you a little getaway of your own. Once the kids are tucked safely in bed, head out to the hot tub with some beverages and a snack tray. It gives you the feeling that you’re going somewhere special together, but you’re still safely at home.
Everyone talks about walking in a winter wonderland, but no one says anything about hot tubbing in it. There’s something quite magical about slipping into a swirling hot tub while the surrounding air is quite chilly. It awakens your senses and helps to clear your mind, relieving tension and stress in a matter of minutes.
When you know you’ve got a stressful day ahead, going for a quick soak in the hot tub really starts you off on the right foot. It gives you a few minutes to yourself and allows you to melt away some of the stress you might have built up about the day ahead. Try holding off on answering emails or checking social media. Instead, place some music or read your favorite book while gearing up for the day.
If you struggle with winding down at the end of the day, relaxing in the hot tub a short time before bed (about 1 ½ hours before bed is ideal) can really help. The warm water soothes and relaxes your muscles and you get a chance to mentally check out for a while. Studies have shown that immersing yourself in water about 102 degrees is perfect for unwinding for a great night’s sleep.
Post Workout Recovery
In some ways, it’s great to feel the burn the day after you’ve had an intense workout. It reminds you that you worked your muscles hard and met (or exceeded) your goals. On the other hand, sometimes it’s tough to get through the day when your muscles are screaming in pain. This is another time when having a hot tub comes in incredibly handy. The warm water soothes and relaxes those tense muscles. Also, circulation is increased, which promotes healing. With less post-workout pain, it’s easier to keep motivated on your fitness journey.
