Statistics tell us that 80% of people with New Year’s resolutions give up on them by February. Why would that be? It turns out that most of us pick lofty goals that are not realistic. Vowing to lose 50 pounds in six months, or that we will suit up and go to the gym five days a week may be completely impractical in real life. Picking smaller goals that are not inconvenient or tortuous provides a much greater likelihood of success. We’d like to offer some highly achievable goal suggestions that don’t even call for you to leave the house. Read on to see how to have a better 2022 with your hot tub.
The majority of people who make New Year’s resolutions name weight loss as their primary goal. There is no getting around the fact that to lose weight we need to reduce the number of calories we consume. However, did you know that using your hot tub regularly can also help with weight reduction? Sitting in a hot tub raises your body temperature and increases blood flow, which also happens when you exercise. While you relax in the warm water, your body is receiving some of the same benefits as it might get from exercise. Use your hot tub as a tool to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Particularly after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many of us set a goal to reduce the amount of stress in our lives. Your hot tub is your go-to solution to achieve this goal. The warm water has a soothing effect that seems to melt away tension and anxiety. Dr. Adolph Hutter, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, says that a soak in the hot tub can even lower your blood pressure.
Studies have shown that soaking in the hot tub for 20 minutes before going to bed helps a person fall asleep faster, sleep longer, and sleep more deeply. If you suffer from poor sleep, you may want to give your hot tub a try and see if it helps!
Improved Relationships with Loved Ones
Improving our relationships with our spouses and children is a goal that many of us aspire to. Designating a time for date night or family night together in the hot tub may be an effective way to achieve this desire. There is something about the calm and private atmosphere of the spa that invites relaxed conversations and closeness. You may find your kids open up to you better than ever when sharing the hot tub. Use your hot tub and connect with your loved ones.
Reduce Your Spending
Is your pocketbook smoking from all that holiday spending? Going on a budget is often high on the list of New Year’s resolutions. One way to save is to cut back on the amount of money spent dining out and on other forms of entertainment. You already own a hot tub. Why not make it the focus of a fun night in, rather than overspending at a pricey restaurant?
Setting goals for the new year does not have to be an exercise in failure. When you commit to making small changes rather than grand sweeping ones, you are far more likely to stick with them and see results. Want to have a better 2022 with your hot tub? Make it part of your regular routine and see if you don’t stick to those resolutions you made for the new year!
