Guest Post¦ If you’ve been thinking about buying a hot tub, you may be a bit apprehensive. After all, a hot tub is a big expense and you don’t want to end up with an unused, unloved item taking up space in your garden.
But there are numerous benefits to owning a hot tub and I’m willing to bet that, if you buy a hot tub, after you’ve reaped some of those benefits, you’ll fall in love with your purchase and will use your hot tub far more than you ever thought you would.
So, what are the benefits of a hot tub?
Hot tubs can improve sleep
Studies have shown that a soak in warm water before going to bed can help you not only get to sleep, but to remain asleep. This is good news for insomniacs or those of us who don’t always wake up feeling rested.
A good night’s sleep is vital for our physical and mental well-being and a hot tub can help with this.
Just a 15 minute soak in a hot tub before bed will raise your body’s temperature, which will help you to drift off and then help you to stay asleep as your body cools down.
The holy trinity of warm water, the massage from the jets and the weightlessness of floating in water is a great stress reliever.
Whether you want to relax after a day at work, after the kids are in bed or just because you’re worth it, a hot tub is the perfect sanctuary in which to unwind and destress.
Put some music on, lie back, close your eyes and let your cares drift away.
A hot tub brings your family together
If you’re forever asking your children to put their phones and tablets down so you can talk to them, you’re going to love a hot tub.
A hot tub brings your family together wonderfully as, with all that water around, screens will be banned and you’ll get to have a conversation without any distractions.
Of course, there’s nothing to stop you all watching a film on a screen safely away from the water. A hot tub movie night for the family will be a lot cheaper than the cinema and the other filmgoers won’t tut at you for talking through the film.
Benefits of a hot tub
These are just three of the benefits of owning a hot tub. There are plenty more benefits, not least hot tubs being a great place to invite friends around to for a party or drinks and nibbles.
When it comes to health issues, a hot tub has also been proven to help people with fibromyalgia, improve cardiovascular health, and studies have even shown that soaking in a hot tub can burn calories and help with weight loss (although a hot tub shouldn’t be used as a substitute for exercise and a healthy diet).
After reading the above, are you still hesitating over buying a hot tub? My guess would be ‘no’!
