Just because winter is approaching doesn’t mean that you should ignore the great outdoors until spring rolls around. Having a hot tub in your backyard is a wonderful way to extend the amount of time you can spend outdoors, even on cold nights. In fact, those chilly nights are some of the best ones to spend immersed in a bubbly hot tub with good friends.
Here are a few convincing reasons why you should be using your hot tub this winter even as the temperatures drop!
Ease Muscle Pain
In the winter, muscle pain can be even worse since the weather is dreary and chilly, having an affect on your mood and body. Plus, you’re probably spending less time outdoors, so your body is lacking in Vitamin D. You may also have fewer opportunities for exercise since winter weather doesn’t always cooperate here in MS.
A quick dip in the hot tub will soothe those tired, achy muscles and offer you some relief – no medications needed! For added relief, run the jets at their full intensity and enjoy a deep-tissue massage. Trust us, it’s a lot cheaper than what you’ll pay for a massage therapist, and it will feel just as good!
If you’re like many people, you’re probably lazier in the winter. When it’s cold and raining outside, it’s hard to find the motivation to go for a jog or work in your garden. In order to improve circulation, you either have to visit the gym or follow along to a workout video. Or, you could improve circulation the fun way: by sitting in a hot tub.
The hot water and bubbling sensations cause your body temperature to rise, dilating the blood vessels. This improves circulation, especially to the extremities. A soak in the hot tub can leave you feeling rejuvenated and improve the health of your heart and lungs. Sitting in the hot tub can also help with arthritis.
All that holiday stress from shopping for gifts, dealing with large crowds, hosting family get-togethers and traveling to loved ones’ homes can leave you feeling exhausted. Boost your mood and reduce stress with a quick dip in the hot tub. To make the most of this time, invite friends over or enjoy a quiet evening with your significant other. Spending time with friends and family without distraction is a great way to unwind after a long day.
