Everyone loves a hot tub. Why shouldn’t they? Hot tubs are fun to hang out in no matter where you are. Many times, people look for the hotels that offer hot tubs as an amenity when booking a trip or vacation. Of course, when using a hotel hot tub, you have to share it with a host of other people who are there for the same thing.
There’s no question that hot tubs can provide you a world of physical benefits when it comes to relaxing your muscles, easing joint and back pain, recovering from an injury, lowering your blood pressure, and actually lowering blood sugar levels in adults with Type 2 Diabetes. Plus, soaking in a hot tub can also help with weight loss.
There are, however, many important mental benefits from taking a long soak in a hot tub, and sometimes the mental benefits can outweigh the physical ones. Maybe you have a very high-stress job, maybe you are a stay-at-home Mom who could use a mental break, or maybe you are just a person who tends to stress a lot of many different things.
Did you know that stress can make you sick and cause a lot of problems in your body? In fact, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) says that more than half of the deaths between ages 1 and 65 are due to stressful lifestyles. Doesn’t that make you want to find a way to lessen your stress?
Soaking in a hot tub can actually reduce the effects of stress on your body, giving you a sense of well-being, relaxing the tension in your muscles, and stimulating the release of the “feel-good” chemicals in your brain. You’ll not only feel better mentally, but it radiates out to your physical self as well. You will actually get a great night’s sleep and this will leave you ready to tackle a new day feeling better than ever before.
