Once you own a hot tub it’s hard to imagine how you ever lived without it. For most, there is an overall improvement in quality of life. You can find yourself more relaxed, at ease and more comfortable in your daily routine.
Mental Health Benefits of a Hot Tub
Incorporating regular use of your Sundance® Spa into your regular routine can have positive effects on your mental health. Taking a small part of your day to sit in the rejuvenating water and allow your thoughts to wander can do wonders for mental and emotional health. A combination of the healing properties of the water, comfortable seating and powerful jets can result in:
Taking the time to yourself to listen to music, indulge in aromatherapy, enjoy your outdoor surroundings, read a book or just sit and relax with your thoughts can be very beneficial to your state of mind. Those who have a busy mind can always use this time to think and plan. You could plan what you are making for dinner, what you have to buy at the grocery store or even think about ideas for the weekend.
Sundance® Spas and the Physical Benefits
Once you have a relaxed mindset from regular use of your hot tub you can really begin to experience the physical benefits. You might find yourself holding less tension in your shoulders and back from ongoing stress relief or that you aren’t as stiff as you usually are due to a better night’s sleep.
Spending time in the hot tub allows your body to relax in an ergonomically friendly seat while you immerse your body into the comfortable and high-temperature water. Spending free time in this environment truly allows your body to enter a state of relief from the jet-infused water. Techniques like hydrotherapy, hydromassage, Watsu or reflexology are proven to help with:
- Pain relief
- Muscle soreness
- Joint pain
- Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
It can also be beneficial to lightly stretch your body while in your hot tub. You might enjoy stretching your muscles once your body is warm and relaxed.
Hot Tub Exercise
Exercising in your Sundance® Spa may feel better than exercising out of the water. The heat, buoyancy and jets can stimulate your muscles and put less stress on them while you work them. There are light exercises that can be done inside of your hot tub to help tone your body, increase your endurance and build muscle.
Before you begin any exercise regimen (especially one in a hot tub) it is highly recommended that you meet with your physician first to ensure that you do so safely. Your physician may also be able to provide you with resources on which hot tub exercises are best for you and your health.
Improve Your Social Life
Installing a hot tub in your backyard may be the key to improving your social life. An active social life can be a positive addition to any lifestyle. Having the chance to connect with family and friends on a regular basis can be beneficial for both your mental and emotional health. A hot tub installation allows for the chance to completely overhaul your backyard (if it needs some TLC) and turn it into a personal retreat. A hot tub installation provides the opportunity for you to add features during your backyard planning. You may contemplate adding:
- Outdoor furniture
- A gazebo
- A BBQ or grill
- Aesthetically appealing gardens or landscape
- A fire pit
- Water features
Having an outdoor oasis that you are proud of and would like to experience with others is a great first step in improving your social life. The perfect backyard getaway can result in the perfect social gathering.
