One thing most of us can agree on is that we are overworked, overstressed, and sleep-deprived. Most people see a hot tub as a luxury to be enjoyed by those with less stressful lives. In actuality, it should be the opposite. Those of us needing improved health and reduced stress levels should be utilizing a hot tub at home daily. Let’s go over just a few of the health benefits of owning a hot tub.
The most apparent health benefit to relaxing in your personal hot tub is stress relief. But how important is stress relief to the average adult? Over time, prolonged amounts of stress can lead to serious health problems in every part of the body. The American Institute of Stress notes how stress can negatively affect your nervous system, musculoskeletal system, endocrine system, gastrointestinal system, reproductive system, and cardiovascular system. The effects on the cardiovascular system can be the most evident and debilitating long term. When the heart rate is regularly elevated, it works too hard for too long causing high blood pressure which significantly increases the risk of heart attack or stroke. Taking time to relax in some soothing, warm water can literally save your life.
Spending time in a hot tub can allow your body to sweat out any unnecessary and unhealthy toxins in your system. Many people have reported that detoxing gives them more energy, drive, and focus. In her book, Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman says that detoxing can also help with sinus problems, congestion and may even assist in clearer skin and digestion health, as well as mental clarity. The long-term benefits of a regular detox will bring a strengthened immune system and improved overall energy levels.
Lack of sleep is something that many of us are struggling with. Many people go to bed with the stress and tension of the day weighing heavy on their shoulders. Those who take the time to meditate in a relaxing and calm environment are able to achieve a higher level of REM sleep, leading to overall improved health. Studies have shown that prolonged sleep deprivation can lead to permanent damage of brain cells, making the idea of “catching up on sleep” impossible. Hot tub relaxation is the new counting sheep! Sitting in a hot tub can allow the body a chance to ease muscle tension and put the body in a calm and relaxing state, perfect for hopping into bed and falling asleep faster.
