There’s no doubt about it, a swim spa or hot tub can enhance just about every area of your home life. From improving your health to reducing stress to bringing you more ways to relax and enjoy your time at home, a home spa does it all. Let’s look at the top four ways you can use your swim spa or hot tub to live a happier, healthier lifestyle.
1. Learning to Relax
Let’s face it; life can be stressful sometimes. From work, to family issues to personal commitments, you likely have a lot on your plate.
Well, one of the best things you can do for your own physical and mental health is to de-stress and unwind at the end of the day. No, you don’t have to take a class to learn how to relax. One of the easiest ways can be found in your own back yard. Your spa.
The healing power of heat and jet massage will relax your body while loosening tight muscles and soothing aches and pains. You’ll always leave the spa feeling far better than when you went in.
2. Spend More Time Outside
Spending time outdoors is great for your body and mind. In fact, fresh air has been proven to decrease stress hormones in the body while the sun stimulates your brain’s production of serotonin, a chemical that regulates mood and aids in concentration.
Reaping these benefits isn’t hard when you have a swim spa or hot tub beckoning you. Whether you schedule regular physical activity in your swim spa or spend time soaking in your hot tub, you’ll be getting lots of fresh air and all the benefits that go along with it.
3. Spend Quality Time With Family
You might not think of your hot tub or swim spa as a place to have family time, but they can be the perfect way to reconnect with your loved ones at the end of the day or on the weekends. Your swim spa is the ideal place for swimming and water games while your hot tub is perfect for relaxing together and catching up. It’s also great for date night once the kids are in bed. Head on out to your spa for a peaceful soak under the stars with your partner. It’s the perfect way to add some romance to your night.
4. Regular Exercise
Whether you have a swim spa or a hot tub, your home workouts can truly be taken to the next level. Forget about traditional land exercise. The water is where it’s at if you want a bigger calorie burn. Whether you swim laps, row in your swim spa or opt for something less traditional, you can get a full-body workout. You can try jogging in place, yoga, and strength training with water dumbbells in your swim spa or hot tub. The extra resistance provided by the water ups the intensity of every move, meaning you get more out of every workout.
