Ah…the age-old question. It’s that time of year again (yes, January is just around the corner!) and many of us will be forming New Year’s resolutions to create positive changes in our lifestyles.
Here are some of our top 12 reasons for making a hot tub part of your New Year – a reason for every month!
1: It’s good for you!
First and foremost, a hot tub is an investment in your own wellbeing.
Oftentimes, we prioritise almost anything over what our bodies actually need, namely, rest and relaxation. We all encounter physical and mental stresses in our daily lives, and these often leave us exhausted, tense and aching. A hydrotherapy massage in your hot tub can go a long way towards alleviating many of these issues:
- The heat from the water opens up your blood vessels, increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients around the body.
- Powerful jets can target sore and tense muscles, increasing blood and oxygen circulation to those specific areas.
- The water’s buoyancy makes you feel weightless, taking pressure off your joints.
As you feel tranquillity come over you, give in to it, remember – it’s good for you!
2: Staycation Savings
The running costs for a hot tub during winter typically average at around £30 per month, and these will be even lower in the summer months. Hot tub time is a great boredom-buster if you’re planning a staycation. It can be a luxurious solo treat, part of time with the family, or a place for chatting and catching up with friends – either way, it’s certainly going to beat a plane ticket on price!
3: You can make it a family activity!
Finding a work-life balance is often tricky, but despite our busy lifestyles, we all can agree that quality time with family is always time well spent; spending time with loved ones in your hot tub is a fantastic opportunity to bond!
Why not consider setting aside time specifically for hot-tubbing with all the family?
Making this space for your family to decompress after a long day of work or school is a great way to reconnect. A hot tub is a space where you can talk to one another about more meaningful things than just the hectic day-to-day running of the house.
You can spend this time in contemplative silence, or laughing at each other’s jokes – either way, the most important thing is that you’re together, and more than likely, growing a stronger and closer bond as a result.
4: Perfect for your Bedtime Routine
We can’t always maintain the perfect routine… but taking time to care for yourself is important if you’re looking to face the next day reinvigorated as opposed to completely worn-out. Incorporate a 15-minute hot tub soak and massage into your bedtime routine; once you get out of your tub, the drop in your body temperature will trigger the sensation of sleepiness. In other words, you’re more than ready to be snug as a bug!
Regular hot tub usage has been shown to improve your quality of sleep (a fundamental pillar for overall health). We all need restorative sleep to face the day ahead, only then are we truly putting our best foot forward. Unfortunately, far too many people put up with the ill-effects of sleep deprivation. However, by working a hot tub soak into your routine, you’re introducing an effective tool to combat substandard sleep, which can ultimately improve your health and wellbeing in the long-term.
5: There’s something for Everyone
One of the best things about modern hot tub ranges, is their ability to cater for so many different individual needs. You’re in control of how strong your massage is, the temperature of your water – you get to personalise your therapy for you.
Different people have different needs, so please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss what you’re looking for specifically. As we stock a wide range of tubs, we will work to find the best fit for you – whether you’re looking for state-of-the-art luxury or something more affordable and compact for urban living, we’ll be more than happy to help!
6: Recover from your January Workouts
January signifies the hopeful, fresh start to the year, and gets many of us motivated to make healthier choices. Despite what the cynics say, many people do manage to stick to their resolutions, and this in turn, results in a lasting change for the better.
We all know that moving our bodies is good for our heart and health, but that doesn’t make it all the easier to get up for the 6AM morning jog. If you need motivation, just imagine the warm soak you can treat yourself to once your exercise is done. Whatever sport you choose to take up, your achy muscles will thank you after being treated to a therapeutic massage in your tub. When we look after our bodies, our bodies look after us – our mental wellbeing improves and we can face our daily challenges readily and with a clear head.
7: Unplug and Unwind
It sounds cliché, but the truth is that we really are constantly “plugged-in”. If we’re not looking at a computer screen, we’re looking at our phone screens. All of this is fine in moderation, but in excess, it can negatively impact our eyesight, posture and mental health. A hot tub is an ideal place to make time for ‘un-plugging’ from work emails, the internet, and your phone. You’ll soon find that it’s definitely worth trading 20 minutes of your time in the virtual world, for the comfort and relief that comes with getting back in touch with your own senses.
8: It can add value to your Property
Hot tubs are portable and can go where you go, but perhaps an overlooked perk of showcasing a hot tub in your garden, is the appeal this could add in the minds of potential buyers or renters.
A stylish hot tub, tastefully presented in a garden setting, only sweetens the deal.
9: The Life of the Party
There are only so many times that coming round for tea will be all that exciting, and sometimes the idea of heading out and about can seem downright overwhelming.
If you crave a relaxing alternative when it comes to socialising (all from the comfort of your own backyard) – a hot tub certainly fits the bill!
A hot tub soak with cherished friends may be just the activity you need to slow down time, live in the moment and create treasured memories.
10: It’s always there for You
In order to be used in the most energy efficient way, your hot tub should always be hot and ready, so that you can get straight in enjoy its benefits at any time of the night or day. The insulated cabinet and thick thermal cover keep the heat trapped inside so that you never find yourself having to wait around when you feel like jumping in.
