There are a multitude of reasons why getting a good night’s sleep is important yet many people don’t. A common complaint is being unable to fall asleep even though you may feel very tired. Many people have bedtime routines that involve watching a little TV before bed to relax but in reality watching TV will stimulate your mind and only make falling asleep even harder. Trying taking a 15 minute dip in your hot tub before bed and you’ll reap the benefits of a good night’s rest in the morning.
Do you feel sleepy after taking a hot bath? There’s a reason for that. Taking a hot bath before bed tends to help you fall asleep more quickly and the same can be said for spending 15 minutes in your hot tub. Since warm water naturally relaxes the body, it is easier to fall asleep and then stay asleep.
In addition to relieving tension in the body, soaking in the hot tub for just 15 minutes can also help relieve pain by improving circulation within the body. Just like heating pads are used for relief on aching muscles, the heated water in a hot tub increases circulation and can be used for treating pain. Circulation plays a key role in pain management and poor circulation can lead to issues such as tension headaches and migraines. Many people suffering from chronic back or knee pain use warm water therapy for pain relief because it is so effective. It is a proven, cost effective, and non-addictive way to treat pain.
While the warm water relaxes the body, the buoyancy of the body in water creates a weightless feeling than can lead to relief for those suffering from arthritis. The hot tub water relaxes stiff muscles, allowing for greater circulation and increased flexibility. Bending your achy joints in warm water allows the water to support your joints and provides for a greater range of motion. The benefits to water therapy are numerous so why not make taking a dip in your hot tub a part of your daily routine?
Decrease Stress And Anxiety
One of the most common medical conditions diagnosed in today’s fast paced world are increased levels of stress and anxiety. There are many reasons why soaking in a hot tub can actually decrease stress and anxiety. While we already discussed above that warm water relaxes the body, did you know the jets play an important part as well? The hot tub jets can massage your body and relieve stress the same way going to a masseuse would. The jet pressure relieves tension in your muscles, especially the neck and back where the majority of stress is stored in the body. When buying a hot tub, there are many jet options and settings so check out a Fairlawn pool company to see all the options available to you. After spending a few minutes under the jets in your hot tub, you will physically feel the stress melt way.
