It’s 2022! With another year of hardships behind us, many of us are shifting our focus to become healthier, and happier in the new year.

From getting more active, taking time to rest when needed, or the most popular resolution for seemingly centuries, lose weight or start a healthier diet plan. But did you know that adding the use of a hot tub can lend you an extra hand in achieving these health-driven New Year’s resolutions? 

Hot tubs and spas are seen by many as just a means to relax at the end of a long day. However, there are many ways you can use it to better your health, mind, and body. 

It’s Beneficial for Your Body

When you think of a hot tub, you may think of the relief to your aching back or sore legs. Hot tubs and spas are a big help by loosening up tense muscles. This improves blood flow, and provides relief from aches and pains. This is called hydrotherapy, in which water is used as a healing agent. Heated tubs and baths are used by medical professionals to aid their patients in the recovery of mobility and strength.

Great for Your Mind

The topic of mental health has gained more attention in recent years, especially in the wake of the global pandemic. People began to look for more ways they could improve their mental health. If you were lucky enough to own a hot tub during this time, you may have found it to be your saving grace.

Studies have found that hot tubs and spas help to reduce your cortisol level. That’s the hormone that measures stress. Not only do hot tubs help lower stress, but it also puts you in a relaxed state of mind.

Water has therapeutic properties and paired with a warmer temperature, can further reduce anxiety and depression. Warm water provides a comfort of sorts, just as hot soup and tea are soothing when sick.
