People delighting in a new hot tub or thinking of buying one often ask “How often can I use my hot tub?” The short answer is that you can use it as often as you want! For a more in depth answer, you should think not just about the immediate benefits of relaxation for your body and your mind, but also the long-term benefits for your healthy lifestyle.
The odds are good that if you’re not spending much time in your hot tub, then you aren’t taking advantage of the full benefits of owning it. We want to inspire you to make your hot tub a daily part of your wellness routine, equal to how you make time for exercise.
Your hot tub is an investment in a more relaxed and healthier lifestyle. To fully take advantage of all its’ incredible wellness benefits, you should use your hot tub often, maybe even every day. In fact, spending 15 or 20 minutes in your hot tub every morning or every evening can have a substantial, positive impact on your health and attitude.
Also, to help keep it clean and ready for use, your hot tub needs to be run consistently, so there’s no need to have any concerns about using it often. Read on to find out how often you should use your hot tub and the benefits you will receive from a frequent soaking routine.
How Often Can and Should I Use My Hot Tub?
To maximize your hot tubs’ value and get the greatest benefit from your hot tub investment, you should soak for at least 15 minutes several times a week. Of course, you’ll want to develop a routine that is suitable for your desires and lifestyle. We think that the more you use your hot tub spa, the more you’ll appreciate it as a priority and the more you’ll want to find time for it.
Some people find that using their hot tub first thing in the morning ideally sets them up to prepare for exercise routines or stresses of the day ahead. If you have a long commute before starting work early in the morning, consider taking a dip in your hot tub first so you’ll be relaxed and ready for a long day.
Or, maybe your perfect time for a hot tub soak is later in the evening to ready your body for a restful night’s sleep. There’s nothing like the help of hydrotherapy and soothing warm water to unwind after a busy day.
Hot tubs have become popular with owners looking for a digital detox combined with a variety of wellness benefits from the soothing hydrotherapy. To accomplish this, daily use has been proven to provide a multitude of health benefits.
Just by using your hot tub for 15 to 20 minutes daily, or even every couple of days, can have a major impact on your health. A daily routine of hot tub use will help ease the aches and pains in your body, while loosening up stiff and tired muscles from your neck down to your legs and feet. As an extra bonus, regular soaking also stimulates enhanced blood flow, without placing unnecessary pressure on your joints.
Many respected hot tub manufacturers actively publicize that hot tubs utilized properly on a daily basis help to alleviate common symptoms, such as the effects of arthritis, back pain, and the silent build-up of stress. Some manufacturers have also incorporated advanced technology within their hot tub designs that are currently helping families to help ease painful skin conditions, and enhance their positive mood levels with special lighting, as part of daily or regular hot tub use every week.
Another major benefit of using your hot tub daily is attaining good quality sleep. We know that our hectic lifestyles and constantly being ‘switched on’ digital culture is leading to increased problems of disrupted sleep. If you are suffering from this problem then a daily hot tub session could be the solution to better sleep.
The Mental Health Foundation and the Surrey Sleep Research Centre have highlighted that almost two thirds of us are failing to realize the benefits of a good night’s sleep. Experts report that the problem has become so widespread because we are failing to switch off from a wide range of electronic stimulus and worries about keeping pace with our hectic lifestyles and work.
The daily use of hot tubs may be the ideal answer to duplicate the effect that parents of young children achieve by giving them a warm bath before bedtime. It is a natural process without having to resort to over the counter remedies and sleeping pills. A daily hot tub soak of 15 – 20 minutes prior to bedtime will naturally help your body unwind and realize deeper and more relaxed regular sleep to prevent illnesses and health issues that can develop as a result of a lack of quality sleep.
The Unique Benefits of Regular Hot Tub Use
Once you start using your hot tub on a regular basis, you’ll notice the difference if you have to skip a day or two. When you soak in your hot tub once in a while, you’ll feel immediate physical and mental relaxation, but when you soak daily as part of a normal routine, you’ll experience:
- Lasting tension and stress relief and respite from pain
- Better quality sleep
- A reduction in joint inflammation and enhanced mobility
A daily hot tub soak is a positive habit you can incorporate into your healthy lifestyle. And, doing so can encourage even more healthy habits in your day, especially considering the many wellness benefits your spa provides.
