A new year, a new you. It’s no surprise that one of the top New Year’s resolutions on any adult’s goal list is to become healthier. Whether it’s changing your diet or going to the gym with friends, there are countless ways to become healthy in 2019.

Did you know that becoming healthy is easier than ever with the health benefits of a hot tub? There are several health benefits of using a quality hot tub, so whether you’re a veteran or new owner of a home spa, we’re going to show you some health benefits that a hot tub can do for you in the new year.

Take Away Stress

When it comes to life, we are all accustomed to stress. Whether it’s from a life-changing event like having a baby, or just a long day at the office, stress is no stranger. Stress can take a toll on your health, so what better way to get rid of that stress than with a hot tub?

Tip: Soak for at least 30 minutes, leaving you with a clear mind and helping you sleep, by the time you go to bed.

Ease Aching Muscles

Did you know that in the winter our posture changes? During the winter time, our muscles take a beating. Many individuals experience sore muscles and aches from:

  • Slouching in sweaters or blankets
  • Shoveling snow
  • Heavy lifting
  • Standing in the cold for too long

A good soak in the hot tub is one of the health benefits of using a hot tub in winter. Soaking in a hot tub can soothe aching muscles or any discomfort, leaving you feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Improved Immune System

Cold and flu season, you’ve heard of it, and you try to avoid it at all costs. Your hot tub is a great way to do just that. When it comes to staying healthy in the new year,  a hot tub can:

  • Relieve congestion
  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce the chances of getting sick

How? When you are in a hot tub, your body’s temperature increases, killing any germs you may have acquired during the day.

Don’t forget: Your hot tub shouldn’t be over 100 degrees, ensuring you don’t overheat.
