How Your Hot Tub Can Improve The Quality Of Your Sleep

Ringing in the New Year means getting back to taking better care of yourself! We’ve all set goals to achieve a healthier lifestyle in 2020. Getting the appropriate amount of sleep directly correlates with your mental and physical health day by day.

Did you know just before we sleep, there is normally a drop in our body temperature? So, if that is the case – how can soaking in your hot tub help you get a better night’s sleep?

For one, a nice calming soak helps you relax mentally, letting your mind wind down after the day. Secondly, the water’s buoyancy helps decompress your joints increasing your circulation while your blood pressure and heart rate decrease, easing your body into a resting state.

After your soak, you can better maintain that sense of calm and relaxation that naturally helps you fall asleep. And as you do, your core body temperature begins to drop as you cool down, signaling to your body that it’s time to sleep. It’s that simple!

Lack of sleep can leave you feeling anxious, depressed and can lead to mood swings. Because sleep researchers believe that insomnia can be traced to demanding, stressful lifestyles, relaxing in a spa regularly can help combat these stressors.

By taking a 15-minute soak in a hot tub about an hour and a half before you head to bed, your body temperature can drop enough to give you a better night’s sleep naturally. The added bonus is that you won’t wake up feeling groggy from using prescription sleep remedies.

So, while you are working on a better you while we kickstart the new year, don’t forget that sleep will help aid in achieving your goals. Of course, there’s a disclaimer that comes with nearly any piece of advice: Individual results may vary.
