Reasons to Use Your Hot Tub or Swim Spa in the Winter
No one knows winter quite like Canadians do, especially those of us who are from Saskatchewan. There may be snow on the ground and the temperature might be -20°, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to enjoy your hot tub or swim spa.
In fact, some of the best hot tub dips are when the temperature outside dips below freezing. There’s nothing quite like relaxing in heated water while breathing in the fresh, clean winter air. And, as long as you remember to wear a warm winter hat and have a thick robe on hand for your dash back to the house, there’s minimal risk of catching a chill.
Let’s take a look at the top four reasons to make your spa part of your winter routine.
It Can Boost Your Immunity
With cold and flu season in full swing, it’s important to do everything you can to stay healthy this winter. While your swim spa nor your hot tub cannot replace getting a flu shot, it can certainly play a big role in making your immune system more robust.
It all starts with the heated water of your spa. As your body relaxes and the temperature warms and quickens your blood, this increased circulation boosts your white blood cell production. White blood cells are the key to health and, when they are carried through the bloodstream, they actively attack any germs or toxins that are present in your body.
It Relieves Stress and Pain
Winter can offer lots of fun from sledding with the kids to going cross-country skiing, but it also brings with it brutal blizzards and dangerous roads. And nothing is more stressful than trying to shovel out your driveway to get to work on time or, worse, trying to drive home in a whiteout. Not only does dealing with this type of scenario raise your blood pressure, but it takes a toll on your body too.
Your hot tub or swim spa is a great cure for winter’s ails. The warmth of the water combined with jet massage can melt away tension and stress while relaxing your muscles. The wet heat, especially when paired with massage, will also soothe sore muscles and even spasms brought on by too much shoveling.
It Offers a Relaxing Way to Warm Up
If you’ve spent the day outdoors, whether tobogganing with the kids or hitting the snowmobile trails with friends, nothing feels better than a relaxing soak in the spa at the end of the day.
Not only will it warm your body, but it can also prevent you from feeling sore the next day. By relaxing your muscles with heat and massage immediately after your outside activities, you can get rid of tension and muscle strain before they have time to morph into something more painful.
It’s a Great Way to Reconnect
Winter can be a very busy time from holiday preparations to helping out at the kids’ school to hockey tournaments. Combine that with a hectic work schedule and routine chores, it can be very hard to fit in quality time with the family.
By scheduling a weekly dip in the hot tub together, you’ll be able to reconnect with one another while relaxing and enjoying a soothing massage. It’s the perfect way to catch up and stay connected.
