You’re probably thinking to yourself “Wait, you mean people are actually able to relax?!”. When people talk about relaxation, it often seems like a distant fantasy you’ll never be able to grasp due to life’s busy schedule. In fact, you might even get stressed just thinking about when to find the time to relax. However, daily relaxation is one of the healthiest things for your body both mentally and physically and needs to be incorporated daily.
Relaxation means to calm down; to let go of all your daily worries, stresses, and tension in your body. It’s important to indulge in some well deserved “me time”. In fact, the Mayo Clinic conducted research that significantly validates that relaxation needs to be on everyone’s list of priorities.
Why It’s So Important to Take Time to Relax
Relaxing helps keep your stress levels in check. A small amount of stress is perfectly fine because it can keep you motivated and determined. But stress becomes unhealthy when it starts to have a negative impact on your every day life. When that happens, it’s time to take steps to get your stress levels under control.With stress under control by taking time to relax, you’ll start to sleep better and feel better! It’s no secret that a good night’s sleep is vital to a healthy lifestyle. A good night’s sleep ensures that your body and mind will be functioning in tip-top shape.
Relaxation also plays a role in letting you achieve a clear and calm mind, allowing your thought process to be more positive and improving your mood. Relaxation also increases blood flow to the muscles which provides the body with more energy, a better metabolism, and improves memory and concentration.
Relaxing will also help reduce the chance of physical illnesses in the long run. Being stressed for long periods of time puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the body, especially the heart. Being in a state of relaxation actually slows the heart rate which in return gives the heart some much-needed rest. This is important because it will help avoid potential risks to the heart like hypertension, stroke, and others.
How Hot Tubs Help You Relax
Did you know one of the top reasons our customers want a hot tub is for relaxation?! It makes perfect sense too, because hot tubs are built with relaxation and wellness in mind to help relieve stress from head to toe. How is warm water able to affect your body so much? When your body is immersed in warm water, the buoyancy of water takes some of the gravitational pressure off of your body. In return, this allows you to relax more deeply.
Another perk is that a hot tub will improve your body’s circulation and the production of positive endorphins in your body. The increased production of endorphins is vital because it helps reduce pain and anxiety, thus helping you relieve stress and overall feel much better. Lastly, strategically placed jets throughout the spa are designed specifically to target and relieve the most stress-prone areas of your body. Not only does the pressure from the hot tub feel great at the moment, but you will also feel a significant decrease in stress long after you exit the warm water as well.
