For those who are new to the hot tubbing world, all sorts of questions begin to appear. One question that’s often heard asked by those who are concerned about the amount of use their hot tub will get is, “Is it OK to hot tub every day?” It’s a valid concern because nobody wants to invest a whole bunch of money into something that has limited use. However, it’s completely OK to use a hot tub every day. In fact, many of the benefits of a hot tub only become apparent when it’s used on a regular basis. To make sure you get the most use out of your hot tub we’ve come up with a post on what you can do to ensure your hot tub use remains consistent.
Planning for Using Your Hot Tub Everyday
How you plan to use your hot tub will play a role in dictating how often you use it. For those who hope to use their hot tub for therapeutic purposes such as pain relief, increased mobility or creating better sleep patterns, daily use will be the best way to experience actual results. By creating a routine that gets you into the hot tub every day, your body will begin to feel the benefits which will create a positive feedback loop of regular and consistent soaking. Ensure you begin to see positive results by diligently requiring yourself to have a daily soak until it becomes a natural habit.
If you’re buying a hot tub to enhance your relationship with your family and friends, you’ll need to get everyone to buy into a consistent schedule. Taking into account everyone’s busy lives will be essential to making this happen, but if you’re successful you’ll see your relationships flourish.
Reducing Barriers to Everyday Hot Tub Use
Much of the time, regularly using your hot tub can be as much of a physical battle as it is mental.
If it’s freezing cold outside, it may be tough to convince yourself that the walk to the hot tub will be worth your while. But by creating a pleasant environment with outdoor heaters, windbreakers and an ice and snow-free footpath you’ll reduce the resistance to facing the cold. Similarly, if your hot tub is overlooked by all your surrounding neighbors, you may find your time spent soaking and getting in and out of the tub is rather uncomfortable. Creating some privacy for you and your family can increase the frequency in which you use your tub.
Keeping your hot tub clean and the water fresh is a huge part of owning a hot tub. That said, with today’s technology it’s possible to automate many of these processes. By reducing the amount of labor needed to keep your hot tub clean and fresh you’ll find yourself using it more often. Cleaning and maintaining routines won’t be such a terrible burden if you invest in a self-cleaning system.
Buying a hot tub that meets the wants and needs of you and your family will get much more use than simply buying the cheapest model on the market. If deep massage is important to you, invest wisely in water jets that will do the job properly. If creating a relaxing, stress-busting environment is high on your priority list, spending some money on mood lighting and a good sound system will encourage you to get your bathing suit on. Honestly assess how you envision your ideal hot tub and buy appropriately.
