How do you start your day? With a cup of coffee? Maybe you read the news to help wake you up. You may be surprised to learn that many people start their day with a morning soak in their personal hot tub. While the idea alone may make you feel sleepy, many people find it is the perfect way to wake up in the morning and begin their day.
In the following article, we discuss how waking up to a morning soak can be both beneficial and another great way to utilize your tub.
Starting Your Day Right
Many people begin their day with a relaxing or enjoyable activity to start their day off with the right good. This helps fight that feeling of being tired, grumpy, and groggy, a common feeling for many in the morning. For too many of us, those feelings are carried with us throughout the day and go to bed with us. However, by starting your day with a quick soak after waking up you will be overcome with a sense of feeling both energy and relaxation. Another common morning ritual for people is hitting the gym first thing in the morning. Even those individuals could benefit from a soak. When lounging in those high temperatures you will experience an increase in blood circulation causing your heart to work faster. In other words, it’s a light exercise. The soak will help loosen muscles in preparation for a great workout.
For those who don’t have the time or the physical capabilities to start their morning with a jog or visit to the gym, a hot tub can provide some similar benefits to a quick morning workout. In hot tubs, you can perform aquacise or aqua yoga in the comfort of your home. Water exercise is favorable for many individuals due to the low impact it has on your body. This can be very helpful for those with joint problems or be looking to build strength and improve flexibility. Water provides an environment where you can feel weightless allowing an increased range of motion where your muscles feel completely relaxed.
This method of exercising can be especially beneficial for people suffering from fibromyalgia, sciatica, arthritis, or post-surgery.
Whether it happens occasionally or every day, we all have those days when we are rushing to get out the door, with our brains going a million miles a minute. Starting your mornings with this routine often do not lead to good or productive days. Rather than starting off rushed, start your day with a ten minute morning soak. Take that time to relax in your hot tub while you mentally prepare for your day. Visualize the tasks you need to get done and organize your day. Then when you are heading off to start your day, you will feel overcome with calm and confidence to tackle your day.
Those who start their morning with a quick soak have found themselves feeling better and it helps manage any anxiety they may feel. While it may not always be obvious, a lot of our anxiety can be caused by our body’s physical state. When you start your day with a morning soak, it will ensure you start your day off right.
Lastly, if you love coffee and are looking for another reason to love hot tubs, here it is. When you take a soak in the hot tub, the water is going to increase your circulation and heart rate forcing the caffeine to travel to your brain quicker!
