Today is Look Up at the Sky Day!
April 11th, 2023 – You probably didn’t even realize this was a thing, but today is Look Up at the Sky Day! This day was designed to help us dedicate a moment to appreciate the beauty of the sky above us. We often get caught up in our busy lives and forget to stop and appreciate the natural world in which we live. Today is the perfect day to take a break from the chaos and simply look up.
Guess what I think is one of the best ways to take in the stunning view of the sky? By relaxing in a hot tub. (Big surprise, right?) Just imagine sinking into the warm water, feeling the jets provide some much-needed massage, and gazing up at the sky above. Whether it’s during the day or at night, the hot tub is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of the heavens.
During the day, you can watch clouds drift by, birds soaring above, and perhaps even catch a glimpse of a rainbow. The sky is ever-changing, and each moment offers a new and unique view. My townhome is in a flight path, so I get a chance to see plenty of planes overhead. I thought that was going to be a nuisance, but for me the drone of a plane flying overhead is almost a meditative sound. Go figure!
At night, the hot tub offers an entirely different experience. The dark sky is a canvas of stars. I live in the city, and I thought it would be difficult to see many stars when I soak. I’m happy to say I was wrong. It’s terrific to gaze up during my time in the tub and get lost in the night sky. The hot tub warms you from the inside out, while the sky above takes your breath away. I also enjoy tracking the spot the moon resides in the heavens each night.
Taking a dip in a hot tub has so many great physical and mental health benefits. Soaking in warm water can ease muscle tension, reduce stress, and improve sleep. I try to take a soak about an hour before bed whenever I can. It has made a huge difference! When combined with the meditative properties of looking up at the sky, it’s the perfect combination for unwinding and rejuvenating your mind and body.
Look Up at the Sky Day is an excellent reminder to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and appreciate the natural beauty around us. And what better way to do so than from the comfort of a hot tub? Hop in your tub, relax, and take the time to look up and soak in the beauty of the sky above.
I think we’d all be much happier if Look Up at the Sky Day was every day!
