Today is World Health Day
April 7th, 2023 – Today, April 7th, is World Health Day. This day of recognition is held to mark the founding of the World Health Organization in 1948—75 years ago! It’s used as an opportunity to draw worldwide attention to the journey of better health for all. And of course, we at Olympic think it’s the ideal time to point out how terrific regular hot tub sessions can be! Hot tub soaking can be an excellent way to not only relax, but also improve your overall health.
Soaking in a hot tub has numerous physical and mental health benefits. From pain relief to improving the quality of your sleep, hot tubs can help create balance in the body. The relaxing effect of warm water and buoyancy can be especially helpful for those suffering from muscle aches and pain from sports or exercise-related injuries. The combination of hydromassage and heat helps reduce inflammation which can alleviate discomfort.
Regular hot tub soaks have also been connected to improved circulation, helping the body better absorb nutrients for improved energy and higher immunity.
The psychological effects of soaking in a hot tub are equally powerful! A 20-minute soak has been found to reduce stress levels and will help promote feelings of calm and relaxation. Studies have shown that lower cortisol levels (the hormone that helps regulate stress) can lead to renewed focus and concentration. That allows us to stay more productive throughout the day! Who doesn’t need that? And, if you’re one of those people who struggles with sleep (like me)? Regular hot tub soaks have been found to improve sleep quality, due to the calming effects it has on both body and mind.
At Olympic, we’re passionate about wellness through water. We believe in offering smart solutions designed to enhance your overall health and well-being. That’s why we sell Hot Spring Spas, high quality tubs specifically designed with your comfort in mind. Hot Spring just unveiled their new 2023 Highlife Collection. With new jetting, improved seating, and the ability to soak in the healthiest water, thanks to the FreshWater Salt System, you’re bound to find the perfect answer for your everyday soak.
Celebrate World Health Day this year by incorporating regular hot tub sessions into your daily routine. Your body will thank you!
