Holiday Stress Getting You Down? Solution: Make Time for Your Hot Tub

December 20, 2010

Holidays stress getting you down? Stress builds up when you feel you’re too busy, don’t have enough leisure time to relax and unwind, or enough “quality time” to reconnect with family and friends.

These feelings can certainly be exaggerated during the holidays. How to cope? Make time to use your Hot Spring Spa for quality time, improved health, stress reduction and rejuvenation this holiday season. Here are some tips to inspire you to use  your hot tub more often:

Romantic Getaway
Leave a note for your loved one suggesting a rendezvous after your hot tub! Light candles, play some quiet music and enjoy each others company alone under the stars in the privacy of your own backyard.

Family Retreat
PTA meetings, soccer games and ballet lessons…can’t seem to spend enough time together as a family? Arrange for a “meeting” in your hot tub-it’s the perfect place to reconnect and talk about the day. Children grow up before you know it. Spending some time with your teenager in the spa can open up long closed lines of communication many Hot Spring Spa owing parents say.

Star Gazing Haven
Your outdoor spa provides the perfect front-row seat under the stars. Don’t waste a clear night in Puget Sound this winter when you could be watching the constellations. Get the Star Walk app for your i-phone and you’ll find get to know every star in the heavens. Go to the Stardate website to see what’s in the night sky week by week.

Workout Therapy Center
Warm water exercise is a gentle way to exercise joints and muscles. The buoyancy of the water reduces body weight by 90% relieving pressure on joints and muscles (perfect for people affected by arthritis or fibromyalgia). Water also serves as resistance to help build muscle strength.

Wake-up Call
Enjoy your spa in the morning with a cup of tea or coffee. Just 10 minutes at 102°F will energize you. Stay in longer and you may start to feel too relaxed to “get up and go”.  Many spa owners prefer winter wake ups in the spa to ease gently into their day. They report that watching the birds and enjoying a short “nature break” before beginning their hectic schedules makes them feel better all day.

Your Space for Solitude
Being alone to think and regain your emotional equilibrium is the best antidote to holiday stress. Your spa is the perfect place to relax, “do nothing” and get away from it all.

Greet the New Year
Where will you be when the clock strikes midnight? The #1 answer for Olympic Hot Tub owners is in their spa in their own backyard. Soak in heavenly peace and quiet in your own HOT SPRING SPA. Contemplate the year ahead as you compose your resolutions.
