Hot Tub To Celebrate National Relaxation Day

August 16, 2011

Did you know it’s not only fun to soak in your hot tub, but it can be vital to a healthy lifestyle? Life is stressful! Have you seen the news lately? It’s enough to send you right back to bed some mornings.

Too, there are always so many things to do and never enough hours in the day. We prioritize and compartmentalize and organize and we try to squeeze each and every minute of the day to its fullest.

So take a minute. Pause. Stop what you’re doing and consider: Why do we need a National Relaxation Day? Because we’re all doing too much!

Our bodies and minds need time to rest. Without recovery from the day’s events, we can’t feel energized and ready for a new day.

I can just hear the workaholics among us saying, “But it’s slacking off!.”  Ignore their whining! It’s the only way to be more productive.

When you take a reasonable amount of time for rest and relaxation, you can come back with more gusto and verve. When you push yourself too hard, you tempt the “burnout demon”. You lack energy and joy in life.  And, worst of all you won’t be as productive.

So sit back and relax. Take that soak in your Hot Spring Spa and honor National Relaxation Day-August 15th. One suggestion for celebration this day every day: pencil in “Hot Tub Time” in your day planner for every day through the end of the year. A daily soak not only brightens your mood it’ll make you more productive!
