Get ready for Festival of Sleep Day on January 3rd and keep your 2015 resolution to get a good night’s sleep every night.

Did you know that your hot tub can help you get the rest you need? After hot tubbing before bed, you’ll wake up refreshed, and you’ll get the health advantages of sufficient sleep.

Sleeplessness is a rising problem in the United States at the same time that researchers are regularly discovering more benefits of a full snooze. Relaxing in a hot tub can help ease your body into a deeper sleep that can mean the difference between staying asleep and waking at 3 a.m.

Scientists have found that sleep is essential to memory — your brain uses those hours to arrange memories so you can better recall key emotional moments. Besides making you feel awful, without a good night’s sleep, you can suffer hormone imbalances that make you crave higher-calorie foods – risking weight gain. People who skimp on sleep show elevated levels of inflammation, a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

“Good sleep equals good health,” says Dr. Stuart Quan of Harvard Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine in the January 2, 2011 Parade Magazine. And many people aren’t getting good sleep. A National Sleep Foundation found that about 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders more than one a night a week, and treating sleep disorders is a booming business – with some 3,000 centers in the country.

It’s a vicious cycle. Stress keeps you awake; sleep deprivation can lead to battered nerves, grogginess, lapses in memory, depression and even erratic mood swings.

Some people turn to drugs or other remedies, or blame their mattress, when a nice soak in your Hot Spring Spa would do the trick. The natural solution is a soak in your own Hot Spring Spa two or three hours before bedtime. Not only will you wash away the aches and pains of the day, but you’ll reset your body temperature for sleep. The buoyant hot makes you feel better inside and out, and the drop in your core temperature when you get out might signal your body that it’s time for sleep.

Celebrate Festival of Sleep Day with a power nap, a cat nap, or a long, lazy day on the sofa. Pregame with a soak in your Hot Spring Spa. Come take a FREE test soak in one of our Olympic Hot Tub showrooms and test the better sleep theory for yourself.
