Be like a Brit! Owning a hot tub means you’ve made it

December 18, 2018 – I’ve been to England several times over the years. I love it. I hope to get a chance to pop back over there this next year. Now, it seems like there’s yet another reason for me to love the Brits!

The results of a recent survey were released with the top things that, according to Brits, are the signs that you’re doing right enough in life and have “made it”.  Guess what one of the top things on the list is…? Yes! Owning your own hot tub.

Hot tub ownership has been on the rise in the U.K. since 2013. When I first started in this industry, folks in England thought that having a “garden spa” (the British way to reference a hot tub!) was just bizarre. Why would you tramp outdoors in the gray damp days and nights in England to sit in hot water? Well, the days of that thinking are long behind them. Just as us in the U.S. realized, hot tubbing is one of the very best ways to enhance your health and wellness every single day.

In case you’re curious, here are some of the other items on the British “I’ve made it!” list:

  • Having a cleaner
  • Weekly massage
  • Owning a home
  • Flying business class
  • Having a gardener
  • Always having champagne in the fridge
  • Being able to retire early
  • Sending your kids to private school

If you’re not a hot tub owner yet, be like a Brit and get one! You’ll find it’s a wonderful way to give back to yourself every single day.
