With a little bit of planning, you can make your hot tub an integral part of your wellness routine. Here are a few tips for how to weave in daily hot tub soaks seamlessly over the long term:

  • Begin or end your day immersed in your spa. When you make time for a 15-minute soak in the morning, you'll emerge feeling energized, positive, and ready for the day. Creating a routine for a 15-minute soak before bed can help wind down your body and mind and promote restful sleep. Routine soaks will ensure you don't miss out on your spa's powerful wellness benefits.
  • Soak before or after exercise. A 15-minute soak before working out can help loosen your muscles and promote better blood flow. A 15-minute soak following exercise can promote relaxation and the recovery process. If you make time to soak before and after exercise, you'll experience the incredible benefits on both sides.
  • Choose a high-quality spa with a reputation for durability, reliability, easy maintenance, and continuous dealer support. With these assurances, you'll easily sustain your soaking routine and reap the wonderful lifestyle benefits that a home spa provides.
