Good news, America! While everybody in the country is still stressed out, stress levels have dipped recently.
Why the good fortune on the stress front? Probably because of the strong economy and people focusing on themselves more thanks to less financial pressure.
Could you use less stress and personal focus in your life? If you answered “yes”, we recommend buying a hot tub.
Sure, buying a hot tub might seem like one of those things that you do when you lack fiscal responsibility or have serious trouble keeping your priorities in order.
The truth is though that hot tubs bring a ton of health and social benefits with them that are worth their weight in gold.
Here are a few reasons why buying one is a great idea!
1. You Can Enjoy Them Year-Round
Pools cost tens of thousands of dollars. They’re a ton of fun, of course, and the social benefits that they bring may be worth the money but when you consider how often you can use them, are pools really a good value?
That’s a question that only you can answer but we’re proud to say that when buying a hot tub, seasonal weather isn’t something that you’ll ever have to consider!
Hot tubs make for a wonderful place to hang out during a summer evening or a winter night.
As a matter of fact, you haven’t lived until you’ve sat in a hot tub while snow fell around you.
2. Hot Tubs Help With Sleep Issues
If you have trouble getting to sleep at night you’re not alone. 60 million Americans struggle with at least a mild form of insomnia which can wreak havoc on their relationships, job performance, and other aspects of their lives.
Before you reach for the sleeping pills, consider picking up a hot tub instead and taking a fifteen-minute dip before bed.
Warm water’s ability to relax tense muscles and induce feelings of calm can have a massive positive impact on your ability to head to bed and shut down for the night.
3. It Beats Sitting in the Tub
You might be thinking to yourself that you can enjoy the same benefits of a hot tub by filling your bathtub with hot water and sitting in it.
First off, being massaged by jets and having space to actually move as you’re relaxing makes the hot tub experience much more fulfilling than the bathtub experience.
Beyond that, hot tubs reuse filtered water. That means once you fill them, you can enjoy the same water for a long time before having to switch it out.
Compare that to the fact that bathtubs need to be drained between uses and you’ll quickly see that using your bathtub as a hot tub is not only going to run up your water bill but it’s also bad for the environment.
4. A Vacation in Your Backyard
With a hot tub in your backyard, you may find that you take a lot more staycations and fewer vacations.
At the very least, you’ll find yourself less likely to go out on a Friday or Saturday night due to at-home boredom.
All of those staying-in savings will add up which could cover the cost of your hot tub!
5. Help With Rehabilitation From Injuries
A torn ACL, damaged shoulder cuffs, bad knees… These are all medical issues that people all over the country face and need to partake in years of rehab to get managed.
While hot tubs aren’t a unilateral rehab solution, their ability to help relieve muscle stress and bring down pain can be a helpful addition to a rehab routine.
6. Affordable, Resistance-Free Exercise
Piggybacking on the idea of rehab, a lot of people that are either recovering from injuries or just have sensitive joints love working out in pools.
Why? Because it provides them with a way to exercise without their joints or other sensitive areas incurring strain.
Since buying a pool to exercise in may be out of reach for a number of people, hot tubs are the next best thing (in our opinion, they’re even better).
You could buy a spacious hot tub, turn on the jets and do several exercises including stretches, squats, torso crunches and leg kicks.
7. You Can Find Outstanding Deals
You don’t need to pawn your Golden Retriever to enjoy all of the hot tub health benefits and social benefits that we’ve discussed.
There are a number of online sellers that have low overhead and sell tubs for cheap.
Most of them offer financing options that may enable you to get a hot tub into your backyard for around $100.00 per month.
When you consider that low barrier of entry, it’s no wonder why more people don’t hop on the hot tub bandwagon and start upgrading their lives!
Buying a Hot Tub Means Buying a New Lifestyle
Hot tubs are so much more than just pools filled with hot water. They’re lifestyle upgrades.
Whether it’s you upgrading your health, your bank account or your social prominence with all of the hosting that you’ll be doing, after buying a hot tub, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without owning one.
