How a Hot Tub Can Improve Your Sleep

Everyone knows that a good night’s sleep is essential to living a happy and healthy life. We also know that as important as sleep is, it’s not always the easiest thing for some people to do. Owning a hot tub is the perfect way to help get your sleep schedule back on track and to help you feel better than ever!

Getting A Deeper Sleep

The National Sleep Foundation said “soaking in hot water before retiring to bed can ease the transition into deeper sleep…” Soaking in a hot tub prior to going to bed allows you to fall asleep much more naturally, as opposed to taking sleep aid prescriptions or over the counter sleep aids.

Studies also suggest that soaking in hot water before going to bed can ease the transition into a much more restful sleep. This is due to a temperature shift, since the body’s internal thermostat drops after leaving the water. This signals the body that it’s time to sleep. The sleep improvement may also be related to the relaxed state hot water provides to your body. For instance, the buoyancy of water reduces body weight by 90%, relieving pressure on joints and muscles. This creates the sensation of weightlessness. The hot, swirling water also leaves you feeling both mentally and emotionally relaxed.
