It’s been a rough year. Okay, let’s be honest, it’s been more like a rough two years at least, and there doesn’t really seem to be much of a light at the end of the tunnel yet. Don’t make the mistake of telling yourself you’ll relax at some point in the future. Take advantage of your hot tub now and spend some quality time on yourself by taking a good, long, relaxing soak that caters to your senses.
There’s something undeniably relaxing about the sound of moving water. That’s easy to come by when you spend some time soaking in your hot tub. Take your relaxation to the next level by playing some of your favorite relaxing music. Alternatively, if your hot tub is located outside, you can quiet yourself, close your eyes, and take in the sounds around you. Focus on what you can hear. Things like the wind blowing, rain falling, rustling leaves, or ocean waves can all provide a wonderfully relaxing backdrop for your soak.
Our sense of smell is closely tied to our memories and moods. You can take advantage of that by indulging in some aromatherapy while you relax in your hot tub. Essential oils are pretty well known for their various effects. Take lavender oil for example. It’s one of the best known essential oils and is commonly used for its relaxing effects. That’s not the only relaxing oil out there though. Oils like chamomile, orange, sandalwood, and clary sage can all help you feel more relaxed and less stressed. Try them on their own or in a blend.
Arguably the sense that is most heavily involved in soaking in a hot tub is that of touch. Most of your body will be constantly in contact with something, whether it’s the surfaces of the hot tub or the water inside it. To make the experience as relaxing as possible, make sure your hot tub has everything you need to comfortably enjoy the experience. Most people find that a water temperature between 98-104 degrees Fahrenheit is perfect for relaxing.
You got your hot tub so you could relax and enjoy yourself. Don’t you deserve a treat after the way life has been for the last while? Indulging your senses by soaking in your hot tub is the perfect way to enjoy the winter season. When you get out, you’ll be that much more mentally prepared to take on the world.
