This article also states another benefit of regular hot tub use: improved sleep. According to the article, using a hot tub an hour or two before bed heats the body and then, upon exiting the water, it stimulates the body’s natural cooling process that it goes through when falling asleep.

If you’re feeling tense, stressed, irritable, or your mind simply won’t stop racing, a nice soak in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub could be just the thing to ease your mind. This same article states that warm water can help “temporarily calm the nervous system and soothe our senses, which helps reduce stress and promote relaxation.”

Schedule time for your passions.

Set aside time for hobbies.
