For some reason we all strive for luxuries which involve water, whether this is because for hundreds of years our ancestors had to battle and search long and hard for water I couldn’t tell you. But we are all drawn to the water holidays lounging around the pool, spent on a boat or ferries, rafting on a river and so on are all popular.
Even things such as throwing coins down a wishing well show how as a universe we are all without really thinking about it drawn to water, yet there is one huge difference. Years ago we needed to cure out thirst quench however nowadays the aim is simply recreational. This is one of the huge reasons which have made the hot tub so popular.
In this article I intend to give you five more reasons in which I believe holds the reasoning behind why the hot tub has become such a popular piece of equipment in the modern era.
Big health benefits
This is probably the most pragmatic reason for the popularity of the hot tub as it provides great health benefits for your body. This is down to the fact that the built in jets and also the heat of the hot tub allow your body to relax, if you have had a hard days graft and your muscles are sore, or even after a big day of sport the hot tub will allow all your tight muscles to relax and recover appropriately.
The hot tub seems a big hit with people with illness’ such as arthritis and also joint problems, this is mainly because the hot tub allows them to soak their joints while engaging in social activity, however also the hydrotherapy experience through the hot tub improves circulations along with helping to loosen any stiff joints and muscles.
The social benefits
While in water for some reason people seem to seek social harmony and also expressions. Think even at work things such as the water cooler can be a place in which people indulge in conversation and can even be a reason for conversation.
Hot tubs allow people to relax while enjoying some time with friends to relax, and catch up on each other’s lives. Within the hot tube there seems to be something which allows conversations to be more relaxed and enjoyable than while sat dining or relaxing on the sofa, this is why the hot tub has become a must have for so many.
Hot tub provides better sleeping patterns
As a child and growing up you will have bathed on a night time, this is a routine that has been adopted worldwide. This is due to the soothing effect that the warm water has on children and also on adults too. In a hot tub the jets that are built in have created added relaxation elements, which in essence encourage relaxation before sleep.
As you probably know sleep is therapeutic in itself and the relaxation you will feel from a hot tub result in a better night’s sleep, which is the foundation for good health.
The hot tub is the right size
For all the above reasons and more our bodies are drawn to the water, and we love the benefits we receive from relaxing in warm water. And the hot tub is the right size! With a normal bath tub it is not always big enough, however having your own pool at home will probably be too big and expensive.
This will be due to the fact it will take a long time to clean and also the expense of so much water usage. With the hot tub being in the middle larger than a tub however smaller than a pool, this allows the chance for social relaxation. With not all of us graced with a garden big enough for a swimming pool you may still be lucky enough to fit a hot tub!
Looking back on days gone by such as holidays when we are young in which we first experienced the hot tub, maybe on your holiday where at some point we were indulged from the snow on a ski resort to the beauty of the hot tub and out again, and this could be a reason for loving the hot tub.
