Many people view the hot tub as a place to relax and relieve stress at the end of the day, but you will find a lot of benefits if you choose to use the hot tub as part of your morning routine. Just like planning a shower or bath, if you time everything correctly, you can easily implement a hot tub soak into your morning.
Consider the benefits of the morning hot tub use and how to make the most out of a new hot tub installation.
1. Muscle Treatments
Imagine waking up every day to a full-body massage. The relaxing feeling and relief on your body is exactly what a jetted hot tub can supply in the morning. Full body jets will massage and work the muscles out on your body. You will not only relax your muscles but help improve the blood circulation in your body.
The increase in blood circulation will feel like a small workout and help you feel energized and refreshed for the day. As you plan your hot tub morning routine, you can use jets to focus on specific areas. For example, if you work long shifts on your feet, focus on jets that massage and treat the heels and arch. You will help alleviate pains throughout the day.
2. Aquatic Yoga
While you cannot do laps inside of a hot tub, the open space allows you to perform a lot of aquatic yoga moves. Stretch your body, work on muscles, and perform various poses inside the hot tub.
When you perform yoga moves in the water, you put less pressure on your body and will help prevent muscle strains. You will complete the exercise in the morning without aches for the rest of the day.
As you get used to the hot tub space, you will learn how to use the different curves and areas of a hot tub to perform your aquatic yoga. Some hot tubs feature built-in speakers or Bluetooth connections to allow you to listen to instructional tutorials on aquatic yoga. The instructions will help you follow the routine for a set amount of time.
3. Aromatherapy Treatments
Not only does hot water relax your body in the water, but you can combine the heated water with aromatherapy treatments to improve your morning routine. While general essential oils should not be placed inside your hot tub, several companies manufacture oils and scents made specifically for hot tub use.
For example, if you woke up feeling run down like you had a cold, then scents like eucalyptus and pine fir could help clear sinuses and allow you to feel better throughout the day. A scent like peppermint could give you a boost of energy and help you get excited for the day.
Once you choose a scent, the smell will remain in the water for several days before wearing off, especially if you often cover up the hot tub. Choose weekly themes to test out different scents and find the best combination for your morning routine.
4. Mental Preparation
Mornings can often be filled with a lot of stress and hassle as you prepare for work or children get ready for school. Even just a fifteen-minute dip into a hot tub will supply you with some mental preparation for the day. Use the ten minutes to relax and enjoy the silence.
If you meditate, a hot tub offers an ideal place to relax and gather your thoughts together. The mental preparation could become something you look forward to each morning and will help ease your mind and eliminate a lot of other distractions.
