How do you start your day? Is it with a morning jog or cup of coffee? Hot tub owners have a big secret you may want in on, they start their mornings with a good soak. For many, this can seem like a before-bed activity, but there are many reasons why a morning soak can actually lead to super productive days.
In this article, you will learn why a morning soak could be your new favourite way to wake up.
Starting Your Day Right
Why do we love Sunday mornings? Aside from being able to sleep in, we usually start our morning with a delicious breakfast, some time with our loved ones, and taking a big breath. During the week, it often feels like our day starts when our morning does. With a hot tub, put your day on pause first thing in the morning and use that time to wake up and plan your day. Some people do that by hitting to gym right when they wake up, but did you know taking a soak can provide you with the same benefits? A hot tub’s high temperature increases blood circulation. As a result, our hearts work faster giving you a light exercise. Try this before you work out to loosen up muscles or replace a workout with a soak a couple of times a week. You will quickly feel the difference.
If you do not wake up for a morning workout, then a quick hot tub soak can help give you the boost you need or allow you to do some light exercise in the morning. Hot tubs are small enough to fit in most places but large enough for you to exercise with aquacise or aqua yoga. These exercises are loved by those who are looking for low impact due to joint complications. As a bonus, it can help improve strength and flexibility. This is due to the buoyancy in our body created by the water. Finally, a relaxing way to work out!
It is also suggested this is a very beneficial way to work out for those suffering from sciatica, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or those who have just recently had surgery.
Waking up just 10 minutes earlier to enjoy a soak can drastically change your entire day, but one of the greatest ways is helping you to mentally prepare for the day. We have all had those terrible mornings where not only are we running late, but everything seems to be going wrong. Starting your day with a soak to think about what you need to do for the day and how to prepare can lead to more productive days, and even more productive weeks!
Spending some time in the hot tub has also been shown to help reduce anxiety in some individuals. Starting your day off by reducing anxiety, thus increasing your confidence, can make sure you are having great mornings leading to great days.
As mentioned, many of us start our day with a cup of coffee and keep drinking it until we feel that caffeine rush. But did you know adding coffee with a hot tub soak can actually help increase the effects of coffee? The warm water increases blood circulation and heart rate, which allows for caffeine to travel to your brain much faster!
