Everyone seems to have hooked onto the Hot Tub trend since the pandemic days, and who can blame them. There’s something fun, decadent and exciting about having hot tub benefits just outside in your backyard.

There’s more to a Hot Tub than just a cute addition to your garden though. It’s a great way to improve the value of your home as well as looking after your own wellbeing and mental health.

You can improve the saleability of your home and your wellbeing when you buy a hot tub

Relaxation Benefits

Hot tubs are a fantastic place to relax and unwind after a long, busy day. Taking the time to de-stress together with family or your partner is a great way to connect, improve relationships and let go of your stressful day.

It’s a perfect way to unwind and leave behind the technological world, including our phones and actually spend time ‘in the moment’ – a mindfulness technique that’s proven to improve mental health over time.

Sensory Wellbeing

Many of us enjoy the sensory experience of sitting in warm, bubbling water. We love the feel on our skins, the warmth in our bodies and experience real joy at the sensations.

Experiencing this can lower our cortisol levels, improve our mental health, and help us relax and unwind after a stressful day. Sharing this with others can heighten the experience, but there’s nothing wrong if you enjoy the sensory wellbeing of a hot tub on your own.

Lighting for Wellness

Adding lights to our backyard, garden, decking and hot tub surround area can really add atmosphere to the space.

It doesn’t have to be a complicated or expensive job either as solar powered lights are excellent for creating ambience and low level lighting to a hot tub area.

There’s also a practical element to adding lights around your hot tub – and safety must always come first. Think about layering your lights from those in the pavement, to the fencing, overhead strings lights and even lanterns in the trees. Adding different types and hues in our lighting can really enhance the hot tub experience.  

Hydrotherapy Benefits

There are lots of physical benefits to a hot tub, particularly those with jets and bubbling water.

They’re a great way to loosen tight and sore muscles, particularly if you’ve been exercising a lot or feel tension from stress. The buoyancy of the water can help relieve muscles, arthritic pain and other joint related conditions.

If you’re a poor sleeper and experience insomnia, you may also find that regular sessions in your backyard hot tub will alleviate the symptoms and help you feel more relaxed and sleep more easily.

Socialising with Family and Friends

A hot tub is also a great way to have fun with family and friends. Why not make an event of it and host a hot tub party? Invited friends round on a warm summer’s evening to enjoy some time together in the hot tub.

Serve drinks and food, keep it safe or course, and enjoy spending time with friends and family – it’s a great way to boost your wellbeing.
