The great thing about hot tubs is that everyone can enjoy them – whether you’re old or young, anyone can find an escape, relaxation, and pure happiness in the swirling warm water with massaging jets. Ahhhhhhh!
That said, there are certain hot tub activities that are approved and others that are nothing but trouble; the list of “hot tub dos and don’ts below is both your guide to bathing bliss and a warning against, well, stupidity.
DO: Rest and Relax
The single most significant benefit to any hot tub is its ability to offer unparalleled rest and relaxation. Whether it’s stress, headaches or a lack of sleep, the warm water helps to release endorphins that naturally reduce stress and increase circulation. If ever you’re high-strung or simply feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders, DO soak in a hot tub and let the warm water wash away your worries.
DON’T: Fall on Your Face
If you’ve done too much relaxing in the warm waters, you might find that your muscles are so loose that they won’t work as fast as your brain would want them to. If your body is in a deep state of tranquility, mind your motor skills when getting out and DON’T fall on your face!
