Can portable hot tubs really help you get better sleep? Losing sleep is becoming a major factor in not only the health and vitality of many Americans, but it also has an effect on safety and job performance. In this article we are going to take a look at how using a portable hot tub in the evening can help you get a better night’s sleep and have a positive impact on your overall health and well-being.
Everyone knows that relaxing in a hot tub can be lots of fun. After a hard workout in the gym, or a long, stressful day at the office, it seems like all of your troubles melt away as your body sinks down into the warm, welcoming water and the jets begin to work their magic on your tired, sore muscles. Even the sound of the burbling water and the cool, evening air seem to dissolve all worries and cares and send them far away from your attention as you close your eyes and sink into the luxurious feeling of being pampered.
If your sleep problems are related to your stressful lifestyle, it can be helpful to think about establishing a relaxing bedtime routine that helps create a separation between the over-stimulation of the day’s activities, and the time for relaxation and rest in the evening.
Rather than allowing all of those obligations, worries and responsibilities to swirl around in your mind causing you anxiety, make it a habit to write down those hanging tasks that are leftover from the day that must be completed tomorrow. Writing them down captures them and lets your mind release them so that you can focus on your home life and give your family or your partner your attention.
Losing sleep can also have a negative impact on your health. If you are overweight and have poor sleep habits, the lack of sleep can be a contributing factor. In a study published in the February 2010 edition of Sleep, the researchers showed a connection between lack of sleep and weight gain can be traced to the secretion of the hormones ghrelin and leptin, which govern feelings of hunger and the feeling of being full. When the balance of these hormones is disrupted, as can occur when we don't get enough sleep or when we have erratic sleep habits, we sometimes develop the tendency to eat more and feel less full.
Using portable hot tubs as part of your evening relaxation routine can help you solve the problem of losing sleep. Make the time to relax in your hot tub spa in the evening so that you can allow the warm water and the massaging jets do their thing to lower your blood pressure and induce a state of relaxation in your body and your mind.
Based on everything presented here I think it is safe to say that portable hot tubs can in fact help you get a better night’s sleep. Making an effort to let go of the worries and cares of the day by relaxing in the warm water of your own portable hot tub will help you get the rest you need.
