Help Me Sleep: Your Hot Tub To The Rescue!

A bad night’s sleep can leave you groggy, unfocused, and unable to be your best self the next day. When insomnia continues for months or even years, what was once a mild inconvenience can become a debilitating condition. 

Millions Struggle With Sleep, Leading To Serious Consequences

Millions of Americans suffer from sleep loss, and many remedies exist to help them get the rest they need. While no solution is perfect for everyone, many hot tub owners enthusiastically report a short soak before bedtime is key to sound sleep.

Lack Of Sleep Is A Global Problem, Affecting Millions In The U.S.

If you search Google using the phrase “help me sleep,” you’ll find plenty of sleep tips and tricks from around the world. Lack of sleep is a big problem for some people, regardless of where they live. In the United States, the problem is serious. 

CDC Reports Over A Third Of U.S. Adults Don’t Get Enough Sleep

More than a third of American adults don’t get enough sleep regularly, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). While the percentage of adults who don’t sleep well varies based on location, ethnicity, employment, and marital status, no group is unaffected.

Sleep Deprivation Linked To Stress, Cognitive Decline, & More

When you don’t sleep enough, you’re not yourself and can’t quite get up to speed the following day. Chronic sleep loss — regularly sleeping less than the recommended amount for your age group over an extended period — can increase stress and cause cognitive decline. Driving while fatigued is dangerous. Working while tired can create safety issues in hazardous workplaces and costly errors even in relatively safe environments. Lack of sleep can also cause nervousness, depression, and/or mood swings.

Simple Habits Can Improve Sleep For Some

Many factors influence poor sleep, so for some sufferers, changing simple habits could help. According to Wayne Giles, M.D., Director of the CDC’s Division of Population Health, “Lifestyle changes such as going to bed at the same time each night; rising at the same time each morning; and turning off or removing televisions, computers, mobile devices from the bedroom, can help people get the healthy sleep they need.” Others may need to try alternative methods, including warm water immersion.

Using Your Hot Tub To Help You Sleep

Hot tub owners know how to get the most out of their spas, including how to improve sleep through warm water immersion. For many, this involves creating a daily hot tub ritual around regular activities, including sleep.

Warm Water Immersion Followed By Cooling Promotes Drowsiness

Enjoying a soak about 90 minutes before bed not only calms you but signals to the body that bedtime is near. After soaking in the hot tub, your body cools, and as your body temperature falls, you naturally get drowsy. Climbing into bed feeling calm and comfortable may help you fall asleep faster.

Consult A Doctor For Persistent Sleeplessness

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for better sleep. Yet, by using a hot tub while changing sleep-impeding habits, you may get the rest needed to be your best self. For help with sleeplessness and related medical conditions, always consult your doctor.
