Are you constantly stressed out? Do you feel like an alien at work as your coworkers wear matching company t-shirts and chant company cheers together before you’ve even had your first cup of coffee? In 2017, Americans reported feeling more stressed out than ever following a presidential campaign filled with extreme vitriol and hate from both sides. It goes without saying that the easiest way to ruin a pleasant conversation is to talk about politics. It’s not just our current political situation fraying the nerves of Americans; work and finances also contribute to keeping you up at night. Credit card debt, student loan debt, mortgage and car payments can keep people up at night. If you are not in debt but still feeling stressed out, it might be time for you to purchase a home spa.     

The Calming Effect of Water

Scientists are currently studying the effects of water on the psyche of humans. Simply being close to water has a calming effect on most people, although the exact reason why has yet to be determined. If you are live near a body of water such as a lake or a beach, walking or sitting in silence by the shore could renew your spirits. Whether or not you live close to a body of water, you could conveniently add a calming source of water into the comfort of your own backyard with a hot tub.


Floating in your hot tub can actually change your brain waves, contributing to a more relaxed state. Not only will you feel calmer floating in your hot tub, but you will also feel more creative due to the change in your brain waves.

Soothe Your Achy Body

Not only will your mind feel renewed and recharged from a good soak, your body will reap the benefits as well. The sense of buoyancy you feel in the bubbles of your hot tub combined with the heat relaxes tired, sore muscles and joints. People with rheumatoid arthritis enjoy soaking in home spas to help ease their aching joints.

Soothing Sounds And Music

The sound of the bubbles in home spas can also soothe your frayed nerves. However, if you prefer to listen to music while hot tubbing, make sure to listen to soft, relaxing tunes. This is not the time to blast Judas Priest or hardcore rap, so try throwing on some soft instrumental music or laid-back acoustic tunes instead.  

Sleep Better At Night

Stress makes sleeping through the night difficult, which only results in more stress because you are sleep-deprived. However, soaking in a hot tub helps you fall asleep quicker and sleep better throughout the night. A good soak elevates your body temperature, which helps with your natural sleep patterns. By spending time in the spa at night, you will feel more relaxed and be more prepared for sleep. Why wouldn’t you want a hot tub?
