How to Use Your Hot Tub in the Summer

Are you ready for one of the most enjoyable times of the year? The summer is geared toward outdoor enjoyment and activities. Finally, you can put your snow shovel, coats, gloves, and heaters away, so you can get outside and enjoy the sunshine! One of those enjoyable winter activities you might think needs to go away for the summer season is spending time in the hot tub. Well, with the right technique, you can use your hot tub 365 days a year!

In this article, we’re going to get you the facts and provide you with some ideas to continue your hot tub time straight through the summer season.

Summer Cool Tubbin’

You had a hectic day at work. On your way back, you had to spend an hour in a traffic jam. In such a situation, all you want to do is to relax as soon as you reach your home. This is where your outdoor hot tub can really come in handy.

Just because the temperature was raised, doesn’t mean you can’t make good use of your spa. Simply turn off the heater so that the water remains cold, or turn it down so it’s a cooler temperature. That way, you can enjoy a relaxing and refreshing soak – no matter how hot it gets outside.

Use it at Night

If you choose to maintain a warmer temperature inside your hot tub, we recommend that you save your rejuvenating hot tub soak for once the sun goes down. The temperature outside will likely drop at night, meaning that sitting in the hot tub will probably be more comfortable for you.

Soaking in a hot tub at night can also prove to be beneficial to your health. Not only will it help to reduce stress and tension at the end of a long day, but it can also help prepare your body and mind for a long, uninterrupted night of sleep.

Host a Party

Looking for something to do on a beautiful summer weekend? Why not host a backyard hot tub party? You can spend time with family and friends outside, enjoying the warm summer air, while your guests soak their worries away in the hot tub. Take your backyard hot tub party to the next level with finger foods, drinks, outdoor accessories, high-quality outdoor furniture, exterior lighting, and music. If you own a fire pit, this might be a great opportunity to fire it up.

Post-Exercise Healing

The summer provides a great opportunity to go outside. Many people enjoy spending time in nature, playing sports, going fishing, heading to the beach, and going for hikes, among many other outdoor activities. After exerting yourself physically, you might find that your body feels sore, tired, or uncomfortable.

Spending some time in your hot tub following these physical activities can help your muscles relax, soothe sore joints, and ease built-up tension. The heat of the water will help improve your circulation, helping blood and oxygen reach sore muscles naturally and effectively. Not to mention that a lovely post-exercise hot tub soak can simply help your mind to relax and regroup, especially following vigorous exercise.
