How Can A hot Tub Help You Sleep?
Maybe you never thought of the good it can do for you to soak in a hot tub for 15 or so minutes before you’re ready for bed. Well, the fact is, just that simple activity can bring on a good, deep night’s sleep. A night’s sleep that is so good that when you wake up you’re not still exhausted, you actually feel rested and rejuvenated.
The National Sleep Foundation suggests that soaking in hot water, like you find in a hot tub or spa, before you head off to bed can ease the transition into a deeper, more fulfilling sleep.
If a person has pain of some sort, whether its mild to severe there is an anxiety that goes along with that that will often interfere with someone’s sleep causing them to still feel like they didn’t get enough sleep. By soaking in a hot tub for a half an hour or so before bed time will help alleviate the pain and if the pain is gone, so is the anxiety; and if the anxiety is gone there is an opportunity for a good night’s sleep. In order to heal from pain and to even attempt any pain management, there is one basic necessity; sleep. Without rest and sleep it is very difficult to have any grip on pain management, without the use of drugs.
Medically, it is believed that physical health and mental health are intertwined and there is a good shot at mental health if a person’s physical health is in good shape.
This whole idea of all of the aspects of our lives having an impact on one another sounds almost like, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” And like that age-old riddle the most important thing to understand is that one affects the other which affects the other. Which is more important to keep healthy? The answer is simply having an understanding of how all of these aspects of our lives affect one another has got us a step ahead of the game and that’s the best place to be when it comes to our overall health.
Good sleep will work wonders for the rest of your healthy life and a way to get good sleep is to soak in a hot tub for up to 30 minutes before going off to bed. When you have a good night’s sleep your body is able to rejuvenate and eventually heal it and that will bring about a healthy state of mind. A healthy state of mind will keep the physical body in tune and able to sleep fully and peacefully in keeping with the whole cycle.
It doesn’t really matter which came first, “the chicken or the egg?” What matters is that all of the cycle affects the rest of the cycle and on and on and if that means soaking in a hot top for a few minutes a night to allow your body to get the rest it needs, then so be it. Not a big price to pay, huh?
