Have you ever caught yourself wondering what your life would be like if it was totally stress-free? Unfortunately, living life stress-free is something only a rare few actually get to enjoy. For the rest of us, learning to deal with the pressure and stresses of life is an important part of life. A great way to relieve the weight of work from your shoulders is to add a 10-minute hot tub break to your daily routine.
This break will pay for itself in increased productivity, improved mood and better sleep. This is because of the natural endorphins released in your body after a short stint in warm water. Endorphins work in a similar manner and have the same effect as the drugs morphine and codeine, but without the negative side effects.
More Information On Endorphins
When endorphins are released, they interact directly with the receptors in your brain which control our perception of pain and stress. On top of the main positive benefits, the release of endorphins also increases our level of happiness, lowers our appetite, creates sexual hormones and improves our immune system. Let’s just put it this way, if endorphins could be bottled and sold at your local drug store, there would be a Black Friday like rush to rip them off the shelves.
How Will a Beachcomber Hot Tub Help?
There are multiple scientifically proven reasons describing how a 20 to 30 minute soak in a hot tub can benefit the body and mind, here are just a few:
- Buoyancy eases pressure in joints and muscles, while heat increases blood flow to muscles and accelerates healing.
- In clinical studies patients who used hot tubs lost an average of 3.5 pounds in weight without any new diet or physical exercise programs. In short, the weight loss resulted from the hot water massage simulating the effects of exercise, on the muscles.
- A recent study for the Mayo Clinic recommended that relaxing in a hot tub can be beneficial for heart disease patients. The study showed that relaxing in a hot tub is less stressful on the heart and more beneficial than working out on an exercise bike!
The next time you feel stress creeping up upon you, think about the amazing benefits that endorphins can have for your body and how a hot tub can help you reach that state. There’s no better feeling than seeing and feeling the stress melt from your shoulders as you reach a serene and calm mindset.
