Hot Tubs Make Relationships Better

While hot tubs have all the above great affects, they can also help you improve your social connections which in turn releases anxiety.

For example, when you spend time with family and friends in the hot tub, it’s distraction-free. You also reduce the feelings of loneliness that contribute to stress and anxiety levels.

Soaking together allows for intimate conversations that build and strengthen your connections.

Hot Tub Accessories Contribute

The following accessories contribute to your overall sense of well-being:

  • Spa lights and music can help set the mood for stress reduction. Calming lights in cool colors like blue or green can relax the mind, especially after a hard day at work under harsh office fluorescent lighting.
  • Music can have a similar effect on mood. Think of how energized you get listening to rock and roll or dance music, and how classical music soothes you. Modern luxury and premium spas have advanced entertainment features that often include wireless Bluetooth® audio connectivity, which allows you to connect your music system and devices right from your spa.
  • A hot tub waterfall or fountain provides the same peacefulness of a mountain stream. The relaxing white noise transports you to a place, far away from that presentation you have to give tomorrow.
