The weather is cool. The days are short. There may even be a dusting of snow on the ground. What could be more perfect than spending time in your hot tub?

The long, cold days of winter are the best time to relax, enjoy peaceful time on your own and enjoyable days with your family. The hot tub is the perfect place to do them all.

Your hot tub can be an enjoyable part of your winter time months. In this article, we look at nine tips for using your hot tub in the winter.

#1: Buy a Good Cover

For hot water whenever you’re ready to soak, invest in a good cover so your spa is well-insulated. You want your cover to have a tight-fitting seal to keep the hot water hot and to save on energy costs.

A good cover means you’ll soak more even when it’s freezing outside.

#2: Check the Water Level

You want to make sure your components don’t freeze and damage your hot tub. So, check your water level frequently so it doesn’t fall too low.

#3: Know When to Change Your Water

Take a look at your year-long calendar. If your hot tub is due for a water change during the winter, you want to think about doing it earlier in the year.

If you change the water when the outside temperatures are really low, you risk water freezing and damaging your spa.

#4: Keep the Water Clean

During the winter months, it’s just as important to clean and maintain your water and your filters.

Stay on a schedule so you know when your filters need to be cleaned or replaced.

#5: Turn Jets Down

It’s fine to use the jets when you’re soaking but turn them off when your hot tub isn’t in use.

Why? The jets work by blowing air into the water, which can lower the temperature.

#6: Soak Smart

It can be tempting to spend an hour in your hot tub when it’s freezing outside.

Remember, though, that your body temperature climbs when you’re in your spa. Because of this, limit your soak time to about 20 minutes so you don’t shock your body too much moving from extreme heat to extreme cold.

#7: Drink Water

Anytime you soak, you want to stay hydrated. Cold or room-temperature water is fine, just keep drinking water for your health.

Stay away from alcohol in the hot tub because it can cause dehydration. Save it for after you leave the hot tub.

#8: Plan Ahead

So, you’re soaking, and it’s time to get out. But, you left your shoes, your towel and your robe at the back door.

Your best bet is to keep your robe, towel and shoes/slippers right by your hot tub so you can slip into them right as you exit. This helps keep you warm as you move from outside to in.

#9: Decorate Your Sanctuary

Your outdoor hot tub area is a relaxing retreat, so enhance it for extra comfort. Here are some ideas:

  • Heating lamps
  • Towel warmer
  • Waterproof rug
  • Hanging lights
  • Music

Have you ever noticed the way your morning starts is usually how you feel the rest of the day?

For many of us, it’s a mad dash that leaves us stressed and grumpy. You may have just enough time to grab a cup of coffee while you usher kids out the door and try to get to work on time.

Since it’s the start of a new year, why not shake up your routine a bit and wake up your mornings by putting your hot tub first.

Make a commitment to take care of yourself by following these tips:

Greet the Day

After crawling  out of bed, make yourself a cup of coffee or grab a bottle of water and throw your bathing suit on. Grab a towel and head outside.

Gently climb into your hot tub and just sit for a few minutes taking in the cool air, the quiet, the sun peeking out behind the clouds. This is your time.

Next,, turn on your jets and enjoy the massage. Take some time to greet your day with some reflection.

Soak for 10

The best way to start your day is with a short soak at 104°. You’ll find that just 10 minutes can leave you ready to greet your day rested and refreshed, and ready to take on any challenges that might come our way.

If you  soak much longer than 10 minutes in the early morning hours, you’ll end up wanting to go back to bed!

Stretch a Bit

Perhaps you worked out before our soak. Or, maybe you’re going to the gym after your soak, or the day is an exercise-free day. Regardless, it’s a good idea to start your day with a stretching session.

The warm water in your hot tub helps loosen your muscles and get you ready for your day. Do a bit of stretching in your tub for an even better experience.

For those of you who are quite sore after getting out of bed in the morning, a hot tub soak is just the thing for taking away your aches and pains.

Enjoy Nature

There’s nothing better than an early morning soak for watching the world wake up. There’s wildlife all around, and it’s best heard in the morning hours as the sun climbs higher and animals start to awaken.

Enjoy this time in your hot tub to appreciate all nature has to offer.
