Hot Tubs Help Manage Stress
If you have a hot tub, or are thinking about purchasing one, we bet you’ve read the many articles on the health benefits. One of those is stress reduction.
As busy adults, the hot tub is a place of relaxation. It’s a spot where you can de-stress and let the day’s worries float away. The same is true of your tweens and teens.
Being an adolescent is stressful these days and comes with its own set of anxiety. And, hot tubs can help your teen manage stress in the same ways it helps you.
Hot Tubs Help Communication
One way kids can de-stress in the hot tub is by opening up to trusted adults in the hot tub. Perhaps you and your spouse are worried about your teenagers. You know they’re worried, but dragging them away from social media seems to be a struggle.
You can help your teen navigate their troubles by soaking in the warmth of a hot tub.
Because there’s no room for smartphones in the hot tub, you have their undivided attention.
There, in the warm, massaging waters, you can give your kids support by lending a listening ear. Or, you can sit quietly until they open up about their worries. You might hear about girlfriend/boyfriend issues, friendship problems, sports, extracurricular activities, and more.
Sharing a hot tub soak is a safe environment for your kids to open up.
A Hot Tub Builds Memories
Whether you have an hour long conversation, or your talks evolve over many weeks, the hot tub can help you create great memories with your older children. It’s a great place to talk, listen, and be still together while showing them they matter by spending quality time with them.
Adolescence is is hard for even the most confident kids. Give them the self-esteem they need to survive their high school years by really listening and sharing time to together in the hot tub.
