As the pandemic has made most of us work from home, there is a new dynamic to adjust to. Working from home means that there is no longer the physical separation of work and life, with many people’s work/life balances suffering. Some find they work far longer than they used to, others find they work far less. Finding a healthy balance starts with being clear where work stops and life starts, and then dedicating time to take care of yourself.
An easy and holistic way to do so is by incorporating your spa into your routine. Before work, after work, or even during a break, outdoor hot tubs bring many benefits that can supplement your work, and enrich your life.
Before Work or During a Break
Stretching in a hot tub or swim spa is wonderful and can really set the tone for the day. As the spa’s heat warms your muscles, they become more pliable and you have a greater range of motion due to the buoyancy of the water. Stretching and balancing is also less of an effort as the water’s support means that your body only bears up to 20% of its weight. This is also a great time to do laps if you have a swim spa such as our DualStream SwimExpert, or simply yoga if you have a smaller hot tub.
If you love aromatherapy, citrus scents will awaken the mind and refresh the senses, energizing you for a productive day at work.
Stretching, yoga and/or a workout would also be a great choice after a long day at work. Some of the best stretches for back pain in a hot tub would be torso twists, hamstring stretches, the baby stretch, the cat stretch, and the side stretch.
There is also the simple practice of relaxing in a hot tub. The warmth of the water, the bubbling jets and the fact that your spa is outdoors will soothe the worries and stress of the day away. This can also be coupled with aromatherapy, with calming essential oils such as lavender and cedarwood. Ensuring that you unwind after a log day is key for a good night’s sleep, and ensures that you’re more ready for the next day.
Your hot tub is also a prime reason for spending more time with loved ones, which is great if you’ve been working all day and finally have some time to share with them.
