A hot tub or spa can be a welcome addition to your home but only if you know how to enjoy it. Here are some easy-to-do tips for enjoying your hot tub to the fullest.
Read a Good Book
There’s no better place to catch up on your favorite novel than within the waters of your spa. Just make sure that you have enough light focused on the pages. You’ll also need a small table or some area to lay your book where it won’t get wet in case you need to take a break.
De-stress with a Soak
This traditional spa activity can get an upgrade if you include aromatherapy candles and essential oils that are specifically designed for hot tubs. Turn down the lights and play your favorite relaxing music. These, combined with the soothing jets of your tub, are a great way to eliminate stress after a long day.
Watch a Flick
With today’s modern technology, it’s easy to turn your hot tub into a movie theater. Again, you’ll need a table or platform that’s protected from water and big enough to hold your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. To take things up a notch, consider using a projector. If you’re going solo, focus on a favorite film. If you’re bringing in a crowd, check out movie rating websites so you can pick a flick that has high ratings and is something that everyone can enjoy.
Why not use your tub as an exercise machine? You can get fit with such easy exercises as bicycle kicks, shoulder rolls, arm circles, and thigh presses among others. What’s even better is that the water will help soothe tired muscles and provides a great place to relax after a tough workout.
Host a Party
Share the joys of hot tubbing with others by hosting a party. Set up some snacks and drinks, add some festive music, and then invite a few people over. Don’t forget to remind everybody to bring their bathing suits, slippers, and towels. But be prepared to bring some towels and slippers of your own in case your guests forget.
This is another event you can share with friends and family if your hot tub is located outdoors. During the day, it’s the perfect place to observe what’s going on in your yard and what the birds and butterflies are up to within the foliage. At night, you can look up at the moon or stars. Maps of the sky can be helpful in identifying what’s up there but only if you can slip them into waterproof sleeves.
Instead of spending time and money on going out, have your romantic night together at home. Start by prepping the space with flowers, candles, and some scents or oils designed for spas. Bring in some champagne and a snack or two. Cap it off with some soothing music that you both love and you’ll be ready to enjoy some alone time with each other.
