The Benefits of Outdoor Entertaining With A Hot Tub

The Benefits of Outdoor Entertaining With A hot tub

As the temperatures drop (and fluctuate erratically), our physical and mental health can take a toll. The winter months can make you feel drained and less productive than usual. The bright side is that you can do plenty of things to improve your mood and spirits. You just have to nudge yourself a little harder to brave the initial cold.

One of the things you can do to lift your spirits in the winter is to put your hot tub to good use. Outdoor entertaining in your hot tub checks many beneficial boxes, like getting fresh air, reaping the benefits of hydrotherapy, and spending quality time with friends and family.

Fresh air can make you feel better.

Spending time outside positively affects our mental and physical health and well-being. Studies have shown that being outside triggers physiological responses that help reduce stress and anxiety. And you don't have to be exercising to benefit from the outdoors. Simply relaxing in your hot tub qualifies!

You get additional health benefits if you hang out in your hot tub on a sunny day. UV radiation helps your cells make vitamin D, which is essential for bone health and the musculoskeletal system. Getting as little as 10 to 30 minutes of midday sunlight several times a week can allow the body to produce enough of this essential vitamin.


Hot tub hydrotherapy can also make you feel better.

Hydrotherapy is water therapy using hot or cold water, with varying degrees of water pressure to alleviate physical and mental health symptoms. Hot tubs are excellent sources for hydrotherapy, as the combination of immersion, heat, and powerful jets provides many benefits.

Benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy:

  • Improves blood circulation
  • Reduces muscle tension
  • Promotes relaxation
  • Improves mental health
  • Decreases arthritis symptoms
  • Promotes recovery from exercise
  • Reduces chronic pain
  • Improves sleep quality

Spending time with friends and family is essential to our well-being.

Many studies show that social support from friends, family, or a spouse is strongly associated with improved mental and physical health. And reviving a dormant social life (most common in the winter) may be easily done by finding time for enjoyable activities like outdoor entertaining in your hot tub. It gives people an excuse to get together in person to enjoy a relaxing and spa-like experience in the company of friends or family.

Benefits of socializing:

  • Lower stress levels
  • Improve mood
  • Encourage positive health behaviours
  • Boost cardiovascular health
  • Improve illness recovery rates

Outdoor entertaining in your hot tub covers it all.

If you tally up the benefits of all the above, you can see that outdoor entertaining in your hot tub is a great idea to promote good health! You can take the experience up a notch by adding games to the mix, leaving your phones and screens behind, and introducing a theme!
