AD - This is a paid advertorial but all thoughts are my own

Although we’re in Essex, my boyfriend’s parents live in Lincolnshire and one of my favourite things about their house is their hot tub. I have spent MANY long hours in that hot tub, by myself, staring at the stars (they live in the middle of the country so stars are always out in full magical force), chatting with his Mum or having a little date night with my boyfriend himself. That’s one thing I’ve really missed in lockdown!

Hot tubs have SO MANY benefits both mentally and physically and whilst you’ve always got to express caution, follow guidelines and ensure it’s safe for you to use (in regards to any pre-existing medical conditions), a hot tub can provide you and the family with a lot of happiness over the Summer (and into Winter of course!)

So if a hot tub has been on your radar for a while and you need convincing, here are some health benefits of getting a hot tub this Summer:

Helps with muscle aches and pains

I suffer with a lot of lower back pain due to posture and having a FAR FROM IDEAL work set up. So the hot tub was an absolute GOD SEND for that. It was a hot tub with jets and different settings so blasting that hot water onto my lower back was heavenly. If you’ve been working out a lot or have a pulled muscle, a hot tub could be really beneficial.

Stress relief

There’s something about hot water isn’t there? Whether it’s a bath or a hot tub, it can be super relaxing and almost wash the stress of the day off of you. I found a lot of moments like that when using a hot tub. It was perfect to relax in after a hard day working non-stop (which although I was technically “away” I still took my laptop with me and worked). A really great option for a bit of Summer self care!

Sensual date night

You could also have a pretty romantic date night in a hot tub so getting a hot tub could be a fantastic way of spending more quality time with your partner. Get out the wine and the chocolates or strawberries and just enjoy each others company in the hot water. Although always be cautious when drinking alcohol in a hot tub.

Quality family time

It’s also a great way to spend more time with the family. Grab the kids, grab some snacks and spend a fun couple of hours in the hot tub! You could play games in there like word association or eye spy, listen to music, chat and be with each other as well as all the other incredible health benefits along with it!

Helps you sleep

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 30 million Brits suffer from insomnia but a study in the ‘Sleep’ journal shows that going in a hot tub at night before bed will help you sleep quicker and much more soundly whilst your body cools. It’s the same for having a bath before bed but personally, hot tubs are much nicer! Because…

Allows you to spend more time outside

Of course being in a hot tub means you’re spending more time outside in the fresh air and that is ALWAYS a positive and has many health benefits of it’s own, so combined with the benefits of a hot tub, that’s a huge well-being boost for you right there!

Want to win your OWN hot tub? I’m sure all those benefits have convinced you that YES you do!

  2. I would absolutely love to have a hot tub! I can see how they can be great for your muscles, and they must be soo relaxing. I actually can’t remember the last time I even sat in a hot tub.. maybe I can find a holiday home somewhere that has one in the near future!

  4. Great post. I’ve always dreamed of having a bath tub. I really hope to get one when I buy my own place, haha. <3 Keep writing such interesting content, please.

  5. I love pools and hot tubs! We don’t have a hot tub but my parents have a huge above ground salt water pool and we live less then 5 minutes from a YMCA that has a salt water pool, waterslide and giant hot tub pool. As soon as they open back up (still closed from COVID) and I feel it is safe I want to get a pass for the pool and hot tub because I love the heat with arthritis and Fibro!

  6. This was so interesting, I’ve always thought of hot tubs as a thing that some people have in their gardens but I’ve never considered potential benefits like this x

  7. I would love a hot tub! I always head straight for them when I’m on a spa day. I find them so relaxing and soothing. I keep mentioning them to my husband so you never know, we might end up with one x

  8. We have been wanting a hot tub for AGES! But we have no space out the back for it at the moment. We were meant to get our yard landscaped but then COVID happened. So we’ll have to wait until next year. I look forward to finally having my hot tub then!

  9. Oh my goodness! I would LOVE to have a hot tub! I’ve been telling my hubby for years that we need one and this is just further proof that we do lol

  10. Ugh I’d LOVE to have a hot tub!! I never realised there were so many health benefits to it either! It’s always my go to thing when I visit a spa. Hot tub over sauna any day!! Especially now the nights are longer, just being able to chill as the sun sets, in the quiet, just quiet music and the bubbles… perfect evening!

  11. A hot tub is the dream! I know someone locally who has one and always so jealous when I see her on FB in it, ha. I have insomnia though, so I guess that gives me a good excuse to get one?

  12. I wish I owned one! They really are relaxing aren’t they? I love being in one in the winter when you have a cool breeze to cool you off!

  13. I’ve been trying to convince the other half for us to get a hottub for ages so I’m going to show him this post to convince him some more. Its amazing how many benefits there are to a hot tub

  14. I love a hot tub whenever I go for a weekend away I always try and get a hot tub because they can be so much fun! I had no idea they had health benefits too!

  15. Oh my god, I LOVE nothing more than a good Hot Tub. My boyfriend and I go to ‘Forest Holidays’ twice a year JUST so we can sit in a hot tub in the countryside and chill. There is nothing better. We are already saving up for our own tub! xX

  16. Whenever I see those inflatable hot tubs I make a point of highlighting it to my husband… He hasn’t gone for it yet but to be fair, we don’t even have a garden. Maybe one day though because I’d love to have a hot tub!
