    How a Hot Tub Can Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

    With 2019 now well under way, it may be a good time to check in with yourself on your New Year’s resolution progress. It’s also a good time to reflect on the fact that not all resolutions have to involve giving something up. In fact, by making your hot tub a pivotal part of any New Year’s resolutions for health, you can add a wellness routine that keeps giving back. By taking advantage of your hot tub, in combination with your diet and exercise goals, you will likely find it easier to achieve improved wellness this year. If your resolution involves losing weight and you pair improved nutrition with more regular exercise, consider a pre-workout soak in your Beachcomber. If done in the morning, this can also be a great time to focus on your goals and plan for the day ahead. Enjoying a post-workout soak can serve as an impactful reward for following through on your regular commitment to exercise.

    Some Tips for Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolution:

     

    Write your resolution down

    The first mistake can be not recording your resolution. Writing it down will help you prioritize your vow for the new year and prevent you from falling back into bad habits.

     

    Do all you can to make your resolution into a daily habit

    Try to format your resolution in a way that allows you to make daily steps (however small) towards achieving it.

     

    Make your resolution something you are passionate about

    If your New Year’s resolution focuses on something you are passionate about improving, you’re much more likely to follow through with it than if your motivator for change were guilt.

     

    Be sure to tell someone close to you about your resolution

    Peer pressure can be a valuable motivator in sticking to your New Year’s resolution. Friends and family checking in can be a useful counter against cravings or reluctance to work out.

     

    Celebrate your milestones

    Reward yourself (perhaps monthly), for sticking with your plan. Maintaining a positive outlook and recognizing your determination will help you stay on track.

     

    Equip yourself for success

    If living healthier and happier is the focus of your resolution, make sure you have what you need to be successful. A hot tub not only soothes and relieves post workout muscle pain and tension, it also alleviates stress and anxiety, and helps you sleep soundly. Your relationships can also benefit from regular social soaks and family time in your Beachcomber, contributing toward your overall mental health and happiness!

    How A Hot Tub Helps With Weight Loss

    Losing weight, and maintaining any degree of weight loss, means taking meaningful steps toward a healthier lifestyle. So how can something as relaxing as a hot tub soak really help you in your weight loss journey?

    Believe it or not, a hot tub really isn’t just for entertaining and unwinding. Countless studies have shown the benefits of a hot tub in helping owners lose weight and live healthier.

    Losing Weight With Your Hot Tub

    After you finish a work-out, stepping into warm water can elevate and enhance your healthy choices. By soaking in a Beachcomber Hot Tub, you speed up your post-exercise recovery time, improve circulation, and lower blood pressure. A hot tub also promotes clarity in your mind, helps improve your quality of sleep, and has even been shown to fight against conditions including diabetes and arthritis that can keep you from living life as your best self.

    Did you know you can even exercise in your hot tub?

    By submerging yourself in warm water, your body isn’t forced to exert as much energy when exercising. Unlike other environments, a hot tub provides a ‘soft’ space for workouts. Not only do you not have to worry about falling, as the water supports the body in every position, but the water also helps alleviate the feelings of fatigue because it’s supporting so much of the body’s weight. In addition, flexibility results due to the wider range of motion the body can achieve due to the absence of gravity on the joints. No equipment necessary. Don’t believe us? Here’s 5 Hot Tub Exercises To Try Now!

    Beyond weight loss, a hot tub, through the stimulation of blood vessels, can help tone body tissue and reduce fluid retention and swelling. The combined benefits of this has been shown to help diminish the appearance of cellulite.

    So, next time you think about having a soak in your Beachcomber Hot Tub, remember it’s doing more than just making you feel good – it’s making you healthier!

    Do Hot Tubs Really Help With Weight Loss? Get The Facts!

    A few weeks back, a study from Loughborough University went viral, with headlines across every major publication declaring a big breakthrough in weight management. Using a sample of men, the University discovered that soaking in hot water for 60 minutes had the same calorie burn as a half hour run. Even more surprising, the hot water soaks contributed to as much as a 10% higher decrease in blood sugar than high endurance cardio training.

    So what does it all mean? Can we forget exercise all together?

    The real takeaway from these findings shouldn’t be to diminish the impact of regular exercising, but instead to focus on the real impacts hot tubs can create in helping you live your healthiest, fullest lives.

    By combining successful weight loss ingredients, including healthy eating and regular work-outs, with regular hot tub soaks, you can amplify your results and improve your chances of sustaining an overall healthy outlook.
