Adjust to Daylight Saving Time in a Hot Tub
When Daylight Saving Time ends the first weekend in November, we turn back our clocks for what seems like an extra hour of sleep. Sounds like that would make most of us feel better, right?
Well, this isn’t always the case, and in this article, we look at how to adjust to Daylight Saving Time in a hot tub.
Hot Tubs Ease the Adjustment
You probably know about the many benefits of the hot tub – relief from sore muscles, relaxation, less stress, and more, but did you know a hot tub can help you sleep better? And, with Daylight Saving Time, it can help you adjust to your new sleep schedule that involves darker nights and brighter mornings.
How Hot Tubs Help With Sleep
A simple soak in your spa for 15 minutes about an hour or so before bedtime helps relax your muscles, relieve muscle tension, all while calming your mind and helping prepare your body for a good night’s sleep.
As your body temperatures changes, you also give it a signal that sleep is near. When you’re awake, your body temperature is higher. As it drops, you feel more drowsy, and the hot tub helps you with this temperature decline.
When you fall asleep, your body temperature naturally cools down. When you hop out of your spa, your body naturally cools down, preparing you for sleep. Ultimately this helps you not only fall asleep faster but stay asleep.
Now that you know another one of the benefits of hot tub soaking, it’s time to dedicate yourself to regular hot tub soaking. You’ll be amazed at how much your sleep improves.
