Hot Tubs – Natural Sleep Enhancers

From Home Living Answers

If you are one of the estimated 100,000,000 people in the United States that have trouble falling or staying asleep, then you have probably tried several remedies.  Some common things to try are drugs, either prescription or over-the-counter, sound machines, different pillows and matresses, etc.  New research suggests that soaking in a Hot Tub in the evening can actually help people fall asleep and have a sounder sleep, as this post from Home Living Answers presents.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

If you have problems with sleeping at night, you may find that you can benefit greatly from the use of a hot tub before going to bed. According to a recent survey, over one hundred million people in the US alone have some type of difficulty sleeping. Some of the reasons for this are simply due to modern life. Society of today is filled with long work hours, stress, and numerous other activities. It is no wonder that so many people have problems falling asleep. Imagine a relaxing soak in your hot tub followed by good night’s sleep – sounds good doesn’t it.

Sleep research has shown that a having a regular evening routine and bedtime rituals are the best way to having a restful night’s sleep. Studies have also found that relaxing in a warm bath or hot tub can promote restful sleep.

There are several theories as to why this is true with some believing that the warm water of the tub encourages the body temperature to drop. This is a natural indication that it is time to sleep. Others believe the buoyancy of the water relaxes the body to the state where it is ready for sleep.

Another popular theory is that soaking in a hot tub before bed relaxes the body and relieves the stress of the day. The likelihood, however, is that it is a combination of all three theories.

Most people like the idea of using a hot tub for help with sleeping because it provides a natural remedy. A soak in the spa does not have the risks associated with it that medications or herbal remedies may have. It is far more natural to spend some time soaking in a relaxing hot tub rather than popping a couple of pills to help you sleep.
