  1. Super Bowl + Hot Tub = The Best Party on The Block

    Leave a Comment

    Some people are paying big bucks to spend this Super Bowl in style by renting a house with a hot tub. The going rate for these rentals are between $500 and $1.000 a night! Fortunate for some of you, you already own a party hot tub right in the comfort of your own home! Being a Thermospa owner has a lot of perks – and this is one of them. Don’t miss out on the chance to host the ‘hottest’ Super Bowl party in the neighborhood. Winter is also the preferred hot tub season by most Thermospa owners.

    If you live in a cold climate and have an outdoor hot tub, here are some winter party tips for things to go a little smoother on the big day:

    Cold Weather Outdoor Hot Tub Tips:

    Plenty of towels. If you have an outdoor covering or your hot tub is close to your house, you can store your towels in a protected place; or you could do what one winter hot tubber suggested, place your towels in a cooler next to the hot tub to stay dry. If you have a towel rack for your hot tub – great. A towel warmer? Winter hot tub heaven. The Thermospa corner cabinet add-on is a hot tub accessory that doubles as a towel holder and an extra seat.

    Challenge: The Polar Bear Plunge. (This only works if there is snow) Get heated up in your hot tub,  jump into a pile of snow, make some snow angels, and then rush back in to the hot tub to reheat.

    Plastic flip flops. These are good to have around for any outdoor hot tub use, but are especially useful in the winter. In the cold weather, the water around the hot tub will splash outside the tub, and in freezing temperatures that water will freeze to ice very fast. There is a theory called the Mpemba effect that claims that hot water can actually freeze faster than cold water – so watch out!

  2. Healthy Sleep Tips – National Sleep Foundation

    Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine such as soaking in a hot bath or hot tub and then reading a book or listening to soothing music.

    A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep. Avoid arousing activities before bedtime like working, paying bills, engaging in competitive games or family problem solving.

    Some studies suggest that soaking in hot water (such as a hot tub or bath) before retiring to bed can ease the transition into deeper sleep, but it should be done early enough that you are no longer sweating or over-heated.

    If you are unable to avoid tension and stress, it may be helpful to learn relaxation therapy from a trained professional.

    Finally, avoid exposure to bright before bedtime because it signals the neurons that help control the sleep-wake cycle that it is time to awaken, not to sleep.
