The heat is up and I’m sure lots of people in California could use a few tips on making the most out of their hot tubs and swim spas. Relaxation might seem like the easiest thing to do, but there’s actually an art to it. Here’s some advice on how to get some R&R this summer with the system you’ve got from Fair Oaks’ premier swim spa and hot tub dealer. Get ready for some restful and refreshing times!
Prepare to Be Pampered
You could just turn on the hot tub and dunk yourself in. But would that really take away your stress and worries? Why not maximize the moment with a truly relaxing set up?
- Light some scented candles.
- Or arrange some incense sticks.
- Play a relaxing tune.
These preparations take your mind away from stressors, add refreshing aromas and soothing sounds, and get you warmed up for the hot tub experience. Your hot tub dealer should be able to show you models with customizations like iPod docking stations to speaker and subwoofer upgrades to help you ease into a zen state.
Close Your Eyes and Breathe
Inhale that soothing warmth, the calming scents of the candles or incense. Close your eyes and lose yourself to the music being played. Put your worries away and just feel the warm water flowing around you. Close your eyes and enjoy the moment. Be one with it. Nothing outside can bother you.
Yes, you can meditate in a hot tub! Being in a comfortable place helps with the process. What can be more comfortable than luxuriating in those soothing warm waters?
What is meditation? At its simplest, meditation is a process in which you focus your mind and separate it from distractions and worries. At the higher levels, there’s more to meditation than that, but for hot tub relaxation purposes, we can stick with the basics.
If you’re not well-versed in the practice, you can try it out for a few minutes in the tub.
It helps to perform it regularly, with a routine. So you can schedule hot tub meditation sessions every few days at the same time of day.
As you immerse yourself in the soothing water, you can begin the process of focusing and relaxing your mind just as your body eases itself.
Be still while emptying your mind of distraction while staying aware and mindful. Meditation isn’t just about dozing off.
Don’t let your thoughts wander. Focus your awareness and mindfulness inward while being still.
And… just keep at it, time and time again. Remember, don’t stress out over it. You’re supposed to relax, after all!
