Do you love going to a wellness center for a day? Do you already feel your shoulders relax at the thought of swimming in a big swimming pool, soaking in the bubbling water of a jacuzzi and enjoying the heat of a sauna? Then you might be interested in bringing this experience to your own home! We know not everyone has the budget nor the space to build an indoor swimming pool, but luckily saunas, hot tubs and spas are usually a bit more affordable. And even better: you can buy an inflatable spa (Dutch: opblaasbaar bubbelbad) and bring the spa experience to your home on a smaller budget. But other than ‘it is fun’, having a spa in your home is good for your overall health. We’ll gladly tell you more about this in our article!
Reason #1: soaking in a spa will make you sleep better
Do you sometimes twist and turn in bed for hours? Then regularly soaking in a spa might help you sleep better! Because of the temperature of the water, your muscles relax and you’re able to let go of stress. Furthermore, the hot water raises your body temperature, which gives you that tired, warm feeling. Once you feel yourself getting drowsy, dry yourself off and go straight to bed. You don’t want to fall asleep in your spa! And if you’re tempted to check your phone after your soak, it might be a good idea to leave that one on the side, so you don’t have any distractions and you can just go to sleep straight away.
Reason #2: your heart gets a workout
Good cardiovascular health is important. Did you know that when you regularly soak in a spa, your heart gets a workout? The water puts pressure on your body, which increases your cardiac volume. That means your heart has to work harder than it does when you’re just doing regular things.
Reason #3: clearing up headaches
Sometimes, your head can ache that much you just want to take a gigantic Advil and go to sleep. But soaking in a spa might also have the same effect. The warm water dilates your blood vessels, which decreases the pressure in your head.
