“Stress is a leading health concern affecting millions of Americans every day. We work hard, play hard and never seem to get enough time to refuel or recharge our bodies properly before we’re back at it again,” said Rich Hiner, president of International Hot Tub. “Unfortunately, stress is a growing problem and it’s only getting worse. According to a June study in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, stress levels in the United States are not decreasing, but have actually increased up 18-24 percent since 1983,” continued Hiner.
As a way to help local residents reduce the stress in their lives, IHT has published three easy and convenient ways to lower stress to let people live happier and healthier lives.
Work it Out - Exercise may not be exactly what’s on most people’s minds when they’re experiencing stress, but it’s one of the easiest, healthiest ways to naturally reduce stress levels. It is widely known that exercise increases overall health and helps maintain a healthy body weight. But it also improves well-being, improves mood and yes - reduces stress.
When exercising, the body releases endorphins, which are the body’s “feel good” neurotransmitters. Regular exercise will promote production of these endorphins, naturally relieving stress, leaving people feeling satisfied and in a great mood.
Learn to Laugh - Stress comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s easy to deal with it and sometimes it’s simply unbearable. Laughing can do wonders for reducing stress. In fact, there is a scientific reason why laughing helps promote good health and manage stress.
In the short term, a good “belly laugh” releases tension in the body, stimulates the production of endorphins and increases oxygen to the brain. Long term, laughing actually increases the immune system and can help people lead a healthier life.
Soak in a Hot Tub - A hot tub is one of the easiest, most effective ways to reduce stress. As soon as the body is immersed into the water, tension starts to disappear and relief sets in. Warm water and massaging jets combine to target the areas of the body where stress accumulates, giving much needed relief.
The neck, lower back and any other parts of the body that are sore, overworked or tense relax. Plus, a hot tub does wonders for sleep, helping many people get the restful deep sleep they need to recharge and face the challenges that lie ahead. For pain relief, stress reduction and just an all overall break, we suggest that people make a dip in the hot tub a part of their nightly routine.
“In an effort to help educate the public on how HotSpring Spas and hot water therapy can reduce stress, ease pain and improve overall well-being, we will provide free hot tub test soaks in our 4 locations during the entire month,” said Jill Seng, marketing manager. “We want consumers to check out the benefits of a relaxing soak in an energy efficient hot tub for themselves.”
“Since we expect a huge response to this offer, we encourage people to schedule their free 30-minute soak with us ahead of time by calling 303-296-7727 to reserve their time,” continued Seng. “That way we can have everything ready for a relaxed, private, no pressure hot tub experience.”
