Hot Tubs Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2012
The Hot Tub Store, a new and used hot tub dealer with stores in Santa Rosa, Vacaville, Roseville, Folsom, and West Sacramento is stressing the need to “de-stress” by educating the public and providing free hot tub spa test soaks in their 5 Northern California showrooms.
Recently, a study in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology found that despite what some Americans might think, our stress levels have increased significantly from years past. The study actually confirmed an 18-24 percent increase in stress levels since 1983.
“While it’s simply not possible to eliminate all stress in our lives, there are some easy ways to lower stress levels that don’t require much effort at all,” said Dan Friedman, vice president of The Hot Tub Store. “Rather than letting stress get the best of us, we’ve come up with three easy and effective ways to control stress,” continued Friedman.
Exercise – Most people know the benefits of eating right and staying active, but now there’s another reason to dust off those running shoes. When people experience elevated stress, the body has a difficult time getting the proper amount of oxygen. By exercising, you increase your body’s ability to take in oxygen, release tension in the muscles and stimulate production of endorphins which leave people feeling euphoric. The next time a stressful situation occurs try to take a walk and stretch as soon as possible. After ten minutes, most people will feel more in control.
Visit With a Pet - Here’s a suggestion that may sound a bit strange for relieving stress, but there are proven health benefits of owning a pet, and stress relief is one of the big ones. Research confirms the mood enhancing benefits of snuggling up to a beloved pet and for those people who are lucky enough to own one, they probably understand.
Pets of all types have been known to lower blood pressure and tension. It could simply be that staring into a pair of those cute puppy eyes makes many people forget their troubles or that they are more inclined to get outside and get some exercise. Whatever the reason, a visit with furry friends when feeling stressed is a great way to feel better fast.
A Relaxing Soak in the Hot Tub - The calming sensation of a warm, bubbly hot tub simply can’t be beat for relieving stress. Turn the jets on high and let the powerful massage work the tension from the body and unwind. In an instant, stress, tension and all thoughts of the day drift peacefully away, replaced by pure relaxation. It’s true, a hot tub is the easiest way to reduce stress and tension instantly, but did most people don’t know that regular use of the hot tub can actually enhance weight loss efforts and decrease symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes?
The health benefits of soaking in a hot tub even three days a week are astounding. Plus, use the hot tub to relax before bed and prepare the mind and body for a restful, deep sleep - exactly what the doctor ordered for clearing the head and de-stressing before bed.
“We think this is a great opportunity to actually show local residents the positive effects that soaking in a hot tub can have in terms of reducing stress and improving the overall quality of their lives. That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations throughout the entire month,” said Friedman. “We want residents to check out all the benefits of a relaxing in HotSpring Spa and hot tub for themselves.”
