Thanksgiving is full of friends, family, and food – lots and lots of delicious, once-a-year food. And, while that is so exciting, it can lead to some unfavorable side affects.
So, if you’ve had one too many servings of turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie, this article is for you! We’re going to let you in on a little known secret – a hot tub aids digestion.
As you eat your Thanksgiving meal, your body starts breaking it down and absorbing available nutrients. As your body directs blood flow to your stomach to assist with the digestion, it’s hard work on your body.
Think back to just how much you ate and how hard your body is working to process it and break it down. No wonder you don’t feel so good!
The Benefits of a Hot Tub Soak
How can you help your body? Slip into your hot tub for about 20 minutes after you eat your large meal.
By spending time in the hot water, you help your body widen your blood vessels. This is called vasodilation. The blood now has an easier time flowing through your arteries and reaching all over your body. You’ve just released the burden on your heart, and your blood pressure drops.
Not only has the hot tub soak improved your circulation, but you’ll also find it has other benefits.
A Hot Tub is a Welcome Retreat
Need a break from all the noise of the Thanksgiving party? A hot tub is a great place to relax and spend some time enjoying the hydrotherapy and the warm water massage.
You get out of the house and into the great outdoors. Whether you’re soaking alone or with others, you’ll find the mental benefits well worth it!
We wish you a wonderful holiday season and hope this article helps you find some much needed relief from any indigestion! Hot tubs have so many benefits, and this is just another welcome one!
