Are you groggy and grumpy? Is getting out of bed a challenge? Are you looking for a better night’s sleep?

The National Sleep Foundation says more than 132 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia more than one night a week.

If you are one of these people, you are probably very frustrated. Work is hard, patience is thin and downtime for fun activities may be non-existent because you’re trying to catch up on sleep.

Perhaps it’s hard for you to fall asleep. Or, perhaps falling asleep is okay, but waking up in the middle of the night is hard because then you can’t get back to sleep.

Either scenario is incredibly frustrating, especially when the buzzer goes off in the morning.

If you’re often chasing sleep, hot tub therapy can help.

Groggy and Grumpy

Hot Tubs are a Natural Sleep Aid

Soaking in a warm spa causes a drop in body temperature that aids in easing your body and mind into a relaxing, deep sleep. Take a 15-20 minute soak about 90 minutes before bed for a better night’s sleep, naturally.

You’ll find that not only will you fall asleep faster, but your sleep time is deeper and longer.

Why do hot tubs help?

  • Warm water relaxes you and makes the transition to sleep easier.
  • When you leave the warm water, your core temperature cools. This tells your body it’s time to go to sleep.

Will it Work for You?

Surveys and findings across the world show that yes, indeed, soaking in a hot tub can help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

Basically, it comes down to you. If you’re wondering if it will work for you, give it a try. It works for many people the world over and keeps them from having to rely on prescription sleep-aids.

Give it a try and see if it works for you!

Here are a few other things that can help you sleep better:

  • Do keep your bedroom cool as this helps you sleep.
  • Keep out noise and distractions.
  • Stay off your phone or tablet at least one hour before bedtime.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Stick to a schedule.
  • Listen to soft music.
