A 15 Minute Hot Tub Soak Could Help You Sleep Better

The National Sleep Foundation recently conducted a poll which showed that 38% of men, and 48% of women suffer from some form of sleep disorder such as insomnia more than one night per week. After pain, insomnia is the second leading reason for people to visit their doctors.

Our hectic and stress-filled lifestyles are a major reason for the rise in insomnia cases. This leads to memory problems, shattered nerves, even mood swings and depression. Work production suffers and relationships become strained. Sometimes they even break.

Did you know that often you can help your body prepare for a deep and restful sleep without medication? According to a report in the scientific publication Sleep, your body can be eased into a state of deep and relaxing sleep by a drop in body temperature after going to bed.  Soaking in hot water about 90 minutes before bedtime triggers your internal thermostat to lower your temperature, thus inducing sleep to set in more easily.

A 15 minute soak in your hot tub before bedtime can be a natural way to achieve restful sleep without the use of drugs.  Most hot tub users awaken in the morning with a clear head and feeling refreshed with none of the grogginess often associated with the use of sleeping medications or alcohol.

Caution: If you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, or any other medical condition, you must consult with your physician before beginning any hot water therapy program. Your doctor can help determine if it’s right for you.  Infants and children are more sensitive to the effects of heat, and experts recommend shorter soaking times. Consult your pediatrician.
