Working from home is becoming the new normal for many. While it can take some getting used to, there are a lot of advantages to working from a home office.
One of the best benefits is the increased flexibility to use your spa at different times of the day. Let’s take a look at all of the options open to you now that you’re working from home.
Morning Routine With a Spa
In the past, morning dips were strictly for the weekends, unless you wanted to get up early to get in a 20-minute soak. Now that you work from home, your morning routine can be much more leisurely.
There’s no rushing around to shower, get ready and find the right outfit. You also don’t have to worry about the morning drive to work.
With all of this extra time on your hands in the early morning, it’s a great chance to get in some spa time and self-care.
Early morning is a wonderful time to relax in the hot tub. It gives you a chance to mentally prepare for the day ahead while also loosening up muscles that tightened overnight.
If you enjoy an early morning workout, you can combine the two by doing some yoga, jogging in place or performing a strengthening routine with squats, lower ab crunches, and wall push-ups.
When you’re done the moves, you can sit down and enjoy a massage targeted at the areas you worked.
Lunch Break in Your Hot Tub
Who says lunch break is only for eating? Why not use half of your break for a revitalizing 20-minute soak?
If you spend a lot of time in front of the computer, having some hydrotherapy mid-day can help prevent you from feeling sore by day’s end.
Mid-Afternoon Swim Spa Soak
One of the best things about working from home is being able to create your own schedule. If you normally start to feel tired, (mentally or physically) by mid-day, forget about getting a caffeine fix. Instead, head to your spa.
Stepping away from the computer and phone for half an hour to hit the hot tub may be just what you need to finish your day strong rather than running on fumes.
It can also help prevent or reduce headaches and sore muscles caused by several hours of work.
If you’re the type of person who prefers to work straight through the day, evening will be best for you.
You can either set your spa time for the period when you’d normally be getting into your car to drive home or wait until night falls to enjoy a dip under the stars.
Either way, your body will reap the relaxing benefits a spa can offer at day’s end.
Ways to Live a Happier and Healthier Lifestyle While Working at Home
Living your best life is more than just eating right and exercising; it’s also about taking care of yourself so you can live your life to its very fullest.
However, many of us do struggle with knowing how to do this, and in turn, we tend to fall short on this goal. If you’re looking to maximize the quality of your life, then these four tips can help you start living your happiest and healthiest life today!
Especially if you’re working from home or spending more time at home regularly.
Eat Right and Exercise
Most of us are no stranger to the bustle and grind of the 9-to-5 day. By the time we get home, we’re too tired and worn out to even begin thinking about trying to whip up a healthy meal or jog a 5K.
However, there are a few things you can do to make this a little bit easier. Meal prepping goes a long way in making healthy cooking a breeze. Furthermore, exercise can take on many shapes and forms.
If you’re not a fan of running, why not consider a gentle stroll around the block? Or maybe dance to your favorite tunes in your living room? The possibilities are endless.
Another approach to weight loss and weight maintenance? Try including a regular hot tub soak or swim spa exercise routine.
The benefits of a good night’s sleep are numerous. Most of us need at least seven to nine hours of rest each night, but we still fail to meet that goal. If you’re struggling to get enough sleep at night, you might want to consider introducing a nighttime routine.
Turn off your TV and your mobile device and gently unwind. A half hour soak in your outdoor spa, at least an hour before bedtime, can be just the ticket to help you sleep well.
It can ease out all the aches and pains in your body, allowing you to relax and feel ready to doze off when bedtime rolls around.
To further improve your sleep patterns with a hot tub, and reduce stress too, have you considered hot tub aromatherapy?
Forge Lasting Friendships
The importance of having a strong social network cannot be overstated. Even if you’re the type of person who enjoys a solo soak in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, you can still find other ways to connect with your community.
Even a brief phone call or video call with your family or best friend can be enough to help you feel rejuvenated and recharged and less alone. Knowing that your friends have your back can do wonders for your overall well-being.
Find Meaning in Your Day
The best life is one that has meaning. Even if you don’t believe that you’re making a major impact in the world, you may not realize that you mean the world to someone in your life. Finding meaning in your day may be as simple as spending time with a family pet or working in your garden.
When you’re done with your day, the feeling of accomplishment from knowing that you were working toward a goal can help greatly boost your sense of happiness. In turn, you can feel much healthier and ready to take on the world tomorrow!
