Your portable spa is a great place for conversations. Whether you regularly catch up with friends or family or prefer the occasional get-together, immersion in a hot tub is ideal.
For example, time spent in a spa offers a nice block of time to be away from telephone calls, texts, and sets a time for family needs to be temporarily put to the side.
But a spa offers more than quiet time. Its relaxing bubbling waters help shut out surrounding noises and relaxes body muscles, all of which encourage the catching up to happen.
Plus, spas come in all sizes, so the size of spa you choose might depend on how many really close friends you have or you may want to chat with at any one time.
Many portable spas can be customized to create the ideal group set up.
Socialization Means Higher Quality of Life
One study about socialization says “research has shown that those who have strong social networks … seem to have a higher quality of life, live longer and are healthier.”
The study also says that this quality of life is important for those in retirement where socialization “plays a large role in maintaining quality of life and protects against cognitive decline..”
What’s even better, however, must be to combine the value of socialization with that of hydrotherapy — taking care of any aches and pains while keeping up meaningful relationships.
Having a swimming pool is no substitute for socializing in a hot tub because a swimming pool on its own isn’t designed for hydrotherapy like a spa is. Also, it’s not easy to chat with someone while you’re treading water or swimming laps.
But according to one major manufacturer Bullfrog Spas (available at our Windham store): “Soaking in a hot tub or hydrotherapy provides many health and fitness benefits, which may help to improve your quality of life and aid in your weight loss goals. It simply makes you feel better, and if you don’t feel well you won’t feel like exercising or eating right….*
Note: Of course this is just as true for the Aspen and Strong Spas also sold at all three Best Hot Tubs locations (Farmingdale, Westbury, Windham/NY).
In a spa, conversation does immediately bubble up because de-stressing is almost instantaneous in a hot tub. Add in some good background music, maybe even some bubble bath products, plus your dearest friend or friends, and you have the perfect location for finding out everything that’s happened since you last got together in the spa.
Men Like Catching Up, Too
Catching up with friends isn’t the purview of females, of course. While the topics of conversation may vary, men need time to catch up with their friends, just as much as women. Men also quickly find that their new hot tub works like a magnet for bringing friends to the door.
And the size of hot tubs today means comfortable seating no matter how tall and muscular the men are.
