When the weather is cold and snowy, using your hot tub is more pleasurable than at any other time of year. That can't be more obvious than by the way our monkey friends enjoy it, as seen in the photo above. It may seem that being in your bathing suit outside in winter might be a chilling experience. But for many hot tub owners, the time they spend in their tub during the winter months is the time they enjoy their hot tub the most.

When you fantasize about the luxury of a personal hot tub in your own backyard, what do you see? Do you see scenes from that movie, Hot Tub Time Machine? For some, perhaps. Maybe you see family time, with the kids or grand kids.

With your Hot Spring or Caldera Spa, you're already gaining numerous benefits in life: relaxation, wellness, stress relief, healthier relationships, and massage therapy.  But there's another less-talked-about benefit that we often take for granted, especially during long, dark winter months.

Take advantage of MOOD lighting with your hot tub, often thought of as chromatherapy. The soothing qualities of color from LED hot tub lighting allow our bodies and mind to drift and relax in the warm hot tub. The psychology of color is a powerful thing, especially at night when the sun sets.

Don't let Frosty melt in your hot tub this season! It's easy to overlook him when you're busy putting the tree up, decorating, shopping, meal prepping for parties, grading exam papers, and all the endless December activities!

Now that I have your attention...It's so important to carve time out each day to unwind with yourself, friends and loved ones so you can tackle the crazy, seemingly unnecessary stress during this time of year. Stress can build up from a variety of reasons; one being over-shceduling and feeling too busy, especially during the holiday season. Make time for YOU and YOUR body...20 minutes a day in the hot tub can help you relax and de-stress. It will also energize you, especially when it's frigid outside, and relax you for a much needed good night sleep!
