Celebrate the Winter Solstice in your hot tub

JacuzziThe Winter Solstice is nearly here—December 21st. It signifies the start of winter, and is also the longest day of the year. Solstice occurs when the sun is directly overhead of the Tropic of Capricorn in the Southern Hemisphere.

Part of the word “solstice” is derived from the Latin word sistere, meaning “to stand still”. (The reason for this is because to many it appeared as though the sun and moon had stopped moving across the sky.)

Celebrating the Winter Solstice in your hot tub is a terrific way to take some time to quiet yourself, reflect, and place yourself outdoors to enjoy your place in the universe we call home. It can be a great annual ritual. Creating a new tradition like this can help bring peace and heart to the holiday season.

Light a few candles and place them by your hot tub. Enjoying the flickering candle light while immersed in the warm peaceful water of your hot tub will really enhance the experience. Play some soothing music (I like George Winston’s December). Or, if you prefer, simply soak in silence and reflect. The quiet of a dark winter night can certainly instill a sense of peace, and allow your mind to purge itself of so much “muck” that fills it during the course of a busy day.

Water itself is known for its renewing properties, which is a perfect place to spend the Solstice. The day is the start of the renewal of the sun, and nature’s start to return to warmer and livelier times ahead.

During the holidays, who doesn’t need a reason “to stand still”?

 

 

How do you escape holiday stress? In your sauna!

The PS 4x6 Traditional SaunaYep, the holidays are here. So much to do—shopping, Christmas cards (hopefully you still send them!), holiday parties, kid functions, travel, dinner planning…the to-do list increases but the amount of time to accomplish everything just stays the same.

How do you keep the stress at a minimum and keep yourself in the holiday spirit? Take a sauna every morning. Regardless of whether you retreat to a traditional steam or infrared sauna, both will do wonders.

Starting your day out with a half hour in your sauna will definitely get you in the right frame of mind to tackle what lies ahead. Too many of us run through the functions of the day, get stress galore, and then come home to try and relax and get rid of the stress. Why not arm yourself at the start of the day to be prepared for what lies ahead?

Something that certainly helps put you in the holiday mood and is a nice start to the day in your sauna is a cup of peppermint tea. Not only will it taste like the holidays, it will also help you waken to start your day. Take your peppermint tea to the sauna and spend a minimum of 30 minutes inside. Let the warmth rush extra blood to your brain, and aid your body in releasing endorphins. Not only does endorphin release put you in a good mood, it also aids your body deal with pain and stress relief. (What better way to start the day!)

The holidays can be a joyful time. Take care of yourself each day with a sauna session to help you elevate your mood and minimize your stress. It’s the best gift you can give yourself!

Five ways to guard your hot tub from the harsh winter weather

J425_no_people_nostereo_SnowWe’ve seen snow already this year—far earlier than we normally do! There’s no telling what lies ahead in the next few months, especially since winter doesn’t officially start till December 21st. One way to survive the cold is to make sure your hot tub is always hot & ready for revival. Here are five ways you can make sure your hot tub is in perfect working order for that soak escape.

  • Keep your hot tub cover in shape. Since your cover is designed to keep the heat in (and the heating bills low), do what you can to keep it in shape through the winter months. During wind storms and heavy rains, make sure you go out afterwards and brush any excess debris off the top of the cover with a broom. Snow is also not a cover’s friend—it will weigh it down and could cause one of the foam cores to crack. Do not limp a cover through the winter if it accidentally gets pierced by a flying branch. Once that happens, the cover will take on water rapidly, become heavy and water logged, and starts the energy meter running. If that happens, be sure and get a new hot tub cover. You can arm your cover against absorbing unnecessary water by treating it with 303 Protectant. This will help the cover repel water absorption, and keep the vinyl from getting brittle. It will also provide UV protection to keep the vinyl from degrading.
  • Get a winterizing blanket. With periodic power outages, your hot tub’s equipment bay becomes prey to bitter cold temperature that could cause freeze issues to your heater, jet pumps, plumbing and circulation pump. A winterizing blanket tucks behind the tub equipment bay door, adding an extra layer of warmth for the compartment for extra protection.
  • Get new filters. Nothing is more disheartening than to head out to the hot tub to find out the water is tepid. Your tub relies on clean filters that aren’t as old as the hills to get proper flow to the heater and circulation pump. This in turn insures your tub is always up to temperature. (Note–# 1 reason for tub not heating: old filters!) Replace old filters now for a tub that stays hot (never mind stays clean!).
  • Keep your water balanced. Infrequent use of your hot tub can also lead to laziness in keeping the alkalinity and pH levels in the correct balance. Be sure you are testing your water weekly, even when you’re not using it on a regular basis. (Hint—Be sure your test strips aren’t expired! Testing supplies do have a shelf life for effective testing.)
  • Consider a Smartop. Remember the stuff discussed in the first point above about vinyl hot tub covers? How about ditching all those issues for good with a new Smartop for you tub? Smartops are now the rage, and will be the last hot tub cover you buy. A Smartop cannot get pierced by a branch, chewed by a critter, can hold up to 800 lbs., and are designed to not take on water! It will also help lock more of the heat in your tub, increasing efficiency. (They also add a great designer touch to your hot tub’s exterior.)

Keep using your hot tub this winter! And make sure it’s in great working order to enjoy it.
