When considering all the ill-effects stress can have on the body, it's nice to know you have an outlet in your hot tub that reduces this very harmful state.
The following diseases and conditions have been associated with stress:
Anxiety disorders, depression, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease, certain gastrointestinal diseases, some cancers, and even the process of aging itself. Stress also seems to increase the frequency and severity of migraine headaches, episodes of asthma, and fluctuations of blood sugar in diabetics. There also is scientific evidence showing that people experiencing psychological stress are more prone to developing colds and other infections than their less-stressed peers.
And of course, where the development of any one of these items leads is certainly not where anyone would want to go.
The regular use of a hot tub draws out stress as the user relaxes and allows the necessary break to put things into perspective. Do I have people who love me? Do I have people who are in my life to help me? A person can better plan out their course of action when the brain is free to see beyond the "here and now". In other words, a hot tub is where you need to go for your "time out". To regroup and plan. After all, everyone needs a time out no matter how old they are.
