From exercise to taking a quiet moment, it's important to find ways to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and just relax. According to a report from the American Psychological Association, three out of four Americans report experiencing at least one stress symptom in the last month.
In this video, Ben and Mari talk about how you can incorporate a swim spa into your stress relief routine.
Water exercise. The physical benefits of exercise are clear. Regular movement improves your heart health, lung capacity, and strength. However, exercise can have a relaxing effect among other mental health benefits. How does exercise help manage stress? It can take your mind off your to-do list and give you peace of mind that you are taking time for you. In addition, it improves your self confidence. Water exercise can be particularly helpful in relieving stress. Water is soothing and does not stress the joints. A Master Spas swim spa allows you to swim, aqua jog, and more without adding stress to your day. You can hop in as your schedule allows without sharing a lane at the pool.
Cool down and stretch. Stretching exercises are designed to help your muscles relax. But there's an added benefit. Cooling down after a workout or just stretching can help you relax your mind. These gentle movements, which you can do in the swim spa, will lower your heart rate and cue the release of endorphins.
Hydrotherapy massage. Massage therapy can help with myriad conditions, from headaches to insomnia. It can also help you manage aches, tension, and chronic pain. However, you can't always book a massage with your favorite therapist. Master Spas swim spas offer a custom hydrotherapy massage. Contoured hot tub seats feature a unique pattern of jets to target high-tension areas.
