Create Your Winter Oasis with Lay-Z-Spa

Using your hot tub in the winter is one of the many benefits of owning a Lay-Z-Spa. In fact, it is arguably the most enjoyable time of year to use your hot tub. To put it into context; imagine that you’re relaxing in the 40°C water of your hot tub whilst the outside temperature is not far from 0°C, the AirJet™ massage is surrounding you with soothing bubbles, steam is rising up into the air and you’re looking out over a fresh blanket of snow. The picture-perfect scenario.

If you haven’t experienced an outdoor hot tub in winter, we highly recommend it. Throughout history, people have used hot springs for health reasons and relaxation and you can now do this in your own home. So, don’t pack your Lay-Z-Spa away after summer and try to make the most of it this winter. Even, if you don’t plan on using it as frequently as you want, Freeze Shield™ technology prevents your water from freezing and your Lay-Z-Spa will be ready to heat up ahead of when you want to use it.

Using a portable hot tub in winter is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the winter sun.

When the cold months come around, we regress into staying indoors as much as we can and feel the urge to hibernate. However, studies suggest that getting outside and getting sunlight is a great way to lift your mood and a great way to cure cabin fever. Using your hot tub outside in winter allows you to breathe in fresh air, you’ll get a much-needed dose of vitamin D, as well as many other health benefits, and you can admire the wonders of nature in winter. And, the best thing about this is, you can do it all whilst sitting back in luxuriously relaxing 40°C water.

With the days being shorter in the winter months, you’ll need to accommodate and accessories your garden into an indoor/outdoor living space to make evenings and night times comfortable and relaxing. Lighting plays a huge part in creating a cosy space. Try and use a variety of fairy lights, festoons, lanterns and pendant lights to mix up ambient and accent lighting. The Lay-Z-Spa drinks holder does a great job of keeping drinks and snacks and in very convenient reach meaning you barely have to lift your arm out of the luscious warm water.

Set up your hot tub in winter with easy accessibility.

The closer your hot tub is to your house, the more often you’ll find yourself using it in winter and the more tempting it will be. The shorter the distance from the warmth of your house to the warmth of your hot tub the better! You’ll still need slippers and a warm cosy bathrobe and we’d suggest somewhere convenient you can hang them in arms reach for when you are ready to get out.

De-stress with a hot tub this winter

Use your Hot Tub to De-stress After a Long Day

After a hard day of work, or Christmas shopping, take a dip in the hot tub to help you relax and unwind. Soaking for 30 minutes at the end of the day will help you to clear your mind and make getting to sleep a whole lot easier. We tend to stress out more over winter and the holiday season so a relaxing time in the hot tub after a long day of gift buying is a great way to help lower our stress levels.
