As we settle into the long winter season, you’ll want to consider some amazing hot…
As the weather warms up and you find yourself in your luxury spa from Wellis® USA more and more often, there’s one thing you simply can’t ignore: staying hydrated. Hot tubs are wonderful, amazing havens of relaxation, but they do require that you be intentional about your hydration.
Luckily, staying hydrated doesn’t have to be a hassle, and it can be, dare we say, enjoyable. Let’s dive into a delicious discussion with these five tips for staying hydrated in the spa.
1. Stay Educated About Hydration
The number one tip for staying hydrated in the hot tub is to first understand why hydration is so important when you spend time in the warm, warm water. Part of the reason that a soak in your luxury Wellis Spa is so relaxing is also part of the reason that it can cause you to experience dehydration more easily.
Most recommended spa soaks are around 100°F to 102°F, which is warmer than our normal body temperature of 98.6°F. That means that your body may already be working a little harder to maintain its temperature. And most spas are capable of reaching temperatures of 104°F.
All of that is to say that the warm waters of your luxury Wellis Spa will require you to hydrate. And when you’re armed with that knowledge, you can prepare properly.
2. Set Healthy Time Limits
One of the most important tips for staying hydrated in your Wellis Spa has less to do with drinking water and more to do with how long you stay in the water. Recommended soak times for your aquatic retreat are between 20 and 30 minutes. When you’ve reached your time limit, it’s recommended that you take a break and be intentional about drinking something like water or electrolytes.
After that, you can resume your splendid spa time again.
3. Stay Hydrated Before Your Spa Soaks
Unfortunately, hydration is not a quick and easy fix. Your best bet is to work on being hydrated all the time, especially a few hours or so before your planned spa soak.
Now, drinking some water right before you soak can be helpful, too, so don’t neglect that if it’s your only option. But drinking enough water (or other hydrating beverage like coconut water) throughout the day is your best bet for staying hydrated.
4. Hydrate During Your Spa Soak
Another excellent way to ensure that you can stay hydrated during your relaxing Wellis Spa session is to bring fun drinks into your hot tub with you.
Now, this is where we will tell you that it’s not recommended to consume alcohol while you’re soaking in your spa. That’s because alcohol can contribute to dehydration levels and can be dangerous. But hydrating during your spa session can still be fun and entertaining.
5. Make Hydration Fun Again
We know that water isn’t always the most exciting beverage for most people. But there are tons of options for hydrating beverages, and the more fun you make hydrating, the more likely you are to drink them.
Coconut water and fresh-squeezed juices can be combined for a refreshing and beautiful drink. Smoothies are another great option for your spa session with plenty of fresh fruit. And herbal teas are another hydrating beverage that you can customize to make taste amazing just for you.
Keeping these drinks accessible and available during your relaxation session in your luxury Wellis Spa is another foolproof tip for staying hydrated in the hot tub.
