“Most people have wonderful memories of the holidays - laughing with family and friends and having a wonderful time creating memories. But for many people, the holidays are an excuse to forget about healthy lifestyle choices we try so hard to maintain year round,” said Dan Friedman, vice president of The Hot Tub Store. “Establishing healthy habits for the holidays makes the season safer, easier and more enjoyable for everyone,” continued Friedman. Here are a few points to remember:
Limiting Alcohol Intake - Everyone looks forward to the festivities, parties and social gatherings that usher in the holidays. Unfortunately, it’s easy to forget how many calories can accumulate from just a few cocktails. Limiting alcohol consumption to two drinks in an evening is a smart strategy for not only watching the waistline, but keeping the mind sharp as well. Rotate sparkling soda between drinks and set a slow pace right from the beginning. Besides, the holidays are best when they can be remembered and too much alcohol creates fatigue, memory loss, even depression.
Organizing Finances - Shopping and spending money is to be expected during the season, but without a little organization, even the most conscientious shopper can get overwhelmed. Organize spending by creating lists, design a budget and stick to it. Balance the check book, throw away the old credit cards and plan to spend money in a less chaotic and more responsible way.
Ensuring Home Safety- With the holidays comes plenty of opportunities for accidents. Extra lights or tangled wires can create problems in even the most careful situations. Taking the time to ensure everything is secure and safe will significantly reduce the chance of an accident. Get in the habit of performing a pre-holiday safety check complete with making sure smoke detectors have new batteries, furnaces are functioning properly and the fireplace is clean and ready to go.
Relieve Stress with a Hot Tub - Stress and tension affect us all and can wreak havoc on an otherwise calm, peaceful holiday season. When gift buying, food shopping and planning become unbearable, a dip in the hot tub is the perfect solution. With massaging jets, warm water and buoyancy, a hot tub soothes away aches and pains, relieves neck and shoulder tension and lifts the spirits. When the holidays start to become a burden, a soak in the hot tub is an easy, convenient way to rejuvenate, revitalize and replenish the body and mind.
“We think this is a great opportunity to actually show local residents the positive effects that soaking in a hot tub spa can have in terms of improving the overall quality of their lives. That’s why we will provide free hot tub test soaks in all five of our locations throughout the entire month,” said Friedman. “We want residents to check out all the benefits of a relaxing in HotSpring Spa and hot tub for themselves.”
