Dehydration occurs when an individual loses more fluid from the body than they take in. When this happens, the body can no longer function normally and the body will begin to show signs and symptoms due to the lack of fluid. Symptoms of mild dehydration include headaches, light-headedness and fatigue but this can progress to more serious symptoms such as dizziness, low blood pressure and even seizures.
Hot tub users can become dehydrated much more easily due to the high water temperature which causes the body to sweat more. Sweating is one of the main ways that fluid is lost from the body. For this reason, it's important to make sure you are hydrated before using a hot tub, during use and afterwards.
To ensure maximum enjoyment and safety, here are some top tips for keeping hydrated in your hot tub:
This might sound obvious but making sure that you have water available while you're in the hot tub is a good idea. Take an insulated bottle with you so that the water will keep cool.
Having a surface to place items on while you're in your hot tub means that you are much more likely to remember to take drinks with you. A Spa Caddy is easily attached to the side of your hot tub and offers an ideal storage place for beverages.
It can be tempting to sit back and relax with a refreshing glass of wine at he end of a long day but you should always exercise caution with alcohol when a hot tub is involved. Although you may not notice it at the time, alcohol itself causes dehydration, so add that to the hot temperature of the water and you could be looking at a recipe for disaster. If you are wanting to drink alcohol in your hot tub, again make sure you have water available to top up your fluid levels.
Most fruits and vegetables have a very high water content, especially things such as watermelon and cucumber. This is another great way to get some extra fluid into your body whilst consuming your 5 a day!
We recommend that you spend around 20-30 minutes at a time in a hot tub. This will vary from person to person but just as a guide, you should probably think about exiting the hot tub after this time and then returning after a short break. This break time is a good opportunity to replace some of the lost fluids before re-entering.
Using a hot tub should be a pleasant experience and by keeping a check on your hydration, there's no reason at all why it shouldn't be.
Hot tubs offer a range of health and wellbeing benefits, so be sure to incorporate it into your daily routine to get the most out of it.
You may not realise it, but where you position your hot tub is actually a very important consideration. The correct positioning will not only ensure you get the most use out of your hot tub but also make it easier to maintain.
One of the biggest concerns for people considering buying a hot tub is the maintenance. In reality, if you keep on top of it, keeping a hot tub in tip top condition requires minimal effort.
We all know that lack of sleep can leave us feeling groggy, lethargic and unfocused, especially if it's a regular occurrence. A long soak in a hot tub can drastically improve the quality of your sleep thanks to the soothing benefits of warm water.
We all know how important it is to keep our bodies hydrated and conversely, the dangers of dehydration. If you're using a hot tub, it's important to take extra care to ensure that you stay hydrated.
