Baker Pool & Spa, a St. Louis hot tub dealer selling new and used Dimension One Portable Spas in the greater St. Louis area publishes 3 Tips for Getting Healthier as a Family the Easy Way.
“Family Wellness Month highlights the importance of healthy lifestyles on all members of the family, young and old,” said John McCormick of Baker Pool & Spa. “Total wellness encompasses mental, physical and emotional health.”
All are equally important in a well-rounded healthy lifestyle, and all three help create the environment where families can thrive and be happy. Here are three tips for getting healthier as a family the easy way.
Enjoy the Benefits of Hot Tub Therapy with the Entire Family
Having a portable spa in the backyard allows friends and family to all enjoy the relaxation and stress relief of hot water therapy together.
Hot tubs are well-known for their relief of tight or sore muscles.
The pulsating jets and hot water are great for that, but that isn’t all they can do. Not only are hot tubs great for sore muscles and joints, they encourage better blood flow and can be helpful in many physical and mental ailments.
A hot tub also promotes family togetherness. They are an instant draw that brings people together and a great way to spend the evening talking and enjoying family time rather than being split up in various rooms around the house.
Make Big Food Changes a Little at a Time
A lot of times, people don’t eat as well as they should simply because of old habits. Take a little time to make small changes in daily eating. It adds up to big health benefits in the long run and gives everyone in the family a chance to try new things a little at a time.
Encourage grabbing an apple or other piece of fruit for a snack instead of a handful of chips. Something as simple as switching out whole milk for 2% and gradually moving down to 1% and then skim milk allows family members to get used to the changes while getting healthier.
Have Fun Together While Getting Active
Make a habit of spending time as a family after work and school by playing games. Both outdoor activities and indoor fun are beneficial for families of all ages. Playing a game of catch, riding bikes together or simply taking a walk gets the blood flowing while letting everyone in the family enjoy the fresh air.
Pick activities that everyone can do regardless of age or physical limitations. When weather or time of day require indoor activities, don’t discount the benefits of board games. They are fun for everyone, and they promote mental health for everyone from the youngest family member to the oldest.
To encourage people to check out the benefits of owning their own hot tub, Baker Pool & Spa will be providing free test soaks for local residents all month long. They do recommend, however, that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute soak call the company ahead of time to reserve their spot.
