Planning A Winter Wonderland In Your New Hot Tub? How To Stay Safe During Your Winter Dips

If you're going to be buying a new hot tub, you may be planning on getting some use out of it this winter. While relaxing in a hot tub during the winter can be invigorating, it does take a few extra precautions. After all, you're going from freezing temperatures to hot temperatures in just a matter of minutes. Before you start using your new hot tub this winter, here are some safety precautions you should take.

Talk to Your Doctor First

If you haven't had a physical in a while, it's a good idea to schedule one before you start using your new hot tub this winter. There are some medical conditions that can make hot tub use risky for some people. For instance, if you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, or diabetes, or you're currently pregnant, you'll want to get your doctors go-ahead before you start enjoying your new hot tub.

Don't Immerse Yourself Right Away

Once you venture out into the freezing weather to get to your hot tub, you might be tempted to jump right into the hot water. You should avoid that at all costs. The shock of going from the cold to the hot could be hazardous to your health. Instead, take it slow and easy, a little bit at a time until your body has adjusted to the changing temperature. Once your body has adjusted, you can settle into your seat and relax in the nice hot water. Be sure to turn the jets on to soothe your tired muscles.

Avoid Adjusting the Thermostat

After you've been in the water for a while, it may feel like the temperature is going down. At that point, you may be tempted to adjust the thermostat a bit, just to get the water a bit hotter. You want to avoid doing that. The water hasn't gotten cooler. Your body has just adjusted to the temperature. If you start adjusting the temperature, you could end up with water so hot that it will cause injury to you.

Be Prepared for the Exit

You may feel like soaking in your new hot tub all night long, but eventually you'll need to get out. That's when it will be important for you to be prepared for the exit. As soon as you stand up out of the hot tub, that cold air is really going to hit you hard. Unfortunately, it could tighten up your muscles, and cause you some problems. Be sure to bring a warm robe and foot covering with you to the hot tub. That way, you can bundle up against the cold.
