Spending time in a hot tub before going to bed can lead to a deeper and more peaceful sleep. Lack of sleep can leave you feeling nervous, groggy and depressed or cause erratic mood swings. Because sleep researchers believe that insomnia can be traced to hectic, stressful lifestyles, relaxing in a spa regularly can help.
According to a study in the scientific journal Sleep, a drop in body temperature can also aid in easing the body into a relaxing and sound sleep. By taking a 15-minute soak in a hot tub about 90 minutes before attempting to sleep, your body temperature can drop to enable a better nights sleep naturally without the grogginess sometimes caused by prescription remedies.
