Hot Tubs And Your Immune System
Did you know that worry and anxiety can lower your immune system?
As we begin to practice social distancing, washing our hands frequently, not touching our face and spending more time at home, is equally important that we find ways to boost our immune system.
HOW CAN I BOOST MY IMMUNE SYSTEM?
According to Harvard Medical School “general healthy-living strategies are a good way to start giving your immune system the upper hand.” The immune system requires balance and harmony to function well. Simply put, a healthy diet, laughter, stepping outside, getting enough sleep, avoiding tobacco and alcohol and reducing stress can all give your immune system a boost.

Most everyone appreciates the relaxation of getting outdoors and into nature. But what happens when you are hunkering down at home and unable to get out to enjoy the outside? That’s where a hot tub can help. No matter the weather, a hot tub can lure you outdoors, into fresh air, and maybe even a little star gazing. Oh…and don’t forget to plan a hot tub date night.
