Why Stress about Holiday Shopping When You Can Soak Instead?

The holiday shopping craze is here.

Here's our suggestion: stay home and soak in the hot tub instead.

Make it a tradition

One of the best things about owning a hot tub is the time you spend in it with family and friends. So, why not create a tradition around it? Instead of rushing out the door to fight the crowds this coming weekend, how about kicking back in your favorite spot to relax?

Brew some coffee.

Scramble some eggs.

Grab a towel and invite the family out for a soak in your warm, bubbly spa.

Last year, we proposed this idea as a relaxing alternative to spending the day shopping. But let's take it a step further: why not make plans to do this every year? Turn it into a fun family tradition that everyone looks forward to.

Enjoy your time with those you love

If you have kids, this is a great time to talk about what they want for the holidays – or what they plan to give to others. Whoever the company is, the idea is to relax, unwind, and enjoy good conversation with those around you.

Eliminate stress, don't add to it

While you're relaxing in the hot tub, others will be running around, driving from store to store, lining up outside retailers' doors, spending money like someone is paying them to do it! Let's face it – holiday shopping is stressful. But it doesn't have to be.

A mountain of research shows that hot tubs help to relieve stress – both on your mind and body. So, why not spend this weekend doing something that makes you feel better, instead of worse?

Even if the holiday deals are important to you, remember that stores offer numerous additional sales throughout the holiday season. In many cases, the biggest savings aren't offered until days before Christmas. So, take your time. Sleep in. Keep the wallet closed and spend a laid-back morning in the hot tub with the people you love.
