For a Lasting Family Vacation, Create a Staycation

There is no doubt about it, American families work hard! Our daily lives can be so hectic that we often lack quality time with our loved ones, opting instead to shuttle kids to and from activities, work late and run errands. So, it is no surprise that most people look forward to a tranquil retreat from the daily grind. Mental health professionals agree that relaxation is essential to living a healthy and productive life, but it has become increasingly challenging to find the time and disposable income to plan extravagant vacations year after year. This is why many families are turning to the “staycation”!  And the Getaway Hot Tub transforms your home to the perfect staycation spot where you can truly relax and create memories to last a lifetime!


Sans Distractions

Mobile devices, although essential and convenient in many ways, are slowly taking the place of human interaction. Many of us are so busy catching up on work and play that we forget to regularly engage in meaningful conversation with our families. Your hot tub is the perfect place to connect with your family with limited distractions. Let’s face it, most people aren’t going to bring their mobile device into a hot tub unless they like to live dangerously! So take advantage of this “cell phone free zone” and bond with your loved ones.


Relax After an Active Family Outing

Many families like to take advantage of all their area has to offer during a staycation, as busy schedules often keep us from putting plans in motion. Whether it’s a hike, a trip to the city, the zoo or catching a nearby sporting event, no doubt everyone returns home feeling some level of physical exhaustion. What is better when you’re feeling this way than soaking in your hot tub and reflecting on the days’ events with your family?


Studies Show Hot Tubs Aid Sleep

Did you know Americans work an average of 47 hours per week? That equates to 6 days a week! And that American adults sleep an average of 6.8 hours per night, down an hour from 1942? In fact, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) calls lack of sleep a “public health epidemic”, so it’s no wonder that “rest” often tops the list as the purpose for vacation. A hot tub helps you catch up on that much needed shut eye. Experts claim that when your body is “comfortably warm”, you fall asleep easier and stay asleep which means you spend more time in restorative REM sleep. Because, during a staycation, your schedule should be relatively clear, you can be sure to grab your hot tub time before bed and chip away at some of that “sleep debt”.


These are just some of the ways in which a Getaway Hot Tub can make your home the perfect staycation spot where you can relax, unplug (just not your hot tub) and recharge as a family without breaking the bank! Find the perfect Getaway Hot Tub and start planning your staycation today.
