The Ultimate Guide to Hot Tub Stargazing
As you know, hot tubs are the ultimate way to unwind in your backyard. The comfortable and warm water helps to recover any muscle pain and gives you a chance to catch up with friends and family! But, if you’re looking to change up your date night, look up! Stargazing is a really great way to distract you from your daily routine.
Inviting your loved ones to sit under the stars is a great way to practice mindfulness and slow down your fast paced life. Bringing yourself closer to nature is one of the best ways to destress. We often think of enjoying nature during the day in the sunlight, but fortunately there is just as much to see at night.
Hot tubs provide the best way to stargaze, especially in the winter months!
Submerging yourself in the warm water while still feeling the brisk air is a great way to experience celestial events. If you really want to add to your experience, you can bring snacks, drinks, and music! Another way to unwind is with scents, many people enjoy putting approved hot tub scents in their tub to help relax and enhance the experience.
Stargazing is growing in popularity and the benefits can help explain why! Recent studies find that stargazing helps people feel peaceful, relaxed and in awe of the world we live in. This is the best way to unwind and forget your worries. Some people enjoy the feeling of smallness they get when looking in the sky, it is often described as soothing and a great way to relieve anxiety!
If you are new to stargazing, make sure to do some research! This could include downloading an app that identifies the constellations or looking online for some upcoming celestial events! There are many events you can look forward to, and a simple google search can help you find them.
There are always full moons, meteor showers, the international space station and more to look out for! In September the weather starts to change and if you are in the northern hemisphere the northern lights will start to be more visible! Here is a list of common constellations you should be able to easily identify:
- Ursa Major / The Big Dipper / ‘The Great Bear’
- Ursa Minor / The Little Dipper / ‘The Little Bear’
- Orion / ‘The Hunter’
