When incorporating your spa into your backyard, see it as an accessory to your landscape. Don't just use your hot tub, personalize it and add that final touch to your dream oasis.

Make your hot tub an addition to your backyard with these easy tips and tricks:

Placement of your Hot Tub

It is important to consider the topography of your backyard. Make sure to place your spa in a flat area, that is not near dirt or leaves. Although a cover will prevent pieces of debris and dirt collecting in your hot tub, it will not provide the same protection during use. Time spent in your hot tub is meant for your to enjoy, not cleanup.

*Safety is Key

Pay close attention to areas in your backyard that could be prone to accidents ; do not place your hot tub in a dark area or on a smooth surface. It is more important to care for the well-being of your family, friends, and yourself—rather than aesthetics.

Plan Around the Overall Theme of your Backyard

In order to incorporate your hot tub into your backyard, make sure it fits with the overall theme of your home and outdoor living space. Radically different themes, will compromise the look and feel of your backyard.

Personalize Your Hot Tub

Take your spa experience to the next level by adding accessories that will accent your hot tub. Such as: gazebos, wrap around or stone decks, pillars, accent lighting, cascading waterfalls, or colorful spa lighting. *Decor tip: Add more depth to your gazebo with drapes.

Your hot tub can be used for more than just therapeutic and recreational purposes. With a few simple steps, your spa will become a piece of décor that will accent your backyard beautifully.

Meditation is a practice to induce the mind of consciousness. Sound complicated? Meditation is simply going into a relaxed state of mind to reflect and decompress.

Before I performed some research on meditation, I was under the impression meditation is a long process that requires a lot of time. Guess what? all you need is 30 minutes a day of meditation. Yes, just 30 minutes. I decided to try it out for myself for a month. That way, when I posted this article I could report my findings. After my research I found that: meditation has been a great addition to my lifestyle and has helped me quite a deal.

First, I made sure I was methodical about it. You cannot skip a day; you have to be consistent. How did I maintain this consistency? Well, whether it’s a full time job, a family, or just plain juggling your life; it’s hard to put time aside, right? I thought to myself: “in order to remain consistent, I will have to pick a designated time and build my schedule around it”. Then I thought to myself: “what about meditating before bed?” The arrangement worked our perfectly. I reflected on the day, and entered into a state of complete relaxation. It has even helped me sleep better.

Next, this is quite the obvious one: NO DISTRACTIONS. Turn everything off: that means detach yourself from your cell phone—from all electronics. I can’t believe I didn’t start meditating earlier solely for this reason! It’s great to get away from all that noise.

Alright, so consistency, silence, and no distraction; what’s next? Close your eyes, and take deep breaths in-and-out. Exhale the bad and negative energy, and inhale the good and positive energy.

Lastly, dress comfortably. This is important. You’ll be sitting on the floor with your legs crossed. The first night I decided to meditate in jeans; and I was squirming all over the place. So: sweats and a loose shirt.

That’s it! I got my 30 minutes of meditation in every day. And, yes I will continue meditating.

My research also found something else:

“Since then, studies on the relaxation response have documented the following short-term benefits to the nervous system:

  • improved blood circulation
  • lower blood pressure
  • lower heart rate
  • less perspiration
  • slower respiratory rate
  • less anxiety
  • lower blood cortisol levels
  • more feelings of well-being
  • less stress
  • deeper relaxation”[1]

Give meditation a shot! Just 30 minutes a day of  meditation, will make all the difference in your busy life.

Finding time to relax is key to a healthy lifestyle. Not taking time to recharge can be detrimental to your health. High stress levels can lower your life span and cause health problems. It is hard to find peace of mind with a demanding schedule, and/or a tight budget. Some people may feel their options are limited and purchase a spa membership to relax; however, that desire is soon shattered due to the busy staff, the abundance of people, and limited services. But, there is no need to leave the comfort of your home to unwind and reflect. You can treat yourself anytime of the day with an in-home-spa.

Your hot tub can be more than just a hot tub. Try these steps and turn your hot tub into the ultimate in-home-spa experience.

Lighting

Simply by dimming the lights, helps you be less aware of your surroundings and more inwardly focused. It creates a harmonious atmosphere to soothe the body, mind, and soul.

*Scented Candles/Incense

Aromatherapy, is practiced to improve the state of your physical and emotional well-being. Certain scents such as: lavender, camomile, bergamot, sandalwood, and mandarin help calm the nervous system and lower stress levels.


*Relaxing Music

Music affects thoughts and emotions. It has been proven music helps lower blood pressure, anxiety levels, and heart rate. Listen to tranquil melodies that will ease you into a state of bliss.

*Hot Stone Therapy

Hot stones help release toxins and reduce overall pain and stress. Many people who suffer from arthritis, use Hot Stone Therapy to relieve pain caused by the condition.

Use Basalt Stones for its smooth, light, and gentle texture. Before use, heat the stones in boiling water (and also to sanitize the rocks). Allow the rocks to cool to a tolerable temperature. Massage in a gentle circular motion all over the body; or place the heated rocks in areas where you experience pain; or in areas to relax tired and tense muscles.

Making time to escape the everyday stress life brings is challenging; however, there is no need to compromise to find time for yourself. An in-home-spa will provide you the flexibility to indulge at your leisure. You can easily create your private paradise without the hassle, cost, and time with an in-home-spa.

*Always take the proper safety precautions with fire. Never place flammable or easily ignited objects near fire ; have a fire extinguisher within your reach when using fire lit objects. Keep a distance of at least 5 feet from a fire; and/or a fire lit object. If the fire becomes uncontrollable, leave the area and contact the fire department immediately. Never leave your home with any objects lit, or left unattended.
*Never place electric objects near water or allow to become wet.
*Do not leave or use the rocks on your body for a prolonged period; apply in intervals to avoid burning of the skin.
