The Anti-Aging Machine

Besides being a source for relaxation and leisure, hot tubs provide health benefits that optimize health in the long run and help reduce joint and muscle pain. Hot tubs are really an anti-aging machine, reducing stress (the silent killer) will allow you to live a fruitful life. Combining a healthy lifestyle, with a balanced diet and soaks in a hot tub several times a week can assure healthy aging.

September is Healthy Aging Month, encouraging adults over the age of 50 to think positively about moving forward and taking up activities that will help them age in a healthy way. It’s never too late to improve one’s physical, mental and social well-being through new ways of exercise and relaxation. A hot tub will benefit adults over the age of 50 by providing the following specific benefits from hot tubbing:

Improved Sleep – It is recommended that the average healthy adult get about 8 hours of sleep every night. Deep-sleep is needed for your body to repair itself from a busy day. The warm massaging jets can help relax your body before a goodnight’s sleep.

Improved Circulation – While in a hot tub, your blood vessels will widen and blood circulation will improve promoting the delivery of nutrients throughout your body. The increased circulation, referred to as vasodilation, leaves skin looking new and refreshed, and will appear younger.

Reduced Stress – Soaking in a hot tub 3-4 times a week is an efficient way to reduce stress which we all know can be detrimental to your health. The intense hydrotherapy a hot tub provides will 1.) massage muscles, soothing away aches 2.) warm water will increase circulation and increase flexibility in your joints 3.) buoyancy helps the mind relax.

Hot Tub Maintenance

Hot tub maintenance can be made simple by cutting it down to a 3-step system:

  • Balancing
  • Sanitizing
  • Shocking

Balancing spa water means that the water is neither too alkaline (high pH) which causes destructive scale buildup on equipment, nor too acidic (low pH) which may erode plumbing and cause costly damage to spa pumps, seals and heaters. Balanced water has a more pleasant feel to the skin, and allows your sanitizer to work more effectively. Spa water can be tested by using test strips to check alkalinity on a weekly, or bi-weekly basis. Santa Barbara 22

Water sanitation is arguably the most important out of the 3-step system. Preventing additive chemicals can be made easy by implementing an ozone or salt water system to your hot tub. Not only will a sanitation system ensure that your spa water is always ready to be enjoyed, but it can also reduce the amount of chemicals used to balance or shock spa water. If you do not have a sanitation system, it’s not too late!

The most important thing to do in preparation for shocking the spa water is to first test the spa, and adjust the pH to the range of 7.2-7.6. Oxidizers work best in a low pH environment, and the efficacy of your spa shock is twice as great at a pH of 7.6, than it is at a pH of 8.0. When shocking the spa, be cautious when using spa shock, oxidizers can be dangerous when misused or mishandled. Different oxidizers have varying strengths – be careful not to overdose your spa shock treatment. High winds can blow spa shock right in your face. Gently pour it over the surface, and clean up any spills right away.

Another way to effectively maintain your hot tub clear of the elements is by implementing a diligent and form fitting spa cover. Find the perfect fitting spa cover for any hot tub brand at www.QuickSpaParts.com and limit the amount of hot tub maintenance you need to perform on your hot tub.calspasblogwinterbanner.jpg

New Year’s Resolutions

The beginning of the New Year is the beginning of a fresh start. It’s the time to improve yourself, make changes in your life and take control. This is why many of us see the beginning of a New Year as the perfect opportunity to make a resolution to kick those bad habits. Unfortunately, New Year Resolutions are much easier made than kept.08_FitnessBandsLg

How do you keep a New Year’s Resolutions?

1.) Set a realistic goal for yourself – Many of us will choose “losing weight” as our resolution for the New Year. Be specific, know what you would like to achieve. Setting goals for yourself will make your outcome more accessible.

2.) Only make one resolution – You only get one wish per cake, not candle. Don’t overwhelm yourself with resolutions. Set one primary goal you would like to achieve and stay focused.

3.) Don’t wait for New Year’s Eve – Setting a resolution is a commitment. Making a spontaneous choice will not achieve great success as something you take time to contemplate about.

4.) Baby steps – Slow and steady wins the race. Set milestones, this way you will be able to keep track of your progress as you achieve your goal.

5.) Learn from your mistakes – So you made the same resolution as last year, that’s okay! Do not make the same mistakes, instead let that be your lesson.

6.) It won’t happen overnight – Success takes time. Progress takes time. Don’t rush it!

7.) Don’t mind the small stuff – We all face small hurdles along the way, don’t let them bring you down. Dust yourself off and try again.

8.) Get support – Create a support system around yourself. Let friends and family about your goal and have them help you reach your goal. Teamwork!

9.) Motivation – Keep focus and motivated. Remind yourself about the goal and why you want to reach it.

10.) Always work on your goal – Once you have reached your goal, keep working to maintain it.

Holiday Decorating Ideas

Christmas is always a magical time of unequaled joy and frenzy, especially when it comes to decorating our homes. Every year year we try to outdo ourselves in decorating trees, windows, homes and yards that would instantly bring oh’s and ah’s from our guests. Because front porches welcome guests and may be the first impression that visitors have of your home, celebrate the season with a splash of Christmas decor on your front porch to delight the senses and spread holiday cheer. Follow these steps from Fresh Home to help you with that last minute decorating!

1. Twinkle, twinkle little… lights

Nothing says winter holidays like bright lights and no decoration is complete with them. They make the no. 1 choice in Christmas decorations whether you only choose to outline the front facing windows, to wrap porch posts or deck the entire porch with lights.

2. Stay green with evergreens

Usually made from evergreens, wreaths symbolize strength, as evergreens last even throughout the harshest winters. So what better way to welcome your guests than some nice Christmas wreaths hung on your front porch door?

3. The puny poinsettia is hanging his bloom…

Poinsettia plants are beautiful and in ample supply during the Christmas season whether real or faux. Natural poinsettia won’t survive a cold winter on a porch, but you may choose to display them at the front facing windows. Artificial flowers however will offer the same appearance with the ability to withstand the cold so choose artificial poinsettias to add to decorative flower pots and create a floral arrangement that will look great on your porch.

4. Welcoming doormats

A doormat may be seen as an insignificant detail in the overall Christmas decor but a welcome mat on your porch serves three purposes: visitors can wipe their feet and keep them clean before entering your home; a Christmas mat offers a touch of color; and preserves the consistency of the entire decoration. Choose a mat that is sturdy to stand up to traffic but is attractive and suitable in appearance.

5. Let the garlands of Christmas be evergreen

Wrap pine garland around pillars, posts and handrails. They have the advantage of looking very good with a variety of other decorations. You may wrap them together with lights or top them off with festive red bows. You can also drape garland on railing and from underneath the porch ceiling for a classic look.

6. Merry Christmas everyone…

If you have a swing or some type of seat on your porch, look for a “porch sitter.” A stuffed reindeer, Santa Claus, snowman or some other type of porch sitter can add a bit of whimsy to your porch decor. You can always add a personal touch by including a written welcome message, be it on a chalkboard surface or such ready-made ornaments.

7. Let the snow fall

Add fake snow, snowflakes or a stuffed snowman to your porch for a touch of whimsy. A snow shovel positioned on the porch adds a bit of fun and practicality. Go a step further by adding spray snow to the windows. Snowflakes are always pretty and may come in different shapes and even colours. They may be hung or taped to the door or windows.

8. Santa Claus is coming to town…

Santa Claus, his reindeers, Frosty the Snowman, the Grinch and many other such concepts make a great theme-based front porch design. Place a few different three-dimensional figures strategically on the porch to welcome guests and complete the look with coloured lights or special accents that match your chosen theme.

9. Light Christmas candles

Candles are an emblem of Christmas and are everywhere during this season so why not have them on your porch? Although there are some drawbacks in using them outside (they need protecting from the wind as they can easily be blown out and also require careful placing, out of the reach of children and pets), real candles have a lovely authentic feel which can hardly be replaced by electric Christmas candles.

10. Oh Christmas tree!

We definitely shouldn’t relegate Christmas trees to the living room space. A brightly lit outdoor tree, be it a cut tree that fits under your porch ceiling, or a live tree in a pot can invite added interest to a decorative front porch display. Decorate the tree with outdoor lights and ornaments and add wrapped faux presents under the tree for a complete display package.
