When we think of New Year's resolutions, we tend to think of things that aren't necessarily fun, like exercising more, managing stress better or eating healthier.

The key to keeping many resolutions is to give yourself the tools you need to succeed — and a hot tub might help you more than you realize.

Here are a few things to consider:

1) Hydromassage and hydrotherapy can help with pain. In fact, "20 minutes a day can relieve stress and tension, ease muscle aches and pains, reduce soreness and stiffness from many chronic conditions (including arthritis), decrease insomnia, even reduce symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes," according to Mainely Tubs. And with the cold weather upon us, aches and pains can become aggravated and more frequent and the warmth of a jetted hot tub can help soothe them away.

3) Hot tubs also can alleviate stress and headachesAccording to Lifehack.org: “By dilating the blood vessels, it can decrease pressure in your head which helps get rid of headaches while general relaxation and warmth continue the process. If you suffer from headaches then some good spa baths can help you fix it.”

Of course, if you have a serious medical condition, you should check with a medical professional to see if a hot tub or sauna could help your symptoms.
