Well…it’s New Year’s Eve. 2013 is just around the corner knocking on the door, and it’s time for that dreaded of traditions: making resolutions for the coming year!
Here’s some interesting info regarding resolutions: It is estimated that 45% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, but only 8% are successful in achieving them. BUT, here’s some good news: people who explicitly make New Year’s resolutions are more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t! (There’s a silver lining anywhere if you just look.)
What are the top resolutions most make every year? In 2012, they were:
- Losing weight
- Getting organized
- Spend less & save more
- Enjoy life to the fullest
- Staying fit & healthy
- Learn something exciting
- Quit smoking
- Help others with their dreams
- Fall in love
- Spend more time with family
Out of that list, did you know that items 1, 4, 5, 7 & 10 are all items that a hot tub, sauna or swim spa can help you realize? That’s half the list! Sauna use has been shown to help burn calories and lose water weight (#1). Using a hot tub, sauna or swim spa on a regular basis will help you stay healthy and fit (#5). Regular sauna use can help detoxify your body of the toxins that will build up in your system from smoking; using a hot tub, sauna or swim spa regularly will help reduce stress that could make quitting smoking rougher (#7). It’s easy to gather together and spend more time with your family around a hot tub or swim spa, and a sauna is a great way to reconnect with a loved one (#10). And, owning any of our products will help you live life to the fullest (#4).
We’re certainly not going to coax anyone into making a New Year’s resolution you won’t keep…but, wouldn’t it be great to get together with someone special and make your resolutions together tonight in the peace & quiet of your hot tub or sauna? (There are certainly worse ways to ring in the New Year!)
Oregon Hot Tub’s wish for you in 2013 is a life full of new adventure, happiness and the rewards of better health. We hope to help you achieve those very things!
Happy New Year!
