10 Ways To Use Your Hot Tub While Self-Isolating

During this current period of self-isolation and social distancing, soaking in your Sundance Hot Tub can help you deal with the cabin fever you may be suffering. Here are 10 ways to enjoy your hot tub during self-isolation that we hope you will enjoy long after this difficult period comes to an end!

1. Read a Good Book

With lots of people suddenly finding themselves with a lot of time on their hands, lots of books are being read. Sitting on the couch and reading is fine, but why not up your game and read while enjoying your hot tub? You will feel completely re-energized, relaxed and inspired as you enjoy a traditional book, eBook or magazine article in the comfort of your Sundance hot tub.

Reading can take you into another world and really help get your mind off your current problems, even if just for a while. Want to take an extended break from being indoors? maybe now is the time to dust off that copy of War and Peace you have always been meaning to read!

If you are using your smartphone or tablet, remember that the SmartTub Cellular Control System can be used to operate your Sundance Spa. Having SmartTub means you don't have to move out of your favourite hydrotherapy seat to change water temperature, turn jets on \ off or adjust your LED lighting.

2. Relax with Music 

Another great way to relax mind and body is listening to your favourite music. The Sundance Spas optional BlueWave Spa Stereo System is Bluetooth enabled, so you can play your best playlists through your smartphone or tablet.  Whether you want calm instrumental music, pop, rap, indie, or classical, it’s all about finding the right songs to really make you happy in these trying times.

3. Make a Telephone or Video Call

Many people are getting used to the new dynamic of working at home, so why not set up your office out doors and make some calls or attend an online meeting from your hot tub? It will certainly make you stand out, and give your colleagues a good laugh which they could all probably use right now.

Lots of us are using video calls to keep in touch with friends and family, and apps such as FaceTime, Zoom, Skype & Facebook Messenger give us the ability to still enjoy a hot tub party without breaking any social distancing protocols!

4. Water Exercise & Hot Tub Yoga

A Sundance hot tub is for more than just relaxing, You can also exercise in it. Working out in water is a low impact way to build strength and improve flexibility. If you prefer to stick to your traditional work out, jump in to your hot tub afterwards as it helps to increase blood flow, stimulate healing, and relax tight muscles.

Hot Tub Yoga is quickly becoming a new form of relaxation, meditation, and a beneficial method of improving your overall health at any age. 

 If you’ve ever been interested in trying out yoga, but were worried about the impacts of the pressure and weight on your joints, hot tub yoga might be the perfect solution for you.

The natural buoyancy of water in your hot tub takes pressure off your joints, reducing the impact and alleviating pain and discomfort. Warm water also helps soothe muscles, enhancing your flexibility and making your yoga poses more effective, even as a beginner.

Meditate Yoga Hot Tub Optima


5. Meditate

Sometimes it’s nice to turn off the TV, mute your cell phone, and embrace silence. Just lay back and let your mind be free! There’s no better way to kick start your day than meditating in your Sundance Spa. The warm water and soothing jets will help you relax and prepare for the day. 20 Minutes in your Sundance hot tub before bed will also help you clear your mind so you can get a restful nights sleep. Enjoy the Silence!

6. Enjoy the Benefits of Aromatherapy

The warm and soothing water jets of your hot tub are about as relaxing as it gets. You can improve the experience though. Try adding some Spazazz Aromatherapy Crystals or SunScents Aromatherapy Beads to enhance your Sundance hot tub experience and stimulate your senses.

The effects of aromatherapy are experienced through the sense of smell which is linked to the deepest parts of the brain governed by your basic instincts, thoughts and emotions.


On a physical level, aromatherapy can help to ease muscular aches and pains, improve circulation, ease sinus congestion and act as a strong antioxidant.


7. Play Games

There are several fun games that your can play in your Sundance hot tub, even on your own! We have waterproof playing cards available. Use a spa tray or spa caddy to keep everything in order and challenge yourself to a game of Solitaire, Patience or Spider.

Hot Tub Pong is another good option for keeping yourself entertained for hours in the hot tub!

8. Watch a Show or Movie

I am sure that most of us are watching way more shows and movies than normal as we hunker down at home. Still have a few episodes of Tiger King or Ozark to watch? why not enjoy them from the comfort of your Sundance hot tub?

Set up your outdoor TV, or project the movie on to your hot tub cover! Self-isolation will feel less like a chore if you are kicking back in your hot tub, letting the warm water and jets work their magic as you enjoy your favourite movie or TV show!

9. Watch Wildlife and Admire the Stars

If your Sundance hot tub is located outside in the yard, you have the perfect opportunity to watch wildlife. Soak in the sounds of nature and watch the greenery around you.

Nothing says relaxation like stargazing on a clear, crisp night. The next time you’re in the mood for searching the night skies, do it from your Sundance hot tub. It feels amazing to be outside on a cool night, with your body immersed in hot water.

Use an app such as StarView, StarChart or SkySafari that uses your phone or tablet's camera to precisely spot and identify celestial objects in sky, day or night. Find your favorite constellations as they fade in and out while you scan across the sky, locate the Moon, discover distant galaxies, and witness satellite fly-bys. 

10. Have a Romantic Date Night

Instead of going out for dinner and a movie, which is a pleasure that is on hold for a while, why not have a romantic evening in your Sundance hot tub instead? Get some Uber Eats or Skip The Dishes delivered and enjoy your favourite take out together in the backyard.

Your Sundance Spa is the perfect place to spend some quality time with your partner. Pour some champagne, say a toast to love, and enjoy the evening!
