When we meditate, we inject far-reaching and long-lasting benefits into our lives: We lower our stress levels, we get to know our pain, we connect better, we improve our focus, and we’re kinder to ourselves.

Meditation techniques can vary, but most will have these things in common and the good news is you can do them all in the hot tub as it is a perfect place for meditation:

  • It’s always done in a quiet place with no distractions.

  • You use a comfortable posture – sitting or lying down

  • You focus your attention – on a word or set of words, an object or sound eg. water, music, a body part, or your breath

  • You open your mind, meaning you let thoughts come and go freely without judging or stopping them

5).  Read a Book

A hot tub can be super-relaxing and reading a book while soaking in a hot tub can transport you to another world. You can pick up your favorite fiction book, a memoir, or the latest page-turner and enjoy the cozy feeling of reading in the hot tub.

You will do this with no distraction from others.

6).  Watch a Movie

You can set up your television or a projector at some distance from the hot tub and watch a movie while you are soaking in the warm water. Watching the latest movies can add to the atmosphere.

If you are a movie lover, you can relax in your tub while enjoying your favorite movie. Personally, I think it’s a good one considering I like watching movies.

7). Stargazing

If you are soaking at night, it’s a good time to enjoy stargazing especially when it’s a full moon. Most of us hardly watch the sky at night because we spend our evenings inside the house.

Using the hot tub at night is the perfect time to watch the milky way. This will be best accomplished if you have some good binoculars for stargazing with you.

Sitting in a hot tub at night is a great way to catch the sight of stars in the sky. You can spot constellations in the sky and switch off all the lights in your immediate area to create a serene atmosphere.

8). Take a Phone Call

You may not want to make that phone call into the office at 8 pm, but wouldn’t it be much more enjoyable if you did it while in your Royal Spa. All of a sudden that little annoyance turns out to be a relaxing experience.

Final Thoughts on Things to By Yourself in a Hot Tub

Soaking in a hot tub does not mean you have to sit in hot water and do nothing! You can enjoy all the above-mentioned activities and much more. With some music, food, and games, the number of activities is only limited by your imagination.

Having alone time doesn’t mean you are lonely and need company. Sometimes you actually need that alone time to help you in your self-discovery.

Just make sure you are properly hydrated before entering the hot tub and be sure you are medically safe to use a hot tub.
