The Benefits of Including Bath Time In Your Self-Care Routine
Many of us are hard-working professionals, and we live in a society where we are taught to work hard, hustle, and become great. However, it’s time to rethink that approach to become our best without sacrificing our whole body’s health. It’s a myth to think that there cannot be harmony between being a go-getter and taking care of yourself, and I know we can have it both ways and feel our best. So, when it comes to our personal lives, it’s time to make it a priority. Your mind, body, and overall health are essential to true self-care, and finding the proper self-care routine, such as baths, can be highly beneficial.
Benefits of Bath Time
Including a bath time as part of our self-care routine helps to achieve harmony between achieving our dreams and making sure we feel our optimal best with rest, fun, and self-care. The benefits of a bath are worth the investment of consistently making it a priority. For instance, a study clearly shows an incredible amount of benefits to taking a bath versus a shower. The study concluded that the scores “were significantly lower for tension-anxiety, depression-dejection, and anger-hostility during bathing intervention than during showering intervention.” Below are five ways to add a little spice to your routine and make it your own perfect time to get some of the many benefits.
Here are five ways to create that perfect bathtime routine.
