Nutrition is one aspect of good health. But health is multifaceted and includes lifestyle balance. Small, infrequent but challenging stressors, exercise and relaxation play into wellness outcomes. A simple bath can go a long way in ticking off the relaxation element of lifestyle balance. Bathing help in the reduction of stress, pain, depression, tension, anxiety and fatigue.
JUST 15 MINUTES A DAY IS ALL IT TAKES
There are both physical and emotional benefits to obtain from baths. Approximately 15 minutes per day in a warm bath can release muscle tension causes by every day stressors and wash away emotional dilemmas.
INDULGE A LITTLE MORE
Light some lavender scented candles, add a cup or two of Epsom salts to your bath, hit play on some relaxing meditation music and grab yourself a nice book and feel the tension escape your body.
Leave the bath feeling cleansed and relaxed. Rug yourself up with a comfy dressing gown and enjoy an uplifting cup of green tea or, if you are off to bed, try a chamomile tea to transport you into complete ZEN land.
This can become a fantastic routine for people who hold a lot of stress tension or who struggle to get a restful night sleep.
