Tip & How-To about Health & Beauty
Showers might be more practical, but there's nothing more relaxing than a hot bath at the end of a long hard day.
Here are some of the benefits that emersing yourself in a long slow bath can give you.
Try esssential oils, added to your bath water to relax both your body and your mind. Get advice from someone who understand essential oils so that you use the right one for you. Something like eucalyptus oil is great for helping with colds and congestion.
It's not just a myth. Scientists have proved that having a hot bath will help you get a better night's sleep with less interuptions.
Insomniacs sometimes say that taking hot baths before bedtime is the only way they can fall asleep.
This is especially true for mothers and busy working parents. All day we have demands on our time. The phone never stops ringing or we have work pressure. But soaking in a hot bath is a great way not only to switch off the world around you but to find a space to be alone. Some people like to put music on but many just enjoy the rare silence and peacefulness that comes with lying under hot water in the bath.
Apparently, taking baths can actually lower your blood pressure and stress levels. Possibly it's related to the way that your mind can really switch off and wander as you lay back in the bath.
Give it a try - you've got nothing to lose and a lot to gain.
