Wondering why it's important to add baths to your self-care routine? Well, you have come to the right place. I think organizing self-care into your routines is essential so why not take a moment to add a bath to your list. It doesn't have to be every single day, but I want you to know the benefits of why you should treat yourself to a bath instead of a shower every once in a while.
Creating a Self-Care Routine
When you are thinking about self-care, there are a few things you can do to create your own self-care routine. Some may enjoy journaling, meditating, yoga or going out for walks. There is no right or wrong way of creating a routine for yourself. Make it your own!
For me, I love meditation and writing. Some days I want to dance or sing. So, make your own what best fits your lifestyle. It is all about taking care of your body and your mind. So here are some ideas you can try:
- Get yourself a therapist
- Call or sit down with a trusted friend or family member to talk about your feelings
- Write in a journal
- Read a book
- Go for a walk or exercise
- Connecting with friends and family
Soaking in a bath
Why Baths are Important & Their Benefits.
Many may only think that having a bath over a shower is only for occasions to unwind and relax your body or sore muscles, however, that is not the only benefit of baths. They are great stress-relievers and are good for your skin
According to Pentucket Medical Online article - 10 Scientifically Proven Health Benefits of Taking a Bath, here are some of the benefits included:
- Improve your heart health
- Help you to breathe easier
- Benefit your muscles, joints and bones
What should be included in your bath
Every bath would not be complete without a bath bomb, bath soap and bath salts. These are essentials to make your bath extra luxurious. Add a candle or salt lamp to set the scene. Think about getting yourself a bathtub caddy tray to hold your drink, tablet or your book of choice and maybe even a tall glass of wine and you're off to your own spa at home.
Gift Yourself A Bath Kit
Recently, I got to try Solitude Living's bath kits. What I love about this kit is that it is a complete bath in a box. What makes them unique and stand out is that they use ingredients like eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon, lavender essential oils and the ingredients are pre-measured for you.
The Solitude Living bath kit I decided to try is the cleansing DIP which is designed to provide smooth & refined skin. I was instantly intrigued by the ingredients of peppermint and tea tree essential oils because of their anti-bacterial and restorative properties. What you get in the kit is a bath bomb, a pouch of bath soak and a jar of bubble solution.
Why I love Solitude Living Bath Kits?
What makes this bath kit even more special is that all the kits are packed with a complementary unified scent and are designed to give you specific sensory benefits. As well, they have 12 variants of kits for every mood. So, you know that means you have the perfect bath kit no matter what mood you are in. No thinking necessary all you need to do is run the water! The price is reasonable. Plus, it also makes a great gift for loved ones to ease their stresses as well.
Are you ready to add a bath into your self-care routine? It may just be the best decision you have ever made in your life! I hope this article has inspired you to take a moment out of your week to soak in a bath.
