Take a Luxurious Bath

When we think of what it means to be healthy, we often think of things like working out regularly, eating nutritious foods, limiting alcohol, or avoiding harmful substances.  All those things are great, but we often overlook a critical piece of the healthcare equation self-care. 

Self-care tip number six is to do something very simple, treat yourself to a warm bath. For many, showering is our number one way of cleansing our body, but it may be time to pull out those skincare products you have been hiding under the sink and put them to good use.  Light a candle, diffuse some essential oils, play relaxing music that makes you forget your cares, and my favorites Anita Baker or Ed Sheeran.   In a world consumed by quick showers, a bath will help you to relax your mind and ease achy muscles.  According to Dr. Zack of the Cleveland Clinic, they also help you unwind as you prepare for a peaceful night’s sleep.  Baths are great for detoxing; add some Epsom salt or baking soda to your bubbles.

Taking a bath is a great tool to help you unwind from a long stressful day; treat yourself today and enjoy!

With peace & love,
