Something tells me that your tub could use a little love. I said tub—get your mind out of the gutter. If you have a bathtub/shower hybrid, then you likely just stand in your tub for rapid rinse-offs. But don’t take that bathtub for granted. It’s worth giving it a scrub down, polishing it, and using it as it was intended. I know we all get incredibly busy, and taking a bath feels like the least time-efficient way to get clean. But baths aren’t just about getting clean. There are a lot of therapeutic benefits that come with sitting in the bath. And, perhaps the very fact that they take longer is a part of their charm: don’t we all rush around too much today? There are certainly more costly, and less healthy ways to unwind than the tub, so give it a chance. Here are the reasons you should take more baths.
You’re removed from obligations
You won’t pass by a stack of bills that sends you into an hour-long customer service call. You can’t even answer your phone because you’d risk dropping it in the water. Your laptop has no place in a tub. A bath removes you from obligations for a little while.
