Some people think that weekends are the perfect time to go into the bathroom and just enjoy a good long shower. According to them, it’s a way to cool down from the hectic week that just passed and prepare for what’s ahead. However, we here beg to differ: we think a good, long, peaceful shower or bath is perfect for any day. In fact, it couldn’t even be better to have one during the middle of a hectic work day, since it reinvigorates your senses and keeps you going throughout the whole week. Now, you might say that it’s hard to find the time to do that during spans of heavy workloads or projects, but believe us when we say that it does wonders for you; there’s no doubt about that. Like we said, it’s a powerful way of relieving stress, but it’s also a really good pick-me-up when you think you’re running out of steam.  So, having said that, here are a few tips to help you get that much needed Me time:

Man showering

  1. Get the Tools of the Trade

Ah, of course we have to start at the beginning. After all, you can’t have a proper bath without the necessary stuff you need. Here, we’re talking about going out getting yourself the perfect bath soap for you, perhaps those wireless Bluetooth speakers along with your relaxing playlist, and some scented candles to set the mood. Also, you also can’t underestimate the value of having the proper fixtures in your bathroom; a good shower head is the difference between relaxation and stress, so here’s the ultimate guide in choosing the best shower head in the UK for your pleasure.

  1. Scented Oils Help a Lot

So, you’re running the bath or the shower and you want to add more atmosphere to your whole session. This is where a bottle of some wonderful scented oil becomes important. Now, there are a lot of scents out there, so make sure you choose one that you’re willing to spend an hour or two smelling. Usually, people opt for Lavender, rose, and chamomile scents, but it’s all up to you; feel free to explore the perfect scent!

  1. Right temperature

Depending on the weather, you could either go for a cold or hot shower. But beyond that, just keep in mind that warm showers are perfect for easing muscle pain and headaches, while cold water is more suited for cooling you down and refreshing yourself.

  1. Get to it!

Remember all the stuff we told you to bring in? Well, it’s at this point that you have to make use of all of them.  Set the mood and find the perfect ambiance you want to have, be it relaxing or lively. Hey, as long as it helps you ease yourself, it doesn’t matter what it is. And remember: try your best to set all your worries aside while you’re here; those can wait until after you’re done. Right now, it’s all about cooling down to get that much needed boost.
