The Benefits Of Taking A Bath

You might think a nice, warm soak with bath bombs is a treat you can only give yourself on the odd Friday night, but believe it or not, you’re wrong! Baths are actually good for your heart so don’t think of them as an indulgence – they can improve both your body and mind, helping you recharge on a regular basis!

Baths Are Good For The Mind

Bathing is the ultimate way to relax and calm the nervous system. A nice warm bath can reduce the levels of stress and anxiety in the body, helping to relax the mind and improve your mood. Studies have shown that it can have a greater effect on mood than exercise! This stress relief can improve your sleep by resetting your circadian rhythm (your body’s internal clock), making a bath the perfect tonic for when you’re having restless nights and early mornings.

Bath time is also the perfect time to practice meditation. You might think of meditation as something that accompanies your yoga routine, or an activity you have to do cross-legged in your living room, but the bath is the idea; spot. As your body slowly becomes one with the bath, you’ll find it easier to breathe and focus.

Baths Are Good For The Body

Baths reduce stress, but that’s not the only reason they’re good for you. Taking a warm (not too hot) bath will get your heart beating faster, and this can give your cardiac muscles a healthy workout. With your heart beating a little faster, you’ll improve your oxygen intake while the steam clears your airways – another way the bath helps your body calm down.

After a long day, a warm bath relieves sore muscles, reducing pain and inflammation caused by strenuous work. Depending on the size of your tub, you can also stretch in the water, giving low-impact resistance workout for your joints, muscles, and bones.

Soaking in the water is also very beneficial for your skin. 60% of our bodies are made of water, and so actually submerging your body in it can hydrate you inside and out. You can even enhance this moisturizing process by adding oils, salts, or naturally-occurring minerals to the water. This is where Jewel Within can help!
