Below are a list of ideas that will help you set up a calming bath time;
SCHEDULE YOUR BATHING TIME CAREFULLY
If you're planning on taking a long bath, make sure you have plenty of time—a quick soak doesn't cut it when it comes to relaxation.
Don't rush it! You want to make sure that your body gets all the benefits of the bath without feeling rushed or hurried. So set aside extra time and make sure that everyone in your household knows about your plans for your ‘calming bath’ routine.
ADJUST WATER TEMPERATURE (WARM)
The 'bath' itself is the main star of this whole process.
If your tub is too hot or cold for your liking , adjust it until it is warm. You'll be able to stay in the tub for longer and enjoy a better experience overall.
But don't do it too long, or else your body will start to feel uncomfortable.
MAKE THE SETTING FEEL LIKE A SPA
Be imaginative; use items like candles to create a relaxing mood or play music that helps you relax before bed.
Adding essential oils can also be used to soothe your lungs. Some people like to add potted plants or simply petals for elegance (e.g. rose). It will be like taking a vacation at home!
