The Health Benefits of Baths

Full disclosure: I love me a good bath. It’s sort of vital to my existence. 

Baths are a great way to relax and unwind after a long day or as a soothing reward after a big accomplishment, or even just because. 

Are baths actually good for you? 

You bet your sweet bubbles they are! In today’s blog post, we discuss the health benefits of baths and why you should indulge in a warm tub today…or right now. 

Baths Help Our Minds

Research shows that having a bath can have a lasting effect on your mood. The comfort that comes with a warm bath can be very powerful, giving us womb-like security. That security has a strong positive psychological impact that has real staying power.

Baths also help us sleep better, and sleep is not overrated. Healthy sleep can produce good outcomes like the ability to better assess difficult situations and apply critical thinking. A soothing bath before bedtime can help your body and mind relax so you can drift off peacefully and enjoy some Zzzzz’s.

Baths are also known to improve mental health by reducing inflammation, which calms the nervous system and reduces stress and anxiety. 

Baths Do The Body Good

There are plenty of reasons your body will thank you for a bath. Not only does a bath feel great, but a warm soak encourages physiological health, as well. 

Taking a bath can improve blood circulation and increase blood oxygenation by allowing slower, deeper breathing. This may reduce inflammation and can ease stiff muscles and joints, which cause chronic pain. Additionally, baths allow our skin to hydrate, which is enhanced by oils and bath bombs. We are, after all, composed mostly of water. 

Additional Benefits 

Bathing can also help relieve cold and flu symptoms, burn calories, and even help keep your heart healthy, not to mention boosting your immune system to better help fight off viruses and infection. 

One More Thing…

A plain bath can be good enough, but just like pizza, why not add to it? There are wonderful accoutrements to elevate your bathing experience, like 🛀 SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT 🛀our Mom’s Escape Gift Basket, built in a paperboard travel trunk that begins with a bottle of Chardonnay and is filled with a bath pillow, eye mask, Himalayan bath salad, a cucumber candle, and much more. Did I mention that it’s the perfect Mother’s Day and that Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY? 

Whether it’s to soothe irritated skin, feel more awake, or just to feel pampered, taking a bath is always a good idea. Now go have a soak. You’ve earned it!
