This picture captured exactly what I would want to do during bath time. My thoughts run smoothly when I'm soaked and relaxed in warm water, blanketed with foam of my favorite bath scents from Baths and Body Works.
I love this scent. It is not too sweet smelling nor too musky. Sometimes I let my husband pick a scent for me. He is the one who smells me anyway.
Hot bath is beneficial activity for couples too. One primary requirement of choice of hotel we had on our first year anniversary was it must have a jet tub big enough for two. It was a very relaxing time for both of us giving us to have a more intimate talk of how our first year together went. We were too relaxed to care for any negativity :D
I asked my husband in his own words why hot bath is relaxing. Being a physicist and all of that, he explained it with more scientific precision.
The heat causes atoms and molecules to move freely or faster. So the warm waters loosens-up stiffed/tight cells, causing relaxation of muscles. I cannot verbatim-ly repeat it like I wish. But you get the picture
My circulation runs freely and my brain cells allows me to think clearly. Perfect time to write on journals but too bad there is no waterproof notebook to write on and using smart phone in the tub isn't very smart.
a health reminder!
If you have high, or low, blood pressure, a bath that is too hot may cause problems. Always cool down slowly after a hot bath. Allow the water to cool or add cold water slowly to return your body temperature and circulation to normal before getting out of the tub. If you have any questions about the safety of a hot bath based on your medical conditions, talk to your doctor.
However, it would be awesome to have a big computer mounted on bathroom wall and a water proof keyboard to write with.
What's the formula for your ideal relaxation?
