Did you know that over half of all Brits use the bathroom as an excuse to hide away from their partners or children??
I don’t know about you but my children will find me anywhere I go so I can’t do that but I do use my bath as a forced relaxation time. Since I’ve been unwell I’ve found it really hard to unwind and I’m retraining myself and my body to relax and bath time is my only absolute way of doing that. I HAVE to clear the bath of all bath toys – I can’t chill out with a giant turtle and 100 rubber duckies floating by and I normally like to light a candle and add some bath oils. I make myself stay in there for at least twenty minutes because apparently baths are not relaxing unless you are in for that time or more. I don’t mind a shower but typically I only shower on holiday or if we have been out somewhere muddy with the kids and I don’t want to sit in a bath of dirty water. We often share baths with the kids which they love and during pregnancy it was the only way I could find pain relief in the later stages.
Take a look at the research below from Bathrooms.com about whether people prefer showers to baths.. You may be surprised!
I’d love it if you could share your relaxation tips with me and enter my competition below for the chance to win a £50 box of Lush Goodies.. This is one you want to win. I have this box of goodies in the house and it smells divine.
