Self-care is one of the hot topics of the year. With so many of us working and living through strange times as well as facing personal struggles, taking time for yourself is so important. You might find it easy to relax or discover you don’t always have the time. One of the best ways to give yourself some self-care is with a great shower!
You might think you’re getting the most from your shower time. Maybe you’ve got a typical ladder towel rail which keeps your towel warm and toasty for when you step out the shower. Perhaps you’ve got under floor heating to warm your feet before and after your wash. Shampooing your hair, lathering up with shower foam, maybe even playing some music to sing along to. Shower times are good, right? The reality though, is that the relaxation you’re getting can be so much more!
Switch To Steam
You may have read all about the health benefits of steam. You can do more than just turning up the heat in your shower though. Insignia Steam Showers offer the luxury of a steam generator to fill your shower cabin with soothing steam. Did you know that steam can boost your immune system? It can help with stiff joints, help with breathing problems such as asthma and also increase your metabolism too. Steam can help to boost your circulation which can lead to lower blood pressure and a healthier heart. Don’t forget that steam can help the healing of broken skin. Not only are the health benefits of a steam shower appealing, but the design of the showers are also stunning. They come in a range of sizes and colours and you can use their online system to design your shower, your way. They even have twin showers for those who like to share!
Add Something New
The places where we wash can so often become just another room in the house. Somewhere where we simply hose ourselves down and then go and get dressed. As well as a super steam shower, consider adding something new to your shower room. When was the last time you bought some new towels? Treat yourself to some brand new ultra fluffy ones which will feel amazing and comfortable wrapped around you when you’ve washed. We mentioned music earlier, maybe add a new speaker to the room so you can really enjoy your music, be it whale songs or Wolf Alice. Do you have any artwork or imagery on your shower room walls? A beautiful photograph could help transport your mind somewhere else when you really want to relax.
Have you considered adding some essential oils to your wash time? This can aid your sleep as well as having anti-inflammatory and anti-viral effects. How often do you spend time in your shower room? Twenty-five minutes a day is almost three hours a week. That’s half a day every month! 144 hours a year, or in other words, six days a year. When you consider all those hours you spend there, make sure you enjoy every moment and invest in your shower time.
