A lot of people have a soaking tub as part of their bathroom set up. But most people tend to just take showers and don’t really experience all that a tub has to offer. I recently realized how much I was taking mine for granted. I had just been hopping in and out of the shower for years, never taking the time to enjoy a real bath. So I decided this week that I would. And I did, twice. It was the most relaxing experience I’ve had in years. I realized that I was missing out on my soaking tub just because I didn’t want to take the time out to fill the tub and actually relax in it. But when I stopped running around for a few minutes and let myself just enjoy it, it was wonderful.
If you do invest in a soaking tub, make sure you take the time out to use it. Don’t let it just sit there, wasting away. It’s going to do and your aching muscles well. And it’ll help you slow down a little bit, enjoy the moment, before you rush off to do whatever is next on your agenda.
