We live in a very busy world. The kind where we are constantly chasing things or they’re chasing us. And sometimes, it can get really overwhelming to the point where all you want to do is kick back, relax, and block out the world. And what better way to do that than build yourself a bath sanctuary? If you’ve never done that before, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. If you’ve done it before, you know how much it can benefit you. Here are some ways to a bath can lead to serenity.

Prepare Your Bathtub

The first step to creating the best bath sanctuary is to prepare your bathtub. You should clean your bathroom—get rid of the extra clutter and fold the towels. You can also add a bit of plants to make the place look more aesthetic. Next, clean the tub. Make sure that nothing remains there. A clean place will help you distress. Finally, you can fill it with water. However, the key here is to make sure that the water is at the right temperature. You don’t want it too hot or too cold as that could mess with your mood.

Light Some Candles

If you love aromatherapy, you should light some scented candles. It will set the mood for relaxation and fill the area with a wonderful scent. Of course, if you’re not into aromatherapy or the smells simply annoy you too much, you could just get candles to light up the room. Just switch off the lights and enjoy the warm glow from the candles—it will only add to the ambiance.

Physical and Digital Silence

One way people can ruin their bath sanctuary is to use their phones and scroll through social media, catch up on emails, or simply talk to people. If you have the choice, don’t do it. You can keep your phone on silent mode or switch off your phone so that no one can disturb you. Remember, this is your me-time. It’s best not to allow other people to intrude as it would take away from your relaxation.

Enjoy Some Snacks

A bath sanctuary is simply incomplete without some snacks. Use this time to indulge in some snacks that you have been saving. It could be a decadent piece of chocolate that you have stored away. White chocolates are probably the most popular snacks to eat while soaking in a hot tub. You’re free to eat any kind of snack, but it’s probably best to avoid things that might crumble in the water. You really don’t want to dirty your bathwater after creating such a serene environment.

Read Your Favorite Book

Do you enjoy reading books? Are you one of those people who can disappear for hours while reading a book? Well, good news for you. A bath sanctuary is a perfect time to devour the book that you have been wanting to read for so long. If you’re not into reading books, try grabbing a fun magazine and flipping through it. You’re sure to enjoy yourself.

Open the door to your Creativity

The serenity of the bath can get your creative juices flowing, so be sure to capitalize on the opportunity. Paint, or color. Of course, it would seem a bit unconventional but people tend to get creative. You can also bring some crystals in the bath to really get comfortable. The possibilities for you are limitless.

Take a Break from the Family

When you’re preparing your bath sanctuary, be sure to tell your family that you are not available for the next couple of hours. One of the ways to ruin the serenity of the bath is by interruption.It’s best not to have your children or spouse knocking on your day, screaming at you, or trying to get your attention. Your me-time should not be compromised. Although it may not seem like much, continuous interruptions can compromise your health and now allow you to de-stress the way you should.
