Why is a bath good for you?
Baths can do wonders for the soul. Bathing regularly has emotional and physical benefits. Emotionally, bath can calm our minds, providing clarity, and helping us de-stress and wind down. Physical benefits include easing muscle tension, invigorating our senses, soothing the skin, and improving sleep. That’s why taking regular baths should play a part in your self-care routine.
