Gather Your Bath Salts And Bath Supplies Before You Begin

Before you begin, make sure that you are able to reserve some quiet time for yourself. This is a notion that is much trickier to accomplish than it sounds. Be sure to turn the phone off, turn on some soft music and light a few candles. This is definitely your opportunity to soak your stresses away and enjoy a bit of down time. Yes, it requires a little bit of preparation- but so what? Get ready to relax and enjoy your quiet time. Enjoying a soak with high quality bath salts or a nice bottle of bubbles can be the start of a relaxing day or evening. Some people prefer to use natural bath salts for their bath, while others prefer fancy bath salts that have fragrance additives or colorings to lightly color your bath water. Whichever you prefer, you are sure to notice that your bath is more enjoyable than usual with these simple additives.

When you're ready to go for a soak, be sure to gather all of your bath items, including a nice fluffy towel for when you get out. It is easy to ruin the process if you need to interrupt your time to grab forgotten items. In this instance, a little bit of planning can make the difference between an enjoyable tub experience and a stressful one. If you don't use bath salts in the tub, consider other bath items to enhance your soak, such as scented soaps or bubble formulas. It's hard to say no to a bubble bath with tons of bubbles! If you are looking to make your own bubble bath gift basket, your bath items can include a variety of items, including bubble bath, special soaps, bath salts or oils, miniature towels, washcloths or any combination of these items.

Begin to fill your bathtub with warm water. Adjust the water temperature to suit your needs and select the salt of your choice. It's a good idea to add the salts to the water while the tub is filling, as the water pressure will help to evenly distribute and break down the bath salts which will help you avoid sitting in a gritty bathtub. If you're adding bath bubbles, as the water is running, add your bubble bath under the running water to maximize your bubbles. You can add other bath products at this time. You might want to bring a book or magazine to enjoy during your bath. Once the bath has been drawn, use your hand to agitate the water. Run your hand along the bottom of the bathtub to ensure that all of the salts are dissolved. Finally, when you are ready, take a seat in the tub, and relax and enjoy your bath... you will soak your troubles away in no time.

When our schedules become too packed with things to do, we begin to feel the effects of stress with can affect our productivity in the long run. Taking a bit of time for ourselves for a soak in the tub can be a great way to get some "me" time while allowing us to relax, regroup and ensure that we are refreshed for the next day.
