Harmony is one aspect in life that is difficult to achieve. To achieve it, one must learn balance between work and leisure. Like any scale, if a certain part contains more than the other, it will tip off the scale – in life, you are the scale.
Nothing comes close to the relaxed and fresh feeling that a warm bath provides. Because we are so busy with our everyday tasks, we tend to forget how to unwind and see sleep as the only means to revive our strength for the next week’s work schedule.
The bathroom can be a sanctuary where you can ease off tired muscles and let the tiredness of the week’s workload’s effects slowly dissipate. Do not worry that your bathroom is a small one. You can always have it re-arranged looking like a spa to further enhance your bath time comfort and relaxation. Here’s how:
If you have a bath tub, purchase some bath scents or essential oils the next time you drop by the grocery store. Choose the types that emit scents of relaxation to reduce the stress that you feel. You can also opt for richly scented candles that permeate the room with desirable scents without even lighting the wick. Intensify the scent of lighting one candle. To avoid disappointing yourself, make sure that the supplies you will need to afford a relaxing bath are readily available. Stock supplies up for a week or two, depending on your usage. Wholesale candles are much cheaper when purchased in bulk, which is a good way of limiting your expenses aside from assuring having a continuous supply of bath essentials.
The bedroom and other areas of the room that provides privacy can also furnish you a place to let aching and stiff muscles to relax. People who are busy with their careers rarely had the time to loosen up even if they cannot afford the financial aspect of it. Time is one facet of a career person’s life that is almost always used up such that relaxation comes last on the list and frequently, forgotten.
Many people do not see that the home as a place to unwind, simply because they have children who at times, demand their time and attention. Sometimes, when children are still young, the home environment can only be quiet when the kids are all asleep. An individual who works so hard and goes home too tired or strung up to get a restful sleep, find it hard to do so – even if everyone is fast asleep. This is because the muscles are so tight and the brain is so stimulating for processing and thinking that even if the eyes wanted shut down time, you still cannot sleep. Your brain is so worked up to relax.
Have you ever experienced sleeping on your work clothes, and waking up with them? You felt so tried that all you want to do is lie down. However, did you notice how some parts of your body still ache even if you were able to sleep? You can feel this at the back of your head or the nape, shoulder blades, your arms and sometimes at the hips. People who work in offices and spend long hours facing the computer experience this as well as a dull yet noticeable soreness of the wrist.
If you have the budget, renovation can be a source of joy. Having your own bathroom can help you ease down on a warm bath tub to ease your aching muscles at the end of the day. This way, you don’t have to wait for the person in the bath to finish before you afford yourself the much needed time out. Sometimes having a beautiful and inviting bathroom makes it easy for an individual to relax easier. You can add some soft music to play to help for relaxation as well as your favorite books carefully set in the bathroom to afford the relaxation you need.
For anyone to be able to function at their optimum level, one must find time to ease off the day’s work, no matter how short the time. It’s not the length of time that you give yourself a break, but the quality of it. Relaxation should be an everyday routine of an individual who spends most of his daytime highly strung up with work stress. It will help him prepare for the next day by resetting the brain and relaxing the body. If having your own bathroom where you can relax is not possible, you can always go to your health club to get that awesome massage.
