Reasons why taking a bath is good for your health

Taking a bath helps to relax, but it’s not the only thing it helps with. It also boosts your health. I can hear you wondering: how? Well, these are the health benefits!

  1. Brain

When you take a bath, your body produces serotonin. This substance ensures a good mood and because of this, you’re better at dealing with stressful events. Taking a bath helps you go to bed whilst feeling much more relaxed.

2. Sleep

In the bath, your body temperature rises, but as soon as you get out it also drops right away. Lower body temperature has been proven to help you fall asleep faster. Your body will then make more melatonin.

3. Anti-inflammatory

Heat stimulates circulation and soothes sore muscles. Your veins open and the blood can flow better. Taking a bath regularly can significantly reduce complaints such as headaches and sore muscles.

4. Detoxify

A bath can help detoxify faster. The blood flow improves, while waste products are removed faster. In addition, your metabolism will speed up.

5. Lower blood pressure

The heat from a bath helps to improve blood flow and circulation. This allows you to take a bath, which can be compared with a short workout. Research shows that a warm bath can lower your blood pressure.

6. Burning calories

It’s not that you don’t have to exercise anymore, but a bath can do a lot for your body. The consequences, such as better blood supply and circulation, are comparable to the effects of a short workout. So if you can’t exercise for an evening, taking a warm bath can be a great substitute.

      1. I mean, sure? I don’t mind honestly. I always take short showers anyway and shower once a week. Sometimes twice, depending. I just mostly use the sink to freshen up
