Quick Ways to Calm It Down: Take a Bubble Bath

The holiday season,  and particularly the weeks leading up to Christmas, can be full of to-do lists, stresses, disagreements (often petty), and a general feeling of hurriedness. Let’s calm it down.

Quick Ways to Calm It Down: Take a Bubble Bath

Feeling a little hot around the collar? Got some aches and pains that won’t quit? Do you feel like the lady in the Calgon commercial?

Take a bubble bath.

Hit the showers! Or better yet, get thee to the tub. A hot bath or shower can help you clear your head, relax your body, and help you feel a little more human.

It doesn’t take long. An hour would be nice, but if you can’t swing that, grab 20 minutes. You’ll feel better. You’ll be refreshed. And you’ll be a kinder, happier mom.

Need more motivation?

  1. We’ve been keeping our thermostat pretty low during the cooler months and I have to say, a hot shower has become my happy place every day!
