There is much more beneficial way to relax in this face paced world and a hot bath could be the perfect remedy to relieve you from that stressful day, week or and even month. Here are 6 amazing benefits of enjoying a hot bath that will have you rested and ready to conquer the world.
1.Bathing elevates your mood : Obviously settling into warm water feels good, but that pleasure happens to have staying power. According to psychologist Neil Morris, who surveyed 80 people, bathing can diminish feelings of depression and pessimism because "Baths give you...a wonderful combination of isolation, quiet, and comfort." The feelings of closeness we receive from being submerged in warm liquid "gives us connotations of being in the womb, and it is very comforting," Dr. John Harcup, chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee for the British Spa Foundation, suggests. Overall, bathing induces feelings of comfort and easiness, and that kind of security allows your mind, and subsequently your body, to relax. 2.They Can Help You Sleep BetterThe benefits of quality slumber are widely recognized, but how to actually get an effective eight hours remains elusive to many. One enduring theory claims that a colder core body temperature will help induce sleep, which is why some scientists recommend going to bed in a cold room. But a warm bath before bed can yield similar results. At night our body temperatures naturally drop, which signals the production of melatonin—or the sleeping hormone. Soaking in a warm bath will raise your body temperature, and exiting will more rapidly cool it down, thus instigating the production of melatonin, and better preparing you for sleep. 3.A Hot Bath Can Help Relieve Muscle PainHeat will get your blood moving, which is not only great for circulation (more on that later) but can also help sore or tight muscles to relax. The addition of epsom salts in your warm bath has been proven to help reduce inflammation in your joints caused by arthritis or other muscular diseases. The anti-inflammatory properties of salt baths have also shown to have positive effects on people suffering from metabolic diseases like type 2 diabetes. 4.Baths Can Make Your Heart HealthyTaking a regular warm bath can help reduce blood pressure, according to some research. This is significant because reduced blood pressure can help in preventing more serious heart conditions, like heart attack or stroke. By using heat to induce better blood flow and circulation, you're giving your a body a mini-workout. Which brings us to... 5.Baths Can Relieve Cold And Flu Symptoms Steam from a hot bath works wonders for stuffy noses and bad coughs.

A temperate bath can also help your immune system to better fight off viruses.... 6.They Burn CaloriesSure, a soak is no match for water aerobics or active hydrotherapy, but a good sweat induced by a hot bath can burn as many calories as taking a walk. . #health #wealth #success
