Remember the joys of bath time when you were little or when your children were little. There were bubbles and toys and lots of giggles.
Most of us don’t have time for a leisurely bath today. A shower is quicker, easier and a whole lot simpler. With chilly weather approaching, nothing sounds better than warming up in a nice hot bath.
Today is the day to slow things down a bit and indulge in one of life’s simple pleasures. It is Bathtub Party Day. So you may set up a party for one. Or it may be an intimate party for two. Or if you have a hot tub on your back deck, it may truly be a party for your friends.
Beverly’s Hot Tips To Build Resiliency and Celebrate Bathtub Party Day:
- Turn off the phone and turn on the music
- Light a few candles and turn the lights down low
- Add your favourite scents to the water
- Relax and let the warmth and the relaxation flood over you
- Taking a bath is a natural way to induce sleep.

And if a bathtub is not your thing, consider this. Part of the S-O-S Principle that I developed involves finding strategies that get your mind off of the stressful situations around you. These techniques may be our hobbies such as gardening or wood working or it may be activities such as karate or running. It may be downtime relaxation strategies such as deep breathing, yoga, hot shower or a hot bath. The key is to find something that works for you.
