Why an Evening Bath-Time Ritual Is the Truest Form of Self-Care
I am not usually a bath person; I lived in an apartment with a tub for three years and never used it once. However, in the midst of some recent anxiety and lack of sleep, I tried an Epsom salt bath and never looked back. Now, it's a regular part of my self-care, and here's why it should be a part of yours too.
For one thing, if you're living with other people, a bath provides a little bit of uninterrupted alone time, which comes at a high premium today. Plus, you can open a bottle of wine, apply a face mask, and soak, so you're getting in multiple self-care activities all in one. Hey, the fact that we have some time to devote to ourselves is an accomplishment in and of itself, we might as well make the most of it. Now, taking a bath is a luxury I'm fully on board with, and I highly suggest you embrace a nightly soak too.
