Yet, if you’re anything like me, you won’t find much time to do this – and when you do, you’re in an out within 10 minutes because you’ve either got the water too hot or you’ve got something you need to do and haven’t left yourself enough time.

However, I’m here to share with you some wonderfully indulgent tips for bath times that’ll have you making that time for yourself at least once a week!

Make It Mindful
It’s easy to quickly run the bath, pour in some bubbles and jump right in. But that’s not going to do a lot for your mindfulness.

Instead, take some time while you’re running the bath to create the perfect ambience.
This means getting rid of those kids’ toys and that overflowing laundry basket, dimming lights, lighting candles, and adding essential oils to really add to the overall experience. For example, Neom Organics offer a range of bath and shower drops that are designed to de-stress you and help you relax and unwind.

And once you’re in the bath, take some time to close your eyes and focus on your breathing. This will help clear your mind of those day-to-day stresses, instantly relaxing your body.

Add Some Indulgent Touches
As well as those essential oils, bring some more indulgent touches to your bath so you don’t have to move for a long time. This includes a chilled towel that you’ve spritzed with the essential oils, a glass of chilled lemon-flavoured water and some of your favourite snacks.

Alternatively, if you’re getting ready for a night out or a relaxing night on the sofa, a glass of prosecco while you’re in the bath won’t hurt!

Greet Yourself with Further Luxuries When You Get Out
The indulgent feel doesn’t have to end as soon as you get out of the bath, either.

Before you get in, make sure you’ve left a dressing gown, slippers and some fluffy towels by the bath so you can wrap yourself up and continue to feel relaxed. Straight after your bath, it’s also a good idea to lather yourself in a gorgeous, scented cream as this will really bring the spa-like experience to your home.

As you can see, with these tips, you won’t be jumping out of the bath after ten minutes. Just perhaps when you start to look like a shrivelled prune!

  1. It’s been such a long time since I’ve had a bath as we don’t have a bath in our current property. These are great bath tips, I’ve bought a pack of bath salts to use next time I go for a staycation.


  2. I prefer showers, but, when I'm taking a bath is like you suggested. Candles, maybe even a drink, a book, luxurious bubbles, body lotion, slippers. A very SPA-like adventure that makes me unwind and enjoy it a lot.

  3. Excuse me while I cry. I don't have a bath. IT SUCKS! :(
