Unwind and Rejuvenate: The Incredible Benefits of a Bath

2 min read

After a long, stressful day, it's not always easy to switch off and relax. If you're someone who often finds their mind racing, or if you're dealing with stress exacerbated by conditions like depression or anxiety, it can be even harder to find your "off" switch. But before you let your symptoms get the best of you, consider taking a hot bath for your mental health.

Research shows that there are numerous mental health benefits associated with taking a relaxing bath. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we're exploring some of these benefits that come with a long soak.

1. Boost Your Body Temperature

Raising your core temperature might seem like an odd benefit, but it can actually help strengthen your circadian rhythm and make you feel sleepier before bed. This is particularly beneficial if you're dealing with insomnia caused by anxiety or depression.

In one study, people suffering from depression were asked to soak in a hot bath twice a week for up to 30 minutes. After eight weeks, the participants' scores on the depression scale dropped by six points. So, the next time you're feeling overwhelmed, consider taking a stress-relieving bath and experience the immediate and long-term benefits.

2. Enhance Heart Health

Warm baths are not only beneficial for mental health but also for heart health. Chronic stress, often experienced by those with anxiety and depression, can lead to heart disease if not managed. Fortunately, a relaxing bath can help. Not only does it soothe your mind, but the warm water can also improve blood pressure and circulation.

3. Alleviate Anxiety with Bath Salts & Bath Bombs

By using a few bath accessories, such as bath salts and bath bombs, you can significantly reduce symptoms of depression or anxiety. Lavender-scented bath accessories are particularly beneficial for stress relief, as lavender is known for its soothing properties.

Bath salts, bath bombs, and even essential oils can all enhance your bathing experience and further reduce anxiety. For instance, Epsom salt can replenish magnesium, a mineral known to alleviate anxiety and depression by increasing serotonin levels.

Don't wait until your mental health reaches its limit. Make your bath a healing experience with Monsuri's bath salts and bath bombs. Stay ahead of your depression or anxiety and better manage your symptoms. Check out our range of productshere.
