National Bathtub Party Day

Posted 12/01/20 by Jozlyn H

I am not sure who deemed Dec. 5 National Bathtub Party Day… but hey, a nice soak wouldn’t hurt any of us. There are tons of benefits to taking baths instead of showers. According to this article, baths could:

    1. Elevate your mood
    2. Help you sleep better
    3. Relieve muscle pain
    4. Make your heart healthy (reducing blood pressure)
    5. Burn calories
    6. Relieve cold and flu symptoms
    7. Soothe irritated skin
    8. Help you feel more awake

    Baths have become increasingly popular. The New Yorker says we live in “The Age of Bathfluence”. People are taking more baths. Bath bombs, bath salts, and bubble bath make it even better for some folks. So, let’s celebrate this day. Get your bath going, throw in something that smells nice, and grab a good book (but don’t drop it!)
