Very often, on a daily basis, we don’t have time to spend a lot of time there. And sometimes you want to relax, but you have to 1 / find the time 2 / find the right time 3 / create an atmosphere conducive to well-being and relaxation. You cannot find the time for you, nor can we make sure that you are not disturbed during this moment just for you. On the other hand, we can give you ideas to transform your bathroom into a space of tranquility, the time to take care of yourself.
PUT CHILDREN’S TOYS AWAY IN THE BATHROOM
If you are a mom, your bathroom probably looks like an annex to your / your children’s playroom. They must be kept busy while they take their bath. On the other hand, so that you can relax the SpongeBob and the tanker truck of the youngest, it is not super recommended. Especially if you sit on one of the toys in the tub without doing it on purpose. It stings and it hurts. So before thinking about lounging in a good bath, you must, unfortunately, put away! A large bin or a fabric bag that will dry quickly to store and hide the toys and voila!
We also take the opportunity to clean up the many bottles in the shower and/or the bathtub. If it’s empty, it’s in the trash. Almost empty shower gel and shampoo bottles handy for quick completion, etc.
CANDLES FOR A SUBDUED ATMOSPHERE
Once you’ve made some room for yourself in the bathroom, it’s time to get down to business. And we start with the lighting. We forget the ceiling light that is used every day when you have your head in the ass in the morning. We will prefer warm and subdued lights. The fastest to set up: the candles. In addition, they are not bulky so they can easily be placed anywhere in the room: on the bathtub, on the washbasin cabinet, on the window sill. Just make sure that they cannot ignite the bath sheets or pajamas nearby.
SIT IN THE SHOWER
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a bathtub. In everyday life, this is not a problem, but a shower to relax is not the same thing. There are shower seats that will allow you to sit in the shower and enjoy the water jets that flow without getting tired. If your legs or back hurt, the stool will allow you not to strain and rest even in the shower.
PAMPER YOURSELF WITH PRETTY BATH PRODUCTS
On a daily basis, there is not necessarily time to pay attention to details and we use products without paying too much attention. Now is the time to treat yourself. Pretty bottles, it can mark the blow. And as long as you do, choose products whose smell reminds you of good times, moments of sweetness. The idea is to pamper all your senses: smell and sight. And once your moment of relaxation is over, store these products for the next time. It would be a shame if your teenager stings them on your back.
COLOR AND PERFUME THE BATH WATER
If you have a bathtub, you can think of a bubble bath or beads that color and perfume the water. Once again, the idea is 1 / change habits 2 / create a space filled with softness conducive to relaxation. If Zero Waste is an important issue for you, it is not incompatible with your moment of relaxation in the bathroom. Do not hesitate to consult the Apatride site which returns to the zero waste bath and which gives you its good plans.
WIPE WITH A SOFT BATH TOWEL
Always with a view to having a good time, you might as well do it gently. The bath towel that we use every day remains in its place and we take a new one, very soft. Often in spas, there is a large white or sometimes green bath towel in a natural spirit. They are always clean and cozy. You might as well duplicate this idea at home to perfect the moment.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PLANTS TO DO GOOD
In everyday life as for your moment of relaxation and well-being, plants have a role to play. We mentioned above, many spas play the card of nature in terms of decoration and plants are generally synonymous with well-being They renew the air, purify it. And even if you don’t realize it, you know it and it’s a pretty comforting idea. So to enhance your moment, do not hesitate to change your green plants in the bathroom and give them a new perspective to have the impression of being somewhere else.
TAKE THE TIME TO READ IN YOUR BATH
If you like to read, this is perhaps the activity that will allow you to get away from everyday life. But it’s always a little boring to read in the bath because you never know where to put the book when you are soaping or when you get out of the bathtub. There are plexi shelves the width of your bathtub so that you can easily place your book, your glass of vain, or even your tablet – if you like the risk – to watch a series on Netflix without being disturbed.
SOFT MUSIC TO SOOTHE YOU
We talked about the smell, touch, the visual. We must not forget to hear. And for your moment of relaxation, do not hesitate to turn off the radio which is great in the morning every day but which can seriously harm your relaxation. Choose a piece of soft and soothing music or why not a guided meditation session. Now you don’t have to have a lot of room to listen to music in the bathroom. A speaker connected to your phone, a web connection to Youtube or Deezer and all you have to do is enjoy!
PUT THE SMALL DISHES IN THE BIG ONES – EVEN IN THE BATHROOM
We finish this top 10 dedicated to the moment of well being in the bathroom with a general advice: Put the small dishes in the big ones. We just got out of the parties and the table, we just put the small dishes in the big ones because the parties are unique moments. Normally your quiet time in the bathroom is also unique and secluded. (Unless you are very strong and you manage to free yourself 2 hours of tranquility per week). So how do you put small dishes in the big ones? We can imagine a tray to put your beauty products and why not one or two macaroons. We can also imagine a wooden bowl for your bath salt – much nicer than the plastic bottle that usually contains it.
Well, we truly hope these 10 ideas will allow you to have a good time from time to time in the bathroom.
