I have never been much of a bath person however it is not for lack of trying. The movies as well as social media portray the perfect bath time rituals with candles and decadent bubbles. So, obviously, I’ve tried many times to create the perfect, serene setting for my bath: I lit my fragrant tea-light candles, put in my favorite bubble bath generously into my abundantly warm, oiled bath, folded my towel behind my head, and lathered on a rich treatment mask. I Inhale deep as I sit and sweat in my luxurious spoils thinking about all the goodness penetrating my pores. Then after an hour I get out of the bath fold myself in my fluffy gown and walk out the bathroom like a boss only to have my husband say, “Wow, all that effort for just a 10-minute bath!”

Yip, you guessed it, for some strange reason I just can’t sit in a bath like that the whole time. I don’t know maybe I lack patience, or I procrastinate too much about all the things I still need to do and instead of the bath calming me down, it tends to make me feel anxious. I would much prefer a shower; in fact, I adore my showers. That is the time I sing like a superstar under my gorgeous, heated water spray and feel energized as well as refreshed, I guess everyone has a different vice that does the trick. Good showerheads play a very crucial part in my relaxation, the perfect pressure and spray range hit me in all the right places.
