How Having a Luxury Bathroom Makes You Smarter and More Successful
Ah, stress. While the so-called “fight or flight” type of stress has its place, chronic stress is a serious problem that adversely affects our overall mental and physical health.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, long-term stress can contribute to serious mental and physical health problems such as depression, anxiety, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Signs of stress can include trouble sleeping, increased alcohol use, feeling depressed, being easily angered, or having low energy.
No one wants to feel stressed. For starters, it makes us feel lousy and anxious, and it often impacts our relationships with our families and co-workers. It’s safe to say that most of us want to be healthy physically and mentally. We want to feel well-rested, in control of our bodies, happy, and energetic. We want to be smart and successful, but if we’re out of sorts, ill, cranky, and sluggish, it’s hard to focus let alone give anything our best effort.
Dealing with Stress
Managing stress is essential for our overall well-being and for our overall success. To manage stress, the National Institute of Mental Health suggests: recognizing its signs, talking to your doctor, getting regular exercise, trying relaxing activities, setting goals and priorities, building a support system, and even considering participating in a clinical trial. This is all good advice, but how does a luxury bathroom fit in?
One of the most relaxing activities available is the tried-and-true bath. There’s nothing like the mental escape and sheer relaxation that sets in when you immerse yourself in a tub of warm water without any distractions. Soft lighting, relaxing music, essential oils, pleasant aromas, a refreshing drink, and beautiful, fluffy towels add to the experience. This ritual isn’t about getting clean (though that’s a nice side effect), but rather clearing your mind and body of the stress that’s holding you back and threatening your health.
Upgrade to a Luxury Bathroom
Having a luxury bathroom is like having your own private spa where nothing else matters but pampering yourself. Be sure to include a luxury bathtub to relax in. Every time you cross that threshold, you’re able to remove some of the stress from your life with a freestanding tub.
With the stress managed, if not shed completely, your luxury bathroom retreat will have given you a precious gift. Not only will it help you to become more relaxed and a more pleasant person to be around, it can help you to focus on learning and getting ahead at work. Hence, you’ll be smarter and more successful!
