Tub Therapy: Why Soaking in the Tub is Good for your Health
~ Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
Hot baths are your sweet treat after a long tiring day. No question there but did you know, hot baths come with healthy benefits that could wash those blues away.
In the study, researchers at the University of Freiburg in Germany assigned 45 people with depression to either soak in 40C water for up to 30 minutes and then wrap themselves in blankets and hot water bottles for a further 20 minutes, or take 40 to 45 minutes of aerobic exercise twice a week. Eight weeks later, those taking regular warm baths in the afternoon scored six points lower on a commonly used depression scale, while the exercise group scored three points lower on average.
Though there are participants who have dropped out of the study, still, it resulted that body temperature has a huge impact on our circadian rhythm. Other studies have also concluded that hot baths help in giving you a good night sleep through dilating blood vessels in the skin discharging excess heat. Keep in mind, it only works when the bedroom is relatively cool – about 18°C (64.4°F) cool.
Hot baths are one of the many pleasures of a man plus these benefits, taking the plunge would totally be worth it. To help you achieve that relaxing warm bath, here are 5 hand-picked bath tubs you could soak your worries into:
