OMG I had a 45 min bath this morning, which is a record for me. Partly because I was too busy with back to school schedule and partly because i’m slowly beginning to appreciate the value of a rest day (well morning in my case because its straight back to work after this blissful moment is over)
Did you know that the beneficial effects of exercise actually don’t occur during exercise, they occur after. So todays bath is paired with Oh My Cream! Mood Cleansing Ayurvedic Bath Soak which is perfect for detoxifying the body and relaxing aching muscles.
Detoxifying your body is essential for staying young, happy, and healthy, as well as for fat burning! Which is why I’ve included weekly baths in my weight loss journey.
My reasons for using this Bath Soak is because it contains Himalayan salt crystals, known for their ability to reduce muscle tension and stress and to create a calming, relaxed atmosphere. This mix of Ayurvedic plants and fruits (lemon grass, grapefruit, neem, holy basil and turmeric) makes the legs feel lighter, relaxes the muscles and diminishes redness. Finally, sweet almond and jojoba oils leave the skin soft, nourished and shiny after a bath.
By taking care to pair your exercise sessions in a way that maximises work days and recovery days, you will be able to keep your metabolism healthy and functional. Add some bubbles, candles and your favourite podcast to complete the experience, but just make sure to schedule in some down time with YOU. 💗
Wishing you the best health on your self care journey
