According to the American Psychological Association (APA) stress keeps more than 40 percent of adults lying awake at night. This can lead to chronic sleep deprivation which can impair cognitive function, including memory loss, adversely affect health raising the risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes. Stress and lack of sleep can even prematurely age the skin causing fine lines, wrinkles, and a break down of skin collagen leaving your skin sagging and dull. It can also cause a sluggish lymph system which can lead to weight gain and cellulite. It's no wonder then, that stress can lead to depression.
One of the best ways to alleviate stress and facilitate optimum physical and emotional health is to make time to enjoy the solitude of a weekly restorative salt bath.
However, it involves more than running some water, jumping in the tub for a few minutes while doing mental gymnastics to organize this-or-that, and hopping out. A restorative salt bath requires setting aside at least 20, preferably 30 minutes, letting go of the here-and-now and slipping into into the warm, fragrant, mineral-rich salt water beautifully enlivened with the captivating scents of pure essential oils. It literally soaks away your stress and anxiety, rejuvenates your mood and revives your energy level while detoxifying your system.
Depending on your physical and mental/emotional needs, a restorative bath can relax, rejuvenate or revitalize your body and mind.
Taking just 20 to 30 minutes a week for a therapeutic and restorative salt bath can do wonders for your body, mind & spirit so take the time to relax, rejuvenate and revitalize!
