1: Relax by candlelight
To relax in the bathroom, it is important to give our senses soothing stimuli. We start with the eyes. In the average household, the bathroom is quite bright. If you have a dimmer, dim the lighting. What you can do is turn off the lights and place candles in the room. It is not without reason that it is something that you often see in spas.
2: Tunes to relax with
On our ears. More than we would like, music affects our state of mind. Particularly calm songs make you feel relaxed. If you relax when you can sing along with uptempo songs, go for it. Need some inspiration? There are real Spotify playlists specially composed for your relaxing time in the bathroom. Search in the “bathroom” app and make your choice.
3: In scents and colors
Scents can make you feel more relaxed in your home spa. Think for example of candles and bath or shower products with scents of lavender, eucalyptus, tangerine or chamomile. And don’t forget the calming scents (and colors) of plants. Atmosphere creators!
4: Natural materials bring peace
When looking at hot tubs, warm natural materials are often used. Something that is not for nothing. It unconsciously relaxes our body. You can think of accessories like a bamboo bathroom rack, natural looking storage baskets, a wooden bath mat and a natural stone sink.
Wood in a damp room? This duo can go well together if you know what types of wood to choose from. Teak, jatoba, iroko, merbau wood and bamboo (plant) do well in the bathroom. In order to enjoy your wood and bamboo items for as long as possible, it is wise to open a window regularly for ventilation. In addition, it is important that you wipe the items with a dry cloth to prevent water residue remaining.
5: Tidy is groomed
Tidy house, tidy spirit. A cliché that certainly applies to the bathroom. Make sure all strands and ends and (dirty) laundry are cleaned. Preferably keep the room nice and quiet.
6: soft towels
This is a very obvious tip: make sure your towels are silky. By wrapping yourself in a large soft towel, you spontaneously imagine yourself in a hotel. Put on a robe and slippers and you’re done.
7: Avoid crowds immediately
As tempting as it may be, try to maintain that relaxed feeling after your at-home spa ritual. Avoid reaching your phone directly. For example, dive into the wool early, read a good novel, or watch a series where you can reset yourself. Think about after your night’s sleep and give yourself time to recharge your battery first.
This way you can still start the new week relaxed.
