 101 Exercises for the Soul: Take a Bath: Maximize Your Relaxation Time (Exercise 38) 
 
Taking time to relax is one of the best self-care methods I know. If you have trouble resting and relaxing, remember — you are doing something when you rest. You are restoring and healing yourself and your life. What helps you to relax and take care of yourself?

Throughout history, baths have been a universal means of renewal and cleansing. Set aside an afternoon or evening and create a warm, healing bath for yourself, and consider incorporating a soothing bath in your weekly routine.

Make this bath more than the usual scrub. Incorporate therapeutic herbs, minerals, and bath salts, which can remove your body’s impurities. Add soaps and oils with special scents and aromas to help you to relax. Candles and soft music are other ways to pamper your senses, and if you can, try an outdoor tub and add the healing sounds and scents of nature. Or, make this bath all about play — fill the tub with bubbles and give your inner child a squirt gun and some rubber ducks to play with. As every kid knows, bath time is play time.
