Bubble bath meditation isn’t just a recent wellness craze, but rather an age-old practice of self-care. Combine the art of soaking away your stress with the mindful practice of meditation and you can fully recharge both your mind and body. Add bubbles, bath salts, plus a meditation playlist and bath therapy is in session.
Not your regular bath
To help increase your focus have a quick shower beforehand, that way your bath is solely for meditation. Then, run your bath using hot water. Your body temperature will increase and turn your bath into more of a sauna. Keep a bottle of water close by in case you start to feel the heat.
Make it your own
This is where you can really make a meditation bath your own. Try the mineral blend of our Acai Berry Detox Bath Salts. Enjoy the effervescent nature of our Rose Bath Bomb. Small things can count toward a great moment of self-care. Don’t forget to dim the lights or light a few candles. Overhead, bright lighting can take strain on your eyes creating tension in your brow and temples.
The perfect playlist
Try to avoid music with lyrics as they can be distracting, and the purpose of bubble bath meditation is to focus your mind on positive and peaceful thoughts. Classical music or meditation playlists are usually best.
A moment of silence
Once in your bath, enjoy five minutes of silence and stillness. Relax and listen to the sound of the water, enjoy the tingling sensation of the bath salts. If you’re battling to switch off your thoughts, practice chanting. It helps your mind focus on a sound rather than those pesky thoughts about tomorrow. Once you’re out of the bath, bring your body temperature down by lying flat on your back on a towel. Enjoy five minutes of deep breathing.
When you’re feeling frazzled, out-of-sorts or over-worked, take time for yourself and work on reviving your physical and mental state so you can keep going. Small things, like bathtub meditation are easily done from home and a great way to focus on reviving yourself.
