Why You Should Take a Bath Before Bed

Why You Should Take a Bath Before Bed

Josephine Walters | May 5, 2016

Achieving a relaxed state of mind and body is the goal when looking to fall into a deep sleep, and a warm bath can help to achieve this.

The reason why is because a warm bath raises your body temperature. Since we know that a cool and dark bedroom environment is the best for sleeping, leaving your warm bath will actually immediately lower your body temperature. Plus, relaxing in a warm bath inherently lowers your heart rate and breathing. Therefore, you’re pretty much prepped internally to sink into a deep sleep.

Bath time can be a calming experience, and there’s no shortage of additions to make it what you want. Here are a few items you can add to your bath for ultimate relaxation before bedtime.
