Are you over worked?
Do you need to unwind and re-energize?
Relieve your stress with a perfect shower
Too much stress is un-healthy. It can leave us feeling drained and unable to go on. To prevent stress levels from raising to that point it is important to do little things for yourself that help you to reduce the stress, and to feel better.
A shower can help you to feel fresh and revitalized. Showers have a way of waking people up, both physically and mentally. If you are feeling sluggish and tired despite getting enough sleep it may be your stress dragging you down. A nice hot shower may be just what you need to feel alive and ready to go once again.
Here are some health benefits of taking a shower.
Hot OR Cold
CHOICE IS YOURS
Health Benefits of Hot Shower:
Hot showers can relieve tension and soothe stiff muscles. If you have a powerful shower head, even better! Let the hot water work like a mini-massage on your shoulders, neck, and back.
Studies have shown that taking a hot shower can amp up your oxytocin levels and ease anxiety. Anyone working with stress can use more of the love hormone in their life!
Under the weather and running a slight fever? A hot shower might be what you need to help break your fever and bring your temperature back to normal.
Hot water can treat muscular and joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle tears and muscle overuse. The warmth stimulates circulation and blood flow while loosening joints, tendons, tissues and muscles. While it may not cure the pain for good, five minutes under hot water can considerably ease pain, stimulate healing and reduce inflammation. It’s more convenient than a massage and more natural than medical treatments.
Clogged pores can lead to blemishes and a build-up of toxins in the skin. Hot water and steam open the pores of your skin, making it easier to clean and release impurities. Following with a cold water rinse will close the pores again and make your skin feel refreshed.
Health Benefits of Cold Shower:
Turning your shower cold for the last five minutes can help “shock” your body awake. This instant change in temperature relieves your body of fatigue and increases your mental alertness.
Cold showers are better for our hair and skin. Where a hot shower can dry things out, cold showers hydrate and help with split ends and dry skin.
Cold water can improve circulation by encouraging blood to surround our organs, which can then help combat some problems of the skin and heart.
