Most of us look for ways to unwind and relax after a long day at work, but we have different ways of finding relaxation. There are those who go drinking with their friends, or stay home and watch a movie. Others prefer getting a massage either from a professional masseuse or by spending time in a massage bathtub. This type of bathtub has, in fact, become more popular in recent years. This is why manufacturers have begun creating and releasing several variations of this tub into the market, thus giving people more options and making the massage bathtub a lot less expensive than before.

Living or traveling in an extreme situation? The following is a real life scenario that our friends and several internet readers have gotten a kick out of. Yes, at least for this summer, this is how we do it. No, I’m not kidding. Read on.
Due to an extremely small water heater and the fact that our ground water is the same temperature as the lake (a degree or two above freezing), we have developed this technique for shower survival. It’s also a handy strategy to use on the road: desert camps with limited water supply tanks, solar shower bags, hostels where hot water is in short supply, etc. Read more »
I tend to have great ideas when I’m in the shower. I don’t know what it is exactly. The massage effect of the jets of water? The effect of water ionization? But I would say that the percentage of good ideas I’ve had while taking a shower is higher than during other activities. Are you a shower genius too?
Anytime I’m struggling with a choice I need to make or an opportunity I’m hoping will move from an idea to a vision, my brilliant coach, Jille Bartolome, tells me to get in the shower (or jump on my trampoline). And no, it’s not because she can smell me cross-country or thinks I could use more cardio, but rather because it will get me out of my head and back into a trusting place. So often we know our right answers and believe that that call we are waiting for will happen. We just need to exhibit some patience, and more importantly, we need to align our thoughts and our feelings with our actions. It’s one thing to say to yourself, I will get this job or I will start this new business or new stream of revenue. It’s an entirely different thing to actually stop second-guessing our deep knowing, live our best life starting today, and wake up feeling jazzed and sustain our enthusiasm throughout the natural hiccups in a day.

However, others are saying that there’s no point, as you essentially sweat while in the deepest part of your sleep when your heart rate races during some stages of REM. So basically you wake up slightly dirty anyway.
But then if you go to bed somewhat dirty planning to just shower in the morning, that might dirty the bed itself faster.
But if you shower before bed, then you wake up slightly dirty and go into the day not exactly the freshest.
Then you have some people say showering twice a day is overkill…!
So what’s the best routine in this case? Morning showering, bedtime showering, or twice a day showering?!
You enter the Roman-Irish bath in the cold room (Frigidarium). In this pleasant thermal spring hall, you take off your clothes and shower. Read more »
The quality of our drinking water is a major determinant of our health and wellbeing. It is important to consider not only the presence of pathogens or contaminants, but also the routine addition of chemicals that may cause us harm. Chlorine is a chemical typically used as a disinfectant in public water supplies as an effective way to reduce the level of pathogenic bacteria in our drinking water. Read more »
During the past 25 years, I’ve asked more than 10,000 people where and when they get their best ideas. I get all kinds of answers, but the one that has always fascinated me is “the shower” — maybe because I also get so many of my good ideas there.
And so, at the risk of overstating my case, I hereby offer you 20 reasons WHY the shower is so conducive to new ideas.
1. Showering signals “a new day” or “new beginning.”
2. You’re usually alone, with time to reflect.
3. Interruptions are rare.
4. The rush of water creates a kind of “white noise” that makes concentration easier.
5. Shower stalls look like little incubation chambers.
6. Water is associated with “contemplation” (i.e. sitting near a river, lake, or ocean.)

There are few things that we should keep in our house. In most cases, we think of money over our ease of living. But the importance of those accessories and appliances are immense to simplify our living. Many accessories have been brought forward to improve the form of your bathroom by all means. The introduction of bathroom radiators is an aspect that has shown how greatly this private place is valued.
Towel radiators are accessories that are used in the drying of towels both in your bathroom and in the kitchen. They have become one of the permanent necessities which help in reducing dampness in your bathroom.
They are built by the steel tubes which are later painted white or chrome to suit your choice. These radiators are commonly used in residential homes, by architects’ in different construction companies and by several designers. Read more »
When we need to go to the toilet we often refer to it as a bathroom. This is sad but many people treat the bathroom in the same way neglecting this room.

This is up to you to decide but you can make even this small space look great and visually enlarge it.
Enhanced comfort is necessary for the part of your apartment where you refresh yourself. Here are recommendations for you that will make your bathroom bigger: Read more »
