You might hear people telling you to hurry up when you use the bathroom. You do not need to spend an hour inside the shower room. If other people are using the room, you need to be considerate. Limit your time bathing. You also have to go to work in the morning, and you cannot afford to bathe for too long.
However, there might be instances when you have nowhere to go, and no one else needs to use the shower room after you. If you are lucky to have this opportunity, you need to maximise the chance and use the shower room as long as you can.
If you have a tub, it will be a wonderful experience. You can soak your body in the tub for as long as you want. You can read a book, sip a glass of champagne or watch your favourite shows. If you do not have a tub, you can buy one of the many modern shower pods available today. You can isolate yourself while bathing and feel the warm water flowing gently down your body. You will not mind spending an hour inside the bathroom when you have a nice shower pod.
Take your time to think
Sometimes, you need space to clear your head. When you are around people all the time, it is difficult to think clearly and make the right decision. As you spend time in solitude while bathing, you can think about the challenges you face and what you can do to solve them. You can also find ways to deal with someone who makes life difficult for you. You need to let go of everything that you do and stay inside the bathroom alone to think. If it goes on for quite a while, it is okay.
Yes, we bathe to clean our bodies and remove the germs. Apart from your physical health, you also bathe for your mental health. With everything that you face each day, your brain seems too busy. You do not even know what to do first because there is too much on your plate. Therefore, if you have the time to be alone while bathing, you do not need to do anything. Stand inside the shower pod, turn the shower on and feel the warm water. You can stay that way for as long as you want or until you feel tired. When was the last time you did nothing at all? It might have been a while because you seem consumed with work and family issues.
You can still save water
It does not mean that you will waste water while you are inside the shower room. You can stay there even if you do not turn the shower on. You can also buy vanity furniture if you want to groom yourself without leaving the bathroom.
Again, if no one needs to use the bathroom after you, it is okay to spend a long time there. Do not bring your phone or anything else that will distract you from your “me” time.
