Maybe you have a great big lovely bathroom — lucky you! I have a relatively small, narrow bathroom. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a few tips up my sleeve to make that bathroom feel like time spent in a Spa.
I’m linking up with My First 5K and More, Running With Attitude, Runs with Pugs, Zenaida and Run Laugh Eat Pie for Fit Five Friday. Today I’m sharing 5 ways to make your bathroom feel like a spa (even if it’s old and small!).
1: Play some spa-like music
All you need for this is your phone, but you could also put a bluetooth speaker in there. If you’re in there while others are sleeping, you might want to grab some headphones. I like to take some tea in there with me. Warm beverages are so soothing.
2: Diffuse some essential oils
No diffuser? No problem! Just put a few drops of essential oil on a cotton ball. I don’t have a lot of space (or plugs) so I use my travel diffuser — it can be used without plugging in for a few hours (it’s chargeable via USB).
3: Light some candles or use some flameless tea lights
Mood lighting! There are even Himalyan salt tea light holders. One of these days I plan to buy some!
4: Invest in a towel warmer
I’ve talked about how much I love my towel warmer a few times on the blog. Even when it’s not Winter, there’s just something about warm towels that feels so comforting.
5: Throw a shower steamer or bath bomb in there
I have used shower steamers, and it’s really lovely. Unfortunately we also have horrible plumbing that seems to clog on the regular, so I’m really, really careful about what I put in there. Hence the EO diffuser.
6: Throw a plant or two in there
Bonus Tip! My bathroom doesn’t get a whole lot of light, but some plants enjoy low light and high humidity. Or try an air plant — I’ve never actually had one, but they’re supposedly extremely easy.
It’s very easy to turn your bathroom into a haven, even if it’s quite small. It doesn’t have to break the bank. Consider time spent in the shower or bath to be the start of your recovery post-run.
I’ve been doing a lot of self massage in my bathroom — it took me a while to think about adding in the diffuser and the music, but it is very soothing.
Do you have a great bathroom, or a small, old bathroom like mine?
