Sound a little self indulgent? Great, now you are getting the point! If it is daylight outside, I can see the trees outside our bathroom window. I always think of what my husband said when we were building the house. He said he had them place the tub, so I could look out the window when I take a bath. Ah, true love!
I usually forget to grab my towel to make a pillow of sorts before I am in the tub and the candles are lit. I have to be very careful not to catch the towel on fire as I lower it from the rack. No, of course I haven’t caught a towel on fire before, but I can just image how hard that would be to explain to my husband...lol. I have found the need for these bath tub soaks more and more. I think I am addicted to them. Oh, well I can think of worse things to be addicted to, can’t you?? Let me answer that for you, of course you can!
Set this time aside for YOU everyday. It may make you a better spouse, parent or friend. It may make you a better person. Don’t feel guilty for taking this time to yourself even God rested on the seventh day. We all need a break, we are all human and we need time to unwind and reflect. If you are an IC patient, I think this will definitely help you. Just try this for the next 2 weeks. I think you will see that it will make you a less stressed, more relaxed, healthier person. Who knows you may even live a longer, healthier life. You can thank me later. But seriously, I hope you will consider taking some time to yourself to renew and recharge your life.
