Immersing the body in water has been medically proven to be a very relaxing, therapeutic and help those in need of improved well-being. If you missed Part One and Part Two, check them out. Now read on to learn what you can do to turn your bathroom into a relaxing spa:

Bath Robe & Nice Bath Sheets. Nothing jolts you out of a Zen state like going from a warm, luxe bath to a measly, threadbare robe or old dingy towel. Get a plush terry cloth robe or fluffy towels that allow you to feel warm and comfortable.  

Relax afterwards. Leave the smart phone alone for an hour or so and just enjoy time for yourself. Get a glass of tea and read or listen to music. 

Want more coziness? Heat a towel in the microwave and wrap around your neck and take a deep and well-earned nap.

Multitask. Make the most of your bath by using the time to also give yourself a face and hair treatment. Both the skin and hair respond very favorably to the moist environment created by a steamy bath. 

To cleanse your face, apply a clay mask to the skin avoiding the eyes, allow to remain on the skin for 7-10 minutes then remove gently with wet washcloth.

Need to soften and hydrate your hair? Apply conditioner or hair mask to wet hair then cover in plastic cap and hot towel and allow the conditioner or mask to remain on hair for duration of bath for 15- 20 minutes.  Wash and rinse thoroughly.

Music. Play relaxing music to sooth your mood and aid in the process of relaxation. Visualization is also a great tool to enhance relaxation in the bath. Complimented by music, visualization exercises can transport you to your own private Nirvana. Caribbean beaches anyone?
