Mindful Bathing and Bath Soaks

This is an interesting read about Mindful Bathing and thought it worthy to share.

Mindful Baths 🌸
Duration: 10 minutes – however long you need.

〰️Use when〰️ 💧You start noticing you’re beginning to feel burnt out or overwhelmed with life or a situation to prevent things from getting worse mentally. You can use the bath as a tool to bring your emotional temperature down on your metaphorical thermometer a bit by self-soothing and grounding yourself with your senses to the present moment while you’re in there. Then tackling whatever life throws at you from a less “heated” mental stance so you can problem-solve more clearly and logically. Self-care in the form of a mindful bath can help us reset a bit.


💧After something stressful happens to calm down.
💧As an exercise in mindfulness and general self-care.

How to mindfully bathe.

〰️Method〰️ Run a bath to whatever temperature is relaxing for you. Fill it with bubbles or bath salts. I like Epsom salts as they are good for relaxing the muscles. Add essential oil (optional) my favourite is lavender. Light some candles make sure you’re undisturbed and turn your phone off.

〰️Option 1 〰️ 💧While you’re in the bath listen to some music while you explore your surroundings using your senses smell, touch, taste, feel, see what’s in the room. Notice the temperature of the water, the bubbles and shapes that they make, the smell of the oil or bath products, feeling your skin against the bubbles and bottom of the tub, seeing the flicker of the candle and observing it, listening to the sound of the water, bubbles popping, sounds you can hear nearby or far away. Just explore what you can and when your mind wanders, which all minds do, bring it back to where you are.

〰️Option 2 〰️ 💧Set yourself up with a guided meditation of your choice. One that I used the other night and enjoyed was by Kristin Neff on the Insight Timer app titled “loving-kindness with self-compassion”.

I enjoyed the warm feelings that come with turning love inward to ourselves that is a result of this particular meditation.

‘Gal-entine’s Day’ this Valentines

Search ‘Gal-entine’s Day’ in Google and you will read:

On February 13, Galentine’s Day, a nonofficial holiday, is celebrated as a day for “ladies celebrating ladies.”

Not that us ladies need a day dedicated to celebrating; but we do think the name
‘Gal-entines’ is a touch cute and aptly perfect for our lady guests who love to spa together. All Stephanie’s luxury spa locations accommodate groups and some of our lovely ladies who spa book to celebrate Birthdays, Hen’s parties, self-care, or simply choose a spa to connect and be together in the comfort of a luxury space once a year.

Spa Group Parties


To bring the focus back onto ‘Galentines’ our favourite radio Hostess Robin Bailey is back and (wait for it)…

This year, Robin is boycotting Valentine’s Day, re-naming it ‘Gal-entine’s Day’ and spending it with her gal-pals at Stephanies Spa Retreat at Sofitel!

If you and your bestie would like to join her for a day of pampering, including a massage, petite facial and high tea, register your details below and tell us why you and your bestie need to escape and deserve a day of pampering this Valentine’s Day?

Then be listening next week and standby for Robin’s phone call to invite you along to her
Gal-entine’s Day celebration!
