3 main benefits of taking warm showers or baths

| Thursday November 3, 2022

As we approach the colder seasons of the year in Singapore, we usually find ourselves enjoying lower temperatures and rainier days. Once we reach November, we tend to start pulling out our long-sleeved shirts and the jackets we had buried at the back of our closets. The months of November and December are definitely some of the more enjoyable months in Singapore, giving us a reprieve from the usual humid and scorching hot days.

And what better way to enjoy the chillier weather in these months than to take warm showers or soak in a warm bath? A warm shower or bath can help energise you at the start of your day or provide relaxation after a long day out and about.

Warm showers or baths are also known to help reduce your stress levels and also boost your immunity system so that you are less likely to get sick from being outside in the chilly weather and may even help reduce your risk of being infected by other people who may be sick.

In the colder seasons, individuals tend to be more susceptible to catching a cold, and with viruses like covid still prevalent in society, it is important to take care of your health and ensure that you and your family are well-prepared and protected against falling sick.

Besides the many health benefits, a warm shower or bath can bring out, indulging in a pleasant, comforting, and relaxing warm shower or bath can also do wonders for your mood. So why wouldn’t you want to turn on some of your favorite music and jump into a warm shower?

If you are still not convinced of the many advantages you can enjoy from hot showers and baths, we have compiled 3 main benefits below that will definitely make you want to jump into a hot shower:

Improves Respiratory Health and Reduces Inflammation

It has been proven that warm showers can help to improve your mental well-being and also provide reprieve for orthopaedic conditions, as well as offer benefits to your general health. Having a water heater shower installed at home allows you to enjoy warm showers with excellent water pressure to wash away dust and allergens accumulated on your body throughout the day. On top of that, if you are suffering from a cold or flu, the steam from a hot shower or bath can help relieve congestion by opening up and unclogging your nasal passages, allowing you to breathe more freely and comfortably.

Additionally, if you experience any joint pains like arthritis, soaking in hot water is effective at reducing pain and discomfort. Hot water is known to soothe aching muscles and joints, as well as many other ailments. This is because the heat from the water helps to open up blood vessels in your skin and muscles, including those around your joints. Treating these aches with a warm shower or bath can help reduce inflammation and reduce stiffness in these areas.

Improves Blood Circulation

Taking a warm shower or bath can improve your blood circulation. This is because warm showers can help to expand blood vessels, allowing for better blood flow throughout your body. This also means that a warm shower may be able to help to lower blood pressure.

So, if you are someone that frequently suffers from cramps, taking a warm shower or bath may help improve your circulation and reduce the chances of these muscle aches from occurring.

But that’s not all that warm showers or baths can help with. Studies have shown that a warm shower is akin to taking a short walk and can help to lower your blood sugar and burn calories. While studies have shown these positive effects of taking warm showers and baths, before you change your entire bath time routine, it would be best to seek advice from your doctor to better understand if this is something that would suit you.

Reduces Muscle Tension

After an intense workout or a long day at work, your muscles may feel sore and tense. It is no surprise if you suffer from stiffness in the neck, back, or shoulders due to a different exercise set or from long working hours, leaving your body in aches and pain.

One possible way to treat this would be to schedule a visit to your local massage parlor, and while it may offer a good solution for these aches, opting for regular visits to a massage parlor is not always friendly for your wallet. Fortunately, there is another solution that is more convenient and budget-friendly in the long run: investing in a good quality water heater. According to the Mayo Clinic, hot water can help to relieve tension in muscles and joints due to the increased blood flow during a warm shower.

Investing in good quality, reliable and durable water heaters allows you to enjoy warm showers and baths at any time. What better way than to soothe your aching muscles and wind down to prepare for a restful night by taking a warm shower or bath?

A good quality, reliable and durable water heating solution can also make a difference in your shower experience. With better quality water heaters, individuals are able to enjoy a constant hot water supply and also use their appliances for many years, which makes their investments more worthwhile.
