I’ve been very busy reading a couple of tankless water heater reviews this week, so the thought of flowing hot water is stuck on my mind. There are lots of elaborate ways to feel good, but sometimes, simple things like a hot shower actually do the job best. Sometimes, all you need is a rinse in some warm water to start your day right or to end it on a positive note.
So, if you’ve been looking for ways to change how you are feeling, a hot shower might be all that you need. Below are the reasons why:
Hot water is healing. From the ancient Roman baths to modern bathrooms with electric water heaters, plenty of cultures have used hot water as a way to cleanse the body and soul. Hot water is good at washing away all the dirt, sweat, oil and other stuff that stays on your skin, as well as opening those pores that may have been clogged with other stuff. You probably know that in order to wash your dishes or clothes and really disinfect them, you have to use hot water… well, the same is true for your body.
When you look good, you feel good. On the more spiritual side, hot water also has the wondrous ability to cleanse us and lift our cares away. With the simple act of washing away the impurities, somehow the soul gets a cleansing too. Chalk it up to the science of cleansing with hot water, or its more spiritual benefits, but either way, there’s no doubt that a hot shower offers an amazing way to heal — and to feel good inside and out.
Shower time is true “me” time. For many people, that time in the bathroom is one of the only times during the day when they’re completely alone. It’s just you, the electric water heater, and the warm water coming from it. Sure, you might exercise for your “me” time, but that often comes with loud music, traffic, or other distractions. When you’re in the shower, no one else gets to crowd in… unless you want them there! This is your time to relax and let your mind wander — even if it is just for a few short minutes each day.
When muscles are sore, hot water helps. Whether you’ve just completed a workout that’s not in your regular repertoire, or you’re getting on in age and even the activities of daily living result in sore muscles, hot water can be a godsend. The warmth of the water helps to open not just the pores, but the blood vessels too — so your body’s entire circulatory system is working more efficiently, helping to move lactic acid and other metabolic wastes out more quickly.
It may be something that’s taken for granted, but the truth is that a hot shower is something quite magical. So the next time you’re feeling stressed out, overworked, or just plain sore from doing too much, a quick rinse may be all you need. Those are the reasons why I’m looking to buy a tankless water heater. And thanks to reviews online, it seems that my search will be as pleasant as the shower itself. 🙂
