Bath Time

Part of the best time of the day for a toddler is bath time. Time to unwind after a day of hard work in some warm water and bubbles. Only the finest soaps from Johnson & Johnson, some yellow ducks, various toys and some time to yourself. Hold the scotch.

 

Bath time is not a time to be skipped or rushed. Bath time is the essential ingredient in the toddlers’ healthy lifestyle. It’s a time to sing, to think, to play, to relax. The step right before bed time, sleep is that much sweeter and deeper after a good bath.

 

This is so popular amongst toddlers that many adults have even caught on. A good many adults opt for the bath over the shower. Whether it be during a vacation, at a hotel or even in one’s home, more and more adults are adapting to the bath; but we need more of them. Congress should be pushing this.

 

It is not about bath vs. shower, because we’re not just talking about taking a bath. It’s bath time. It is not the bath that makes the toddlers’ life so enviable, but the time they enjoy while bathing.

 

Adults shower, but quickly. You hear adults say such things as, “I’ll jump in the shower” or “Let me just run to the shower”. Experts in the field say that “jumping” and “running” are not a recommended activity to do in the shower.

 

Taking time to yourself is extremely important. It is something very rare for many adults. A solid remedy for this is to ensure you have “bath time” everyday. Bring some of your favourite toys, put on music, let your mind go. Focus on the bubbles, the warmth, the time to yourself. Johnson and Johnson soap adds a really special effect: you’ll even smell like a toddler.

 

 

Life lesson of a toddler #18: Take time for yourself and enjoy a long hot bath. It will add depth to your sleep and years to your life.
