Relaxation and a hot bath are practically synonymous. However, more and more homeowners these days are opting for stand up showers in lieu of a bathtub to create more space in their bathrooms. Whether you have decided to skip the tub or recently bought a tub-less home you can still create the infamous relaxing experience bathtubs are known for in your stand up shower. Preparation. Start by cleaning your bathroom and especially the shower. Scrub away any soap scum or mildew that may be lurking. You want to create a luxurious experience for yourself and a sparkling clean room will start you off on the right foot. Let your family know you intend to take some time to yourself or even put up a “do not disturb” sign on the bathroom handle. Have all your bath items on hand before beginning your shower. To create a relaxing experience you want to be able to focus on your time in the shower without jumping in and out to grab fresh towels or a specific bath product. Ambiance. Part of what makes taking a bath relaxing is the atmosphere we create for ourselves to truly enjoy it. There are many of the same techniques you can use when taking a shower as well as some swaps you can make to recreate a calming experience. Begin by dimming the lights and even lighting a few candles. You may also want to choose a soothing music playlist for your shower if you have a waterproof speaker. Use an essential oil diffuser or hang some dried leaves of lavender, eucalyptus or lemongrass from your shower head to fill your bathroom with calming scents and create a spa experience. Add some plants for an extra touch. Plants like pothos, philodendrons, spider plants, orchids, bamboo, peace lilies, Boston ferns, and ZZ plants all do well in the low lighting and moist environment of the bathroom. Products. Make your relaxing shower a real treat by choosing some luxurious products you wouldn’t normally use for your everyday shower. Think items like a body scrub, richly lathering body wash, tingly shampoo or a nourishing deep conditioner. Go the extra mile by transferring these products to some gorgeous glass containers for a spa-like feel. You’ll want some fluffy towels waiting for you, perhaps even warmed in the dryer first and a bathrobe. During. Massage your scalp when lathering up your shampoo and give yourself a facial massage when washing your face. Try your hand at a little meditation or a relaxing visualization while in the shower to feel like you are in another world. Take deep slow breaths to release tension and stress from the day. Practice feeling grounded and in the now to truly appreciate this luxurious experience you are creating for yourself. Give moisturizing products time to really sink into your hair and skin. You can even give yourself a body massage while you wait. At the end of your shower consider standing under a blast of cold water before getting out. This will add shine to your hair as it seals down the cuticles and is great for your blood circulation. You may not normally think of your shower as a place of relaxation but with some splurges and a little time you can have a spa-like experience that would make even a bath enthusiast jealous. So whether you’ve had a hard day, grueling workout or all round stressful week go ahead and use the tips above for your next shower. You deserve it.

The age-old problem of trying to stretch your household budget is a challenge nearly everyone grapples with at one time or another. If you're confounded by the fact that your paycheck(s) seem to disappear within days of depositing them, it may be time to examine your spending habits.

Creating a written budget is often an eye-opening experience, especially if you haven't taken the time to do that recently -- or ever! Itemizing all your monthly and periodic expenses can not only help you realize where the money's going, but it can also give you a greater feeling of control over your life. As an added bonus, reviewing your household budget a couple times a year will also increase your awareness of your debts, your income, and your spending habits. Once you know how tight your budget is and whether you need to reduce expenses or increase income, you'll be in a stronger position to effectively manage your family's finances.

  • Creating a budget: Whether you prefer to use spreadsheets, software, or just a simple income-versus-expenses chart, setting up a budget will help put you in the driver's seat of your cash flow situation. While there are many distinctions between running a business and managing a household, there are probably more similarities than differences!
  • Identifying "money leaks": If your family's budget seems tighter than you'd like it to be, one possible reason is that you're spending more than you need to on some expenses. The perfect examples are homeowners' and automobile insurance. You've probably seen and heard countless ads for well-known insurance companies that say they can save you hundreds of dollars a year on your insurance policies. If you've been dismissing those claims as mere hype, consider the possibility that you may actually be paying more on your insurance premiums than necessary. It may be worth your while to have your insurance agent review your policy with you to make sure you're getting all the coverage you need and the discounts to which your entitled. The best way to remove any doubt is to get two or three quotes from other reputable insurance companies. You can often do this through email or online, so you shouldn't have to go to time-consuming office appointments just to get a few insurance quotes. To compare "apples to apples," make sure to use identical coverage amounts and deductibles for each estimate your seeking; hopefully the agents you deal with will remind you of that. It's also possible to save hundreds more dollars a year by contacting your cable TV company, Internet service provider, and cell phone service (It might be one company) to discuss ways your bill can be lowered. The first step would be to examine your latest invoice and determine whether you're paying for services you don't use or need. If you see charges that are excessive or confusing, don't hesitant to get on the phone and have those issues clarified. If inconsistent utility bills are a problem, then switching over to a monthly budget plan will make your expenses more predictable and manageable.
While there are many strategies for reducing your expenses and regaining control of your household budget, information and a healthy sense of skepticism can often be your most valuable resources.
