I know this is a strange thing to miss but I really do and I feel like it ties in well to yesterdays post so I thought I would share it. The basic concept of taking a bubble bath, strange yes I know but I thought it was worth sharing and here’s why

When I hit a certain age showering just became faster and more convenient. But I don’t know about you there is something about a bath that truly impacts my tight muscles in a way that a shower can not do. The hot water acts as a natural  muscle relaxant in a way that the shower simply can not do, I am not sure what the difference is but I feel like there is one.

for those of you interested this is the exact shower bench (amazon affiliate) that I use and have used for years without issue

Do you find that a bath helps to relax your tight muscles or what works for you?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    I prefer a shower; I have arthritis in the hips & knees and I’ve been told soaking in a bath relieves joint pain. The truth is I find it too hard to get out of the tub besides I don’t like being submerged in water; I don’t even like swimming but I may take it up because it is a gentler exercise that most.

  2. I too have bad hips Betty and swimming is great as is a bath I understand your plight about being unable to get out of one I do too and thus an accessible tub may be in order one of these days lol
