Imagine bathing while listening to a calm music, a scented candle lit, you’re alone relaxing and your mind wandering. Some of us might not have the time to do this but if we could, we should.

When you freshen up, you are more positive and more alive to face the day.  So greet the sun with a smile and a bath!
