Books and baths are the perfect pairing for any day, but especially on August 9, National Book Lover’s Day. Our mission is about supporting moms in crisis, so we know that even everyday moms find it difficult to steal away to dive into a book and a tub. We’ve come up with some tips to help.
Set a goal
How many books do you have lying on your nightstand collecting dust? You probably had great intentions of reading them, but never found the time. Pick a book and use a post it to put a goal date on the cover. Now you have a happy task on your to do list. It might mean you read five pages per week- all goals are personal.
Make an appointment
You likely have to plan lessons and meals and vacations and everything else. When you do, you put those things on your calendar. Your time out should go there too. Make sure your family respects this. You don’t bust into piano lessons to ask if your kids put their laundry in the hamper. You deserve the same respect.
Prepare for an immersive experience
For your book and bath vacation, details can elevate the entire experience. Treat all of your senses. We suggest creating the ultimate bubble bath with the Mom Bomb Bubble Bouquet. Drop a bubble scoop in to the beautiful ceramic holder, hang it on your faucet and watch the bubbles bloom. The essential oil blends will moisturize your skin while delicious scents like vanilla caramel and sugary cake fill the air. Our cruelty-free, vegan products are made with high-quality ingredients that won’t stain your tub- so no scrubbing later.
Self care is a trending everywhere you look. It is time to make it a trend in your own home. A nice book and bath vacation is a great start.
