A Moment of Silence for Showers: Frumps to Pumps

Frumps-Pumps-Draft-350-231x300

Ouch, this one hurt to read. I used to shower daily before I had kids, sometimes more than once if it was a hot day or I worked out. But once the kids were born I hated how much time showering took in comparison on my miniscule time alone each day.

Inspiration I’ve Imbibed

Showers, yes take them and often. Schedule them if you have to.  There isn’t a whole lot more to say about that except that I’ve discovered that showers can be a great place to think or not. I’ve wept in the shower, almost fallen asleep, dreamed, prayed. I think or give myself permission not to think or worry about anything except the soothing water. No, it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes there are screaming kids, phones ringing, disasters happening and basically all hell breaking loose when all I want is to get the nastiness of a 90 degree day out of my hair. But it’s still worth it. I almost never feel worse after a shower than I did going in and I usually feel better.

Challenges I’ve Pursued

Buy yummy body and hair products and make you feel lovely. This is a hard one for me because I’ve been transitioning away from most scented products in my attempt to simplify and pursue a more toxin free lifestyle. That being said, after a terrible day I still have the guilty pleasure of using Bath and Body Works Eucalyptus Spearmint body wash to shave my legs. Find a way to make your showers something you look forward to and will make time for.
