(PRWEB UK) 5 September 2013
Some find relaxation in their bedrooms while others feel content in the kitchen; but according to a recent survey, the majority of people have named the bathroom as their number one spot for complete and utter serenity.
An article published by the Express noted that half of the respondents in the study reported their morning shower to be the only time they can enjoy some much-needed solitude, with their busy daily schedules often getting in the way of a well-deserved break of peace and quiet.
Director at The Shower Doctor, Kevin Thomson, commented, “We often take for granted how imperative downtime is to our health, and with many people working longer hours – often at irregular intervals – the need to de-stress is becoming an increasing concern, especially here in the UK.
“But with the opportunity to truly relax proving to be a rare occurrence, more Britons are turning to the home in an attempt to allay their stresses. One such place that’s being turned into their own private getaway is the bathroom, with showers helping to clear people’s distractions as well as allow them to collect their thoughts without being disturbed.”
The study stated that in the average time of nine minutes and 22 seconds spent in the shower, typical thoughts included tasks for the day ahead, what clothes to wear and what to cook the family for dinner.
“Given we spend the majority of our time with others – be it at the workplace or in the home – the shower is only one of a few places where we can enjoy being on our own,” added Thomson.
“As a calm oasis for many, we should make the most of this alone time – as having clarity and focus will enable us to make well-informed decisions, as well as keep us at the peak of concentration. So for everyone steering clear of showers, take note – it’s good for both your hygiene and your health.”
