Forming the Ambience
It’s a psychological fact that our taste of enjoyment from a particular activity is elevated with the visuals first i.e. the better our mind is able to conceive the environment around ourselves, the more we’re able to make the most out of our experience. This is also true in case of a shower. Hence, one of the best things to try for making your shower experience better is to create the setting. Here is what you need to do:
- Get in the mood – To start with, you can dim the lights – if not turn them off altogether – and light up some candles. You can also fire up an oil burner to make the room smell aromatic. Feel free to try and experiment different things to set up your mood.
- Take everything you’ll need once – Pausing your shower in between for fetching a thing you need during the shower might wear down your shower mood. Therefore, make sure you bring all your belongings and requirements to the shower place before indulging in the activity. Put all your conditioner, shampoo, soap, lotions, towel, and other things at a reachable place so that you might able to fetch them, when you’ll need them, without leaving the shower.
- Music makes the mood – Music soothes the soul and so does the shower. This means the combo of these both can give you an exquisite experience.

Just make sure the speakers and other electronic equipment you use are kept at a safe distance from the shower. You can sing along the music to have a richer experience.
