Without looking through the mail, acknowledging your boyfriend or having the ‘what shall we have for tea’ chat, I reckon you can be through the door and in a bath within 5 minutes.

I’m not concerned with therapeutic sounds or ambient lighting. Soothing music and fiddly candles add to preparation time but if you’ve had a particularly hectic day….throw in all the whale sounds and lavender candles you need. I just need some simple bath oil and a book or magazine and I’m in heaven. Plus, sweating is a known detoxifier so it’s basically like going for a run….sort of.
