Take a Mini Vacation Every Day

Make the most of the calmest ten minutes of your day

Parenting doesn’t allow for a lot of breaks and even less downtime. From the moment I wake up to a sea of children who have migrated to my bed in the middle of the night, to the moment I fall back into bed, I spend my day covered in kids and doing for others. I love being a mom, but I need the time I get to spend in the only room in my house with a lock on the door.

Unlike my husband, I do not take 30-minute poop breaks twice a day. Instead, I get about ten minutes of me time each morning to get away from it all. My shower has become a refuge from the chaos.As hard as it is for me to get out of bed, it’s even harder to get out of the shower, especially once I discovered the Heaven fresh Luxury Aroma showerhead.

While I relish my time in the shower, calling my bathroom a fixer-upper is a generous term. It wasn’t until I visited my sister-in-law recently that I realized what I have been missing all my life. The moment I stepped into her shower it was like my eyes were finally opened to the wonders of a great shower head. The water encapsulates you and wraps you in a hug of perfect water pressure while the steam opens your airways and refreshes you for the day ahead.

I finally got a taste of what it must feel like to be rich. While I have never visited a high-end spa, I imagined that this is what it means to be wrapped in the kind of luxury that is experienced by few and coveted by many. My experience was not unique. My husband also had the best shower of his life and we were online immediately to place our order.

The Heaven Fresh Showerhead isn’t just a pretty fixture. It removes 98 percent of chlorine in tap water, provides optimized water pressure and adds the vitamin C equivalent to 3000 lemons. For me, all of this just added up to an amazing spa-like experience.

The best part? Even after letting my hair air dry a bit (I jumped out of the shower and demanded to know where to get my own shower head), I was able to blow dry my hair for five minutes and have an amazing hair day. Coincidence? I think not.
