Why Shower when you can Bath?...

Baths aren’t just for kids, and while most adults shy away in preference of a quick shower you’d be surprised to know a warm soak can boost your mood and energise your body, all in a matter of minutes. Check out these reasons why settling in for a nice long soak will rethink your bathroom routine: 

It will burn calories: 

Yes, you heard us correctly! Luckily, it turns out having a bath can burn the same amount of calories as a 30-minute walk. It sounds unrealistic, but science has proved that you don’t need to perform strenuous cardio when you could be in the bath instead. A study released in 2018 by exercise physiologist Steve Faulkner from Loughborough University in the UK found the mere act of taking a hot bath does indeed burn calories. The choice between a bath or the gym now does not seem like the hardest decision to make.  

Relieve muscle pain: 

If you do hit the gym, try hitting the tub right after. Immersion, buoyancy, heat, and vibration (if you’ve got jets) all have useful biological and sensory effects, many of which are useful to people with injuries, pain, anxiety, depression, and more. Step it up by using a jet bath which are effective in reducing stiffness and soreness, and some jets can be adjusted to focus on a specific area of the body.  

Catch up on your book: 

The shower is obviously no place for a stack of magazines. Have some ‘me’ time with a relaxing bubble bath, good book (and maybe a glass of wine).  

Soothe your skin: 

A warm bath in combination with certain essential oils, like coconut, olive, or lavender can better hydrate and heal dry or irritated skin. Plus, aromatherapy is great for regulating your mood or reducing stress.  

Improve your sleep: 

Swirling water and buoyancy promotes relaxation for a deeper sleep. The increase in body temperature, and the subsequent drop when getting out of the water also has the potential to aid sleep. As the body cools, its systems (like heart rate) slow down, which increases the feeling of drowsiness.  

AN INSPIRED FUTUREEnglefield quickly became a leading brand in Australasia, with the reputation of supplying top quality products that could be trusted to endure. In 2000, KOHLER U.S.A purchased Englefield, adding sanitary products (toilets), to the range, so providing the complete bathroom solution.Englefield is excited about the future and looks forward to pioneering more of the world's latest technologies and breaking the mould with innovative designs. Englefield cares about the details and understands that not every bathroom is the same and not everyone wants the same things for their bathrooms. But, most importantly, Englefield believes in delivering solutions for a satisfying experience, every time.TRUSTED BY GENERATIONSRoger Englefield, began his working life as a plumber in Waimate, New Zealand, but his trademark entrepreneurial flair enabled him to start a number of very successful related companies, in Christchurch, specialising in plumbing and large injection moulded products.In the late seventies, he moved to Auckland and recognising a niche in the market, set up a small operation in Glenfield, producing baths for a company supplying to the Australasian market.His son Derek joined him, and in the eighties, they took the opportunity to manufacture as their own entity. Shower manufacture soon followed baths, and innovative products such as the complete shower enclosure, and the Cabana complete shower with ceiling were developed. Roger, and his son Derek, continued to expand the business, exporting predominantly to Australia and Asia, and winning a plethora of Plastic Institute and Design Awards along the way.
