|Do We Really Need All Of The Bells & Whistles?|
Buddy Guy adds: “Why did they keep changing guitars and amplifiers when they were perfect? They did the same things with cars, if you ask me. They forgot how to make them right, because they focused on style and bells and whistles.”
Tub King remarks: – “Now they even put lights inside the tubs for the elderly. The bathroom is lit already. Besides, I’d think it could potentially be an electrical hazard.”
Nicole Kidman shares: “I think candlelight is the most beautiful light there is and there’s something very spiritual about it.”
Suki Waterhouse agrees: “I can stay in the bath for, well, the longest has been seven or eight hours. I get completely set up with my laptop so I can watch ‘The Sopranos,’ put out some scented candles, music. I have a towel nearby so I can dry my hand to change the music or the TV. I make a little heaven for myself. And then I just refill and refill.”
Traci Bingham says: “I love to be in my bathroom with my candles lit, morning, noon and night.”

Diane Ackerman says: “Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains.”
Jared Padalecki declares: “I love cookies baking. During the winter, they have these candles that smell like cookies, and I always buy like a hundred of them.”
Tub King asserts: “My grandma used to call all of those unnecessary ‘bells & whistles’ useless thingamajigs and costly contraptions. Just another thing she felt would break down,”
Richard Chamberlain advises: “I’ve learned, I think, to be able to distinguish between the necessary and the unnecessary….. Saying ‘no’ politely is a necessity if one wants to lead any kind of stable life”.
Tub King asks: “So, you are in agreement? Tub King should focus on the necessities of the tub and only potentially bring on a ‘bells & whistles’ model if its customer base demands it and it is proven safe? It is after all, one of the reasons our products are a fraction of the cost of our walk-in tub competition. We focus on providing a high quality product at very affordable pricing.”
Demetri Marin concurs: “I am completely attracted to the idea of simplicity, or at least removing things that seem unnecessary when trying to get an idea out there.”
Peace Pilgrim pitches in: “Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest.”

Let’s look first of all at the true sources of your stress. Often identifying stress causes is easy. Maybe it comes from a job change, or an illness. Perhaps you’ve had a death in the family of someone close. However, identifying the “every day” causes might be more taxing. To find your true sources of stress look to your habits, attitudes, and even your excuses. First, do you explain away stress as temporary? “I just have a million things going on right now.” Yet you can’t remember the last time you took a breather. Second, do you define stress as an integral part of your work or home life? “Thingsare just always crazy around here, “you might say. How about this one. Do you blame other people for your stress? You become the perennial victim, because others are bringing stress upon you. Until you accept responsibility for the role you play in generating or feeding your own stress level, you will never be able to manage it.
and the way you deal with them. Each time you feel stressed, keep track of it in your journal. As you keep a daily log, you will begin to see patterns and common themes. Write down: 1. What caused your stress (make a guess if you’re unsure.) 2. How you felt, both physically and emotionally. 3. How you acted in response. 4. What you did to make yourself feel better. Think about the ways you currently manage and cope with stress in your life. Your stress journal can help you identify them. Are your coping strategies healthy or unhealthy, helpful or unproductive? Let’s now look at some ways to cope with stress.

Decompress. Place a warm heat wrap around your neck and shoulders for 10 minutes. Close your eyes and relax every part of the body. Better yet, try some warm water therapy. The new Walk in Tub that has recently appeared on the market is a perfect way to install your own personalized whirlpool in your home. It takes up very little space (about the size of a normal bathtub.) It stands upright and comes with a watertight door. You simply walk inside, sit down and turn on the warm water. The Walk in Tub comes with both air jets (bubbler) and water jets (whirlpool) to provide plenty of help to work out all the kinks in the body. Just recline and let the churning, bubbling water to do their work. After about 15-20 minutes your entire body is totally relaxed.
Learn how to say “no” – Know your limits and stick to them. Whether in your personal or professional life, taking on more than you can handle is a sure-fire recipe for stress. Distinguish between the “should” and the “musts” and, when possible, say “no” to taking on too much.

Exercise is the best way to promote good blood circulation. Believe it or not, just performing mild aerobic exercises is enough to improve blood flow. One trainer suggested:
- Walk for a minimum of 30 minutes, at least 5 times a week.
- Enjoy swimming, jogging, biking, trekking and similar activities, a few times a week.
- Do simple foot and hand exercises for 15 minutes daily in the morning
You don’t have to over-exert yourself with exercise. You shouldn’t overly stress your body if your circulation is poor.

But there is more. These tubs typically come with two systems. Air jets send warm air into the water to create thousands of therapeutic bubbles. This stimulates the skins and helps with circulation. There is also a control for introducing water jets. This feature will more vigorously massage the body and stimulate circulation. The jets are adjustable and can direct the water to any part of the body. Directing the jets toward the feet can work wonders. These tubs also come safety features, such as the low entry threshold, to guard against falling, and the slip resistant floor and seat. A convenient interior grab bar and easy-reach controls makes it a perfect safety tub.
