Helps When You're Sick – It can help to massage away aches and pains. Breathing in all of that steam from a hot shower acts as a decongestant and can loosen up any chest congestion you might have. It can rinse away germs you are carrying. It can help clear up your stuffed-up nasal passages. It also dilates blood vessels in your head which can definitely help to get rid of headaches.

Decreasing Stress – Taking a hot bath or a nice hot shower for no more than ten minutes can calm your muscles, joints, head, and your nerves. A hot shower is almost like a sedative and for some people it can actually replace the needs for pain relievers and muscle relaxers.
