But did you know a hot soak can burn as many calories as a 30-minute walk?
A new study out of Britain's Loughborough University measured the health benefits of taking a bath versus exercising, and found participants who relaxed in the tub burned the same amount of calories as they would going for a walk.
The hot baths were also shown to reduce chronic inflammation and reduced blood sugar spikes after meals.
The study appears in the March issue of the journal "Temperature."
