Did you know that taking a hot bath may actually burn more calories that a run? Apparently it is true which could explain why a lot of people go home to take a bath. I might just skip the gym or even a run for a nice bath either with a bath bomb or a ton of suds especially after dinner. OOOOH BABY! 

Dr. Steve Faulkner, a researcher at Loughborough University, says bathing may have similar benefits to exercising, including helping to prevent type 2 diabetes.

Also this isn't a way to cut out exercise completely because exercising does have anti-inflammatory benefits to help fight off sickness etc. 

"This suggests that repeated passive heating may contribute to reducing chronic inflammation, which is often present with long-term diseases, such as type 2 diabetes."

Maybe if you had a long day and don't feel like hitting the gym, then you should go in a hot bath instead.
