Resolve to Enhance Your Wellness in the New YearPosted on
As we move into 2019, many people take the time to make a list of resolutions for the new year. Most often, they involve new commitments to health and wellness – losing weight, getting more exercise, eating a better diet, etc. Often, people forget to add relaxation time to their list of improvements, forgetting how important downtime is to their health and well-being. This year, resolve to set aside regular time to de-stress at the spa.
We all live with stress – it’s just part of life. But excess stress can have negative consequences on the body, ranging from emotional to physical symptoms. People experiencing excess stress tend to have more headaches, muscle tension, fatigue, sleep difficulties, and stomach problems, as well as anxiety, irritability, depression, and a lack of motivation or inability to focus. Each of these symptoms, if left untreated, can negatively affect body function to the point where other illnesses occur.
On the other hand, managing stress can have positive effects on your body. One of the best ways to manage stress is to take time for yourself, to relax, unplug, and get pampered. Regular spa visits are a great way to make this happen – weekly or monthly – because the spa is specially designed to help you relax and unwind.
A spa offers a place to be mindful, to put the cell phone away and forget about emails, appointments and social media and just experience something in the moment, with a quiet, relaxed mind. Spa treatments like massage and bath rituals help your muscles relax, which in turn helps other body processes, like blood circulation, work more effectively.
A spa experience is multi-sensory, putting aside the haste and hurry of the outside world for a while, allowing your five senses to experience the moment. We tend to miss this in our everyday lives unless we specifically set aside that time for ourselves. The spa environment is the perfect place to make that happen.
There’s a reason you feel energized and refreshed when you exit the spa. It’s because the entire experience has given you the chance to slow down and focus on your own needs, instead of the needs of everyone else.
