I don’t know about you, but I am really ready for some alone and quiet time. It’s time to recharge my batteries and reflect on another year gone by. What have I loved and lost? What have I learned and gained? What lessons have I learned? It’s really been some year. I have a great idea for the best way to go about this journey of reflection. A day spa visit and some spa treatments are just what the doctor ordered.

 

The winter time is sometimes referred to as the blue season. It’s easy to get depressed and think too much. The days are shorter and the weather gets dreary depending on where you are living. Therefore, it is best to find ways to give yourself a lift. Contemplating the events of the new year is a good way to start. Plan some spa treatments for yourself throughout the year. At least every quarter try to treat yourself to a special day at the spa. Switch it up with a massage or facial, a manicure/pedicure, a little aromatherapy or another spa treatment. Either way, it’s ok to be a little selfish and do yourself a favor. Gift giving is a wonderful thing. But be sure to gift yourself as well. This will recharge and rejuvenate yourself so that you can enjoy this new year and be ready for all the events that are coming up in 2018. (more…)

Pay it Forward. A Final Good Deed for 2017

Paying It Forward: The Therapeutic Value of Touch

Aesop, the man behind the ancient children’s fables was by all accounts a wise man, He once wrote: “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” How true that is. In a world where we witness violence every day, a simple smile or opening the door for someone you don’t know, may mean more than you ever know. You can literally make someone’s day with one simple gesture and in the process may restore their belief in the inherent goodness of mankind. 

 

Another way of paying it forward for someone you do know is to give them a health and wellness gift, such as a spa treatment. Men and women alike can experience stress in their everyday life and a trip to the spa may often be just what he or she needs to relax and rejuvenate. If you know someone who suffers from depression, this is especially true. Having a health and wellness massage, getting a manicure or pedicure, or a facial can make someone feel better about their life by helping them feel pampered and appreciated.
