As thousands of people return to the daily grind of work and school, it’s easy to lose sight of taking care of yourself. You get distracted by work responsibilities, keeping up with the schedules of your loved ones, and managing to pay all of your debts on-time. All of this stress affects your body adversely, and before you know it, you’re body comes to a screeching halt. Fortunately, a day at the spa is the medicine that your body craves and improves your life in the following ways.
A day at the spa is not complete without a luxurious massage. Many people choose to get a facial with a temple massage before addressing the kinks in the rest of your body. For those extra sore spots, a hot-stone-massage will apply pressure and soothing warmth to improve your circulation. In fact, every massage improves the circulation in the muscles, which promotes healing, strengthens tissues, and aids in alleviating stress.
Improves Lung Function
Throughout the course of your spa stay, you will find yourself sitting in a steamy sauna with a custom robe wrapped around your body. The water vapor allows your pores to release built-up toxins, and the increased humidity improves the health of your lungs. With each breath, your lungs get an extra dose of moisture, which helps loosen phlegm and promote proper absorption of oxygen into your bloodstream.
Clears Your Mind & Refocuses Your Attention
Spending a day pampering yourself with soft, plush slippers, such as the thong-plush slippers offered by Fredi & Sons, gives you an opportunity to step back from life and clear your mind. The tranquil environment lulls your brain into a deep state of relaxation in a similar manner that meditation teaches you to let go of the problems in life that lie outside of your control. Once you have a clear mind, you will be able to refocus your attention more effectively and have a successful day when you return to your daily responsibilities.
Gives You a Feeling of Reward
Above all, a spa retreat should be your reward for all that you do. Every accomplishment warrants a reward, and a day at the spa is a reward that benefits you both physically and mentally. If you have been thinking of taking a nice trip to the spa, ask yourself, “when was the last time you gave yourself a healthy dose of pampering and relaxation?”
