Ah, a spa day. It’s just what you need to relax.
But wait. Isn’t a spa day just a luxury? Something that takes up valuable time that could be spent doing those necessary things… like work.
Actually, a spa day is much more than a luxury. It actually is necessary. (Well, relaxing is necessary – so why not relax with a spa day?)
Relax. Refresh. Restore. These activities should be an integral part of your routine if you want to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eating a healthy diet and incorporating exercise into your day are also important parts of a healthy lifestyle. And they tend to get a lot more attention than relaxing. But relaxing also is important to your health.
We’ve all heard a lot about stress and its negative health impacts (higher blood pressure, increased risk of stroke and heart attack), so avoiding those negative effects should be a top priority.
Here’s how relaxing can help:
1. It helps keep your heart healthy.
2. It helps your body fight inflammation.
3. It helps your brain work better.
4. It helps lower feelings of depression and anxiety.
5. It helps you be more productive when you do go back to work.
With all of these things in mind, how can you afford not to take time to relax? You will be refreshed and restored. And we can’t wait to help with your perfect spa day!
