Have a Zen Holiday with Spa Tips to Practice Every Day
With Christmas quickly coming, the stress of the season can make us feel more exhausted than energized. To help manage all the worry, we have put together our favorite tips to put more magic into the holidays with a bit of self-love on the side.
Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be daunting. So instead of stressing, try this simple meditation technique. Take five minutes in the morning or evening to sit quietly and focus on your breathing. If you find your mind wandering, try to concentrate on specific people in your life who you are grateful for. Instead of worrying about what to get them for the holidays, take a moment to think about why they are important to you. You might just get inspired!
Writing out dozens of cards is exhausting. Pre-printed ones are often generic and impersonal. So this year, why not add a special memory or wish for the new year for the people who mean the most to you? Simple recognition of moments that matter is what the holidays are all about, even if it’s wrapped up in just a few words.
Lugging shopping bags all around New York City is tough on both the body and the mind. Take care of yourself by indulging in a warming foot bath or enjoying a CBD Massage. A simple tennis ball can be used to ease tension in tired feet and a foam roller works wonders on pain in the back. No matter what you do, be sure to incorporate little practices of gratitude into your holiday routine.
Before Christmas became the retail sensation it is today, there was much to look forward to during the holiday season. Whether it’s baking cookies, singing carols, building a gingerbread house, making your own wreath or garland, or checking out a holiday lights tour, doing something carefree and fun with the people you love is a great way to enjoy a meaningful moment away from the pressures of the season.
All the rigamarole of the holidays is exhausting, so why not take some time out just for you? Here at the spa, we encourage people to visit the Wet Lounge to enjoy the healing properties of the saunas, steam room, hot tub, and cold plunge pool. Add an indulgent massage or facial to the mix and you’ll be revitalized in no time. Better yet, bring the friend that you’ve been trying to schedule a pre-holiday coffee with. A little time out for a few laughs and a double dose of relaxation will have you feeling like a new person in no time!
