I’ve taken a break from most things blog related because, well, it’s been a rough few months. Tragedy at work and health issues in the family have left me unable to write about much; my head and heart haven’t been in the game. Until now.
This is a quick post about self-care. We all need it. Now I’m not saying we have to go to the “treat yo’ self” extreme of Tom and Donna in Parks and Rec. I’m not talking about maxing credit cards on shopping sprees, but rather intentionally doing things that better our emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental well-being. This might include counseling, exercising, meeting a friend for coffee, getting plenty of rest, going on a weekend hike, driving with the windows down while listening to your fave tunes, reading a good book, and getting a massage.
I haven’t been so good at this lately because life has been crazy; however, I am intentionally pursuing it! I have a book by my side, I’m leaving for vacation today, I’ve started eating healthier again, I’ve contacted my counselor, I went on a hike last weekend with friends, we’ve taken drives with the top off the jeep, I got air in my bike tires, and. . . I got a massage and facial this week.
This leads me to Woodhouse Day Spa. Woodhouse is my “treat yo’ self” place. There is no spa as peaceful and relaxing as Woodhouse. Think plush robes, essential oils, and berry-infused water. Think expertly trained massage therapists and skin estheticians with calming voices and the perfect touch. I’ve been a visitor to both the Montgomery and Liberty Woodhouse locations and each has been a needed oasis. A time to feel spoiled. A time to rejuvenate. A time to breathe deeply. A time to clear my mind.
Trust me, whether you try a facial, massage, or sleep treatment, you will be gifting yourself some incredible self-care. Every single time I’ve visited Woodhouse, I’ve left feeling better about myself – the stress just melts away.
When life gets hectic, or the bumps in the road throw us off course, we often forget to take care of ourselves. But, after awhile, we aren’t any good for anyone else. And if you’re a fixer and a doer like I tend to be, you truly enjoy doing for others; remember though, like most things in life, it’s all about balance. So cheers to taking better care of ourselves and not feeling one bit guilty about it.
P.S.- The new location in Liberty Township is about 10,000 square feet of pure bliss. And, they are running a special this month- get a premium facial and receive 40% off skincare items during June.
Whatever you do, just take care of YOU. Yes, you are worth it! Yes, you matter!
GO THERE (Woodhouse Day Spa)! TRY THAT (self-care, facial, massage)!
