In a time of social distancing, it’s never been more important to be in your best health, both mentally and physically. For many of our guests, a visit to our Spa is the perfect way to instantly destress and help relieve any tension or anxiety, looking after the inside as well as the outside. But while we may not be able to travel for now, we can take a few simple steps to bring a little Spa-like relaxation into our homes.
Firstly, restore some calm in your day-to-day routine. Every day, try to take at least five minutes by yourself to unplug and relax in peace and quiet. Even just taking a small moment to pause can promote mindfulness and help to relieve feelings of anxiety.
A relaxing ambience of the most important aspects of our Spa, so take the time to create a space at home you feel you can truly escape to. Clear out any clutter, play some tranquil music, light some of your favourite candles or bring a little of the outside world in with some fresh flowers or indoor plants.
Looking after your skin is also essential through these difficult times, so be sure you maintain a healthy skincare routine. Our Spa’s premium brand Germaine de Capuccini are posting regular tips and advice on how to keep your skin healthy at home so we highly recommend exploring their blog for some super indulgent self-care. We’ve been enjoying some beautiful weather recently so if the sun is shining and you have a garden or outdoor space, take the opportunity to pop outside and enjoy some fresh spring air while your skin is being nourished.
Remember, a healthy lifestyle is all about balance so once you’ve given yourself all the Spa-like relaxation and me-time you feel you need, be sure to make the time to catch up with family and friends over the phone, bake your favourite cake, learn a new skill or make a list of things to look forward to and to be grateful for. Focusing on the good and happy things in your life will promote a positive mindset.
