Just think of all the mean, stress-inducing things you do to your body all week. All the television watching, absorbing all that negative news you see, all the caffeine-filled coffee, and more. There are many things you do to your body to raise the stress and increase tension, but what are you doing to help relieve it and re-center?
Recently I took a trip to the Bonneville Hot Springs Resort & Spa. This is a trip that will give a tune-up to any baby boomer, and believe me, all our bodies need a tune-up from time to time. My trip to the Bonneville Hot Springs & Resort left me feeling great, de-stressed, and re-centered. I left ready to take on the world and all its stress once again!
If you live near this resort, which is located around 35 miles from Portland, Ore. and Vancouver, Washington, I highly recommend checking it out to get a body tune-up. If you don’t, there has to be a spa in your area that offers a similar list of ways to pamper yourself. Some of things you want to make sure you take advantage of at the spa include:
The baths. Taking the hot or cold baths that the spa offers can offer some great benefits. Check out their menu of options, as they have some that have been designed to help you relieve stress, do away with muscle tension, and even soften your skin.
The massage. You may be aware of how great massages are for your body. But if you are not, let me be the first to tell you that they are great for your body. They will make you feel great, help your muscles, relieve stress and tension, allowing you to walk away from it feeling on top of the world.
Mineral water. Spas usually offer a variety of ways to get introduced to mineral water, so take advantage of it. Mineral water is great for detoxification of the body and for re-mineralizing your skin and body. It also helps your skin to feel great and look healthy.
A trip to the spa is not only a tune-up for your body and muscles, but it also does wonders for the mind. It will leave you feeling de-stressed and re-centered, as it did me. It is a great way to clear your mind, re-focus, and let your thoughts calm down for a while. We live in a world where we are constantly inundated with news and information.
It is nice to give our minds a break once in a while and just allow it to relax and not have to think about everything that is going on around us. There is no better way to do that then visiting the spa and taking in some of the amazing treatments. A trip to the spa is something you will never regret!
