The season for giving..
Add joy to someone’s Christmas season by giving them the chance to unwind and relax with a gift voucher for their chosen spa treatment.
What could be better than giving time and relaxation to your loved ones? (Including yourself!)...
December is here, and so too is the silly season! It’s easy to get swept up in the chaos of the busy period and miss the chance to reflect on the year that has been.
Read on to learn more ways on how to slow it down this Christmas, points to reflect on over the year and mindful gift ideas for the people in our lives that matter (hint: you are one of them!).
REFLECTING ON 2018..
Another whole year has almost passed.
This is a great opportunity to reflect on your life and to take stock of the year that was.
Find moments between all the ‘busy-ness’ to stop and breathe. Reflecting on the last year is a great way to see where you are, to feel gratitude for what you have and to anchor into what you want to bring into the next year.
ENJOY DECEMBER FOR WHAT IT IS..
Family gatherings, social events, perhaps the wrapping up of your work schedule or even a pending holiday - however you spend this December, it’s probably going to be a busy one.
Amongst all the fun, crazy and chaos - take the time to appreciate what December is to you and where you find yourself at the end of another year.
SWAP CHEAP STOCKING FILLERS FOR THOUGHTFULNESS..
Think about what you’d like most this holiday season.
More time? Less pressure? More relaxation? Less stress? More appreciation? Less tension?
What you are craving most at this time of the year, could be similar if not the same as what your loved ones desire too.
The best gift you can give are the experiences and moments that add bliss and depth to someone’s life.
Swap those cheap stocking filler items for something of more value - and not in the monetary sense. The gift of time and thoughtfulness far outweighs anything tangible.
Often we can get so rapt up in ‘what to buy’ from the hype and pressure as December quickly arrives, the loud advertisements from the shops and retailers and all of the ‘must haves’ in the magazines - that it will fly by so quickly, you’ll hear yourself saying ‘‘how is it February already?!’’.
Finding quality time for our loved ones, letting them know how cherished they are and what they mean to us - is the most beautiful gift of all.
The gift of time, restoration and rejuvenation has always been a favourite of ours here at Eco Spa, and everyday we see the relaxation and appreciation on the faces of our guests as they walk into their chosen treatment - the opportunity gifted to them by someone who really cares for their well-being.
GIVING TO YOURSELF TOO..
There’s no one in your life that needs more of your love and your attention than you. Those important people and things around you (family, friends, work, etc) will only benefit from a happier and more grounded you.
In our modern society, we are so used to focusing on the people around us that we can forget to check in with ourselves and to listen to what our mind and body really needs.
When is the last time you booked yourself in for a massage or a facial treatment? If you find yourself needing an excuse to pamper yourself, then you may just have to stop making excuses.
December is here and it signifies the closing of another year, the chance to pause and breathe, the time to surrender to what is and to relax into the now. A massage, or customised day spa treatment is a beautiful way to give yourself the gift of time, relaxation and surrender - all in one.
BRINGING IN A NEW YEAR..
Treat this part of your year as a chance to reset. The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on the year that’s been, but also for the setting of new goals and personal desires to call in for the year that awaits.
Get really clear with yourself. What do you want more of in your life and what are you ready to let go of?
The age-old New Year’s Resolutions of fitness and health are traditional ones for a reason. We know how good it makes us feel and its positive impact on our everyday experience. But if you’re hesitant about another January purchased gym membership, another boot camp registration - don’t forget to think outside the box.
What’s just as important as cardio and meal plans?
Sleep, relaxation, mindfulness and stress-reducing healing modalities.
Massage is one of the most incredible ways to unwind and to really take tension out of let the body - you’ll notice the effects immediately.
Infrared Sauna Therapies are designed to rid the body of nasty toxins, as well as helping with pain relief, detoxification, increased circulation, weight loss, lowered blood pressure + cellulite reduction and even removal.
Colonic Hydrotherapy - Cleansing on a cellular level to change your health from the inside out, a safer and less drastic alternative to laxatives, you’ll often notice less bloating immediately after your first session.
These are just a few ways one can press pause and reset for the mind, the body, and also on a busy schedule this season.
After a long year of looking after everyone else in your life, don’t you think you deserve something this Christmas too? Put yourself at the top of your own Christmas list and your friends, family and body will be better for it!
