Experience the spa lifestyle without the need of a ritzy spa visit. Sure, it’s great to go to a spa destination every once in a while, but for most of us, that’s just not practical. It’s easy and relatively inexpensive to enjoy the spa lifestyle when you know what to really focus on. The key is to focus on what you need to get healthier and more balanced. Wellness is a mindset.
Whether you are someone who needs to slow down and rest or heal from physical or emotional difficulties, making YOU a priority is the first step. Experts have lots of recommendations, but ultimately you are the one who needs make your wellness a priority. Here are some of the more common recommendations from spa professionals:
1. Eat Well
You don't need to make huge changes to eat healthier. And you don't have to change your habits all at the same time. It's best to set small goals and change your habits a little bit at a time. Over time, small changes can make a big difference in your health.
2. Practice Meditation
Often thought of as a hippy-dippy practice aimed at transcendence, meditation is coming into its own as a stress-reduction technique for even the most type-A kind of individual. Science hasn’t yet connected the dots between what happens in the meditating brain and the immune system, but according to WebMD, a University of Wisconsin study found it more effective in relieving inflammatory symptoms than other activities that promote well-being. The study also found increased electrical activity in regions of the left frontal lobe after eight weeks of training in meditation; an area that tends to be more active in optimistic people.
3. Give yourself Home Spa Treatments
There are lots of ways you can nurture yourself at home. You can take a warm bath, give yourself a body scrub, or try a home facial. Better yet, calm those tired and stressed muscles with a heatable body and neck wrap. Simply microwave a Bucky Heatable Body Wrap or Neck Wrap (or maybe both?) for 30 seconds. Lay face down on a comfortable surface, and lay the body or neck wrap over your tired muscles. Enjoy warm moist soothing comfort.
Make every day a good day with Bucky!
