With the bad economy you may not be treating yourself to spa treatments. (I know I’m not.) However, during Wellness Week, sponsored by Spa Finder and other companies, many spas are offering massages, facials and other services for up to 50 percent off.
Now the catch as we’ve talked about before is you have to give up that email address.
The website also has an interesting wellness pledge and talks a lot bout how to find peace and center yourself.
Here’s the pledge:
I pledge to:
Change my breakfast: I will kick off my day with a healthy meal that includes foods like oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, seeds, nuts and whole-grain cereals and toast.
Choose to move: I will walk more by taking the stairs instead of the elevator, parking further from the store or taking a desk break to go for a five-minute stroll.
Hydrate: I will drink a glass of water before breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Connect with nature: I will walk outside, breathe more deeply and enjoy the outdoors for a few minutes each day.
Make my sleep a priority: I will build boundaries around my sleep by sticking to a set bedtime, and by not eating or working in bed.
Embrace the power of touch: I will recharge myself and others through the simple act of giving or receiving a hug, foot rub or five-minute massage.
Give myself the gift of silence: I will find 10 minutes a day away from screens of any type — phone, TV or computer and enjoy the quiet.
Have you been booking any spa treatments? (The lady that does my eyebrows once a year said she’s getting no facials booked at all.) Would 50 percent off be enough of a discount for you to book?
