The bittersweet end to summer is here. For most of us, summer means spending time with friends and family, enjoying the outdoors and making the most of the few snow-free months we have. With that being said, we all need a vacation from our summer holidays. Self-care is often thrown out the window when we’re busy travelling and busy with summer activities. In fact, a recent Birchbox study found that although 89% of people know a little bit of “you-time” can make a big difference, 40% of the population feel they rarely have time for themselves each day. The same study also found that two-thirds of the population feel guilty about taking time for themselves, with women feeling more guilty than men.
It’s time to stop the negative self-talk around self-care and time to start taking some time for ourselves.
At Achieve Wellness Spa we know just how important self-care can be in creating true health and wellness. Although our children and family are the priority in our lives, making time for ourselves is just as important. Whether you’re in need of a full recharge or a quick 50-minute refresh, scheduling a little me-time can make a world of a difference for your mental health.
With school right around the corner, why not take advantage of the kids heading back to school and give yourself a recharge with a little self-care. Take a look at a full spa menu to find the perfect treat for you and book your next appointment today.
Remember, self-care is a vital part of achieving a healthier lifestyle, and no one should feel guilty about that. If you’re looking for some more self-care ideas, Pinterest has some fun monthly checklists to get you on the right path.
