Hey y’all welcome to my section on wellness! With everything going on in our lives it is more important than ever to take care of ourselves, and an easy way to relax, unwind, and take care of yourself physically and mentally is by getting a massage.
Massages to me, are things that I budget out for once a month, as a part of my stress relief. I tend to hold tension in my shoulders, which can cause neck and shoulder pain, not to mention headaches, and is just generally bad for you. An easy way for me to fix this is with a 60 minute stress relief massage. It’s amazing, I get to just drift away into zen mode for an hour, and I always feel so much better afterwards. Maybe a little sore depending on how stressed I was that month, but you get the idea.
I’m big on saving money, and a lot of people ask why I make that a priority in my life since they can range anywhere from $30-$100 depending on where you go. I make sure to get a massage each month because I know that stress is dangerous for my health, and this is something that really helps it. To me, that makes it completely worth the cost.
Sometimes, we have to just splurge and spend money on ourselves, especially when it’s for the good of our health. Not only are massages good for stress relief, but they improve circulation as well, and obviously, we all need good circulation. I highly recommend if you’ve never had one before but have considered it that you go give it a try. I got hooked, and I’m sure you will too!
In summer, your pets may roam a bit more, so make sure your pet shots are up to date.
