Wellness Journey: How to Bring the Spa Home to You

You’ve come to count on the relaxing and rejuvenating services from a spa visit. When you make an appointment at Natural Body® Spa & Shop, we offer professional body therapies that detox and relax you with exfoliation and skin rejuvenation treatments.

We also want you to use self-care practices at home, however. A wellness action plan for your mind and body can improve your quality of life. Let’s talk about some steps you can take on your own to enhance your health.

Mindfulness practices

When you learn how to clear your mind, you can create a healthy mindset and greatly enhance your overall health.

Mindfulness practices are a form of meditation that include:

  • Focusing on your breathing in a quiet space
  • Noticing your body sensations from head to toe
  • Paying attention to all your senses (sight, smell, sound, taste, touch)
  • Allowing all emotions to surface and letting them go
  • Acknowledging your cravings and releasing them

The process helps you learn how to be in the present so you can embrace life and get less caught up in worry. It offers tremendous benefits, such as relaxation, the release of stress, lower blood pressure, improved sleep, and reduced chronic pain.

Mindfulness practices can also help you deal with issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and conflict.

As you keep focusing on keeping your mind clear and calm, you should see positive changes in your health, behaviors, and attitudes. You may also notice the ability to form deeper, healthier connections with others.

Stretching

Stretching your body not only feels good, but it can benefit your health in many ways by helping you stay flexible, increase blood flow to your muscles, and improve your circulation. It also contributes to good posture, helps to prevent back issues, decreases headaches, and relieves stress.

You can incorporate stretching with your mindfulness practices to help with mental calmness, too.

Skincare

The basics of skincare can keep your body looking and feeling rejuvenated. Basic practices include:

  • Staying hydrated
  • Cleansing your body daily
  • Using a toner
  • Applying moisturizer
  • Exfoliating to slough off dead skin cells

We encourage healthy lifestyle habits too, such as getting plenty of rest, having a nutritional diet, and drinking plenty of water. You should also stay away from tanning beds and smoking, and be sure to wear sunscreen when spending time outside.
