The comedian George Burns once said, “If you ask what the single most important key to longevity is, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress, and tension. And if you didn’t ask me, I’d still have to say it.”
The proof is in the pudding. Burns kept working until he died in 2006, at the age of 100.
The harsh reality is that self-care is too often the last item on our busy to-do list. Work life, family life, and juggling it all concurrently can be exhausting, overwhelming, and stressful. So heading into a jam-packed holiday season is hardly the time to stop, take a breath, and slow down… or is it?
The unseen stress that your body carries affects most everything in your day-to-day life. Imagine what your workouts would look like if you improved your body’s natural flexibility and relieved muscle soreness? Or think about how carrying around tension in your back or shoulders exponentially affects how you sleep every night which, in turn, affects your day and your outlook.
You don’t have to endure chaotic months with stress in your body and mind. Instead, make the wise choice to take care of yourself and schedule a massage at The Spa.
