Spa Day!

Every once in a while, it’s nice to treat ourselves to a relaxing body massage in order to let some of the tension go. After all, you’ve worked hard for months on end and it doesn’t matter whether you’re at home or at work. Stress is always there. And some studies show that the most common culprit in illnesses we contract is due to stress. Not surprising considering that we live in a fast paced world where everything needs to be completed in a snap.

So for this special treat, I decided to take up my good friend and beauty blogger, Alice’s, invitation to try out this hot new spa which happens to be near me. Jasmine’s Therapeutic Spa, is equipped with the most basic commodities a spa requires and is specially thought of to bring a relaxing feeling for us hardworkers. With the team ready to serve tea, it’s a wonderful experience indeed.

The masseuse, being specially screened and trained in some of the most expensive spas in the metro, pride themselves with years of experience and a license to boot! So you know you are in good and professional hands.

My only take in this experience is that the visit could have been made more memorable with wider tea options. Perhaps Lavander or Chamomile to induce relaxation before or after the massage sessions. Light snacks as well such as small sandwiches would definitely make the visit well worth it!

All in all, the visit is worth the hour’s travel and the weeks of tension released. Would I go back? Definitely! Maybe for a ventusa session next time. 🙂

A Dose of Peace and Quiet for a Fast-paced Lifestyle

The fast paced lifestyle led by most people today makes a rare commodity out of peace and quiet.  Finding a place for momentary solitude can even be a luxury for some, but this doesn’t always have to be the case.  Turning a small area of your house into a meditation garden can help you create a sanctuary where you can relieve your mind from daily stressors.  All you have to do is select an area for your garden, design the landscape and implement its construction.

Aside from plants and seating areas, you may also place religious images like St. Francis garden statues here and add sanctity to the place.  This simple home improvement project can give you a break from your daily hustles and incorporate some peace and quiet in your hectic lifestyle.
