Between work and the every day “because moment” that I face, life can get hectic for this mama. And now that the Thanksgiving holiday is around the corner my stress level has hit the roof over the menu to make sure there is enough food for the whole fam.
It never fails. Every year I vow to be better prepared next year and every year I end up getting the things I need at the last minute and having to deal with the madness at the grocery store and don’t get me started on the long lines with only three cashiers working!
There are all kinds of “because moment” that can add unwanted stress in our lives. Just take a look at this video for common ones that may be part of our daily grind.
I can relate to the lady working on her DIY project in the middle of the night while scarfing down pizza.
And with all kinds of “because moment” coming at us, making sure our fam is taken care of and that our work gets done, we tend to forget to take a time out to take care of ourselves.
Let’s face it ladies, if we’re the glue that keeps everything together, we need to take care of our body too. Like taking time out for a good massage to take out the kinks in our neck and back that’s brought on by daily stress. Plus, we owe it to ourselves to feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the world!
The Benefits of Massage
The misconception about taking a personal time out for a massage is that people consider it a luxury. But in fact, getting a massage should be part of our total body care for the good of our overall health. It’s not only about relaxing but pausing for a moment during the daily grind to check-in and tune up.
Getting a regular massage can also be helpful for those who suffer from:
Invest in Your Total Body Care
Just like we invest in ourselves to improve our skills, we should also invest in our total body care. And I’m definitely going to practice what I’m preaching here.
This year, I’m asking the hubs for a gift certificate to Massage Envy. I was on their website and it’s not only about getting a massage. You can tell they really care about our wellness.
You meet with a massage therapist for a pre-interview to discuss your specific needs and they use only the highest quality of hypoallergenic massage creams and lotions for your massage. Does that sound good or what?
And they want us to have a stress-free experience, too. There is a section on their website for those of us who are getting a massage for the first time. It walks us through what we can expect from a session. Oh yeah, sign me up for that peaceful spa-like treatment room!
We face a “because moment” on a daily basis. Whether it’s running late work or dropping off the kids at school, or getting stuck in traffic, life can get crazy. And when your body aches and feeling stressed a good massage is just what we need to unwind and refresh.
