Especially at this time of year, stress from work and home life can build up in our systems and have serious, negative effects on our physical and mental health. Taking time out of our busy lives might seem like an indulgence, but what about setting aside just one day—even a morning or an afternoon—to pamper ourselves? Just a few hours of self-care can improve our overall health in significant ways. And over the busy holiday season, we need to be operating at 100 per cent 24/7!
A morning or afternoon at a day spa is your ideal option when you want to squeeze in some self-love and don’t have a lot of time. A wide range of pampering services are on offer and you can expect a mini retreat. To enhance the experience, book multiple treatments, allowing time between services to enjoy the spa’s lounge area, sauna, steam rooms, and facilities for a healthy meal (or a Champagne toast!). Here’s a sample of some local day spas we recommend considering when you need a time out.
