5 Reasons You Should Take A Spa Break

5 Reasons You Should Take A Spa Break

I’ve had spa treatments before including facials and massages which are always lovely and leave me feeling relaxed and pampered but then I step out from the salon and an hour later other than silky smooth skin it’s back to normal. It’s been on my bucket list for a while to do a proper weekend spa break and last weekend I managed to tick that off but now they’re going to have to become an annual treat because I felt amazing when I got home.

We all need some time to turn off

We all lead busy lives and even when we think we’re relaxing it’s likely we’re replying to emails, uploading an image to Instagram or doing something else but when you take a spa break you have a chance to really turn off. It’s the perfect chance to start that book you’ve been meaning to read, or get back into swimming after a few months away from the pool.

It’s a good time to be technology free

When you sit around the poolside or wander around the spa it’s unlikely that you’ll have your phone handy so it’s a nice chance to free from technology and avoid having your mobile in your hand all day. We all depend on the internet far too much but how often do we read physical books, handwrite notes or be artistic and grab your sketchpad.

Indulge in some self-care

When you have a spa weekend even if you don’t manage to have a treatment chances are you’ll be taking care of your body from swimming, sitting in the sauna, relaxing in the jacuzzi or just relaxing around makeup-free on the loungers. If you manage to have some treatments then you’ll be taking, even more, care of your body, I had a full-body exfoliation and my skin was left feeling so soft I need to make sure I do this myself at home.

Chances are you’ll feel more refreshed when you get home

When you end up working hard and spending so much of your time pushing yourself to do the best you can you can become less efficient and less productive, so we all need our batteries recharging. Going on a spa break even if it’s local will make you re-energized and in a better state of mind to take on the challenges of life when you return. I tend to find when I am relaxing I get really good ideas for posts which are great to note down and revisit when I’m back to work.

Try something new

For so many of us spoiling and pampering ourselves doesn’t come naturally. I know I can feel guilty being at home and laying in bed with a facemask because I think I should be doing something productive like housework so taking time out to let professionals pamper you is an experience for many of us. Laying around a warm pool on a lounger wasn’t something that I usually do but it made me feel so good.

    I think we could all do with a spa break and its so hard in this day and age to get away from technology. I could do with a nice spa weekend!

    I definitely could use a spa break! I think everyone can always use a break from everyday life and it’s stressors.

    I think technology free time is SO important! We ban technology on our holidays, it’s so important to switch off and leave phones and ipads behind. I’d love a spa break.

    Everyone needs down time, it’s so important to recharge every so often. Escaping the screens and the stress is the only way to get back to zero and go back to being your most productive.

    Everybody needs a little down time. Heck, I know I do! It’s healthy for everyone – getting away from the normal madness is good for the soul. And the sanity! ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

    I’m already craving for a relaxing and pampering spa holiday. I’ve added it to my bucket list and hopefully will be able to strike it off soon!

    I mean, I don’t often need excuses to have a spa break but these 5 are going into my brain vault to come out the next time hubs complains that I’m off to another spa, haha!

  10. August 23, 2017 / 5:47 pm

    Amazing reasons! I never need an excuse for a spa break! I totally agree they are so relaxing and it’s great to be without technology ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. August 23, 2017 / 6:10 pm

    I love going to the spa! This is defo something I need to do more. I tend to do stuff at home more due to lack of funds though!

  12. August 23, 2017 / 7:54 pm

    You have won me over – I definitely need a spa break. I just have to get the little man sleeping forvother people first x

  13. August 23, 2017 / 8:14 pm

    Omg! I love this. I am massive on self care. Im a mum of 5 so i try to get at least a little self care in every week. I think a spa day is on the cards.

  14. August 24, 2017 / 3:47 am

    I love me some good relaxing time. Spas are one of my favorites ways to unwind and relax. One should always invest some time in self-care.

  15. August 24, 2017 / 5:06 am

    Having a spa break once in a while might be good for me. A break from technology as well since our usage of technology is probably off the charts.

    Both my OH and I really need to have a break, and a spa break would be a great way to relax.

  17. August 24, 2017 / 8:29 am

    Your post came to me at right moment as I really need a spa break. I want to be technology free for couple of days and retreat myself in a aromatic spa. I will look out for some spa deals.

  18. August 24, 2017 / 10:16 am

    I don’t think I even need one reason. I love spa breaks and I make a point of doing 1-2 a year. It’s such a great way to relax. I almost always book a massage too.

    I defiantly need a spa break at some point! It sounds like the perfect way to relax and get away from technology

  20. August 24, 2017 / 1:02 pm

    Spa break at the end of the week should be a great idea . But honestly I don’t like spa treatment . My wife love it so much though . My refreshing and beak time for free time is jogging around the village and seeing the nature .

  21. August 24, 2017 / 1:36 pm

    I certainly agree with this. Indeed a spa break is a much needed to destress and free from all the stress and tiring week.

  22. August 24, 2017 / 3:04 pm

    All really valid points. My mummy is desperate for a spa break but can’t justify the cost at the moment as she can’t have any treatments until she is better, hopefully she will get round to one next year x

  23. August 24, 2017 / 4:09 pm

    Well you convinced me. I really need to take a break from everything it’s non stop most of the time here unless of course I’m asleep which is never long enough.

  24. August 25, 2017 / 8:43 am

    Yes, I definitely need a spa break. I haven’t gotten one for quite some time.

  25. August 25, 2017 / 10:59 am

    I’m all for doing a spa break, sometimes it’s just nice to switch off, relax and enjoy a pampering session x

  26. August 25, 2017 / 4:06 pm

    Ive never been on a spa break, but I know many others that say it is very relaxing. I am sure you can be in a different space and zone to think about many different things.

  27. August 25, 2017 / 4:17 pm

    I wish I could go right now! Unfortunately my wallet does not agree lol!

  28. August 25, 2017 / 5:16 pm

    Love spa breaks and that desserts looks so lush – deffo need to book one soon and recharge the batteries ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  29. August 26, 2017 / 5:43 am

    I did something like this in July. I went away on vacation for a week all by myself and while I was there, spent a day at the spa. It was absolute bliss and I can’t wait to do it again! x

  31. September 26, 2017 / 3:09 pm

    This is a sign. I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten how to turn my brain off lol. But I definitely agree, sometimes you need to lock yourself away from the world for a little while to decompress.
