The Importance of Self Care

Self care is not just important for your physical health, but equally your mental health! It’s so easy to put “me” last when you’ve got work, kids, and a laundry list of other things to look after (including laundry!) When you’re loaded with responsibilities and life is going full steam ahead, you feel like there is no time. But you know what? You can’t take care of anything unless you take care of yourself first. Here are a few of our team’s favourite ways to find balance.

Connect: Reiki is an energy based treatment that helps the body reconnect with it’s natural ability to heal itself. Book reiki with your next massage and find out what everyone’s been talking about!

Get Physical: Sometimes you need to blow off some steam. Go for a walk, hit the gym, or challenge yourself with a bootcamp. Any physical activity is good for your body and will do wonders for your mind.

Make a date: Plan a night out with your partner or a group of girlfriends. Getting out with likeminded folks to blow off some steam can sometimes be all it takes to recharge!
