Why Now is the Perfect Time for a Spa Day

It was only the other day I was speaking to Ash and said, you know I think those spa days we took this time last year really did me some good. We need to think about making sure we book one in during the winter in future as right now really is the perfect time for a spa day.

Now you might be thinking why now? Surely the summer in the warm weather is better? So let me tell you why maybe a spa day is a perfectย trip at this time of year.

Why Now is the Perfect Time for a Spa Day

The Weather

Now bear with me on this one, before you think running to the hot tub is just way too awful at this time of year. Yes, there are those few seconds as you dash from the door to the tub that you think why on earth am I doing this, but honestly, there is something bracing about being in a hot tub in the cold weather. It is also likely to less full of people, as many people will be thinking I'm not going on there in the cold.

Of course, not every spa even has an outdoor hot tub, many are nestled inside next showers and steam rooms. Meaning there is no reason to even worry about having to step a foot into the cold.

The Chance to Relax and Revive

Leading on from the weather, as after all, it can leave many of us feeling a bit out of sorts. A spa day offers the chance to have a day where it is all about you. Allowing yourself to relax and be pampered can really help, maybe even revive your mind a little. It can help to give a small energy boost and a bit of an uplift in your emotions at a somewhat hard time of year.

It Doesn't Have to Cost a Fortune

You may think that spending some time at the spa will cost you a lot. However, the truth is it doesn't have to cost much. A lot of spas offer deals all year round, which allow you to go just for the day or spend a night and can include extras such as, meals, treatments and drinks on top of access to the normal spa facilities.

Spa Staff Can Help Uplift You

Before I went on my first spa break with treatment, I worried about all sort of issues. Would the staff laugh at the fact I still get spots, would my size be an issue? However, I quickly found that not only are they experts, they are there to help. They want to get you feeling better, they want to help feel rejuvenated and they are most definitely happy to help with any skin issues you have when you go for a facial.

So for me, winter is the perfect time for a spa day. It offers a pick me up, just when my mind and body can do with one and it doesn't have to cost a fortune when you pick and choose packages to suit you.

What do you think about spa breaks, is winter a perfect time for a spa day?

    I have never had a spa day. I got to thinking about this recently and I’m not sure there’s a bad time for one, but now would be nice.

  2. robin rue

    I’ve never had a spa day before. Maybe I should. It sounds like a wonderful way to relax.

  5. cristinaleau

    Now I want to go the spa. I agree with you, most spas are mostly indoor so the cold it’s not an issue. I do love to take long hot baths at home as well, so a spa day would be so great at this time.

  6. jmanandmillerbug

    I would love to have a spa day. Those so relaxing and so much fun for a mom. I am hoping that I can do one before to long.

  7. Alison Rost

    I think any time is a perfect time for Spa day! But I totally agree with you on this. It would be nice to treat your skin to a spa treatment especially since the weather can be harsh. I also would love the extra rest!

  8. Andrea

    Oh my gosh that is what I am gonna do for vday, I’ve been wanting a spa day for sometime now and i am really excited. I haven’t had one in a while.

  9. Joanna

    There is no better time for a spa day than in winter! Especially this week, if I would go into details, when the temperature has gone so low… I love getting myself spa vouchers from time to time.

  10. Farida

    I love the idea of having this relaxing activity. But believe it or not, I haven’t done this in my entire life though I have experienced being massaged many times in the past!

  11. Terri Steffes

    I cannot think of a bad time to have a spa treatment. It is a must on every vacation plus at least one a season.

  12. Nicole Caudle

    I would love the opportunity to have a spa day one day. I’ve never had a professional massage either, I feel like that is something seriously missing in my life!

  13. Everyday Made Fresh

    I’ve never been to a spa, but totally would love it. I think anytime you get the chance, you should have a spa day and relax.

  14. Angelic Sinova

    I recently had my first ever “spa day” while I was on my Disney Cruise last month and it was AMAZING! I am dying to get another massage soon.

    I really need a spa day! There is something very valuable in taking some time for yourself for relaxation and some pampering. I just need to find the time to do it!

  17. Jay Colby

    I’ve never been to a spa but I wouldn’t mind going to one after reading this post. Going to a spa for a day sounds like a great and relaxing experience.

  18. natalielovesbeauty

    My sister and I were just talking about planning our next spa day. We try to go once a year, we feel so good after!

  19. dearmummyblog

    We agree that going to a spa this time of year really boosts your mood, just as long as you can brave the mad dash from the outdoor hot tubs! My folks are heading to a spa next week with an outdoor hot tub and itโ€™s due to snow in N.Ireland!!

  20. In and Out of Vegas

    Honestly, every day and every season is perfect for a spa day. I live in Vegas where the temp will be in the 70s all week. Spas definitely are uplifting to the soul!

  21. Yeah Lifestyle

    Oh yes! We would love to do a spa now or at any time of the year…something so wonderful about being pampered and relaxing about the session.

    Winter is my favorite time to hop in the hot tub! Of course, I never want to get back out for fear of freezing lol.

  23. Corinne and Kirsty

    I would definitely need a spa day now! so much work and so much going on! And I am so done with winter too

  24. GlamKaren

    Do we need to wait for a perfect time for a spa day? I agree with everything that you said here. Our skin could use the extra rest and relaxation because the weather’s not been so good to it.

  25. Ana De-Jesus

    I definitely agree that winter is the perfect time for a spa day as well because it really can be uplifting. Especially when it is cold and windy outside, a spa day can be a great pick me up for your mental health x

  26. The Inner Circle

    I do my own spa day….I enjoy a couple of bean burritos,wait 45 minutes and then take a bath. I also lay down about 10 towels as well to catch the water.

    Best part? I don’t get cold leaving the bath tub!!!

    Tell Ash the cheetah and I said that spa day should be once a month!!

  27. Pam Wattenbarger

    I am way overdue for a spa day. I haven’t had a massage or anything like that in ages.

  28. TheSmallFashionista

    In all my years, I haven’t had a “spa day”. I think I would feel guilty for doing something for myself for a full day lol.

  29. Heather

    I definitely need a spa day. Today was a day where nothing seemed to go right for me. So jumping in a tub and relaxing that tension away sounds really good.

    When I worked for Dior UK, they gave me a weekend spa voucher to Champney’s and it was fabulous! I was taken care of all weekend. The staff were so attentive I had thoughts of moving in. Ever since then I have enjoyed spa getaways in every country I have lived.

  41. lavandamichelle

    Thanks for reminding me that I need a day off! Also, I totally agree that it doesn’t need to cost a fortune. I always go to the spa or nail salon on deal days or with coupons.

    I think spa time is perfect any time of year! But i do believe now is perfect since my skin needs to be rejuvenated from the harsh winter weather!
