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 perfect trip at this time of year.
Why Now is the Perfect Time for a Spa Day
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?
