Valentine’s Day Do’s & Don’ts (Part 1)

Grand Life January-March small-page-004

Are you in a romantic mood? Have you started planned your Valentine’s Day for your better half?

Many of us work hard to make Valentine’s Day very special for our sweethearts. However, despite our best efforts, certain things can go wrong which may lead to disappointment. By keeping the following points in mind, you can avoid mishaps and enjoy a very special day with your loved one:

Don’ts:
1. Make sure that you don’t forget Valentine’s Day!
Write it in your calendar in bold red colour; and few days prior to the Big Day, be sure to input a reminder on your tablet or smart phone.
2. Gentlemen, don’t buy anything for the house, such as appliances. Don’t forget, you are meant to make her feel special!
3. Don’t repeat the previous years’ ideas. Although some of them might have been successful, it does not mean it would feel special again. Since Valentine’s Day is meant to be a special day, try to be creative.
4. Gentlemen, do not give the special lady in your life lingerie unless you are sure of her size and taste. She might take it offence if it’s either too big or too small.
5. Ladies, don’t get a gift for yourself which masquerades as a gift for him. He will most definitely enjoy seeing you in nice new lingerie, however it would be more thoughtful to wrap up something that’s just for him.
6. Don’t have high expectations. Keep in mind that your sweetheart may have had a challenging and demanding day at work. Caring for children and doing house chores are also exhausting. DO go that extra mile but be understanding if your partner is not up to doing something special.
7. Don’t spend too much, especially if you have shared account. Stick to your budget. You don’t
want your Valentine to worry about your financial situation because of one day. In the end, it is the
thought that counts.
8. Don’t ever talk about your ex-partner. Simply DON’T!
9. Don’t give your significant other a card with only a pre-printed message. Make sure to always write a personal message. It will only take few seconds and most likely it will be easy –it is for a loved person and partner. Plus it will add a romantic touch.
10. Gentlemen, don’t cancel plans to watch a football match. You can always record it. If watching a sports game or playing a game on your PlayStation is your routine after work, skipping it on that day and giving her all your attention will make her feel special.
11. Don’t use your computer after dinner; whether it is to catch up with friends online or finish work- It can wait until next day.

So if you’re looking for something special this Valentine’s; whether it’s some spa-time, a nice romantic meal, an overnight stay, or an afternoon tea, the Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta has it all. Contact the Team at this superior 5 star hotel in Malta on info@excelsior.com.mt or on +356 21250520 and they will gladly assist you.

Stressed? The Secret to a Healthier Life

Dec Spa Pkgs

The relation between physical and mental well-being has a great impact on the quality and length of life of individuals and on society as a whole. Mental well-being supports good physical health and vice versa, therefore it is important that we pay equal attention to not only how we look, but also how we really feel on the inside.

Busy work and personal schedule, hurrying from one place to another, getting stuck in a traffic jam, multitasking ….the list goes on and on. Over time society adjusted to this lifestyle and therefore we tend to forget the negative effects it leaves on our body and mind.

Stop for a second and rewind your daily routine. What does your morning look like? Are you one of those who get ready in a few minutes before rushing out of the door to a busy work schedule ahead full of deadlines and meetings whilst holding onto your favorite reusable coffee cup? Many times without even having your breakfast…Do you manage to fit in a small work-out before or after work?

As a result, such a lifestyle can eventually lead to the cardiovascular disease, obesity, anxiety, built up tension, stroke and many other complications. It is very important that we take a break for ourselves and every once in a while truly enjoy our free time whilst contributing to our overall health.

Whilst physical exercise is a great tool to create new energy, strength and is also fun at the same time, many people do not have time or energy to follow the daily workout plan. Those who do, will benefit from including a massage to their total workout plan.

There are many different massage techniques one can choose from and which are suitable to particular needs – whether you are more or less active in your everyday life. Nevertheless, it can definitely benefit everyone who is looking for quality time to relax and appreciate their body. According to experts, having a massage once a month or more is very beneficial.

Massage is a great tool with many benefits including:

  • Increase of energy levels
  • Improved ability to control stress levels
  • Improved sleep
  • A positive impact on mood swings
  • Expanding the vessels and therefore the supply of healthy nutrients to our body
  • Improving the heart blood supply, and as a result the circulation of blood to extremities
  • Clearing the body of all the toxins
  • Helping to prevent adhesion
  • Stretching connective tissues around the muscles
  • Minimising stiffness or swelling
  • Stimulating and calming the nervous system
  • Possible positive impact on weight reduction

A massage is a relaxing form of improving your physical and mental well-being and contributing to a healthier lifestyle.

Our team of specialists at Le Grand Spa can recommend a massage suitable to your needs. For more information or should you wish to book one of our massages kindly contact the Excelsior Spa Malta on 21250520 or spa@excelsior.com.mt.
