Valentine’s Day Do’s & Don’ts (Part 2)

Grand Life January-March small-page-004

Have you enjoyed reading Our Valentine’s Day Do Not Do List? Here’s a list of what you can do to make your Special Person’s Valentine’s Day that little bit more Special…

Do’s:
1. Send a surprise gift to your sweetheart’s place of work or home. Alternatively, deliver the gift personally if possible.
2. When selecting a gift for the special person in your life, ensure that it can be used all year round. Avoid items which say ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’. Go for something practical.
3. Choose something which has a personal touch to it such as engraved item.
4. Ladies, consider his hobbies and interests when choosing his gift. If he is a fan of video games, the latest version of his favourite one might score you high points! Plus it’s safer than coming up with original gifts which he might not like.
5. Try to make a card yourself. There are many beautiful cards you can buy at the store, but putting an extra effort to do something different and original will add little bit of romance.
6. Prepare a home-cooked meal yourself, whether its breakfast in bed or lovely candle-lit dinner.
7. Be romantic – make an effort to dress up and be sure to compliment your loved one. Even if you aren’t the most romantic type try your best on this special day.
8. Ignore you electronic devices, including your mobile, as much as possible.
9. Gentlemen, write a love letter to your partner, summarising your feelings, the reasons why you fell in love with her and what makes her so significant for you. It is likely that she will keep that letter as a reminder of the unique connection you have for the rest of her life. If the letter is hand-written, you will enhance the sense of romance.
10. Make an extra effort to please your partner, such as accepting to watch a movie that suits his/her tastes more than yours.
11. Offer your partner a massage. Rather than organising a day at the spa, take the matter in your own hands and do some research basic massage techniques. All you need is your hands, massage oil, relaxing music and scented candles.
12. Prepare a surprise for your Valentine when s/he gets home. Put little notes around your home with romantic messages or prepare a follow the lead game which will eventually lead to a surprise gift.
13. Relax, take it easy and make sure not to over do it. All it takes to make this day special is a bit of thought and fantasy. Making an effort should not be too difficult, since it is for that one person you share your life with.

So spend some quality time with your better half this Valentine’s Day. Book a couple’s spa package, a romantic dinner, a relaxing evening with some live jazz music or spend a few days at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta.

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.
