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

  • 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
