It’s the most wonderful time of year. It’s beautiful, it’s magical…and Mommy, it’s all on YOUR shoulders. Literally. The planning, the decorating, the hosting, the shopping, the wrapping, the cooking…
Fellow Mommies, you need a MASSAGE. I know, I know… “But I don’t have time to be pampered. That’s not realistic. My priority is my family.” I hear ya. But you know what? A massage is NOT about being pampered. Yes, it feels great and will relax you, but Mama…this is actually about your health. You take your vitamins, you drink your water, you exercise and try to get enough rest (try). Your total body care, however, should include tending to those tight shoulders, sore neck and aching lower back.
As Moms, we adopt the motto “I’m fine” and often bury our needs, both emotional and physical. But our well-being is incredibly important if we’re going to have the endurance to be the best Mom we want to be. We don’t want to be crabby Mommies over the holidays…or ever! And if we’re aching or feeling stressed all the time, that’s likely to happen.
We need to reshape our thinking about massage. It’s not just a means of escape from the everyday, or a once a year Mother’s Day gift. It’s a solution to the physical toll of this wonderful thing we call life. Massage therapy is exactly that – THERAPY! It relieves stress, encourages relaxation, lowers blood pressure and helps manage pain.
Seriously, ladies…relieving the daily stress on your body shouldn’t be an luxury – it should be a routine part of your overall wellness plan. Massage Envy is the leader in providing accessible massage and skin care services, and they can help you develop a routine for your total body care. (Check out this short “Because Everything” video that highlights all the reasons you NEED to do this!)
Do yourself (and your loved ones) a favor, and visit a Massage Envy near you as soon as possible! Discuss with them the various options they have for your total body care (yep, that’s a thing!). Massage Envy believes your body needs a tune up as badly as your car does. Because your body works hard for you every single day. Because you are on your feet most of the day. Because your garden tub was taken over by bath toys years ago, and a “Calgon moment” isn’t going to happen anytime soon!
Fellow Moms, I sincerely hope you enjoy this upcoming holiday season, and that you remember to take care of yourself while you so lovingly take care of everyone around you.
