This new year’s eve, consider a resolution that will make your cheeks glow and your heart happy.
Consider scheduling a long weekend, or even a week, at a health spa.
Many of my patients who have followed through on this (my favorite) prescription consider their health-spa visits life-altering. The healthy food, massage, long walks, and yoga sessions, lack of TVs, and turned-off cellphones helped them see how eliminating stress could lead to a whole new approach to good health.
If you’re thinking you can’t afford a spa visit, get creative. Barter with yourself and eliminate eating out for several months and shopping for unneeded items. The cost of a spa visit might surprise you–and think of the money you’ll save on medical bills by learning to reduce stress.
