5 SPA ACTIVITIES TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT WINTER

Winter is fast approaching and gone are the days of wearing flip flops to the shops and having BBQs in the sunshine. But just because the weather is getting colder and the days shorter, doesn’t mean that the fun is over. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up to make you feel better about the bad weather and lack of sun, here are five spa activities perfect for winter:

Hot stone massage

Treat yourself to a luxurious hot stone massage. The heat from the stones will relax you while also helping to warm up tight muscles. If you’ve been struggling with bad posture or soreness, you’re sure to feel a noticeable difference after a massage.

Drinks in the Jacuzzi

If the changing seasons are making you feel down, a refreshing drink in a Jacuzzi could be just the mood booster you need. Immerse yourself in the water and sip a delicious cocktail or a glass of Prosecco while watching your worries fade away.

Pedicure

Athlete’s foot, dry skin and blisters are all too common in winter thanks to thick socks, new and uncomfortable boots, and a lack of incentive to pamper our feet. But just because you’re going to be spending the next few months with your feet wrapped up and hidden away, doesn’t mean you should neglect them. By paying attention to your feet and treating yourself to a luxurious pedicure you can minimise the likelihood of problems and leave yourself feeling a million dollars.

Skin softening facial

The cold weather can certainly take its toll on our bodies, making our skin dry and dull. If you’d like to restore a healthy glow in your skin, a spa break is the perfect opportunity for a relaxing and rejuvenating facial. You’ll emerge feeling refreshed, energised and ready for any winter parties.

Yoga

Hands up if you’re prone to over indulging during the winter months! When the nights start getting colder and darker, it can be tempting to head straight for the takeaway before cuddling up on the sofa with a pizza and Netflix. As important as it is to treat yourself, too much junk food combined with a decrease in exercise can of course have an impact on your health. If you find yourself feeling sluggish, drowsy or grumpy, it’s time to get moving. If your spa offers yoga classes, book yourself a place.  Although it might not sound like an intense fat-burner, it can be a great tool to aid weight loss while improving your mental and physical wellbeing.
