Setting aside time to take care of yourself can be difficult. Whether you are juggling a hectic work schedule with family life, demands of friends and commitments, or just a partner and hobbies, being able to carve out time to self-nurture is important.
At Elements Massage Paradise Valley, we can help you out. While we can’t tell your co-worker that you are unavailable to plan a baby shower or your sister that you won’t be traveling for the holiday weekend, we can assist you in making the most of your “me” time.
To develop a healthy practice of self-care, you need to set aside time just for you. Our recommendations include:
Booking regular massages with our stellar team is a great way to dedicate time to your health and wellness. Not to mention, massage can release tension, address areas of pain, and diminish stress while allowing you quiet time to reflect.
The perfect complement to massage, yoga is a gentle form of exercise that involves much-needed slowness and awareness of breath and body. Committing to a few yoga sessions a week is an excellent way of getting in touch with yourself.
Walking is said to stoke creativity. The cadence of footfall and physical wandering can serve your mind to restore energy and reset your system. If you walk, try not to listen to music, instead just pay attention to the world around you.
There’s something to be said about dining alone. While uncomfortable at first, making a practice of eating a meal in public solo is an adventure in getting to know yourself better.
