Gone are the lazy days of summer, now the rat race has begun for many! My son just started preschool, so I'm waking up early to get him off and before I know it, it's time to pick him up, cook dinner, and get him ready for bed. As much as I appreciate that he has somewhere to go and I finally have a chance with my own thoughts, I see how I get burned out. Stress is unavoidable but when followed with a period of relief, it is tolerated by your body. The problem arises when there is no relief in sight and one can began to exhibit physical symptoms like headaches, sleeping difficulties and an upset stomach to name a few. So, much to my delight I was happy to find out about an event called Spaweek. This event allows you to go to almost any spa in your area and receive various treatments for $50. Considering how much treatments usually run, this is a huge break! Spa treatments are luxuriating and fabulous, but most importantly they give you a calm and rejuvenating state or mind, which is perfect for stress reduction! Check out this website: www.spaweek.org for more info and hurry, appparently, it has already started in select cities. Bye-Bye stress!
